The beer pours to a opaque golden color. Nose is rather yeasty, I love it! The aroma has bits of fruit and a very slight spicyness. This is a very smooth drink, but rather alcoholic. It is rather good, but the only problem with it is that it is heavy and filling.

Bottle pour into a tulip glass. 9% abv

Picked up a 4 pack of Unibroue from Rays in Wauwatosa. La Fin Du Monde is an outstanding beer. Pours a pretty golden hazy yellow with rich white head. Easily drinkable with great tones of citrus, orange, yeast, fruits, and nice hints of alcohol. I'm looking forward to having this one again soon.

Appearance: La Fin Du Monde (End of the World) pours a cloudy blonde color with a creamy white head.

Smell: very floral with some spiciness in the nose.. coriander and alcohol are present as well.

Taste: a very complex arrangement of spice, Belgian style yeast, honey-like sweetness, clove, coriander, light and fleshy fruit, and a dose of gentle hops.. there's some alcohol in the finish to boot.

Mouthfeel: thicker than most tripels I've tried with a remarkably smooth yet dry finish.

Overall: a truly unique and complex brew.. La Fin Du Monde goes down as one of my favorite tripels of all time.

At first glance not the best looking beer in the world, but who drinks beer for the looks. I poured this into a snifter and it poured out a hazy gold/straw color with a thick frothy head that took it's time to settle to a thin lace. Right off the bat you get a wiff of yeast and some spiciness, I preferably don't appreciate the smell of yeast(don't know why, I just don't) so I immediately prejudged this brew, to be not good. I couldn't have been more wrong. The taste was awsome it had some yeast, spice and a hint of citrus no alcohol aftertaste at all to this, unlike some of its counterparts. Mouthfeel was smooth and rich. This is an easy to drink beer but if you have more than the four watch out cause the bark isn't as big as the bite(or something like that). I also learned not to prejudge a beer without tasting it, smell or looks may be decieving but until you taste it you never know.

Cheers!!!

Pours like a wit with a healthy white head and a cloudy golden body. The aroma hints at yeast and lemon zest. This is the most refreshing beer out there. Rorshack flavor test; orange, lemon zest, yellow cake, white pepper. I somewhat don't believe this beer is 9%. It just seems to disappear from the glass. This is my favorite widely available beer.

Hazy, light honey color
Active, rich bubbly head.
Very aromatic; fruits and raisins.
Full flavored, a lot going on. A very nice blend of malty fruitiness.
Settles on the front of the tongue, doesn't expand to the back or into the nose.
Very drinkable for the style, I was ready for a second glass.

pour to tulip glass yields a cloudy deep honey color with small head that breaks up fast.

smell is mild sweet orange peel, yeast, some spice & bitter notes.

taste is complex, citrus & herbal hops, mildly sweet malts, apples and other fruits, alcohol well hidden.

Lite body, good effervescent zip, medium alcohol warmth lingers, hop bite and dryness present, malts balanced very well.

Overall very, very well balanced. 9% abv shows up as a nice medium warmth throughout. Good one to sit and enjoy!
