3.15/5  rDev -27.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Cloudy golden orange color. Not much head and there won't be much lacing. Still the orange gold glow seems fairly nice. This beer has great legs and it's surprising given that there just isn't any lacing.

Spicy, pear and hop aromas. Yeast, almost bread like (boring bread) in nature. Like most of these unibroue beers it is hard to get much aroma from it.

Spices dominate this beer, followed by dry yeast, and wheat flavors. There are some light citrus flavors trying to be heard from but the yeast and spices are just drowning them out.

Over carbonated in the mouth, but the body seems just right. A really refreshing beer given the 9% which just doesn't show up. I'm not a huge fan of this much carbonation, but it works just fine for this style.

I really don't like this style. I like this beer about as much as others I've had. I don't get it, I don't think I want to get it.

750 ml corked bottle -> tulip glass

Pours a beautiful paler-golden color in the glass and is exceptionally cloudy. It glows in the glass. Tons of beautiful creamy white head with only a modest amount of lacing on the glass. It's very fragrant and smells sweet with some fruitiness (peach? apricot?) and spice in the scent. Drinking it makes you feel warm. You get a lot of the spices (cloves?) along with a deliciously sweet maltiness. The fruit still plays a big part in the taste, and the warmth comes from the alcohol content which is definitely more present as you swallow the beer. The beer is super creamy in your mouth. I really enjoyed this beer experience.

4.43/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Appears a golden brown with an average, creamy, white head. Leaves an average amount of lacing, nothing too impressive there.

Has a very heavy fruity smell. Very sweet aroma, and the apples are what stands out most to me. The is also very sweet and malty. There's also some yeast flavors present and the fruit also stands forward amongst everything else.

The mouthfeel seems thick and creamy, yet with a decent amount of carbonation. This goes down easily, with some great flavors that make it very enjoyable to drink. Overall, a great brew, and something I'll definitely be picking up again.

4.38/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed "Ale on Lees" from the Wolf Public House in Ballwin, MO. Bought for $6, poured from a 12oz bottle into a Snifter, and reviewed this ale I've had many times from a 750 mL.
On the back there is an Enjoy By Date of: 11-17-13.

Appearance- Golden orange color, very cloudy (can't see fingers on other side of glass), 2 Fingers of HUGE bubbled head that dissipated quickly. Lacing was very thin and rings formed around head as well. Nice appearance!

Smell- Tons of banana and alcohol. There might also be a hint of clove or spice as well somewhere here.

Taste- Quick taste of heavy yeast and then bananas for sure. There is a bitterness that is also present which has a lemon type of contribution. Almost tastes like a Banana Ale.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, pricks the tongue with carbonation, but yet smooth! Goes down like candy.

Overall- First time writing an OVERALL (section of reviewing) a beer. I would say this bottle really sells by the appearance and then being one of the easiest beers to drink, this only makes you want another one! I will be buying by the 12oz instead of the bombers so I will know how many I've had in a night! Great!

4.18/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 mL corked & caged bottle date stamped L03131W14Q poured into a Duvel snifter around 10-12 C. I have had this before, but never reviewed it, so here goes...

A: I am expecting a world class beer here and I get a slightly cloudy (perhaps this is my fault - I knocked the bottle off a three foot ledge earlier in the day). Regardless it is a straw yellow with hints of orange hue along with a fizzy white head that you hear buzzing away and disappearing post-haste leaving nary a dab of lacing. Very disappointing start.

S: Initial the beer is overwhelmed by a yeasty french bread sort of aroma. Fruty esters come through slowly delivering an enjoyable nose. Alcohol and a faint musky earth finish. Enjoyable, though a touch more muted at times than I would like

T: Belgian funk, best described by myself as the rind of a brie really plays well on the palate, though not too dominant as to overpower the rest of the body of the beer. Slight hints of bread and a light sweet finish on the beer keep the beer balanced. Nominal bitterness that grows over time in the finish helps cut the sweetness, though it is the sweetness that lingers. The sweet finish is strongly reminiscent of apple juice...

M: Slightly prickly, well balanced, could have been drier for the style.

O: A very enjoyable beer. Not as sensational as I recall it being, but having enough definitive character to keep me interested. I love belgian beers, and while I really enjoyed it, I feel like I have had better triples...

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured chilled into a glass that sort of resembles a chalice. (Where the hell do you find a chalice anyway?)
My first Tripel so I am very excited.

Appearance: Large fluffy head springs up from initial pour, disappears quickly. A very carbonated looking beer, like champagne with all the bubbles.

