4.45/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured into my favorite 285mL weiss glass.

A: Wow, this beer looks fantastic. Even on a very tentative pour I got a few inches of thick, poofy foam that settled down to a good inch or so. The beer underneath is a cloudy deep yellow to shiny gold. Little bubbles continuously creep up from the bottom of the glass. By the bottom of the glass there's only a very thin head with moderate lacing to 2/3 of the way up the glass.

S: I'm not getting a lot of smell from this one. But what I get is distinct citrus and floral. There's a little bit of grain back there for balance. But as I said, the smell isn't particularly powerful. It's pleasant and soothing, as opposed to overpowering.

T: A hit of sweetness at first, but not sugary. More like biting into a lightly sweet fruit, maybe a not-quite-ripe orange. Lots of complexity. Grains -- wheat? Light spice. A neat bitterness toward the end and on the finish. Very clean, somewhat crisp. No booze in the taste. Fairly distinctive lingering orange zest flavor. This beer is fantastic. It's perfectly balanced, it's inviting, it's neither beery or boozey. I think just about anyone could drink this and enjoy it.

M: Medium -- there's a big boost from how foamy this beer is. The carbonation is nice and moves the flavors around well. Notably for this 9% beer there's pretty much no astringent alcohol. Great!

D: Dangerous. Crisp, highly drinkable. Cool on a hot day. I'm having to force myself to slow down, because I know otherwise this 9% is going to catch up and kick my butt!

3.9/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Decanted into my Stone Tulip glass.

On the pour you get a cloudy golden-orange brew, topped by a large creamy head. The head is not long lasting (unfortunately), and there is minimal lacing.

The nose is fruity, spicy and malty all at once. I'm detecting some citrus type fruits, a touch of white pepper and perhaps some corriander. The nose is a bit restrained .. wish it could be bigger.

The taste is bold and Belgian. A spicy maltiness comes to the fore, with mild fruity esters in the background. Hops are not noticeable, and the alcolhol is just barely noticeable. Mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation makes for a wonderful and refreshing experience. Flavors dance on your palate.

Dangerously drinkable, enjoy this out of a snifter type glass or a tulip, sit back, and contemplate 'the end of the world' (which is what La Fin du Mond translates into).

Na Zdravje!

Had this at hazelwood in Ballard, poured into a nice tulip glass.

A- a great clear gold with a decent head and lacing, it looked like a great beer and I was excited to try.

S- smelled wild, almost like a sour beer, which was really cool. not quite overpowering but you could smell the spices and malt very well.

T- tasted lighter than it smelled at first but as it warmed up the taste came out more and more, sweet, spicy and some warming alcohol. Great beer. yum.

M- light and refreshing.

D- It was good to enjoy one or two but more than that its sweetness and alcohol might get to you. Overall a great beer and a great Triple.

This beer is an experience. Pours a hazy gold with a lively head and active carbonation. The smell is ripe with fruit, yeast and spice. There is some alcohol in the aroma, but I can't stay mad at it. The taste is tart and refreshing at the same time. It's a perfect example of the Tripel style.

4.58/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

bright cloudy golden color. medium to high carbonation though it struggled to form a head. little foam remains on top. dirty glass perhaps? left most of the sediment in the bottle so not a lot of particles settling to the bottom of the glass.

intense yeast, spice, clove aroma. some banana giving the impression of a supercharged hefe. not a touch of alcohol which is impressive for a 9% beer. slight bubblegum (this being the first time i have ever really noticed it in any beer).

nice spice on the palate. just the right amount. yeast, and a touch of alcohol. full malt presence with a bit of bitterness to balance. maybe not hop bitterness, but there is plenty there to counter the malt so it doesnt get too sweet. lingers on the tongue which is nice because it does taste so damn good. not a huge belgian character (what i call that phenolic fruity yeast twang), but doesnt need it.

wow. just fantastic. i dont get to try many belgians but this comes across as a simple beer done exceedingly well. it doesnt need to distract you with fancy extras because its got everything it needs and nothing it doesnt. and lucky for me, everything its got, i want.
more please.

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

Very very different.

A: Very wit like, looks identical to a Blue Moon with just a pinch of amber. Golden yellow.Thick frothy white head that dissipates quickly to a small thin layer but endures till the last drop.

S: Wit in character as well, with very strong floral perfume like fragrances. Hops are definitely evident in the masking of this brew with a strong sweetness in the background. All things December odors, clove, coriander and for sure wildflower honey. Nothing pungent but a bit musky.

