Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
La Fin du Monde was developed through 18 months of research on a unique strain of yeast originating from Europe. It is brewed in honor of the intrepid European explorers who believed they had reached the “end of the world” when they discovered North America ‘the new world’. This triple-style golden ale recreates the style of beer originally developed in the Middle Ages by trappist monks for special occasions and as such it was the first of its kind to be brewed in North America.

I am biased as I am not big fan of belgium ales. I had high hopes for this as had in french restaurant with great glass. Beer looked good but taste was typical Belgium. Thus, not a fan but again i dont care for the style going into drinking it

Currently ranked third in all of Canada, will this one make even the end of the world seem great...let's find out shall we. Poured into a tulip class from the less popular 341mL bottle over the larger true brainbuster, this one is a true tripel with massive collar and extreme effervescence just the way I like it with soft golden hues with only slight opaqueness - grand. Smells as a tripel should - grassy hops but far subtler than many triples so it eases you in to it's embrace. The taste evolves over time. The longer you go, the softer and fruitier the taste. Enjoy in soft pear, apple balanced with malts and slight spice - a truly balanced yet complex range here. Finishes exceptionally smooth with a low ABU of 18 but don't forget a 9.0 on the Richter Scale. At 10 dollars for 4 I find this a steal. Time for some U2 so you can talk to me "about the end of the world"....

Just Wow. Enjoyed a 750 mL bottle on 2 visits to Le Café de la Brûlerie in Granby QC. Really really nice, may be a bit high on the alcohol content for some but otherwise a totally satisfying experience.

To my way of thinking, 9% ABV is a double as much as it’s a triple. The ‘spices’ are a lot like your standard Saison. So I’m inclined to call it a double saison. But it’s pretty darn good anyway!

This is it. The winner. The holy grail of beer. A perfectly spiced Belgian that is smooth and sweet. This is as good as beer can get it. One of only 2 religious experiences I've ever had when drinking a beer. Enjoy it, this is the End of the World.
