This is a great beer, I pass this over way too many times, incredibly flavorful and looks amazing.

The beer pours a beautiful by the book hazy orange and gold color with a head that just will not die, a huge fluffy bone white beauty. Outstanding.

The smell is not huge, but has a nice yeasty mix of flavors with some nice fruity esters and bubble gum sweetness, a great spicy clove note too, it's really quite nice.

The beer just bursts with flavors, an outstanding note of clove and coriander with some great sweet and savory malt and taffy bubble gum like flavors, great apple, grape, banana, and stone fruit flavors too. It's super rich and the alcohol is covered in a delectably sweet blanket without any heat but only adding complexities and big flavors. I can't think of any tripels I've enjoyed more than this in flavor.

The feel strikes a great balance of bubbly and great medium body. No burn but only a long lingering complex flavor.

An outstanding beer, I can see why even though this is not rare by any means, this beer is still clinging to its place in the top 100.

Poured into a tulip from a 12oz bottle.

Beautiful hazy golden color with white lacy head. Good retention with beautiful lacing. Nice looking beer.

Smell is all Belgian. Fruity, yeasty, delicious. Chalky sweetness.

Is this the best tasting beer in the world? If not, it'll do until the best comes along. It's everything I love about a Trippel. Sweet, tart, malt, yeast, all at once. Just enough hoppiness for perfect balance. The alcohol is very well hidden but certainly there.

Mouthfeel is perfect. Smooth with just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall this is one of my favorite beers. If you like tripels this is a must try. Unibroue is one of the best breweries in north America.

This stuff along with the rest of the Unibroue line is liquid gold, Texas tea, that "potent erl," whatever you may call it. However, La Fin Du Monde stands out as being a real perfection of the trippel style with that lip smackin long lastin delicious good taste of the CanadianBelgianFrench yeast strain.
Don't let the appearance fool you; this is a pale, clearish straw golden beer with large-ish bubbles (it seemed to me) that were bolder than the measley, weakling bubbles produced by Cristal, for example. However it is no Pabst!! You'll notice it stinks; spicy is a good start but the banana and fruit really clobber you after that. Once drinking is commenced the Fin du Monde tastes like a perfectly spiced Indian dessert- cardamom and clove flavors are present. The carbonation is just about spot on. For my first ever restaurant-beer and a blind choice by me with no prior knowledge of Unibroue or La Fin other than a love of the trippel style, I'd rate this a 6/5.