T: Wow, what in the world. I dont think I have ever had anything like this. Im sure this is not my style of beer but this is definitely good. I honestly am having a hard time distinguishing the malt character here and I dont taste bananas as prevalent as it seemed in a couple other reviews. What does stand out is an obscure mystery flavor wrapped up in a huge amount of spice, hops and honey. Hops are earthy and bitter which is nice and ALL OVER this brew. The spices that seem obvious are clove, cardamom, black pepper, chamomile and strong citrus coriander and with the more I drink it I notice a huge orange rind flavor. The honey is obvious wildflower and wild it is. Very very different.

M: Fully carbonated with non stop everlasting bubbles. A bit high for my liking but it seems perfect for the brew.

D: This is where it seems to fail. Im not sure I could do more than one of these. Not bad though.

Overall: Very interesting beer, I finished this about an hour ago and my palate is still smashed up with the flavors from it. Probably wont buy again, due to the session capabilities of it. None the less, it was a great brew.

4.72/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with silver foil wrapping into a 14 oz mug.

A: A hazy, golden straw color; somewhat cloudy because of the sediment in the bottle (bottle conditioned). 2 finger thick, dense and bubbly white head which quickly dissipated. No lacing whatsoever.

S: Sweet fruit esters (apples and pears come to mind). I'm also picking up a heavy but sweet doughy/yeasty scent. Some residual hints of brewing spices (coriander, nutmeg, cinnamon) and a touch of hops.

T: AMAZING! A delicious, sweet flavor dominates at the start, again hinting at apples and pears, bananas (probably from the Belgian-style yeast strain). Remarkably, the fruit flavor profile reminds me of a Weihenstephaner, only sweeter. There is a bit of a crisp, spicy edge to this beer, not from the alcohol, but more of a citrusy, rind-like spice, possibly from orange peels and coriander. Mid sip, light fruit flavors transitions into the mellower malt profile, primarily a yeasty, freshly-baked bread flavor. Finish is reminiscent of champagne - crisp, effervescent and yet highly refreshing and oh so tempting - I don't want the flavors to end! Must. Take. Another. Sip.

M: Great carbonation give this beer a light, crispy, tingly mouthfeel - again, reminiscent of champagne.

D: 9% ABV? Are you kidding... no way. This beer is devilish because the alcohol is so expertly hidden; I only get a slight warming effect! Add that to the delicious blend of crisp fruity and malty, bready flavors and this beer is the picture of drinkability on a warm spring evening.

I am highly impressed with La Fin Du Monde. I'm even more impressed given the fact that this beer is readily available around home, and at killer prices ($6.99 for a 750? Yes please!). A exemplary beer, especially paired with fresh sushi (California and Rainbow Tuna/Salmon Rolls). I will be reserving a permanent place in my fridge for this beer as my go-to triple!

4.35/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Golden, slightly cloudy. Head pours with 2 fingers of thick, tight remnants lasting roughly two minutes.

S - Instant banana, followed by the hops, followed by the pear. Lasting wafting acidity afterwards. Sweet and slightly sour.

T - Smooth. Delicious. Banana and hops are immediate and slight, with pear and the lasting alcohol bitterness following and lasting between drinks. At 9% ABV, has the potential to stay with you. Overall, described as bright and warming.

M - Smooth, thick and even a little creamy. The carbonation isn't overbearing, and adds a slight, necessary edge to the drink helping it go down very smoothly.

D - Definitely a good opener. Drinking these all night could cause issues, but you'd happy by the end of it.

Overall an excellent example of a trippel. I've tasted darker and heavier, but this golden version masks it's alcohol perfectly and leaves an excellent aftertaste. Not a session beer, but perfect for a first review. Respect beer!

Bottle at the Flying Saucer in Memphis

A: Deep hazy orange, puffy head. Nice lace windows.

S: Nice citrusy/malts, clove, sweet banana

T: Explosion of a mix of sweet ripe oranges, some spice, some slight bananna. Finishes with a nice lite hop bite. Awesome.

M: Very clean, meduim body. Coats mouth with a mix of semi sweet and light bitterness.

D: VERY drinkable trippel. 9% ABV is too well hidden, more so than any other higher abv I had had. Much too easy to quaff.

A: Hazy yellow, straw-like appearance with a huge bright white head. Great retention down the glass.

S: Cloves, lemon, cinnamon, straw, and malt

T: Sweet citrus up front with faint spice in the background. Hints of banana that stays sweet throughout. Floral hops at the end, with an astringent finish. Alcohol is barely noticeable, but does provide a nice warmth.

M: Crisp, clean, high carbonation, but smooth throughout.

