Finally had one. Great Belgian flavors. Enjoyed the aroma and taste was excellent from start to finish. KO'd me as I had the big 25.6 oz bottle. Will make sure to occaisionally have again.

Pours a clouded straw color, left a two or three inch white head that receded quickly, but left thick lacing everywhere.

Smells floral, coriander notes.

Tastes of nutmeg of upfront which slides into coriander then has a malty finish.
Almost no bitterness, smooth, the alcohol is imperceptible.

Medium body, medium-light carbonation, a really delicious spiced beer.

La Fin Du Monde is "The End of the World" in French.

12 oz bottle Served at cellar temp around 55F in a wine glass.

A: Golden color, slightly cloudy, large head, gong retention and sticky lacing.

S: Pleasant fruit and spice aromas of banana, cloves, no one aroma is overpowering. Very enjoyable aroma. Much less coriander aroma than in most triples, the banana and cloves aromas are also subdued.

T: Begins with pleasant sweet malt, middle is fruit esters from Belgian yeast, finishes with a slight warming and mild bitter finish with spices lingering for a slightly dry finish. ABV well hidden. Flavors increase as it warms.

M: Medium body, very high carbonation - but not too high for the style.

O: An everyday Tripel. Very good, very drinkable, abv hidden very well. My go to Tripel. Very affordable for the style. Not as complex or interesting as some Trappist ales from Belgium - this one is made by everyday brewers, not by monks, but this is very good and about the same price as a "premium domestic". Definitely my favorite Tripel in this price point and I like the simplicity of it.

These are bottle conditioned with high abv so could be cellar-ed. Weather they improve with age is unknown to me although the Unibroue website claims its best after 3 years in the cellar.