Smell: A smorgasboard of fruit flavors, massive esters, a very strong aroma.

Taste: Small hop flavor up front, very fruity - apples, pears. Light but complex.

Mouthfeel: Very carbonated, nice and airy.

Overall: Certainly an interesting beer/style. Not my favorite style, but still very good. Great looking bottle btw.

4.1/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Small white one finger head that disappears quickly. Cloudy, opaque dark yellow body

Smell - Hefe-like. Slight maltiness, hidden citrus.

Taste - Traces of orange. Slightly sweet front end that quickly gets eaten up by the bitter lime peel finish, which carries a bit into the aftertaste. Alcohol isn't as hidden as in other Tripels I've had.

Mouthfeel - Sharp. Full and frothy.

Overall Drinkability - Very enjoyable beer. It's a tripel with an alcoholic bite that well represents the ABV.

4.47/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Golden in color, Hazy and Creamy looking. Not much head and what does form from the pour disappears quickly, leaves a nice lace of head on the outer edge and lacing on the glass as you drink.

Smell - Fruity with a mild Hop background. Green Apple mixed with Bananas.

Taste - Light and refreshing at first, then a big fruit taste, followed up with a mild hop finish. Slight Warming from the 9% ABV, but not offensively strong, just enough of a warming to let you know this is a Triple.

Mouthfeel - Creamy and Delicious, very smooth with a very nice fruity aftertaste.

Drinkabilitly - Very Drinkable, I found myself sipping this beer and savoring it, instead of wanting to gulp it down. A really great Beer.

4.38/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Foil wrapped bottle poured into a tall glass. Decent smooth lasting head, and cloudy yellow appearence, just a bit darker than a pils.

Smell:Sweet smell that develops as it starts to warm, reminds me of unripe peaches.

Taste: Lots of flavour here, hops are upfront with a crisp green apple-like bite, but this comes with a matching sweetness keeping this beer well balenced. I like flavour in my beer but this beer maybe have a bit more than most standard beers people may be used to.

Mouthfeel: is smooth easy to drink but really a sipping beer for most people. A bit of alcohol warming, but not at all overwhelming definately considering the content.

Overall this is an excelent beer, and my second favourite from unibroue.

4.28/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz/355ml bottle, silver foil-wrapped. Part of a mixed 4-pack of Unibroues picked up recently at Trader Joe's (a steal at $7.99). Dated 'Best Before 11-02-13'. Poured to the trusty La Chouffe tulip.

For all the fine beers I've reviewed over the years, hard to believe I haven't written up this one before...

A: Glowingly golden but a little on the hazy side, even a fine dusting of hanging yeast (and that from the top 250ml of the bottle). Plenty of head, a 2-finger bounty of white froth, and cascading carbonation. Only fair head retention, though; a creamy ring and a little swirling after a couple minutes, with broken and non-sticking lace.

S: Vibrant doughy sweetness, lots of spice and sugary pear/apple. Honey and flowers, hardly a whiff of hops.

T: Upfront fruity notes: candied apples, sweet berries and spice... even a not-so-subtle clove/spice-filled 'bubble gum'. Concentrated 'ale on lees' yeast gives a biscuity flavor, honey-sweetened and there's an orange cream/blossom in the finish. It's a roiling cauldron of sugars, starches, and spice - always developing, always interesting.

M: Mouth-filling carbonation, active almost to a fault before gradually mellowing. Still, each sip send sparks flying for a few seconds before a stickier yeast envelopes every orifice of the mouth. Lip-smackingly malty.

O: Really a fine Tripel, among the better ones I've enjoyed... and a shame to have so often neglected this when it's so readily available... and nicely priced! A sipper at 9%. No real flaws, just a solid version of the style, start to finish.

4.47/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From my notes, poured from a bomber into a wine glass.

A This beer has a nice golden color to it, with a nice but short head.

S This beer has a very strong nose of fruit more specifically some grapes with a hint of what might have been apple with some yeast also present but mostly fruit. Very aromatic.

T The taste is quite crisp with hints of fruit especially apples what I think might have been grapes coming through. The alcohol is very well masked as it is relegated to a hint on the finish.

M Its a little heavy on the carbonation, but otherwise a very light refreshing beer.

Overall I thought that this is an excellent tripel. It is light and refreshing and very drinkable but still has excellent aroma and taste, and if it wasn't for the abv I could drink at least a couple of bombers of this on a nice spring day.

A- A lighter golden straw color, a bit hazy. Pours a creamy head that dissipates but leaves some lacing behind.