D: Very drinkable tripel.... Very drinkable. Delicious, crisp, and a complex layered taste makes this a great brew!

Bottom Line: Try this beer. It is one of those that everyone needs to have tasted at least once.

This beer is a Tripel Belgian styled-ale. It has a nice orange and spicy aroma. The flavors are pretty complex and mostly great. To start, you get nothing except for a blast of carbonation that lasts at least a second. But finally that evolves on your palate. First tastes are of orange and other citrus along with spices, noticeably cloves and cinnamon. Lots of yeasty and doughy flavors as well. A nice finish and aftertaste too. The 9% alcohol warms you up but in a good way and is not annoying at all.

12 oz bottle, large tulip glass

Pours a cloudy golden blonde with a thick white everlasting head. The carbonation bubbles are interesting to watch.

Aroma of cloves, yeast and fruits (apple, pear & banana)

Flavor is sweet and smooth. the cloves are pronounced as well as the fruit, mostly apple and banana. Kind of like a spiced cider. Alcohol is slightly evident, but not overpowering.

Great carbonation and smooth to drink. Despite the appearance, this is crisp and clean.

Great brew overall, I am becoming a huge fan of Unibroue.

12 ounce bottle picked up at the Beer Stop in West Hazleton. Poured into my tulip glass. After stirring up the yum-yum's in the bottom of the bottle, appears a cloudy golden copper color with about two fingers of tightly packed, small bubbled foam. A nice pour. Smells and tastes of sweet malts, candi sugar, cloves, spicy Unibroue house yeast, a touch of lemon peel and a hint of black pepper. Delicious! A notch above medium bodied and without a doubt, moderate carbonation. A classic!

A- Slightly hazy and golden in color with some very active streams of rising carbonation. The creamy white head is about 1/4" with some pretty good retention.

S- Light fruit, honey, white bread and a bit of Belgian spiciness. Aromatic and very nice.

T- Exactly the same as the aroma with just a slight astringent edge. Very clean tasting.

M- A beautiful amount of carbonation and very clean on the tail end.

D- A wonderful example of the style. A great beer that drinks easy and is easily obtainable.

4.15/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a Chimay goblet. Freshness date on bottle is December 15, 2011. This beer pours an orangey-gold color that becomes quite murky once the yeast sediment is added to the glass. The high amount of carbonation in the bottle rapidly forms a large, pale white head that is supplemented by small, yet constant carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The head dissipates very rapidly, and doesn't really leave any lace on my glass, probably due to the high ABV (9%).

Smell: The nose of this beer definitely screams out "Belgian", and the clove-like yeast aroma makes its presence known. There is also a generous portion of fruity esters in the nose of this beer, and there are notes of bananas, orange peel, and pears.

Taste: La Fin Du Monde quickly announces itself as a crisp, refreshing beer, and it begins with a hearty amount of soft, yet crisp carbonation that helps showcase the sweet, malt backbone of this beer. This moves to a very spicy, clove taste that is well balanced with the banana flavored esters. The beer finishes with just a touch of hop bitterness along with hints of black pepper and alcohol, and these add the characteristic Belgian spiciness to the characteristic Belgian dry finish. For a Canadian company Unibroue has done a really good job of making La Fin Du Monde taste like it's from Belgium.

Mouthfeel: As is the trademark for the style, this beer is highly carbonated, but beneath that carbonation is a heavenly smooth, medium bodied Tripel. Once the yeast is added the body is a bit fuller than without, so definitely swirl the last few drops around in the bottle and add the yeast.

Drinkability: Even though the box says "drink less, drink better" I could definitely put back a couple pints of this brew. Incredibly crisp, smooth, and refreshing, this is one exceptionally drinkable beer.

Notes: I've heard this beer called the "Canadian stand-in for Duvel", and after just drinking Duvel a few nights ago I have to agree. While Duvel is a better beer across the board, this is still one very good beer. It isn't anything that will knock your socks off, but it's still a solid offering from Unibroue. Definitely something I'll buy again.

12oz bottle poured into snifter.

A - Pours a hazy pale gold with a huge, fluffy white head. Excellent head retention. A great looking beer.

S - Sweet-smelling candi sugar, belgian yeast, clove spice, citrus.

T - Bready Belgian yeast, sweet malt, citrus, and spice. Very complex yet very well-balanced. Although it is 9% ABV, there is only the slightest hint of alcoholic taste. Very slight hop finish - very nice.

M - Light and creamy, highly carbonated.

D - Even with it's high ABV, incredible taste and incredible smoothness. Dangerous because you want to drink a lot of it but it will put you on your ass...

