First time reviewing an old favorite. Pours from the 750ml bottle into a Duvel tulip a pale clody golden-yellow with a thick bubbly white head. Excellent retention.

Nose is strong yeast, very fruity (bananas, peaches, lemons), and spicy. Slight alcohol aroma is also detectable.

Very citrusy and mildly hopped. There's a whole bouquet of fruit flavors - banana, peach, lemon, orange peel, and apricot along with a nice helping of wheat and spices. Why can't all Canadian beers taste like this?

Very crisp citric mouthfeel with a subtle warming sensation from the alcohol. Very palatable and drinkable, the only hinderince being the strong ABV. Excellently crafted and balanced; it's brews like this that make brewing seem like a true art form.

It was no surprise to me that Unibroue had hired a brewmaster from Belgium to brew beers for them. La Fin du Monde puts me in mind of a well-done Belgian strong ale. ( I know...it is a tripel) This beer is superb! Radiantly hazy golden color, beautiful head that, while it doesn't last very long (to be expected at 9%) does leave a nice fine lacing on the glass. The aroma is (to my mind anyway) magnificent! Fruity,malty with just a touch of herbalness from the hops faint whiff of alcohol in the nose, I usually find myself smelling it before every sip.

The flavor is wonderful too. Touch of maltiness, slight notes of cardamom, enough bitterness to just balance it, the alcohol even adds a nice note! I love this beer and have started keeping a few on hand at all times. I find the drinkability to be excellent as well despite the strength. Truly a world class brew!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pale, cloudy yellow with an enormous white head; good lacing

Smell: Bananas and a touch of clove; undertones of candi sugar and lemon

Taste: Starts with the banana and candi sugar flavors; by mid-palate, pears and other light fruits arrive along with a lemony bitterness; after the swallow, the pear and stone fruit flavors build into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with prickly carbonation

Drinkability: Very tasty, with a distinct yeasty character; well made - as good a tripel as you will find

A: Pours a hazy, cloudy Yellow-orange. nice head.

S: Lots of sweet aromas here...bananas, Spice, some citrus. The alcohol is noticeable but Nice!

T: Classic for the style - Duvels long lost bro!

M: Nearly perfect..well carbonated...neither too watery, nor too heavy.

D: Insanely good stuff...this is a beer that you could easily drink too much of...

One of my all time favorites from the great north...while I prefer Duvel, this is a world class beer.
