12 Oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- Hazy light orange with a three finger of a white head. An orange mango colored head. The head is literally making noise as it dissipates into the beer. Awesome visible carbonation and good lacing. A thing of beauty.

S- Very grassy and fruity. A lot of lemon and lime in here. A crazy blend of spices as well keep it changing. A pungent wheat smell and a crisp Belgian yeast character. A terrific and festive smelling brew.

T- A bite of bitterness up front and a full bodied wheat flavor comes through. Terrific light fruitiness, some faint citrus. A slight bit of caramel maltiness and a little bit of various spices, no sip tastes the same. Very slight alcohol keeps the flavor in check. Its hard to pick out many flavors because its complex and blends very well.

M- I do think this is a bit over carbonated at first but this beer is a sipper and if you take your time with it, the taste and feel will evolve. This is also a strong beer and you probably wont be able to throw back very many.

O- This is a truly fantastic triple and a refreshing new take on the style, at least from what I am used to.

Best before 07-27-14. Poured into a Westvleteren goblet.

Trapped much of the yeast cake inside the bottle off of the pour. Body is a hazy lemon yellow color. I poured this rather daintily thinking the head would be voluminous. Turns out, I only get a half-inch and it fizzled out. The beer looks pretty highly carbonated. 3.5

Bready, doughy yeast up front with a spice drop backing. Clove yeast esters with hints of banana and pear. Smells pretty superb. Not overly sweet (like some Belgians) or spicy (like many crafts) for a tripel, and I appreciate that. 4.5

Big yeast component in the taste (indicative of Unibroue brewing), but it fits the style and is almost matched by massively bready pale malts and a clove spice zing. Initial fruits imply banana, but the finish gets washed with flavors of apple and white grape. Still, the fruitiness is not the focal point. Quite the opposite end of the spectrum from Tripel Karmeliet. Reminds me a bit of Ename Tripel or maybe Chimay White. There’s the usual sneaky alcohol that shakes you up after two-thirds the drink. A fantastic tripel. 4.5

Medium-high carbonation, almost high. Deceivingly spritzy. Heavier than medium body. Feels big and bready and all the while dry and palatable. Nice feel. 4.0

More often than not, I have been disappointed with Unibroue as a whole. But, La Fin Du Monde is an elite beer, no question. I can do without many of their strong darks, wits, fruit beers, and pales; but, I’ll be back now and again to enjoy this here tripel. 4.5
