This is a great one !
Poured out a hazy , slightly orange gold...a very active head ( it was bubbling out of the neck ).Head settles down to a collar in a Duvel chalice.
Smells very fruity with some clove and yeast...really nice.
Taste is fantastic...especially as it warms up...very complex..must be every tangy fruit flavor I've ever had blended into this..balanced very well with clove, alcohol, sugar and hops.
Mouthfeel is light-medium with a pretty smooth, velvety, micro carbonation. Great.
Very drinkable...another amazing Unibroue...boy , can they make beer!

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

Appearance: A thoroughly hazy golden-orange body capped by a mountain of fluffy white head that recedes slowly and leaves great lacing. Certainly a Belgian looking beer.

Aroma: Cloves, floral perfume, juicy citrus, golden fruit, grainy malt, Belgian yeast, and medium alcohol.

Flavor: A mix of golden fruit, pepper, mild hops, and medium alcohol character over sweet wheat-like pale malt. Everything is nicely balanced. Golden fruit, grainy malt, and mild booze in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied and creamy with medium-high carbonation and a dry finish. Some nice heat from the alcohol.

Drinkability: Surprisingly drinkable, this goes back quicker than the ABV would lead you to believe.

Verdict: A thoroughly satisfying experience, La Fin du Monde is complex, delicate, and well balanced. Who knew the Canadians were crafting such great Belgian beers this whole time?

750ml bottle. Pours a orange/yellow golden clear colour. Incredibly easy to drink. This is 9%? Seriously? No hint of the alc.% at all. Very solid beer all around. Definately a fruity taste to the after taste. Very nice beer from Canada.

Pours a pale-straw color with tons of medium sized bubbles that float up to the huge, pure white, frothy head. Appearance is wonderful and does have nice rings of wispy lace and good head retention. Fruity, cider-like aroma with pepper and yeast. Medium bodied and very smooth on the palate. Starts with a sweet maltiness that makes way for clove and peppery flavors. Very complex, finishes slightly dry with some hop flavor. The alcohol is hidden very well, almost too well as after a few bottles of this tasty treat you won't be able to stand.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a thick creamy smooth off white head.
lots of champange like carbonation. Not much lace.

Aroma is fruity, yeasty, bready, orangy.

Flavor is citrusy, spicy,fruity, with a little bit of hops on the end. warming alcohol.

Champange like mouthfeel, bubbly but with a creamy quality to the finish.

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

A- Pours an orange color with a huge head and some very good retention leaving a nice white skim after about 3 minutes. LIttle to no lacing.

S- Picking up banana, pear, apple, coriander, and perhaps even clove.

T- Lemon, alcohol, apple, clove, yeast, very complex. Spicy! Nice.

M- Definately has some carbonation but nice. The alcohol leaves the throat warm and reminds you that it's 9%.

D - This is how a tripel should be made. I haven't had many but this is by far the best. It is in the top 100 for good reason. The alcohol is a bit high to get this a 5 but I can forgive the high alcohol here because it tastes VERY good!

A: Golden in color, and quite hazy, LFDM holds its head well, and displays marvelous lacing.

S: Clove, rose, and banana are well presented.

T: Off-dry, with notes of honey, clove, and golden delicious apple.

M: Light in body and oh-so effervescent.

D: A standby throughout the US for those who love Belgian brews, but hate the import price. Unibroue does an outstanding job of recreating the Belgian style, while keeping things affordable. Definitely worth a shot.

750ml brown bottle, a best before date on the back label(10-01-11).
2-25-09 update - Had a 12oz and it has a much spicier scent and flavor, clearer golden-yellow, but just as good!

A: Foamy off white head. Cloudy, golden-yellow straw color.

S: Heavy sugar citrus scent. Slight clove and spice scents.

T&M: clove spiciness with some sweetness. Medium-heavy bodied with fruity flavors. Slightly dry finish.

Notes: Definitely my favorite of the "Unibroue" ales.
