Serving Type: 750 mL Corked Bottle

A- Beautiful light Golden Apricot colour with a 1 1/2 finger soapy white head that literally doesn't move an inch. Incredible retention and a glass fully covered with silky lacing.

S- Bready and yeasty with light hints of slight sweet citrus.

T- Biscuit, yeasty flavours, and light touches of citrus and cloves. Beautiful and perfectly balanced. Nothing really sticks out as dominate, it just all flows together.

M- Silky smooth with a foamy, bubbly body, although there isn't much carbonation to be found. Easily drinkable but a hard hitting body that lays quite heavy in the stomach. Wouldn't be able to have much more than a 750 mL bottle, although I'm not sure why you would want to have more!

O- Thanks to you guys/gals here on Beer Advocate, I decided to go for a beer that I passed by without taking a second look every time I was at the Liquor store. I'm thankful that I finally picked it up! Top notch, word class beer that is easily the best example of the style that I've had.

I love this beer. The bar that I frequent for six packs usually carries La Fin Du Monde and 9/10 times I pick up a six pack, I get one of these. If you've never had one, do yourself a favor and try one. It's got a smooth taste with hints of citrus and a tiny bit of clove. It's light and drinkable but I find it to be heavy on the stomach.

This is by far my favorite beer in the whole wide world. The sweet hints of citrus and clove make this beer so tastyall year around.

I ended up just smelling this beer over and over once it hit its stride and opened up. Amazing. Just swirled it around and stuck my nose in deep into my snifter and teased my lips several times without taking a sip. Yeah this beer brought out the giddy junior high foreplay in me I thought was long gone. True Quebecois flirtatious romance.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter (BB 02-05-17 B05140903QFL)

A: Nice golden straw hue with a nice frothy head that leaves nice swaths of lacing.
S: Yeasty, earthen, and biscuit-y.
T: Not very sweet, just nice balanced flavors much like the nose. Earthy, yeasty, some nice esters and a cracker finish.
M: Smooth and foamy.
O: Deliciously strong and flavorful. A damn good tripel, that has smoothed down a bit with age.
