"The end of the world"

Pure gold color, almost cloudy. The elegant white head dies fast. Weak legs and no visible activity. Sweet and nicely strong floral aromas with grain and spices. Pleasant smell of malty caramel.

Perfectly fresh yet powerful taste of bitter spices. Great taste of malty fruity citrus, almost resinous. A strange feeling of caramel that is probably maple water or sirup.
It's a warming and delicious feeling. A slick medium body with a drying end and a champagne like effect.

La Fin du Monde is "Quebec's pure gold", probably a reference to its secret ingredient = Maple sirup = Quebec's "gold". This is just a theory and an opinion from someone who eat Maple sirup every weeks of the year. More bitter than the smell, still this is one of my favorite beers ever. Extremely well crafted and balanced, this is the only beer you'll ever need living through the end of the world!

I've never quite understood the fascination with this one. Cloyingly fruity, watery, and metallic.

Finally giving this one a go - previously not a huge fan of Tripel style.

Pours hazy golden with a towering head considering how gingerly I poured. Bubbly visible carbonation helps to maintain the head for quite a while. Some pretty lace. Great aroma. Strength as well as quality. More of a grainy scent with very little sweetness. Taste follows the nose. Very well balanced in all directions. No one characteristic leaps out at me. Wonderful feel. Medium-bodied with a dry, tingly finish. No discernible alcohol at all. If you're scared off by sweet bubblegum Tripels this one is for you.

I'm noticing that metallic taste as well, but it's not too off putting when the rest of the beer is quite good. A lot of carbonation in it, pours fantastically with a small amount of head.

Taste is very weak--like water.
