One of the first craft brews I enjoyed. Cloudy yellow in color with a two-finger white head that quickly disappears. It smells like banana and dried chili peppers. There's not a whole lot of funky yeast on the nose, as in more typical trippels. The taste is sweet with banana and maybe a little bit of mango flavor. There's also a spicy clove flavor and a low level of barnyard funk, but these flavors are rather low-key and it's much sweeter than your traditional dry Belgian trippel. There's huge carbonation in this beer and it has a medium body. Scarily easy to drink at 9%. It may not fit the style exactly but it is very good.

Finally saw this in the nearby LCBO, very excited to try and even more excited since 4 pack was $9.75 CDN, or close to a dollar less per bottle than the delicious Belgian Tripels. Reviewed bottle 2 of 4. Served fairly cold, but did allow for a bit of warming prior to consumption. poured into oversized wine glass.

Appearance - Hazy golden, luxurious honey brown color spills into the glass. Just enough transparency to see the outline of hand on the other side of the glass but not much else. 1.5 fingers of off-white head is poured and has excellent retention, leaving spiderwebs of lacing down the glass. It doesn't get much better than this.

Smell - Honey, sweetness, Belgian yeasty smell. Subtle spiciness and a bit of wheat. There is some booze present but smells more like a 6-7% beer than a 9% one. Caramel, molasses and candied sugar make up the other sweetness elements in the nose.

Taste - Sweetness that is delicious but not cloying, a well crafted Tripel, notes of caramel and fruit but very hard to nail down a flavor profile. Is extremely complex and the flavors actually seem to be changing the father into the glass I go. However strong enough use of hops and bitter malts to offset what would otherwise be a sweet beer so that the balance is exceptional. Booze is again subtle and a few spicy, peppery flavors at the end.

Mouthfeel - Rich, fulfilling mouthfeel, yet just simple enough that it doesn't overwhelm. Also to me was slightly light bodied, and consumption of multiple bottle would be easily possible. Medium / high and a slightly dry finish.

Overall - Delicious, well crafted tripel that may be my favorite I've had in the style. Complex enough in that it is fun to identify all the different flavors and features of the beer, but at the end of the day the most enjoyment from this beer is still generated by actually just drinking it. Should I ever be stranded on a desert island with only one beer until the end of time in an "end of the World" scenario, La Fin Du Monde is certainly one I could live with and enjoy.
