5/5  rDev +15.7%

One of the first craft beers I drank on a regular basis—and still one of my favorites.

It pours a hazy honeyed-gold with tight lacing on the foam. Looks incredible.

The beer has this incredible floral, fruity aroma. Spring fruits, strawberries and peach blossoms, and a little citrus zest—citron, some orange zest. Smells wonderful.

Tastes amazing. Each sip is a new treat that the palate unwraps. There’s a zesty bite but it’s not a big hoppy beer. More fruit, more floral, more layers of lightly nuanced flavors. Orange peel, coriander, and those springs fruits all in perfect tandem. Crisp, sharp, and fantastic.

Absolutely resplendent. This beer truly is worthy of the end of the world.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Best before date 3/7/14

A: White two finger head with good retention that leaves a cap throughout. Body is a slightly hazy golden straw. Lacing is present and it follows the beer down the glass.

S: Bursting with aroma. I could smell it long before I put it under my nose. Heavy clove, less heavy coriander, bready yeast, biscuit and grain, pepper, light fruit, lemon and orange peel.

T: Tremendous balance...the many flavors really meld together. It’s is so unified that it makes it a challenge to dissect the flavors. The yeast, clove, pepper and coriander are there. Also, lemon, orange peel and grain. Starts a little sweet but finishes dry, featuring a warming alcohol sensation.

M: Very dry and tingly. Body is medium-light. Carbonation is high and cuts some of the dryness and adds to the enjoyment.

O: I kept finding scents and flavors in La Fin Du Monde. The dryness keeps it from being my favorite tripel, but I can’t deny that it is a wonderfully complex and well designed beer.

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.
