look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

4.47/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a large off white head. Head is long lasting and leaves distinct rings of lace on the glass.

S- Sweet fruits, apple, clove, spice, floral and alcohol notes are present.

T- Sweet apple followed by a clove and pepper bite. Slight bitterness of hops follows and this finishes out with a warming sensation of the alcohol. Nicely balanced very complex in character and taste, lots of subtleness to this one.

M- Smooth and creamy. Medium in body and well carbonated. Finish has a little kick of the carbonation as well as a slight hop bite and dryness.

D- Way too drinkable for 9% ABV. Well balanced and well done.

Sip this not only for the subtle flavors but also out of respect for the potency.

It's taken me long enough to get around to this one and I'm glad I did! This one poured a nice light golden color with a slight haze and great carbonation bubbles. The head was very thick and frothy and managed to stay around till the last sip. The smell was very fruity and spicy due to the belgian yeast. The taste was outstanding with large pinapple notes and peppery spice mixed with a near perfect carbonation level that made for a great experience. If you are a fan of Belgian beers this one is defiantly worth a try!

3.8/5  rDev -12%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a: two fingers of bubbly long-lasting fluffy white head sits on a cloudy rust colored body; gorgeous

s: sweet sugar is the first to hit the nose followed by scents of pears and apples followed by spices and just a hint of alcohol

t: a lot dryer than i would have thought; raw wheat and grains is predominant followed by some cidery/vinegary fruit flavors; winter spices and alcohol round out the taste.

m: pretty creamy and a little syrupy with light carb

d: for me this is not the most flavorful tripel but still a very good offering with some interesting and complex flavors

Thanks to Wasatch for this extra!

Pours a hazy golden orange-yellow with a big frothy off-white head. Smells of grains and tart fruits. Citrusy nose deepens with complex spice notes. Taste is herbal and fruity, with a light crispness flavored with spice and yeasty fruitiness. Very clean taste, lightly sweet, full flavored yet mild. Fruits decay to a nice yeasty aftertaste. Medium body and smooth on the palate. Soft full carbonation lends a creamy, slightly crisp feel. I'm a little scared of how drinkable this is. Watch out for the 9%abv. Overall a great tasting very drinkable version of the style. Not too strong in any sense of taste or smell.

4.33/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The End of the World pours forth a cloudy gold in color with a peachy copper glow when backlit. The white head falls rapidly leaving little lacing behind.

The aroma is very yeasty combined with various fruits such as apple and pear with perhaps peach and very mellow citrus.

The flavor has the same yeasty breadiness noted in the aroma with mellow golden fruits, (pear, apple, star fruit, peach). Alcohol is present and strong but very muted and well woven into the flavor profile. Warming only enhances the muted mellow golden fruit tones of this beer.

Mouthfeel is lush, medium, somewhat chalky and well carbonated, but very smooth in it's finish.

If the End of the World ever does come I can only hope it is accompanied by copious amounts of this beer!

12 oz bottle that needs to be consumed before 5/7/07. I bought a four pack and plan on drinking them about 5 months apart in order to compare the flavors. Poured into a pint glass

A—cloudy golden pale yellow, 1 ½ inch head that leaves a nice lacing as it dissipates

S—fruity with a little touch of vanilla and some peppery tones; a little bit of banana as well

T—marvelous! Sweet with nice malt/yeast flavor. A little vanilla aftertaste taste as well

M—smooth and mellow, the carbonation is very present, but not over powering.

D—It will be a challenge to wait to drink the other 3….I love this beer and want to drink all four right now.
