Helluva purdy pour! Creamy, frothy...*dramatic* head. A persistent, beautiful, cloudy tan body. Very aesthetically pleasing. [ed note: at the finish of this beer, I find it to be very possibly the most aesthetically pleasing beer ever. Beer goggles?]

Smells of pineapple, yeast, alcohol, raspberry, wheat-beeriness, and...melon? Intriguing to my nose.

First thing I notice about the taste is, strangely enough, the fresh-bready aftertaste. Second swallow, notice the pungent fruitiness. More pineapple. Tough to put my finger on a lot of these tastes, but it's light, slightly fruity (less so than the smell), and pleasant. Raspberry seems to be here...I feel like I'm hunting in a beautiful forest for a tree that I recognize, but they're all, despite their niceness, unidentifiable.

I seem to be nearly done with the beer without noticing doing so (and I don't have a drinking problem, I promise!), so I guess it's damn drinkable. My *only* complaint is that I doubt I could have another and not be beset by the pain of (too-)rapid inebriation and overload of powerful flavor.

A - Hazy golden orange. Fluffly head that dissipates rather quickly to about a 1/8" of foam. Can see all kinds of stuff floating around the beer. It looks very similar to a standard hefeweizen.

S - Kind of smells like chalk and flowers. A little bit of citrus hint to it also. Slight alcohol scent also.

T - Sweet. Very sweet. It's a very balanced beer. Fruit mixed with wheat, with some light hops. Coming from a guy that doesn't like the bite of alcohol, I didn't taste it at all which is very surprising based the ABV level.

M - Medium carbonated and medium bodied. Starts off with a hard and crisp feel but smooths out rather quickly.

D - I feel that is has a very high drinkability which is bad because the alcohol will definitely sneak up on you and crush you. Could easily put this beer down in a few minutes, although I would recommend not too.

750mL bottle

Golden yellow appearance with a thick foamy head.

One of my favorite beers. Dangerously smooth (alcohol kind of sneaks up on you) and creamy. Has a rich yeasty and fruity aroma. The taste is balanced but complex.

A beer you can sip all night and not get bored. But seriously, be careful drinking this beer because it deceivingly strong.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Looks like an uncarbonated unfiltered orange juice, hazy and yellow. Poured a 3 inch head with not much retention. Reasonably carbonated.
Peanuts and charcoal scent. Fruity.
Tastes same as it smells.
Rich creamy finish.
Exceptional quality and highly enjoyable.

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.
