4.75/5  rDev +10%

Pours a hazy yellow with two fingers of light fluffy head that lingers.

Nose has pepper, spice, the Unibroue characteristic yeast, banana, cloves.

Taste follows nose. Powerful beer! Finishes dry.

The beer has multiple layers and is a real experience. One of the best available from Canada.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: [4.00] The beer is straw yellow with a 1 finger white head. The bubbles on the head are tight but dissipate quickly. Even after the head is gone there is great coating and lacing on the glass. The bottle lists the ABV (9.0%) and the best by date (not sure if it is April 12 or Dec 4th 2016)

S: [3.00] Wheat and yeast. Some alcohol.

T: [4.00] Out of the fridge - very typical Belgian wheat flavor. There is a wheat and yeast flavor and not much else. There is a slight taste of alcohol - it is not completely hidden. As the beer warms the sweetness of the malt comes out. The wheat and yeast flavors subside there are hints of bubble gum and banana. It becomes much more enjoyable. It is a totally different beer when it is warm. Really desirable.

M: [3.75] Nice carbonation level - feels rich on the tongue.

O: [3.75] Out of the gate this was a typical yeasty mess. But as it warmed the body and flavor came out. It was really enjoyable. I'd like to age a few of these and see how they change. This is a really good brew. The alcohol isn't totally hidden - but that is okay. The taste migrates away from the wheat/yeast bomb and has complex tones of banana and bubble gum.

The world ending !! wait what ? (la fin du monde) beer review.
the look of it. typical to the Uniboue. Nice orange light golden color. Lots of carbonation.
The smell of it, Really nice you can compare to the blanche of the Chambly but with more rust on it. Very pleasant. Its strong but at he same smooth on the nose.
Now the taste of it. Fantastic, no word to that. On the right temperature with that right glasse, its fabulous. Its a peace of art. You don t drink that beer like a regular Budweiser or Molson or Coors. It as flavour, goes down so easily. Its wonderful. This is one of my favorite beer and will stays forever like that.
So overall would I recommend it ? You know it and you know my answer. You have to give it a try at least once in your life. This is a beer on the top really hard to fins an other like this one. That rust and that burn due to that 9% ABV is to present for me but still what a beer man !

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a chalice from a 750. Best before 5/10/17.

Color is light hazy gold with a one finger white head. Good retention and lacing.
Smell is yeast, cloves, medicinal in a good way. Some light fruits.
Flavor is big for a tripel. - sweet, spicy and fruity. Hides the ABV well. Builds to a cider like flavor before finishing with a mild hop bitterness. Really nice.
Body is light and smooth with moderate to high carbonation.

Overall, a really good tripel. I've had the fortune of trying several tripels while in Belgium, and this ranks up there with the best of them.

This one of the worst beers I have ever tasted. But after looking at the reviews, I'm thinking I may have had a bad batch.

An excellent example of trappist. The real champagne of beer. Everything these guys brew is worth drinking

Light as a dream; as if life were serene. Tender Belgian yeasts like s first kiss (as if you'd ever forget). Light and airy, Lindbergh-esqe almost scary. So nice, so real, so very dry and ideal.

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 3/28/2017. Pours lightly hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, apricot, pineapple, orange peel, banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, candi sugar, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Incredible complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, apricot, pineapple, orange zest, banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, candi sugar, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon. pear, apple, apricot, pineapple, orange zest, banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, candi sugar, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Insane complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a pretty much perfect yeast/spice/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly prickly/dry mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a world class tripel style. All around insane complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. An absolutely amazing offering.

Pours a hazy deep straw color. Smells sweet, earthy, yeasty, spicy, and aromatic. The flavors in this beer are so well balanced and the alcohol is so well hidden. Strong wheat flavors and sweet belgian candy sugars are cut by an overall fruity dryness in the beer. The carbonation is strong. I cannot express how easy and enjoyable this beer is to drink.

Enjoyed from a growler, this fine tripel from Unibroue pours a yellow straw like color with a moderate white bubbled head of quickly dissipating bubbles that leaves a fine ring of foam. The lacing is very light in growler form as compared to the bottle. Nose of apples, light white pepper, coriander, and sweet Belgian candy sugars. Flavors are up front sweet candy sugar to the front and sides, light tartness of apple to the back, with a hint of white pepper and coriander in the aftertaste. Light and crisp mouthfeel with moderate syrupy characteristics. A fantastic Belgian style tripel brewed by our friends to the north.
Most excellent.
Cheers!

Got this quite a few times. Perfect tripel. Strong alc level, yet taste completely hidden. Fruity in taste, and gorgeous in color.

I was introduced to Unibroue on my first visit to Montreal in 2012. La Fin Du Monde is a fine example of what they have to offer. This is a heavier, strong beer yet very smooth to drink. It has a complex flavour which is difficult for me to describe.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a medium white lasting fluffy head. mild lacing. Aroma is of sweet spicy fruit, Belgian yeast, some notes of citrus and banana, some biscuit malt as well. Taste is same as aroma with a good spiced hops bitterness. A medium body, with lively carbonation, almost champagne like. The finish is a combination of sweet spiced fruit, Belgian yeast, biscuit malt with spicy hops bitterness on the end for balance. This brew has some nice champagne like effervescence. Overall a very good, delightful, and tasty brew. very nice.

This is great beer.

I really wished i had reached for this instead of Molson XXX on my Senior class trip to Montreal in '99. I had a Molson XXX and swore i'd never have another "Gasoline and piss frenchie beer" for the rest of my life.

It's almost sessionable at 9% in my opinion. The aftertaste is hanging around a bit much, and there's a warming in my far lower abdomen, but other than that this goes down EXCEPTIONALLY smooth.