S- Wow. Has a deep, fruity, sweet smell. Bananas and yeast. It makes you want to stick your nose in the glass before every sip.

T- This is a refreshing beer, the alcohol is present but masked by the fruity, yeasty flavor. Has a bit of a lingering aftertaste that dries out a bit.

M- Good carbonation that tingles on the tongue and really promotes the flavor.

Overall this is a very good beer that is widely available. a great intro into a tripel for those that are newer to the style, and one I'll still come back to.

I am not a fan of this type of beer but do appreciate that many folks like them. I had it recently at a beer tasting. The appearance was cloudy and light yellow with a big head and a lot of carbonation. Taste was typical of a fruity vegetable beer. Mouthfeel was average. Smell was definitely fruity and citrus like. Overall this is a good beer for the style and is definitely drinkable if you are the pretentious type who follows the crowds who have nothing better to drink. However, it is better than an American adjunct brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Opaque light golden color. White bubbly head, dissipated pretty quick but with light lacing. Poured into a goblet.

S - Yeast is prominent, and I can make out some tropical fruit like banana.

T - Taste is nice. Kind of hard to nail down. Unique yeasts, that are up front, Belgian style ale. The sweetness comes right after the yeast, tropical fruit like banana. Pretty well balanced. I can't really describe it but it is good. Sweetness is subtle..the finish is not overly sweet. I find it getting better and better. Alcohol is masked very well, it is not dry.

M - Not thin, bubbly. Good carbonation but not overly so. Very nice feel.

My first offering from Unibroue. Sampled it from a 12 oz. brown bottle in an ice cold pint glass.

A: Great pourer into glass. Decent head and a good amount of sticky lacing on the sides. Not an over-foamer like some Big Belgian-style beers.

S: Complex smells of pepper, cloves and fruit sweetness on the nose.

T: Very well balanced with a lot of depth. Plenty of dried fruity notes and semi-sweetness from the yeasts and malts. Has a rochefort-like middle of nutty cheesiness and a dry finish.

M: Full bodied but not bitter. Alcohol is well balanced and warming throughout. Fully carbonated retaining fizz throughout.

O: A very fine beer overall. This one really stands up as a true Belgian. It's the first New World produced big beer that's worthy of an Abbey/Trappist level of quality.

12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass

Best before date printed on the back label

19 IBU's

Appearance: Hazy golden honey color. Pours with a nice white head. Very nice sticky and patchy lacing. Solid carbonation is present as well.

Smell: Yeasty and phenolic on the nose. Strong clove influence is present. Slight citrus notes. Mild banana. Very complex. Slightly herbal presence as well.

Taste: Excellent malty sweetness upon the arrival. Sweet clove taste with a lingering herbal finish. There is a warming affect of the high ABV, however the alcohol is masked very well. Intriguing. Beautiful balance between all of the tasting notes.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, good carbonation on the tongue. Creamy and smooth.

Drinkability: This beer is quite refreshing. Very easy to drink despite the high alcohol content.

Ending notes: This is a very complex, but enjoyable brew. A perfect archetype of the style. I would highly recommend this to any beer enthusiast. Once you have a sip, you want to go back for more. Phenomenal. Best tripel I have had thus far.

12 oz bottle.
From notes;

Pours a hazy light golden with a thin bubbly head. Nose is phenol, spices, banana esters, sweet light fruits. Taste is balanced, Belgian yeast like flavour mingles with the banana, cloves and candied fruits. Sweet on the palatte. Medium bodied, carbonated. Strange sense of metallic notes and strong yeast flavours kind of underwhealmed me here. ABV was well hidden but felt after one serving. Not one of my favourite Canadian breweries despite its popularity down south.

3.68/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Note: I had accidentally dropped this bottle on the ground.

Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow that reminds me of a lemonade mixed with honey kind of yellow. The beer gives a one finger head when poured and dissipates modestly, which leaves some lacing behind.

Smell:I get a whiff of banana and a bit of alcohol. Overall, the smell reminds of candied fruit especially banana and maybe apricot.

Taste: Sweet malts and I can taste the yeasts used to make it. The candied banana and apricot flavor make their presence known, which makes it sweet and slightly sugary. However, the finish tastes a little bit watered down but I don't know if that's only because of what to happened to the beer I was drinking or what.

Mouthfeel: A nice crispy feel with medium carbonation on the tongue.

Overall: I'm fairly happy with the La Fin Du Monde and is a pretty decent (cheap) alternative to the Tripel Karmeliet. While I still prefer the Tripel, I would not mind buying another four pack of the La Fin.

