Unibroue

Style: Belgian Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

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.

L: gold color with creamy head
N: fruity, citrus-like scent. Lemon-y sweet scent. Fresh hop. Pine. Great scent. A little cider-like. Excellent.
T: reminds me of cider on the first sip with a saison-like feel. Rich body, fruity but not sour. Citrus, pineapple, lemon, fresh berry, guava.
F: Smooth, not dry. Great finish.
Overall: beautifully brewed, easy to drink. Slightly like, not as complex and hoppy, but a very good beer.

been on my 'to buy' list for quite a while. poured from a 12 oz into a tulip a nice orange/gold with a huge creamy head, a few sheets of sticky lacing scrape behind and a foam cap rests atop. nose is full of fruits, ranging from bananas to apples/pears and some darker fruits. bits of funky yeast follow behind and some clove like spiciness. those fruits stick on the tongue, lots of nice pear flavors on top. funk comes through a bit more but never overpowers and the spice just keeps everything else from getting too sweet. drinks wonderfully smooth, an alcohol bite becomes more prominent as it warms but never enough to slow the drinking down. nicely carbonated and medium bodied. might get a pack just to have it around for a bit.

Incredible weight. At first the taste didn't really came to me, but soon after, all the flavors and spices blends in with your tongue and you are just amazed by its body. Not my no.1 type of Triple ale but lovable. So dark.

La fin du monde, Chambly, quebec. This is my favorite, unibroue, beer. I love the smell, heavy carbonation, gorgeous lacing, 9% ABV. Be careful, this beer is so easy to drink, it could easily creep up on you. I usually have a 750 ml bottle, and I'm good, two 750 ml, and I'm close to drunk. Never drank 3, 750 ml's, I would not dare. This is by far one of my most delicious favorite beers, by Unibroue, I love the fruitiness, like apples, pears, some banana, corriander, which masks the strong alcohol. You taste a bit of hopps , but not too much, just the right flavor. I also like, Trois Pistoles, Don De Dieu. Emphemere, {apple} Uniboue, is the next best thing to Belgium Abbey Style Beers, I love Leffe, {Expensive}. Unibroue, These guys know how to brew, good beer. {period} Have one and see for yourself. If it really came down to the end of the world, This is what I would be drinking, with family and friends. { what a beautiful way to a tasteful end} Enjoy, CHEERS!

The first “craft beer” I tried, back in 1998. I shared a bomber with a university mate and we were stunned. Twenty years and god knows how many beers later and it’s still my favourite. I love a lot of beer styles — pale, IPA, sour, scotch, brown, stout, etc — but tripels will always be special to me thanks to this beauty.
