A nice dark gold color. Pours with a stiff tight white head. Clings all the way to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is slighlty sweet and spicey. Nice carbonation, a great warm flavor of spices mixed in with alcohol. An enjoyable brew ! Cant wait to try the others

Appearance all plosive, puffy and proud with a pinpoint prickly persona. Damn good brew! Pours yellow yet hazy and a touch golden. Champagne like carbonation with bubbles actively heading towards the beer's surface. Good headage that keeps puffing with swirling. Aromatics include tropical fruit, creme caramel and pecan pie. A wonderfully complex brew that hints of exotic fruits, anise, and ripe melon. In the mouth a nice interplay between sweet and bitter. Very warming indeed, with a touch of anteseptic!! One may be all I need, but this drinkability here is high as this beer simply rocks. It is sooo damn good! Practicably pornographic!!

Pouring into a chalice resulted in a hazzy yellow/gold character, with a finger of white, short lived head.

Slightly bready aroma with a hint of spices. A trace of alcohol is also detectable from the smell.

Very bold flavor. Some yeasty flavors, some flowery flavors, a minor sweetness and a hint of spice, backed up by a hint of alcohol. Alcohol has a nice warming characteristic when swallowed. A little bit extra carbonation seems to be present for me.

Thoroughly enjoyable, though probably more in moderation than in a session. Half way through a single 341ml bottle I had already begun to feel an alcohol buzz. Something for those miserable fall/winter days perhaps?

Although I have been a lover of fine brew for some time this is the first beer that has compelled me to share my feelings about it to the world. I in fact opened an account to share my feelings about this brew.

Smell and taste warm banana bread, flowers, citrus and cloves. The alcohol at 9% is imperceptible - i could and have drank this all night

High carbonation - nice lasting head - with patchy lacing.

As a canadian I feel a little more patriotic knowing this masterpiece was brewed here.

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

Giant rocky head of densely packed bone colored bubbles spilling over the top of the glass. Loads of carbonation streams and tons of lacing. Beautiful, cloudy golden caramel colored body. Smells of clove with alcohol, slight floral esters. Vibrant carbonation on tongue, hints of peppery spice in the finish. Full mouthfeel, big and packed with overt alcohol tones.

This is a beer to be enjoyed slowly, savored.

Man i just discovered this not to long ago (hey im new to this) and...wow. It pours a cloudy yellow with not much head and little peices of sediment floating about, and what head it has quickly diminishes to nothing. looking at it as it sits in my glass it reminds me of a hefe minus the big white biscuit head. the aroma is of light spices and clove and is quite pleasant. the taste makes me think wheat with a bit of citrus and clove. Man I love the wheat taste. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing with good carbonation that just seems to bubble on your toungue, just a little bit of creaminess that kind of coats your mouth finishes it off. The drinkability of this is amazing and a 4 pack or 2 750ml bottles can be finished off no problem. the only thing is, this brew is 9% and it creeps up on you pretty quickly. After work (construction) in the hot Las Vegas sun I love to come home, pour a glass of this and sit on the porch. It is a most refreshing, relaxing, not to heavy brew. A truly wonderful beer.

$5.99 for 750ml or $7.99 per 4 pack.

Maybe the best beer I've had so far since discovering craft beers. Smells like banana, cloves, and some apricot, but this is definetly the most complex beer I've tasted. I first tasted pineapple.. apricots.. bubblegum.. sour apples.. then the medium hop-y bitterness hit me. I didn't taste any alcohol until I was almost finished with the bottle. Drinkability is high - I seriously could go for another one, but I'll be passed out on the floor mid-way through. The alcohol is very well-hidden.

Less head than I had expected, but quite thick one finger float. Lace is light but clingy. Color is a slightly hazy 5 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell is intoxicating, with sweet aromas of apple, melon, grapefruit, cranberries, and malt. Taste is fruity/flowery, with flavors of apples, grapes, figs, melon, grapefruit, and warm spices. Mouthfeel is a little bit sticky, but creamy with ample amounts of carbonation. Just a bit of drying on the sides of my tongue and soft palate. The warming effect from the ample amount of alcohol sort of hits you like ever increasing waves of the ocean. One of these will give you a great buzz. A little sweet to drink them one after another, but a great beer to sip while enjoying conversation or a good movie.

4.68/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

appearance; fog-like cloudy yellow. No sediment, depending on one's pour, white head with fine bubbles, dissipates quickly, to a thick collar around the inside of the glass and a thin film remains on the surface. Minimal lacing

smell; delicious mild citrus fruit sweetness with some tart lemony notes that balances perfectly with warm yeast sweetness, alcohol, and faint hop spice.

taste; fresh apricot ice cream comes to mind. Citrusy hop bitterness holds back a lot of sweetness. Some very slight tart favors and bitter sours in the backround but blend into a yeasty finish.

mouthfeel; very fine carbonation and cream, somehow I get visions of a sauce that is not quite at "Nappé" consistancy. Loose and slick on the way down. A bit sticky on the palate and numbing to the tip of the tongue and back of lips.

drinkability; really complex but light and smooth. The alcohol is unbelievably well hidden, this is a great session drink if one likes getting drunken. Still, have some respect.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle at Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe in Lake Buena Vista (aka Orlando), FL with a best before date of 08-06-2006. I think I safely made it before this one went bad, but it was close. JK. Oh and they had the proper glassware for both La Fin Du Monde & Blanche De Chambly.

Poured a hazy, opaque pale yellow-orange with a big, foamy white head. Each sample left streams of lacing all around the glass, but they had some trouble with gravity.

Very fragrant. Roasted malt, yeast, citrus, esters, fruit, and caramel candy all over the nose. There were more scents I couldn't pick out. Very complex, yet very alluring and enticing. The scents could draw you to the end of the world, which is what the name means. (Even says so on the back label.)

The taste is just as complex and enticing as the nose. The pleasure begins with sweet roasted malt and citrus flavors that glide into yeast, dough, and orange savory elements that then dance on your tongue into esters and ever so slight hops for the finish. Medium to medium-full body and a clean finish and transition. A truly wonderful beer and a first rate, top notice contender.

One of the better beers I've had to date. Definitely in the top 20.

12 oz bottle, best before 1-8-10

Pours an apricot yellow with lots of head that retains well, laces okay.

smells of peppery hops mostly, and some fruity esters.

Taste is sweet malt, bready yeast, peppery hops, all pretty well balanced.

There is alot of carbonation in this one which leaves the palate fairly dry.

Drinkability is good for a 9% abv, although after one i had heartburn so that was my limit.
