1.4/5  rDev -67.6%

Poured into a snifter, heightening the perfume-like spice aromas, which I am not a fan of. It pours a nice cap of head with a beautiful golden glow and such wonderful texture. Unfortunately, this was the only part i found appealing about this beer. The taste is way over spiced and borders on the artificial for me. It is this observers opinion that this beer, along with the rest of the Unibroue line, are cheap imitations of noble beer styles, all with an artificial tasting backbone. I really don't understand all the acclaim this beer continues to receive, but there must be something wrong with me, as just about everyone from the uninitiated to the most seasoned beer enthusiasts seem to give it such high praise. Incredibly disappointing, each and every time i've revisited it.

This beer reminds me in so many ways of a hefeweizen, from the unfiltered appearance to the smells to the taste. It doesn't have all the taste, but the initial body of the beer definitely reminds me of a wheaty/yeasty unfiltered.

There's a lot of subtleness to this brew though. Part of me wants to say there's a very subtle sourness around it (not a bad kind though), probably from the yeast. A bit of spicyness...a light fruity sweetness.

European beers always ring differently to my tastebuds. They always seem to have excellent balance and can easily flit between a subtle but bold body (how this one feels to me) and a complex but balanced beer (like say, Matilda, a Belgian strong).

This isn't a bad beer at all, but I don't really see it being the most addictive beer I'll ever have per se. You do get your money's worth though, and if you like tripels, I can see you liking this beer. If nothing else, La Fin Du Monde has me curious about the tripels now...

This one I slowly came around to. My tastes had to grow and change for Fin Du Monde to completely bowl me over. I was a diehard stout/scotch/porter fan for years until a handful of notable Belgians (Trappist Rochefort, Delirium, etc) made me a true believer. I came back to this exquisite beer with an open mind, a wisened palate, and a sudden realization that it's one of the best examples of its kind, despite being from Montreal, Canada. Ah, Montreal. An incredible city, but it's still not in Belgium. Anyway, here's the math half:

Appearance: gorgeous. I always smile at those lightly hued brews which obscure vision as well as any pitch-black stout. Yellow orange haze which nothing penetrates.

Smell is delicate fruity subtle and direct. It's good

Tastes even better than the nose and looks implied, with a perfect tingle via carbonation and a sweet fruity body (for the most part) masking the alcohol entirely.

Mouthfeel is near-perfect as well with semi-sharp carbonation offsetting the lack of bite from the taste - this thing tickles the physical mouth at proper aggression level while soothing taste buds in a stealthily satisfiying way.

This one took me by surprise. Poured out of a bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: beautifully hazy orange-yellow. Reminiscent of any great light belgian.

Smell: fruity, fantastic. Nothing more to say here...

Taste: What the heck?! This beer is nearly flawless. I can definitely taste the 9%, which is the only drawback I see for it. It's creamy, light, and dangerous.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated a little more than I would have liked. Still fantastic.

Just try this beer. Another hit from Unibroue, they are shaping up to be one of my favorite breweries.
