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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
