4.2/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured into a tulip glass. Beer is a hazy golden yellow with lots of active carbonation. A decent head gives way to a white collar with some light lacing.

S - Smells like champagne. Lots of white fruit....grapes....apple...banana....some pear. Lots of spicy and herbal notes as well.

T - Taste is like it smells. As it warms....things mellow out and the carbonation is minimized by each swirl.

M - Initial buzzing carbonation gives way to a medium body....almost some creaminess like you get with a swirled Quad each time you do so. Nice and dry on the finish with lingering sweetness and tartness at the same time. Crisp.

D- ABV is very well hidden. This goes down tasty and easy. A fine example of a Tripel and one that is reasonably priced and available....last I saw was 8.99 for a 4-pack.

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

A: Pours a cloudy golden color with less than a finger of white head. Slight amount of lacing on the drinking side. Persistent foamy cap that's nearly as thick as the original head.

S: Yeast, citrus, bread. Yeast seems to have a spicy character to it. Maybe some banana here.

T: Mostly lemon citrus, mildly spicy yeast, biscuit, bready. Very tasty.

M: Has an almost creamy body with slight alcohol warming.

O: Granted, I don't have extensive experience with triples, but I like this a lot. All of the flavors are very well balanced and the alcohol is mild, providing only a warming effect. I'll drink this again for sure.

750 ml bottle served in a goblet, reviewed live:

A - Pours a murky straw/honey golden color with a thin, 1 finger head. Retention is pretty poor, but excusable for the high abv.

S - Strong pale and crystal malt foundation gives way to honey, banana, clove, and citrus esters. Very pleasant and inviting.

T - Lemon, clove, unidentified spice, honey and pale malt meddle nicely. It's complex and subtle. The alcohol comes through on the finish, but it fit's and isn't overbearing. Very well built. Reminds of wheat with Belgian yeast.

M - Light and carbonated well. This ain't your ordinary tripel.

D - I'm impressed by this one. It's subtly complex, and easy drinking to boot. For the price and quality it'd be hard to better.

"The End of the World"

This is a very intriguing beer possessing a lot of what I like about Belgians and little of what I do not. This beer pours a slightly cloudly golden/amber in color with a frothy off-white head that eventually recedes into a sticky lacing. The nose is citric in nature, a heavy scent of the trademark Unibroue yeast strainl very earthy. The taste is similar but with some delicate complexities added into the whole affair. Tangerines and sticky fruit, some mild herbal qualities and the strong yeast presence swirl into an interesting mix. Not brutal in any sense however which is what you might expect from a 9% beer. This one certainly walks a fine balance and does so extremely well. This is probably my favorite Belgian pale, extremely well done.

Before I start this review, a big THANKS to my sister and brother-in-law for this sampling.

750 ml bottle that is corked and caged

Appearance: Cloudy, golden in color, with a full white head that holds well

Smell: Light sweet citrus fruit and spice aroma

Taste/Mouthfeel: Taste same as smell, spicy sweet fruity and yeasty. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with good carbonation.

Drinkability: This is a MUST try for Belgian Strong Pale Ale lovers! It leaves you wanting another.

La Fin Du Monde goes well with fish and chips, although, I think it would go well with anything. This brew sure lives up to its reputation – Canadians have a winner here.

Pours a hazy gold with a one finger white head that disappears quickly, no lacing. The scent is very yeasty along with spices and lemon zest. The taste has a strong lemon zest and hoppy flavors. The mouthfeel has a effervescent feel to it. Lots of carbonation. No alcohol presence makes this very drinkable.

Tasted 1/16/04 at our little Extravaganza Belgique.

Ok, so our final tasting wasn't truly Belgian, but it's so good and I had one ready to drink, so we figured, why not?

Alluring orange-yellow with a pure white head and a brown drop of yeast shaken from bottle's bottom. Soft, bready aroma, almost like an orange scone. Flavor is full of the yeast, with bright citrus fruit and a beautifully crisp finish. Amazingly smooth in the mouth, with no evidence that this brew hides a potent 9% ABV. Crisp and easy drinking. Orange, lemon, spices, yeast, wheat--wonderful.

This became my new all-time favorite the first time I tasted it, and drinking it again makes me pretty happy all over again.

Spoils of the 10/11/03 Knoxville Raid.

Loud pop when corked. Never get tired of that sound.

Massive foamy crown with a hazy pale orange color. I've seen better lacing.

Biscuit, soap, pear, apple, yeasty spice, lemon zest, slight alcohol,

Nice flash of biscuity-malty-soapy flavors in the start that quickly evolves to fruitier flavors on the palate which includes green apple, pear, pineapple, lemon zest, and a touch of orange pulp. The finish is quite spicey (nutmeg and coriander come to mind) with earth yeast flavors. Complex!

High attenuation leaves a light bodied beer that is so refreshing. Prickly yet delicate carbonation.

This is a great beer that always finds it's way into my refridgerator. Pairs well with pesto and salmon.
