BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

Style: Belgian 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.

Uncorked a "best by 2/27/21" bottle and poured into a St. Bernardus goblet, 2 1/2 servings in the bottle.

Dark amber/gold color with a thick dark tan head, that quickly turned to lace, and good carbonation.

Smelled like a freshly baked fruit bread; yeasty, fruity (apple, pear, plum, raisin...), spicy (nutmeg, sugar, clove), with a little lemon & orange zest.

Tasted like it smelled with the addition of a multi-note malt. Feels full in your mouth and almost too sweet before the citrus kicks in and cleans everything up with a dryish finish.

This is a complex beer meant for savoring rather than quenching your thirst (although it will do that).

Possibly the best North American tripel and probably the best widely available tripel.

Its a bit hazy golden color, fluffy white foam that lasts and leave serious lacing. Smells like Belgian yeast, and doughy malts, all the normal fruit and spice character Belgian yeast should bring to a beer. Strong traditional Belgian flavor without the off flavors. Highly carbonated and a bit dry on the finish. Best Belgian style beers outside Belgium.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Opaque, hazy golden hue with a very thick, creamy head with great retention and lacing.

Aroma: Yeast, fruit esters, and wheat upfront. Notes of banana, cloves, nectarine, nutmeg, spices, lemon rind, honey, apple, and pear.

Notes of yeast, banana, lemon rind, pear, sugar, and honey are upfront, followed by much of the aromatic notes mentioned. Many sweet flavors present, however, and importantly, I believe the honey and lemon rind really help balance the palette by adding smoothness and zest for an overall good composition. Moderate-high carbonation, really smooth head and feel.

Probably my favorite beer, but points off because the bottle conditioning makes it a bit too carbonated for my taste.

Beautiful Belgian triple. Unibroue does these classic styles so well. These bottles tend to be crazy carbonated, I'm guessing due to the bottle conditioning.

Hazy light amber with a big white frothy head; a good rich aroma, a little bready; Smooth mouthfeel, moderate carbonation; Mild flavor, nice, tasty, easy drinking. Only the slightest hint of its 9% ABV.

This is a unique beer that stands out from other Belgians. A hazy gold gray hue with creamy head that lingers a bit. It’s boozy, spicy, and has clear tropical notes of mango or guava, maybe even marshmallow. An unusual and complex flavor profile. Definitely get grainy yeasty flavors too. Peppery on the tongue and good body. It grows on you. Drank right after a Duvel, which is n incomparable beer, but this is a great one too.
