A - Nice hazy golden orange.

S - Nice lemony smell.

T - Depending on my mood, it seems, I either love this beer or feel it's just pretty good. Usually, i love it. (As I do tonight.) Bold, well balanced, between flavors and abv.

M - Always easy to drink, going down nicely.

O - A high quality beer that never disappoints and that all craft beer lovers should try.

750 ML corked and caged bottle.

A large white head atop a cloudy bronze greeted me after the pour. A little less than half-finger of head stuck around throughout the first snifter, but I got only minimal lacing with the second pour. I can easily smell sweet fruit, clove and malts even though I have a bit of a cold. Banana flavors among other fruity esters accent the spices, clove and malts nicely for a sweet, yeasty taste that finishes dry, but not too dry with a touch of warming alcohol.

It's the end of the world as we know it et je me sens très bien!

A: Pours a hazy orange/yellow body with a decent frothy white head that recedes quickly to a ring around the glass.

S: Smells amazing... A big nose of spices (clove, cinnamon, & pepper), tropical fruit (pinapple, banana), a bit of yeast, & a hint of citrus.

T: Initial flavor is an explosion of spices- pepper, clove, cinnamon- followed by a burst of fruity flavors, yeast, & grainy malts. Not really picking up on any warmth from the high abv because the extreme flavors cover it very well. Extremely well balanced.

M: Smooth and creamy texture, although a bit sticky, medium carbonation, and medium body.

D: Love this beer. Dad bought it for me at World of Beer in Lake Mary, FL, and it was love at first sip. I love the prickly sensation on the tongue and the massive amount of flavor on the palate. Easy to drink, definitely a sipper, but could drink this all night.

Was able to pick up a four pack instead of the bombers which are typically offered. Sampled this on a few separate nights and had a couple tonight before, during, and after dinner. I'm a fan of Unibroue's darker Belgian Styles but this is an excellent Tripel and quite possibly my new favorite of their brews. Strong malty aroma with a nice earthiness and spicy accents. Great pour, orange-yellow dark in the middle and lighter around the edges with a monster of a head. This beer couldn't be smoother and a pleasant finish with a slight alcohol burn is perfect for me. Hearty flavor huge malt presence with some spicy goodness. Slight citrus tops off a marvelous brew. Overall this is near the top on my list.

Dated: Doesn't make sence with with Unibroue says.
From LCBO, 750ml

G: Chalie

A: Hazy yellow-orange body with two fingers of white fluffy head. Moderate retention, dissipated into a thin head and leaves good lacing. Typical for the style - with the yeast mixed.

S: Citrus, yeast, wheat and banana. Great mix of flavours, all are pleasant and distinct.

T: Citrus and the wheat/yeast mixture are the most prominent. Banana and cloves follow along. Great taste, and no sense of alcohol.

M: Medium bodied and high carbonation. A very foamy texture in the mouth and leaves a sticky yeast presence. Odd aftertastes, but it goes well with the beer.

D: I'm not a huge fan of the style, but I can appreciate it. It's amazing for what it is and at an excellent price point.

This is a great one !
Poured out a hazy , slightly orange gold...a very active head ( it was bubbling out of the neck ).Head settles down to a collar in a Duvel chalice.
Smells very fruity with some clove and yeast...really nice.
Taste is fantastic...especially as it warms up...very complex..must be every tangy fruit flavor I've ever had blended into this..balanced very well with clove, alcohol, sugar and hops.
Mouthfeel is light-medium with a pretty smooth, velvety, micro carbonation. Great.
Very drinkable...another amazing Unibroue...boy , can they make beer!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: A thoroughly hazy golden-orange body capped by a mountain of fluffy white head that recedes slowly and leaves great lacing. Certainly a Belgian looking beer.

Aroma: Cloves, floral perfume, juicy citrus, golden fruit, grainy malt, Belgian yeast, and medium alcohol.

Flavor: A mix of golden fruit, pepper, mild hops, and medium alcohol character over sweet wheat-like pale malt. Everything is nicely balanced. Golden fruit, grainy malt, and mild booze in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied and creamy with medium-high carbonation and a dry finish. Some nice heat from the alcohol.

Drinkability: Surprisingly drinkable, this goes back quicker than the ABV would lead you to believe.

Verdict: A thoroughly satisfying experience, La Fin du Monde is complex, delicate, and well balanced. Who knew the Canadians were crafting such great Belgian beers this whole time?

750ml bottle. Pours a orange/yellow golden clear colour. Incredibly easy to drink. This is 9%? Seriously? No hint of the alc.% at all. Very solid beer all around. Definately a fruity taste to the after taste. Very nice beer from Canada.

A - Pours a cloudy gold with a two-finger foamy white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving some light lacing.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - An awesome Tripel. Very delicious and extremely drinkable.

Pours a pale-straw color with tons of medium sized bubbles that float up to the huge, pure white, frothy head. Appearance is wonderful and does have nice rings of wispy lace and good head retention. Fruity, cider-like aroma with pepper and yeast. Medium bodied and very smooth on the palate. Starts with a sweet maltiness that makes way for clove and peppery flavors. Very complex, finishes slightly dry with some hop flavor. The alcohol is hidden very well, almost too well as after a few bottles of this tasty treat you won't be able to stand.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a thick creamy smooth off white head.
lots of champange like carbonation. Not much lace.

Aroma is fruity, yeasty, bready, orangy.

Flavor is citrusy, spicy,fruity, with a little bit of hops on the end. warming alcohol.

Champange like mouthfeel, bubbly but with a creamy quality to the finish.
