2012 bottle poured into a chalice.

Cloudy golden pour, 3 inch cream head, good lacing.Reminds me very much of other Unibroue brews in smell (and taste) smell of almond, pear, raisin. Taste much the same, light creamy, flavorful, amazing mouthfeel. Probably the most 'easy' of all the unibroue's in terms of drinkability and find-ability. Highly recommended.

I'm always cautious to rate beer too high because I don't always trust myself. With the number of different types of beer and personal taste preference it'll take way more practice to truly identify the best of each bunch. Besides, what lies between "outstanding" and "perfect"? Regardless, this beer was incredibly good. I'm realitively new to the Tripel and got LFDM because of the high ratings on BA. That said, the flavours of this beer were very distinct, well balanced and downright tasty. There were so many different taste regions affected on my palate that I had a very tough time identifying the medley of flavours. The malts were not in anyway overpowering as one might think of a Tripel and a 22oz. bomber at 9% disappeared rather quickly. I'd venture to say that this is one beer deserves a place on every beer rack and should be brought our to impress the advocates in your circle.

Pours a hazy golden in color with a thick white head. Smells of Belgian sugars and yeast. Also a citrus type odor. Very smooth, balanced and refreshing. A slight, flavorful tartness, that takes away the potential for a sweet and strong alcohol taste. A highly balanced and drinkable beer. A fine Belgian outside of Belgium.

A: Pours with a two finger, medium-large bubble head that quickly pops down to a thin layer of small bubbles. It is a deep cloudy yellow/orange color.

S: Wonderful smell. Since the head is full of popping larger bubbles it gives off a wonderful smell, especially at the beginning.

T: A wonderful taste reminiscent of an exceptional home brew (probably in part due to the yeast base refermentation. The beer is sweet with a citrus-like aftertaste. Tastes similar to the best hefeweizen you might have tried.

M: It is actually fun to drink. At each sip, the aforementioned bubbles 'explode' in your mouth releasing the full flavor in the mouth.

D: Due to a high ABV of 9% and the rich and brilliant flavors, this is a beer to enjoy while smoking a pipe, but not one to take to a college party.

Unibroue La Fin Du Monde pours a dense opaque peach with a short fuzzy head. The smell is medium to strong of yeast. I don't typically like yeasty beer, but this has a fabulously smooth and slightly sweet yeast like flavor. Mouthfeel is really good, sporting a silky smooth feel that changes into a very unique foam like character with a swish. Overall this was quite enjoyable the whole way through. A good standard for what a yeasty flavored beer should be.

Color is hazy golden. Nice head that dissipates but leaves lingering lacing. The smell is great, although I'.m not sure how to describe it. Malt, citrus, tamarind. It's complex and deep. The taste is fantastic. Malt and yeast, a perfect amount of hoppy bitterness. The taste is complex and rich and remarkably balanced. The mouth feel is excellent. It's heavy and almost velvety without being cloying or thick. The alcohol asserts itself, but the beer is rich enough that it blends in. Overall, a fantastic beer. Complex, tasty, drinkable.

(Bottle poured into Trappist glass) Poured a beautiful golden color with small creamy head that faded fast. Aroma provided a good deal of sweet notes, most notable a strong fruit and flowery hint. Full bodied, the drink was very smooth with a very average carbonation -- there was just enough here! Overall the flavor did not disappoint in the sweet department, but it was not overly sweet. A great compliment to the hearty stew I had it with! This is one to go back to over and over again!
