Pour produced a nicely layered range of color from light amber to pale gold. Thick fluffy almost bleach white head that retained a moderate amount. Tons of carbonation bubbles throughout the beer. Decent, if unbalanced lacing.

The first aroma hit me with a mostly malted scent. Major second scent of banana and nut. Also contained a minor subtly blend of additional aroma that is comparable to bouquet of fresh flowers.

The first taste produced a nice almond flavor with a banana aftertaste. The slight note of malt comes through in a second sip. No noticable hops flavor. Surprisingly flavored and subdued for a beer with this ABV.

Has a nice bold texture and finishes nice in my mouth. Carbonation is a little more subdued then I expected after seeing the carbonation bubbles in the beer.

A fantastic choice for a beer to enjoy with a meal. I would recommend this with any smoked seafood, as the nutty flavor would help the smoke flavor come out in the meal.

I was always a little wary of this beer because when I visited Montreal, this is the beer that most of the vagabonds drank. But upon my taste I now know that Canadian vagabonds know whats up. This beer was outstanding. The appearance was a nice hazy yellow with a smell of floral notes with some citrus behind it. The taste was great with a hint of banana to it. Loved the feel of the beer as it seemed to just be a perfect balance. Overall I think this is a great beer and would wholeheartedly recommend to people to at least give a try.

Another first impression Whoa! This brew foamed up 1/4 brew, 3/4 foam as I poured it into my glass. Its head was a very white color. The bubbles in the head ranged from small to large. Again, this is another very carbonated brew. This brew also had a very mild aroma. It too was hard for me to distinguish from other smells. It has a very light orange color with yeast particles floating in it. Its flavor contains a variety of different tastes. The carbonation once again rolls off the tongue. It is adding to my buzz tonight. I liked the flavor and taste of the brew. It agrees with me very much. All in all an excellent brew! This brew is very potent and it added to my buzz for the evening.

An intimidating name. The End Of The World, eh?

The look is impressive. Massive initial white head and cascading bubbles continue throughout. The yellow-orange coloring is a little cloudy.

Yeasty, fruity smell of oranges and honey.

Outstanding flavor of slight hops, but a nice alcohol flavor. Slightly sweet and tangy. Apricot aftertastes and orange hints.

Feel is bubbly and light.

Delicious, addictive beer. Easy to drink, impressive to look at. And you can say you are drinking the end of the world.

A:
Pours a hazy dandelion-esque yellow with a creamy, gloppy white head. Good retention; no lacing to speak of.

S:
Sweet and yeasty on the whole with strong pepper, cane sugar, and soap. Quite fresh smelling.

T:
Rich and crisp. Peppery and heavy with yeasty goodness. It finishes fresh and floral with some citrus notes and a vaguely boozy twinge.

M:
Prickly with a creamy head, it is a tad syrupy after a while but doesn't linger too bad and is pleasurable overall.

O:
Really tasty Tripel. It verges on too yeasty but that is the only thing that I can think of that is even close to wrong with it. Really enjoyable beer. Better than one would think.
Sweet but not sticky. Well-carbonated. Easy drinking. But don't be fooled she packs a wollop. Would have again. Worth finding.

The beer poured a rich old gold with a good amount of effervesence developoing a fine white head with a few tan hints in it. The aroma was of citrus, bananna, and sweet malt underneath. The taste is sweet malt with a hint of citrus and some bananna, this is followed by a blast of spice and an alcohol burn in the finish. The feel is smooth oily, and effervescent. This a wonderfully drinkable beer. A fine example of a style that goes down easily.

This is my first beer review here, so please treat me gently.
This is one of my favorite beers I've come across so far in my young beer studying life. The appearance is a cloudy golden color, with a lot of frothy white head when you first pour that soon disappears to a mere coating on top.

It smells almost cidery, definitely bubbly, lots of fruityness. Tastes better than it smells- sweet, but dry. The alcohol content doesn't overwhelm the flavors at all. Kind of champagne-esque, and definitely tasty.

Great mouthfeel, sticks around for a bit after you swallow, but no bad aftertaste or anything of that ilk. I could, and have, drank more than one of these at a time on occasion. You know it has more alcohol than your average beer, but it's sneakily hidden. A lovely beer on the whole- definitely worth checking out, as are most Unibroue beers.

Poured from a corked 750ml bottle into a goblet.

Appearance/Smell - Appears a clouded golden/straw color with a massive head and decent retention. Attractive tiny carbonation bubbles can be seen coming up the rim of the glass, and it leaves some broken & splashy lacing. Smells of a big semi sweet banana nose, hints of clove, corn husk, and orange zests. Some fruity grape & pair notes as well, and a very subtle buttery/toffee, as it warms, lots of alcoholic aroma pronounces itself well, sorta clouding most of the smell.

Taste/Mouthfeel - Tastes of a semi bright citrus note that hits the tongue first, and then washes away with a big corn husk/grainy/bisciuty flavor. Hints of banana, but not as strong as in the smell, orange zest notes seem to come between all flavors. Alcohol burn finishes this one as expected, and corn husk & banana notes seem to linger a bit. Mouthfeel has a firm bite of carbonation, along with a slightly smooth & silky feel, medium-full bodied but more so on the medium side.

Drinkability/Final thoughts - I'm not a big fan of Tripels, but I do appreciate them, this one was balanced well without being so alcoholic, overly bitey, and harsh, and the drinkability was great although the ABV is very high. I could easily put down a couple small goblets of this great brew on a cool day, I did however get a little tired of the flavors after a couple goblets, so I wouldn't really enjoy drinking anymore than that. Not much to say, if you enjoy this style than try this one, it's definitely the smoothest one Ive had so far.
