Great beer! I tried this at a beef fest about six months ago and really liked it. I saw this on the menu last night and couldn't wait to try it in a much larger quantity. It didn't disappoint. Very nice pour with a perfect smell for a belgian pale. Tastes delicious and was smooth the whole way down...

Pours a gorgeous crisp golden with a monsterous head that will rise from the glass. The smell is of banana yeast and butter cups. A nice buttered bread with honey tones. The taste is a banana spice with a nice sweet banana breat nutty finish. A well rounded explosive beer. Very nice.

Best before 10-02-11 printed on back label. This gem has been stored in my 50F dark, cement floor, cinder block cellar for about a year now. CANNOT believe I haven't formally reviewed thi sbrew yet. I've enjoyed this offering from Unibrew for many years now.

Poured into my Chimay chalice - stirred yeast and all. The audibly fizzy bright white head starts loose and lumpy, then settles to a thin-edged perimeter with a convex mound in the center. The dirty orange colored brew is alive with carbonation. Fine and boisterous bubble action is making me salivate. Drooping lines and splotches of lace sporadically present.

Such a succulent and yeasty smelling ale. Tons of creme fresh notes. Mostly sweet, with just a touch of yeasty-tart tinge. A fresh bouquet of vanilla and fresh sourdough bread is prevalent. Reminds me of vanilla (batter & frosting) birthday cake. Upon smelling this for a few minutes, I do feel like it's my special day.

Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. And Mmmm. The scent purely and accurately translates into the flavor. A hint of white pepper from the belgian yeast cloaks any discernible alcohol notes. The yeasty sourness is restrained enough to not take center stage, but does provide a perfect balance to this luscious, sweet elixir. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with the perfect amount of ultra fine and tongue tingling carbonation. It coats and penetrates all surfaces and crevices in the mouth, giving life to everything it touches. The finish is slightly spicy and a tad dry.

Drinkability is PERFECT. The 9% ABV is very deceiving and could prove weighty if over indulged. Good thing I'm nursing this 12 oz. bottle.

Canada does Belgium proud with their masterful rendition of a Triple. I prefer this to many Belgian offering, as a matter of fact. The softness. The sweet warmth. The marvel. World class in my book.

La Fin Du Monde is a hazy peach color with a beautiful 3" white rocky head. The head has great retention and settles down to a cap after a while. Nice lacing.

Aroma -- Floral and light perfume. Tangerine/pear. Spice. Slightest bit of skunk.

Taste -- Delicate fruit flavor of tangerine and apricot. Flash of tangy sour citrus. Powdery yeast. Pepper/spice. Light bitter bite in finish. Alcohol not too evident in flavor.

Mouthfeel -- Soft mouthfeel. Dry. Lots of good carbonation. Very champagne-like.

Drinkability -- Nice beer. Good drinkability. No more than one .750 every once in a while. Watch out for that abv. Unibroue is top notch!

750ml bottle with a picture of one state of Canada.

Appearance is nice with a big head that falls very thin and just barely breaks, and it has a good lacing.The color is light gold to brown with hints of orange.

Smell has orange, banana-almost like a hefeweizen, apple.

Taste is light and hard to identify at first. It has cloves, orange and banana are very apparant and fruity. Very light in body and warming to the insides.

Mouthfeel isn't very well carbonated and is a bit watery, still somehow very appealing.

I like this and will look for another bottle, hopefully fresher.

A- This is the 1st tripel I've ever had and right off the bat, I'm impressed with the 750ml bottle, and the cork top plus wire that's holding it down. The cork popped once taken out, like a semi-sparkling wine...great so far. I soft poured on an angle into my glass and only filled about half way due to the impressive foamy white head that kept swelling. The coloring is a hazy amber/off orange with some noticable carbonation. This looks like a real winner!

S- This is very complex! First thing I noticed was a rich yeasty aroma, like fresh bread with melted butter on it. There's definately some baking spices in there as well, plus flowery alcohol aromas, some nuttiness, lots of malt and even some tropical fruits. Every whiff brings something different to the table on this one!

T- Again, many different flavors come to life in this. First thing that I notice is the spiciness of the beer. Reminds me somewhat of gingerbread cookies. I tasted the tropical fruits, and even some tart citrus notes. Once through these tastes, the maltiness of the brew comes to life, especially in the finish, along with some balanced hops and there is a heavy yeasty flavor that I detected. Great stuff!

M- I have to agree with a previous review in the fact that this beer seems to get a fuller body the more it is enjoyed. I noticed as I made my second pour that the consistancy was thicker than the first. The first half is much more bubbly and the second half is very creamy on the palate....I like it more the longer I'm drinking it.

D- I've decided that this is a very near perfect beer, but it is full bodied....that and the fact that I had 3/4 of a litre and I've had as much as I can handle for a night. This would definately be enjoyable with an old cheddar cheese. I recommend this beer for anyone who truly enjoys the finer brews in life and think this would be a great beer to celebrate with! With that said though, this beer is, in my opinion, a sipping beer and a single bottle would suffice for an entire evening.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Chimay chalice. Pours a hazy goldish color with a huge white head that takes nearly the entire time to drink to fully dissapate. Lacing is great on the sides of the glass.

Aroma is wonderful! Great musty Belgian yeast aromas with lots of citrus notes and toasted malts...some lighter crisp fruits too; grapefruit maybe...pear? Who cares...great aroma. Very faint booze smell.

Flavor is also great...sweet, tangy...perfect carnonation. Lot's of citrus and honey to counter balance eachother. Musty grapefruit flavors, Belgian yeast...finishes slightly dry.

Mouthfeel is slightly complex and full bodied for a Belgian Tripel. Carbonation is perfect. This beer is definitely a room temp beer. Wonderful!

750 mL bottle, corked & caged, 2004 vintage. Pours a light golden amber into an oversized wineglass with a fluffy and billowy white head. Lovely citrus and yeasty-bready malt aroma; sweet orange and peach scents abound. Taste is a dry-sweet peach bread with golden raisins; spicy yeast and a strong dry finish. Mouthfeel is full, creamy, and juicy. The 9% alcohol is utterly imperceptible. Absolutely sublime.

Another one from my wife, great pic babe!
Poured into a pint glass this brew is a pale wheat color with a clean, crisp, white head that dissipated quickly and didn't leave any lacing to speak of even with the high alcohol content. The nose is of thick floral beds, lots of clove, and sweet honey. The taste is heavy clove and warm alcohol coats your throat. There is a slight kick, but a good balance and if sipped rather than drank, it leaves a tingling sensation in your throat. This has a thin body, but moderate carbonation. This is a tasty drink, I say drink as some of these triples are more like drink rather than beer. Very fine choice!
