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

I am somewhat new to the triple scene, about a year or so. I have tried about 40 triples and this is by far the best to date. I keep hearing there are places that serve this on tap in my area (MN) but I have yet to find them. I recommend La Fin Du Monde to everyone I know.

This is my favorite beer by far.

Poured a 12-ounce bottle into a Mad Elf tulip glass. Pours golden- pretty much a standard appearance for a tripel. Aroma is extremely fruity; almost overwhelming. The taste almost completely matches the aroma- such an aggressive spiciness to this beer that it borders on perfumy. Overall a decent beer fr an excellent Canadian brewery, but probably on the average end of beers I've had in this style in my opinion. When I go for a Unibroue brew I go for Maudite- I find it so much better.

I've had this beer so many times but never reviewed it. This time I had it at a annual party at Capital City Club Atlanta, GA.
From bottle into Flute glass (its apparently all they had)

Appearance: Pours lightly hazy, pale orange body with a 1 inch white head.

Smell: Strong malt smell with fruit tone, plum, pear, raisins, a dark Belgian typical.

Taste: Sweet hit with a blend of the fruit smells in the taste. A counterbalance of spices, bitterish orange peel, and hops against the sweetness of the fruit and malt. Very crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. With medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Always a winner, great Belgian tripel from Canada.

It pours a very light golden, honey orange; pretty cloudy with tons of carbonation running up the sides, like sparkling wine. Wooh.

It smells very nice, but not TOO complex. If you'd had any Unibroue before, you can detect that house yeast among anything else. But the taste is much more complex!

Slightly tart and fizzy on the tongue and it goes down smooth, with some yeast and breadiness on the end. A very very slight bit of heat coming through, but no taste of actual alcohol.

Overall this is a winner. Nothing too out of the box, but exactly to the style with that classic Unibroue yeast quality to it.
