This may be my favorite tripel; perhaps because it doesn't taste like any tripel I've ever had before. I've been told that there is some wheat in the grain bill, which is uncharacteristic of the style.

Pours a hazy slightly golden color. Small head, nice lacing.

Smells faintly of belgian yeast mild fruit, not much belgian funk. Also some clove, maybe some orange peel and a touch of coriander?

The taste is the strongest part of this beer. The yeast unibroue uses is proprietary and it has all of the fruit and phenolics that you'd expect, but they're very subtle. I think I can taste a little bread and a touch of corinader. very little bitternes.

To me, this tastes like a hybrid between a tripel and wit. The alcohol is hidden and it's very easy to drink. One of my staples.

Pours slightly hazy bright yellow..two fingers of white head.

Smell offers clove, some pepper, pears and mildly sweet fruit scents, soft and chalky.

More banana and pear fruitiness in taste, spices, interesting sourness in aftertaste perhaps due to yeast

Clean finish, dry.

Must try Tripel

A: Hazy golden-yellow with a bubbly, fizzy, white head that fades into very little lace and retention.

S: I find Belgians difficult to dissect because they're so complex yet simple. I get candy sugar, malt and a bit of barn/straw/funk. Fantastic is one word.

T: Wow. I've never been a big fan of this style but this is special. Malty, sweet, sugary, floral, fruity. A joy to drink.

M: Very sweet but not cloying. Bright, fresh, malty. Big carbonation.

O: This beer has been executed perfectly. While I'm not a regular drinker of Tripels, this makes me appreciate the style and helps me understand the intentions of other breweries when they attempt to brew one.

A - Nice hazy golden orange.

S - Nice lemony smell.

T - Depending on my mood, it seems, I either love this beer or feel it's just pretty good. Usually, i love it. (As I do tonight.) Bold, well balanced, between flavors and abv.

M - Always easy to drink, going down nicely.

O - A high quality beer that never disappoints and that all craft beer lovers should try.

A- A cloudy golden composite. That is distinctive of a tripel. There is an ambivalence of character swirling throughout that is all brought together by a big clean head, making this one of the most sophisticated looking beers I have seen. The beer finishes with a nice deal of lacing as well.

S-Huge spicy nose that is highlighted by a lot of clove and a bit of sweeter scents (honey banana and cinnamon maybe a hint of nutmeg as well)

M-Nice mix between cream and carbonation to give the beer that much more character.

T-An absolutely fascinating blend of flavors. To me this is the perfect tripel, as it differentiates itself from the rest of the field. The abundance of flavors are impressive, but its the balance between all of them that amazes me most. Instead of being labeled as a tripel, it is simply La Fin Du Monde, a true work of art.

O-One of the best beers in the world, without question.

Long time drinker, first time reviewer.


The dryness and spicy, funky edge are what really detract from me saying: "this is the perfect tripel."
It's what's not there. The fruit I expect from a tripel is quiet. It's there in some ways, but I just love the big passionfruit and honey flavors some tripels have. Now, this has some beautiful sweetness; banana, heavy in body, and inexact, but nice . . . just not that golden raisin, nectar-like, champagne sweetness I want. Spicy, clove, coriander, funk are in control.

Okay, it's a great brew. I just like other heavy hitting tripels a bit better.

A: Pours a pale yellow sunrise. Nice cloudy haze. Very foamy white head. Champagne like carbonation provides plenty of bubbles.

S: Floral/spicy/lemon citrus/coriander & pepper

T: Yum! Fruity-nectarine, peaches, & mango. Spices/cloves/alcohol/sweet with a dry finish.

M: Clean finish

O: High alcohol content is cleverly masked by the potpourri of flavors.
