Congrats to our northern neighbors for creating this amazing brew that I now have on my favorites list.

It's a dark golden color with a boat load of white foamy head that doesn't die easily. It's rather cloudy, and this one had a few chunks of dark sediment that my first one didn't. The aroma is mostly fruit with a bit of wheat. The flavor just blew me away. A bit of wheat, then lemon, orange, cloves, spices. A rather complex mix that are strong and plentiful. It knocks your taste buds out and makes you ask for seconds. It finishes just a tad tart but still sweet.

This beer poured as nice straw color, with ample bubbles, complete with some spontaneous carbonation in the glass.

It smelled of horse blanket and flowers,with a hint of sugary sweetness. There is also a faint yeasty scent to this beer as well.
The taste was crisp and clean, slightly bitter in the front, finishing with a nice little bite that ended abruptly, very dry.
Nice bubbly beer, with gobs of carbontaion, medium in body.
This beer is polished! I could get my swerve on drinking this bad boy! Clearly my favorite Unibroue product.

Poured into Stella glass

A: Absolutely beautiful brew, perfect golden amber hue. Two finger head than kept for a long while and then disappated but not all the way.

S: Smell is wonderful, I get a bit of floral and perhaps corriander.

T & M: If a friend who only drinks macros had only one beer to drink to be introduced to the world of craft beers this is the one I would pick. There is so much to the mouthful it is hard to place all the different flavors that are there. It is a truly amazing beer.

D: Heavens yes it is drinkable, it is 9% ABV but there is no hint of the high alcohol as I'm enjoying this truly superlative beer.

This beer truly stands atop the summit of all brews and should be tried by all beer drinkers once.

A - Nice hazy golden orange.

S - Nice lemony smell.

T - Depending on my mood, it seems, I either love this beer or feel it's just pretty good. Usually, i love it. (As I do tonight.) Bold, well balanced, between flavors and abv.

M - Always easy to drink, going down nicely.

O - A high quality beer that never disappoints and that all craft beer lovers should try.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy yellow, solid lacing with 10% clarity. pours a healthy two finger head and reduces but sits for a while.
S: bread, ripe banana, coriander, unidentified sweetness
T: Coriander again on the profile with a processed sugar sweetness and musty belgium yeast that you would expect
M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel and carbonation
O: This is probably the best example of a true Belgium Tripel I have enjoyed. Nothing too bold or odd but if you are looking to try the pure profile this is your best bet.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pour is cloudy but pale yellow with a massive white, frothy head which sticks around for some time. Smell is mainly spicey with light fruits, wheat, and a somewhat floral / hoppy tinge all also there; distinctively belgian and inviting.

A tremendously appealing taste, a soft wheat tone mixes with fruity goodness; oranges, some other harder to ID citrus, a spicey bite (softer than Maudite but still good) and plenty of yeast as well. There is also a nice hop tone that starts it off and hangs around throughout which is enjoyable, it's there, but doesn't try to dominate the flavour like so many overly hopped beers are. There is also a noticeable alcohol tinge, not strong, but present. Overall taste is high quality all the way.

Mouthfeel, well, good, it feels full for the style (has some body) but it's not quite up there with the best, signficantly better than average though. Drinkability meanwhile is also up there, particularly for a higher alcohol content beer.

Unibroue is one of the most consistent north american breweries around, and La Fin is another perfect example of why they have such a reputation with craft beer fans.

Easily the most luscious and inviting head I've had the pleasure of seeing. It reminds me of the frothy top of a handmade milkshake; imparting the impression that it was homemade with lots of love. Body is straw colored gold with light carbonation. I would call the nose lemony, but with the disclaimer that it is in no way sour. Also along for the aroma ride is a smell I can only call pleasantly milky and a hefty amount of spice. Taste is at once full of mildly sweet lemon, spice, a dash of sweet milk, and smatter of bitterness. Says I to the mouthfeel, "a winner is you" as it is big and full. The light carbonation enhances its creaminess. The lacing looks like a work of art, or more aptly, something drawn from a nitro tap. Yet another head turning Unibroue beer. Thank you Beer Advocate, for had I not become a member, I would not know the pleasure of this fine brewery.

The BA Top 100 quest continues with a huge 750ml of 9% La Fin Du Monde. I think they meant the edge of the world instead of the end of the world. Or I'm just an idiot. Actually had to 'pop' the cork...

Spout looks pretty clear/light yellow but pours a perfect Hawiian sunset golden orange (trying to be more descriptive). Big lumpy head of mush.

Smell is all fruit. Oranges, bananas, exotic ones my puny brain can't fathom and underlying common scent of 'beer.'

Tart fruit taste. Quite similar to a mimosa actually. Some clove flavors. Light bananas. Can't have clove without banana.

Feels just a hair harsher than it needs to be, but I really think this orange juice beer is toast.

Overall: middle of the road for me, good but wouldn't seek it out.

A- Golden yellow, white head that dissipates down to a nice cap that stays throughout the drink

S- Sweet citrus with a maltiness underneath as well

T- Peppery spices and sweetness up front, the hops and yeast follow up at the end. Overall, the alcohol is covered up and only evident in the warming feeling really

M- Medium, made very smooth by the maltiness

D- Very drinkable so beware the ABV!
