3.8/5 rDev -12%
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

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!

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.

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
Acloudy golden pale yellow, 1 ½ inch head that leaves a nice lacing as it dissipates
Sfruity with a little touch of vanilla and some peppery tones; a little bit of banana as well
Tmarvelous! Sweet with nice malt/yeast flavor. A little vanilla aftertaste taste as well
Msmooth and mellow, the carbonation is very present, but not over powering.
DIt will be a challenge to wait to drink the other 3 .I love this beer and want to drink all four right now.

Before I start this review, a big THANKS to my sister and brother-in-law for this sampling.
750 ml bottle that is corked and caged
Appearance: Cloudy, golden in color, with a full white head that holds well
Smell: Light sweet citrus fruit and spice aroma
Taste/Mouthfeel: Taste same as smell, spicy sweet fruity and yeasty. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with good carbonation.
Drinkability: This is a MUST try for Belgian Strong Pale Ale lovers! It leaves you wanting another.
La Fin Du Monde goes well with fish and chips, although, I think it would go well with anything. This brew sure lives up to its reputation Canadians have a winner here.

A: Pours a cloudy golden color with less than a finger of white head. Slight amount of lacing on the drinking side. Persistent foamy cap that's nearly as thick as the original head.
S: Yeast, citrus, bread. Yeast seems to have a spicy character to it. Maybe some banana here.
T: Mostly lemon citrus, mildly spicy yeast, biscuit, bready. Very tasty.
M: Has an almost creamy body with slight alcohol warming.
O: Granted, I don't have extensive experience with triples, but I like this a lot. All of the flavors are very well balanced and the alcohol is mild, providing only a warming effect. I'll drink this again for sure.

750 ml bottle served in a goblet, reviewed live:
A - Pours a murky straw/honey golden color with a thin, 1 finger head. Retention is pretty poor, but excusable for the high abv.
S - Strong pale and crystal malt foundation gives way to honey, banana, clove, and citrus esters. Very pleasant and inviting.
T - Lemon, clove, unidentified spice, honey and pale malt meddle nicely. It's complex and subtle. The alcohol comes through on the finish, but it fit's and isn't overbearing. Very well built. Reminds of wheat with Belgian yeast.
M - Light and carbonated well. This ain't your ordinary tripel.
D - I'm impressed by this one. It's subtly complex, and easy drinking to boot. For the price and quality it'd be hard to better.
