Brown with gold hints, and a pleasing aroma of yeast and citrus fruit. It strikes a great balance between fruit and yeast flavors too, along with some sweet floral notes. Quite carbonated, with no overpowering alcohol flavors. Refreshing enough to be consumed in hot weather, yet warming enough to be consumed in the winer. Well done!

This ale pours out a hazy copper color with a huge white head that laces and retains quite well.
The aroma is yeasty, fruity and has a slight amount oh hop presence.
The flavor begins very fruity and then gives off a strong clove flavor followed by yeast and more fruit. I detect apples mixed with black cherries. There is also a slight hop presence near the finish.
Mouth feel is medium in body and actively carbonated.

12oz. Bottle poured into a wide pint mug. Wonderful color of orange, smelling of wheat, citrus and a bit of spice. Definitely a top five or ten beer for me. The head dissipates fairly quickly. Mouthfeel is very nice and smooth and very drinkable for the abv. I've exposed many a Blue Moon honk to this wonderful beer, I say that because that's what most tell me when I have them taste La Fin Du Monde. No orange needed, the wonderful all natural citrus taste comes standard.

A slow pour into my snifter rewards me with a finger of effervescent head. This is gone in a little under a minute, leaving just some bubbles and a thin ring. Lacing tries to cling to the glass, but like a 70 year old man without a blue pill, it just doesn't stay up.

First whiff is lightly sour apple. A hint of clove, some grapes, yeast and banana follow. Digging deeper reveals coriander with the cloves.

Yeast and a hint of wheat are very apparent at the start. Hints of grape follows and transitions into banana. Light hay, clove and coriander finish her off. It takes many sips to find all flavors, this is a very complex brew.

Very strong carbonation up front. The body is light-medium. Ending is lightly bitter.

Imbibed on tap at Good Karma on 12/14/12.

Pours a straw color, very slightly opaque, with a thin white head with no lacing. Aroma starts with sweet white bread with allspice, cinnamon, and clove. Surprisingly lacking in the banana category. The taste is very white bready at the base with strong spices as listed above, some candied sugar, and the ever recognizable noble hops sugary nectar. The feel is very balanced win a super dry finish. Even though I think that the finish is too dry, it completely covers the 9% ABV. Remarkable beer.

This hits all the notes of the Tripel style and strikes a chord with your taste buds. It's classic and the standard, Belgian born or not.