Arguably Unibroue's finest (along with Maudite). Highly recommended.

650ml bottle. This was the first Unibroue offering that I tried back in university in the mid-90s when they first shipped it out West. It was quite the eye-opener to my Big Rock-loving self at the time. Now, at a nice little university area bistro, one neither at the End of the Universe, nor the end of the world, for that matter, I revisit it years hence.

This beer pours (into a properly branded chalice, no less) a hazy orangish yellow hue, with a few fingers of puffy, bubbly white head, which leaves some streaky soap film lace around the glass as it quickly beats in outta Oka (what, too soon?).

It smells of sharp grainy pale malt, earthy yeast, fruity dry apple and pear, cracked black pepper, spicy cloves, a slight minerality, and herbal, dead leafy hops. The taste is big, blended orchard fruit - apricot, pears, banana and orange - edgy yeast, peppery cloves, grainy pale malt, sugary honey, and mild floral hops. Only a slight tingling is detectable for the elevated ABV - neat.

The carbonation is noticeable, but mostly in a frothy sort of way, the body a sturdy medium weight, and a tad cloying in its sugary sweetness, but I've come to appreciate this as just a sad fact of the style. It finishes off-dry, the fruit and sugary malt lingering harder than the yeast and/or spice seem to be.

Homerism (hah - this is too much of a big-ass, geographically speaking, for now, country for that) aside, this is really a rather good example of the style, going down nice and smooth in spite of the big boy booze quotient. It's been their flagship beer since day one for a reason, and it's not hard to see why.

First off i dont review many brews but have had some of the top 100 list easily but really feel this brew deserves a review.

A: Poured into a Stone tulip (im getting a bunch of Belgian chalices tomorrow finally from a guy here in AZ that is in the AZ Trappiste club that is here in AZ, they only drink Belgian style brews and im fortunate enough to become a new member). Nice head 1.5 inches kinda dissipates but not too fast.

S: Im not great at smell but you can definitly smell the sweetness of this brew.

Mouthfeel: "Well it feels great IMHO"!!! PERIOD!

Drinkability: One word "INSANE" in a fantastic way. It 9% abv and cant even taste the alc. at all could seriously drink these all day but the abv would for sure catch up to me.

Single 12oz. bottle from Trader Joes. First of all, SCREW OFF bottle cap underneath the silver foil was a disappointment. I almost have to ding it a point for that.

Poured cold into a Duvel Tulip. 1-finger head seems about right. Dark orange hues.

Pleasant yeasty aroma with a hint of mint.

Tastes like a classic tripel. I pick up a little caramel with some cherry notes on the back of the tongue. A touch metallic like I just licked a flagpole. Spearmint finish.

The alcohol hits me fast. Reminds me that I shouldn't drink a 9% on an empty stomach.

Waiting for it to warm up...

My uncle used to race pigeons. I remember the smell of playing around the pigeon coop as a child. This kind of smells like pigeon poop.

At room temperature the metal starts to come through more and there is now a new bitterness on the finish.

This started off as a very drinkable tripel. If I were tasting it blind, I probably would have guessed it to be a Chimay. I would drink this again. Next time I'm buying a 750ml.

The cork came off with a very lively pop. Poured into a tulip, the liquid was a cloudy dull orange with great effervescence. One finger of creamy head. Great nose, floral esters dominate. Ahhh this is the first beer I had from Unibroue and probably my first tripel (I first had it at least two years ago). I loved it then, and I love it now. Bitter floral hops taste great in the beginning of the flavor profile. These give way to a little pepper, coriander, mild sweet malts, and finishes with some nice bittering hops. Very creamy mouthfeel with the strong carbonation.

I don't know what everyone is so afraid of, the end of the world is delicious.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice x2.

A= semi-cloudy golden yellow with a thick rocky white head and minimal lacing. There's a carbonation party goin' on.

S= lemony and spicy (pepper) with a lot of floral character.

T= same as the smell. The aftertase is nicely bitter. There is not an overpowering alchohol taste as I would have expected for 9.0 ABV. But I guess that's not very high anyway.

M= medium-light. As the carbonation dissapated it got a little solventy, but not objectionable.

Overall, pretty straight forward. Not the most complex belgian style I have had but nice and tasty none the less.

One of the first beers that introduced me to the Belgian style. It is one of the best looking beers in the glass, with a bright yellowish orange color and a nice thick head on top. It smells potently of orange, yeast and spices. It has a sharp bite to it which is cooled by the flavors of the beer. Although I have branched out to other true Belgians, this is one of my favorite beers and I can't help but keep it in my regular rotation at the bar.
