A: Beautiful hazy peach-copper with a finger of bubbly head that quickly vanishes. Decent retention with minimal lacing.

S: Cloves, coriander, fresh grasses, belgian yeast, jammy marmalade, and pineapple. Fantastic blend of varying tropical/citrus fruits with an earthy grass aroma. Like much of Unibroues offerings this comes across in a very refreshing manner.

T: Bold juicy orange and pineapple qualities, sweet banana, cloves, potent floral character, and a lovely medicinal-like grassy element. Similar to aroma with a refreshing and semi-crisp taste. Very complex yet well balanced. Alcohol masterfully well hidden. Incredible taste.

M: Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation that works brilliantly here. Pleasantly oily with a lingering dry and chalky character.

D: An excellent Unibroue product that's very worthy of the high accolades.

Re-review from my original post on 01-27-12

Poured from a 12oz screw-top(!) bottle (Best Before date: 11 -29-14) into a 14oz Libbey snifter.

A- Pours a cloudy, golden/yellow with a 2-finger head dissipating rather quickly.

S- Remarkable and wonderfully complex...Granny Smith apple, (green) grape, lemon peel, orange, banana, biscuit, clove and allspice are all present in the nose.

T- Everything present in the nose is found on the palate with citrus rind and spice as the dominate flavors. Very, very well balanced.

M- Aggressive carbonation makes all the flavors dance across your palate and finishes very dry like a sparkling wine/champagne.

O- Simply awesome and perhaps my favorite of the Unibroue classics (next to Maudite). Like Duvel, I suggest sampling La Fin Du Monde as fresh as possilbe (under the right conditions, 36-48 month shelf life).

Review from 12/2010 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours slightly cloudy yellow-orange amber. Slight head, but a bit of lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and fruit, very nice. Slightly dry, sweet malt, caramel, fruit and Belgian spicing. Delicious and wonderful. Perhaps the best non-belgian tripel.

poured into a pint glass. This beer had an orangish color with medium head. Carmel and other spices mad this beer taste rare. Very strong tasting but it is worth it. Mouthful is about the same. Not your usual beer, but a walk on the canadian side this beer is one of canada's finist
