4.47/5  rDev +3.5%

Even a very slow pour will reveal a huge, foamy white head sitting atop this cloudy/golden brew. The maltiness & alcohol are big up front. Earthy notes and a hint of spice give la fin du monde a complex and dry finish. A definite classic out of Quebec.

Unibroue La Fin Du Monde
12 oz bottle
Slow pour in a tulip glass
Best before 04/08, ended 12/06

Poured a murky amber with a huge white mostly to fully lasting frothy pillow head.

Smelt of moderate bananas, sweet dough, white pepper.

Taste was upfront strong bittersweet raw sweet bread dough with peaches and oranges followed by a pungent sweaty raw dough on an average length finish. Palate was creamy, softly carbonated, medium bodied and light astringency.

Overall, it is unfathomable that this beer is 9% alcohol. The balance is exquisite. Only wish there was more complexity.

3.9/5  rDev -9.7%

Pours a cloudy golden/yellow color with a fluffy white head that fades to nothing - perhaps a slight whispiness, but no crown at all. Nose has a slight spiciness to it - reminds me of apple cider. Bit of citrus. Taste has slight spincess as well with nice fruity/floral layers. Moderate aftertaste that lingers for a bit. Mouthfeel is fairly medium with fairly mild carbonation, in my opinion. This brew kind of reminds me of chardonnay. Quite drinkable.

such a beautiful beer...

Golden slightly opaque yellow in a tulip from a 750ml...tons of white head and champagne bubbles going off.

Nose isn't as good as some other world class tripels, but still really nice with some sweet yeast and citrus

Taste is awesome, honey, spice and ripe bright fruit.

Great beer

4.63/5  rDev +7.2%

Taking a break from cleaning, watching the NBA Finals, and opening up a great beer.

Poured into Unibroue snifter...

Appearance-Golden yellow/orange. 3 finger soapy white head. Very tight bubbles and great retention. Lacing is all over the glass. Only beer off the top of my head thats better looking is Duvel.

Smell-Lots of Sweetness and lots of spice. Lots of malt. Pick out some plum and banana as well.

Taste-Huge flavors. Sweet sweet malts and honey. Banana, Clover, Black pepper on the backend to cut down the sweetness. Booze is not hidden. Slighly dry finish. Great beer for a Pinot Grigio drinker, shit, any white wine drinker...or beer drinker.

Mouthfeel-Clean, Crisp, Refreshing. Lots of body with medium to high carbonation.

Overall-Just a world class beer. Perfect anytime of the year, when you just want something good. Very clean beer all the way around. Unibroue continues to be one of my favorite brewerys.

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.

Poured into snifter this beer a bit hazy, golden straw color with a moderate white head that quickly diminished into a thin skim. The aroma is a wonderfully inviting complex mix of spicy phenols, banana, bubble gum, and sweetness. The flavor is much like the nose, delivered with a firm prick of carbonation. A mix of spicy, peppery phenols and fruity esters, the beer finishes dry and flavor lingers nicely. The body is medium and carbonation appropriately high. Overall fantastic, enough said.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a pale yellow with a BIG head and alot of carbonation. Smell is sweet and spicy. Taste includes a mixture of spices and some fruit. This beer had way too much carbonation for me to thoroughly enjoy. Made me burp after every sip. Still, a good tripel.
