It's been many a fortnight since I've enjoyed this brew last; plucked it from the wine shop shelves as the first drink of 2014. Here's to a year of gaining weight, drinking more and being less productive. La Fin Du Monde pours a dull, effervescent copper orange with fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Opaque body, not a whole lot of lace. Sweet and spicy on the nose, with notes of coriander, oranges, bready yeast and assorted citrus. One previous reviewer likened the scent to "salt sea air and steel." Sure, why not? Spices and citrus carry through to the palate in a big way. It's a complex profile that's hard to tease apart, with sweetness and spice and everything malty. Something about the moutfeel has always felt a bit off to me. Heresy, I know. My expectations for the style don't mesh well with the heaviness and aggressively carbonation. It goes down tasty but I'd be lying if I said it goes down smooth.

Had this as my last beer of 2013, and it was a good choice.
Nice golden yellow body with a clingy white lace head.
Nose is full of spices and fruits ranging from the hops to some apple and pear. There's also some clove and bubble gum somewhere in there.
Nice fruity sweet start to the taste, malty and bready at first. The hops try to break through the sweetness and banana/apple character and do so subtly. The end is a very spicy clean taste almost like crushed pepper, warms the soul. Nice champagne-like carbonation is the perfect fit on this beer and one could be fooled into thinking it was more like 4%ABV and not the 9% that it is. Super well done belgian triple.