A - Pours a hazy light golden-orange. Rocky white head that gives way to minor lacing.

S - Nose of candied fruits. Bananas, clove. Faint alcohol in the back.

T - Sweet and lush. Hard to pin down the malts that form a solid backdrop to the flavors, subtle caramel. Clove spice and plenty of fruit esters: bananas, pear, light flavors. A profound balance. Alcohol warmth with every retro-olfaction. The hops presence, like the depth of the alcohol, is hiding in the back and adds to the very crisp and dry finish.

M - Medium, carbonated, refreshing.

O - Outstanding Belgian. Exactly what a Tripel should be.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

C: The color is a light hazy yellow which looks like lemonade in the narrow end of the glass and like a hefeweizen on the wider end. The color also has a light pink hue which is kind of a plus. With a light pour it produced about a quarter inch of head, which dissipated in about a minute.

S: Light Citrus notes. Not much going on here. It smells to me like a slightly more complex hefeweizen than the Blue Moon standard. I guess that makes it slightly above average in this category.

T: This is where this beer really shines. At first taste you will definitely taste the citrus and the coriander in the beer. The best part of the beer in the complex aftertaste which really can't be described easily. The first taste is the best because your taste buds haven't yet adapted to the flavors and the alcohol, which is noticable but not a dominant presence here.

M: When pouring the beer I noticed that it poured thicker than your average hefeweizen or pilsner, which tend to be watery. Well, there's no arguing it now. It has excellent mouth feel. The beer has some weight which gives it an excellent body and also a slight bite on the tongue from the carbonation.

Overall Grade: B+/A-

M - Carbonation is strong on this one, almost like a soda water feel to it. Kind of an aluminum can like flavor in the aftertaste

The end of the world! On lees!

A - orangey with thick ever so slightly off white head. nice bubble action going on with healthy lacing

S - mostly fruity yeast character on the nose with a wheat malt note thrown in.

T - Nice showcase of belgian styled yeasts - banana, slight bubblegum, sourdough, with stone fruits such as apricot and a bit of peach. Wheat character fills out the malt profile nicely with softness and a bit of a bread note. Slight alcohol tinge on the backend with a faint shot of hops. This is really about the yeast

M - full bodied but more on the dry side with a nice texture.

D - good drinkability for me - but it does sneak up on ya! IMHO - one of the best belgian styled brews (i.e., one of the best "belgian" beers produced outside belgium).

Pours from a 750 mL bottle with a beautiful hazy golden yellow color and is capped by a huge, light, fluffy, eggshell-white head. The aroma is more expected than exceptional, though, with a light musty yeastiness primarily, but also a bit of clove, fruit, and even a hint of earthy hops. The flavor is more impressive, with a combination of yeast, lemon, unripe pear, orange rind, and clove again, the overall impression is a wonderful dry, dull fruitiness combined with a characteristic Belgian-style yeast. The texture is creamy and delicate, but not in any way thin-bodied.

Overall, this is certainly not one of my preferred styles, but this beer is addictive, which is troublesome when I'm drinking 750 mL of 9% abv beer by myself. I may not like many tripels, but I like La Fin Du Monde.

Others here have reviewed this beer with very clever and descriptive tasting notes. I'm going to sum up my feelings in simple phrase:

It tastes and smells like a very strong hefeweizen.

I really wanted to like this beer given all the glowing reviews for it, but it just doesn't do it for me. I've had other belgian styles and enjoyed them, so maybe the tripel style is simply not my cup of tea.

I'm glad to have had the opportunity to try this one, I just won't be trying it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottle is marked best before June 2015.

Look: golden body that is cloudy with yeast and sediment. A gentle pour gives a two finger head of white foam that lasts a long time. As I drink, there's only a little lace left behind in this beer and it doesn't stick around for very long.

Smell: Belgian spices, clove, pepper, fruity smells of pears and peaches, and a hint of citrus peel.

Taste: the fruit from the aroma stands out with hints of spice and a bit of alcohol. There's a bit of a phenolic taste as well as some orange peel. Its sweet without being cloying and there are some yeast flavors in here too. Nothing here is over powering and it all works together nicely. Well balanced tripel.

Feel: medium bodied, nicely carbonation, hides the alcohol well.

Drink: easy drinking and you could have a few of these if it weren't 9% alcohol.

Overall, a pretty good tripel. I've yet to have a tripel that particularly impressed me but this one comes close. I can see why this is such a popular tripel. I would recommend giving it a try. Cheers!
