Tons of bubbles and the sounds of this Ale are striking. The label reads best by 2015! Everything indicates tremendous freshness. The color gives off a golden glow, very nice, very pretty.

The scent is fragrant and strong, clove, banana, yeast and a hint of fruity citrus.

The taste is simple...yes, simple. The banana is present, yeasty in the middle, followed by the clove but I don't get a whole lot more. The label reads "robust flavour" but I can't find it. This seems to be a basic "Triple, Golden Ale." Maybe I just don't get it or the style but this isn't something I'd try again.

A - pours a cloudy yellow gold, capped by a fast fading white creamy head. It will retain with the odd swirl.

S - huge wafting yeasty aroma, sweet bread, peach, banana, spice, very complex.

T - follows the nose, sweet bread, wild yeast, cinnamon, banana, stone fruit.

M - really high carbonation, zingy spicy mouthful.

O - wow. Tough to pick between this and karmaliet, either way this is one of my favourite beers.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a small head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is spicy bananas, cloves, coriander and pepper. Taste is a sweet-and sour medley of bananas, funky spices and coriander. Mouthfeel is alive, bubbly like champagne. Alcohol is well hidden but you still get a slight taste - nothing overbearing. Overall a great tripel and another home run from Unibroue.

P: Corked 750ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: A hazy golden yellow with orange highlights and a large clean head of white foam. Lacing is great and sticks throughout the glass.

S: Very Belgian, grassy with a some spice and alcohol. I think I'm picking up some banana and pear. It's a nice mix for the style, nothing overpowers.

T: Lots of sweet fruit up front with a clean peppery bitter finish. Some floral notes from the hops, in the realm of Saison Dupont but not as pronounced. A touch of alcohol at the end but not much.

M: Champagne like in terms of carbonation. On the lighter side in body, and a little dry.

O: This is a great beer, no doubt about that. It hits all of the right notes in terms of aroma and taste for a Tripel. It's especially impressive for the price. I'm not sure why it took me so long to have a La Fin Du Monde but I'll be seeking this one out more often now.

12oz bottle poured into tulip

Pours a completely hazed soft straw yellow color with some golden hues. Frothy white head bubbles up toward the rim, retaining nicely while streaking some lacing around the glass.

Spicy and fragrant in the nose with a snap of citrus and floral hops. Hints of banana and cracked pepper with clove. Toasted biscuit and light fruit with soft sweetness and a light alcohol warmth.

Crisp hops with a touch of citrus and peppery spice. Fruity notes with banana and pear. Decent sweetness, but fairly well balanced with the backbone. Biscuit and bread malts with a light toast. Finishes warm with some alcohol and spice.

Fuller medium body, slightly higher carbonation, bubbly and crisp on the tongue. It's been years since I've had this, but Unibroue really makes a nice tripel. The ABV is right on point, but not overbearing, and I enjoyed the balance of spice and hops.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Purchased in Wakefield, Rhode Island.

A- Pours a very hazy, dull yellow body with a tiny white head and minimal lacing.

S- Citrus, tropical fruits, wheat, unripe bananas. The aromas is strong and upfront, which really gives a good impression of the taste to come.

T- Woah! Wheat, bananas, cloves, candi sugar, tropical fruits, slightly peppery.

M- high carbonation, medium heaviness.

An excellent tripel which has some pretty good availability. I really enjoyed it and plan on purchasing more soon.

If confronted with "la fin du monde", or "the end of the world", this would be the my first choice of brews to sip on. It's tasty and refreshing.

Ready-Set-Enjoy a super fun drinking beer! The pour is sophisticated and just the correct beautiful foam lingering head. The spices are correctly proportioned, somebody said grapefruit, maybe, but absolutely a nice citrus, then comes banana and a hint of coriander. Nothing overdone, well balanced, smell so intriguing, almost a sexy come on. Unibroue always seems to hit it out and this tripel certainly maintains their tradition of excellence. As with all high ABVs, think about it before driving after a couple of these, but that said, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

A slow pour into my snifter rewards me with a finger of effervescent head. This is gone in a little under a minute, leaving just some bubbles and a thin ring. Lacing tries to cling to the glass, but like a 70 year old man without a blue pill, it just doesn't stay up.

First whiff is lightly sour apple. A hint of clove, some grapes, yeast and banana follow. Digging deeper reveals coriander with the cloves.

Yeast and a hint of wheat are very apparent at the start. Hints of grape follows and transitions into banana. Light hay, clove and coriander finish her off. It takes many sips to find all flavors, this is a very complex brew.

Very strong carbonation up front. The body is light-medium. Ending is lightly bitter.
