4.28/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A very nice hazy orange with a fluffy white head.

Smell: Aggressive aromas of spices, malts, summery fruits, but most of all yeast.

Taste: Similar to the smell up front – lots of yeast, lots of malt. Some pineapple, pear and assorted fruitiness, as well as some spice-like notes. Big and bready flavours, yeasty throughout. A bit of sourness, especially in the finish. There is some pepperiness at the back of the throat. The alchohol makes its presence known more than I am used to in a Tripel, but it is still quite mild – hiding behind the sweetness up front and sneaking out in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light yet rich; just a bit of pep in the carbonation.

Overall: Very good. This is missing a little bit of the subtlety and complexity of some of the better Belgian Tripels, but La Fin Du Monde is still an exemplary representative of the style.

From 750ml served in a tulip.

A-Pours a hazy orange color with a large white foamy head that slowly fades to a large island in the glass.

S-At first I get sour apples and earthy spices but as it warms picking up more spice and light sweet fruits with a touch of alcohol in the nose.

T-Taste is bitter to begin with, maybe sour apples again(from yeast?)Evolves to a fruity bittersweet bubblegum flavor. Can just barely pick up any malts.

M-Medium bodied with a nice dry feel and great carbonation.

D-9% is hidden very well,this is a very easy drinking beer with a great taste.If this is the end of the world I'm almost ready now.

The bottle from a Trial Pack, purchased from Trader Joe's
Poured into Duvel Tulip

Thick 2" white, dense, and fine foam. Hazy, golden.

Smell: fruity with apple, grape, some banana.

Taste: apple and some toffee upfront. smooth malty sweetness in the middle. some hop bitterness follows after that. it finishes with warming and sweet alcohol. I notice some tartness, which I did not detect in the past review.

Mouth: smooth and light malt. not cloying. finishes dry, but alcohol seem to linger. it tasted like Duvel.

Drinkability: Not so good. Because of high alcohol, it seem to have some lingering sweetness from it. Though this is relatively "dry", it's not that quaffable. It's a sipper for me.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Pale yellow color with a dense gold in the center. A head that is evidence of the amount of effervescent characters in the brew with is frothy carbonation.

Smell: Combinations of citrus, banana, vanilla and clove/cinnamon like flavors that are mild but noticeable.

Taste: Like a lot of Unibroue brews, it is greatly carbonated and that leads to a nice combination with the dryness of the malts and the excessive unique flavors of banana, vanilla, clove/cinnamon and citrus notes.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp and clean with the effervescent characteristics. The flavors are in no way excessive to become overpowering throughout the mouth.

Drinkability: This brew is dangerously drinkable. The alcohol is insanely masked by the great combinations of spicy and fruity flavors.

Poured easy from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: 4.5) Even with an easy pour a good two finger head, off white, thin and foamy, quickly dissipated. Had to pour in several steps to allow the head to recede. Color is liquid gold opaque enough that I could not see through it, but when held to the light gave a pleasant glow. Bubbles race up the sides from first pour to middle of the glass.
S: 4.0) Smell like a good Wit. Bananas and bread with a bit of spice on the follow through. There' s more fruit in there but at the moment I can't quite pick it out ( damn sinus infection) apples perhaps or pears.
M: 3.75) Fair to middlin', an abundance of carbonation makes this beer feel light and airy. But after letting it sit on the tongue for a moment it thickens a bit.
T: 4.75) As the nose suggest bread, bananas and spice dominate. With sweet and tart green apples on the finish. After swallowing bananas and bread remain in the aftertaste for some time. The 9% ABV is undetectable to my tastes.
O: 4.5) Truly excellent. A bit more carbonation than what I prefer, but that is my only gripe. Yet another excellent brew from Unibroue that is suitable for all weather and/or occasions.

Had this at hazelwood in Ballard, poured into a nice tulip glass.

A- a great clear gold with a decent head and lacing, it looked like a great beer and I was excited to try.

S- smelled wild, almost like a sour beer, which was really cool. not quite overpowering but you could smell the spices and malt very well.

T- tasted lighter than it smelled at first but as it warmed up the taste came out more and more, sweet, spicy and some warming alcohol. Great beer. yum.

M- light and refreshing.

D- It was good to enjoy one or two but more than that its sweetness and alcohol might get to you. Overall a great beer and a great Triple.
