A: Hazy, aged pine wood yellow. Poured a full 3 fingers of soapy giant bubbles collasping down to a lacy rim of bubbles lasting even an hour post pour.

S: As always with Unibroue, the unique yeast is definitely the first scent. Afterward, you may smell pale dried fruits like dried apricots and peaches as well as spices of cloves and fennel. The smell is complex and layered fantastic to just smell nevermind to drink...and on to that...

T: Bready yeast typical of Unibroue is abundant, a butter pastry like flavour. A combination of malt and sweet fill the mouth followed by a complex spiced mix of cloves and fennel. A balanced combination of sweet, malty and spicy.

M: A medium body, smooth aftertaste on the tongue. The bubbles burst to the surface and tingle on the tongue, this is as close to a champagne as a brew can get.

D: La Fin du Monde is a crisp and dry offering from Unibroue that is reminiscent of a dry bubbly champagne and is easy to drink. I think of this as a champagne like beer, drink in moderation for optimal enjoyment. Try with spicy thai red curry soup. The malty sweet and sharpness of the carbonation balanced off the sweet and salty. Also paired with a more classic french dish of creamy potatoes, pan fred trout and asparagus. The full flavour and dry aftertaste compliment the fish and butter in the dish - great offering.

A top notch beer! poured a nice head and the peach type aroma was strong and desirable. I would say this is a top 100 beer in the world..no doubt. The bottle was given to me and I really enjoyed it.

Alcohol is hidden very well and this went down smooth. Good carbonation with little aftertaste.

Bottom line: If you can get it....dont pass it up! it's worth the $8-$10 bucks.

Pours a golden color with a nice white head. There's definitely a high sweetness level here that is cut nicely with some doughiness, in both flavor an taste: yeast, banana, pear, apricot, spice. The doughiness cuts into that sweetness nicely and allows me to really enjoy what would otherwise be a overl sweet beer for me, personally. A nice medium bodied, maybe even a little heavy creamy moutfeel. I had tried one Unibroue offering prior to this and really disliked it and almost wrote the entire brewery off. So glad that I didn't as this is a mighty fine brew that I would have hated myself for if I never gave it a try.
