Thanks to ngeunit1 for this.
Pours a hazy yellow/orange color with about an inch of head that dissipates quickly, like a cola. Carbonation is easily visible.
yeasty and dry, but fruity. Very soft and mild smell with some amount of light fruits, like white grapes and a lot of pear. very smooth and champagne-y.
Again, soft. A lot of pear flavor and a bit of grape in the background. A bitterness similar to fruit peel.
Sharp carbonation and with a creamy feeling behind it.
I don't think I'd have more than one of these in a night, partially because of the ABV and partially because I'm not really into this. It's a decent belgian, but it just doesn't quite click with me. That being said, I can recognize it as a quality beer.

A – A very light, golden-yellow with a perfectly white head that is expansive and last forever (even if it’s just a tiny layer towards the end). Great carbonation, although very little lacing. Still, beautiful.
S – The smell may even be the best part. Just so complex with layers of sweet apple, dark fruit, clove, varying yeast, a little bit of cinnamon and a hint of white grapes. There is also a very faint smell of alcohol. But it is truly just delightful.
T – Spice hits your first, and it’s somewhat surprising because you cannot really detect it in the nose. Clove, nutmeg, fruity elements and some yeast. It is sweet and yet spicy and a slight bitterness to it that makes none of the flavors become boring but balances all of them.
M – Great body on this beer, it is decidedly medium and yet the carbonation plays with it so that it would not be a stretch to call it light. The alcohol is really not noticeable throughout this Tripel which is very impressive.
O – Overall this is just one of my favorite beers out there. Great Belgian yeast going on it here, so spicy, mildly fruity, sweet and slightly bitter, and utterly drinkable. I love this beer. Probably in my top ten.

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.

A light white foam head of about an inch & a half rests atop a mostly clear, bright pale gold. Very bright looking, as if it has its own light. Theres a slight yeasty haze, but nothing too thick. Bubbles fade and not much lacing occurs.
The smell is of sweet malts and sugars typical to the tripel/Belgian Pale styles and also possesses the twangy Euro funk of the same.
Theres a tart sweetness off the bat. I know BA calls it a Belgian Strong Pale, but damn if this doesnt taste like a Tripel to me. Oh well, styles shmyles, this is damn good! There is a pilsner-esque hop oil bitterness right at the end that separates it from the tripel style I think though. This beer is HIGHLY carbonated, super bubbly and tingling on the tongue. Much like Miller High Life, Id say this is a challenger for The Champagne of Beer. ;-D
The alcohol really didnt make a flavor appearance, and to be honest it didnt warm me up as much as Id figure 9% to do, so maybe its lower?
Its drinkable depending on how you handle the bubbles. I drank the3 of the 4 pack over the course of 5 or 6 nights. (The most recent on NYE .Champagne of Beers I tells ya!) And one was good enough per time. And even though the alcohol wasnt as present as Id figured, Id still be careful, because maybe after 2 it could creep up quickly. Great beer.

A delicious Pale Ale! Our Canadian friends have made another successful Belgian-taste-alike with this one.
The 11.2 oz beer pour richly into the chalice -- a blonde straw color. A tiny bubbled white head form and last for quite a while. A relaxing citrus aroma accompanies the head.
The taste is right on -- not to spicy or sweet or fruity. Right down the middle, Tripel, but it's not. A very rick brew for a Pale Ale. This one is a keeper.
I will keep several of these on hand for guests.
