Style: 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.

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.

Poured hazy honey colored with a nice thick head that never fully dissapated and left a little bit of lacing.

Yeasty and fruity, fermented apples being the dominant aroma.

Taste is fruity and pretty sweet, also pick up the spices as well as the malt.

Feel is medium, very good carbonation, smooth.

Overall, really impressed with this tripel. I admittedly don't drink a whole lot of Belgian styles, but I'd probably drink more if they were more like this

L - Hazy, opaque golden, with a thick, creamy, frothy very light tan/off-white head that sticks around and leaves some lacing behind. A fantastic looking triple.
S - Yeast and malt with fruit esters intermixed along with wheat. The smell is pretty faint though.
T - Follows the nose, with yeast and malt up front followed by fruit esters and spices - banana, clove, honey, pear, apple, etc. Sweet finish - but not too sweet.
F - Medium body with a medium to high amount of carbonation - still smooth and crisp
O - This is a really fantastic Belgian Triple. It literally checks off all the boxes a triple should in terms of appearance, taste, and feel. I only wish the smell was stronger, but that's really splitting hairs on such a fantastic, textbook triple.
