BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

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.

12 oz. bottle into a snifter.
Pours gold orange color. Cloudy. Abundant froth quickly disappears, leaving only little lacing on glass.
Divine smell of yeasts and spices.
Full-bodied mouthfeel: flavor typical of Belgian Abbey beers (In my somewhat limited experience, Unibroue is the closest you can get to an authentic Belgian ale in the Nouveau Monde). This ''End of the World'' is a perfect 'authentic' Belgian Trippel.
Strong (9% ABV), sweet -- but not without some understated bitterness (20 IBU) and the usual spices.

A well established masterpiece. Also on draught in most Lowlands group cafés.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a small chalice: color is hazy copper, head is brighter white with fine bubbles and presents about 1/2 inch thick and then dissipates to thin top with some spotty lacing.

Smell is light fruitiness, some yeast, light phenol and clove.

Taste is very good with pleasant light citrus and tropical fruit flavor, flavor then transitions to blend of light malt with biscuit and wheat notable, yeast with phenols and dryness, almost some weizen like flavors. Strength hidden very well by the flavor profile.

Mouthfeel is a highlight of this beer - pleasant with moderate carbonation, light sweetness and just enough dryness - nothing to detract.

Overall a great beer with slightly different take on than some other with a lighter presence with some softer malts; incredible flavor without the abv presence.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look: Very rich and vibrant orange color with about an inch of head.
Smell: Has a sweet, fruity smell with a hint of spice that's not overpowering, but there.
Taste: The fruit and the sweetness are very dominant. It's 9% ABV and that's very noticeable and nice.
Feel: Has a very rich and creamy feel. Just the right about of carbonation.
Overall: It's really great triple. Recommended!

Though I prefer something hoppier/fuller, this was a good beer. It did not hide the alcohol very well, but that wasn't necessarily a downside - more of a preference thing. In summary, it was a little on the expensive side for my preferences but a good, low-IBU beer and may be a good one to throw in a mix pack from time to time.

Look, light hazy gold with creamy head.
Smell, banana and spice.
Taste, jackfruit with pepperish spice
Feel, like cheesecake, but I'm liking it, a lot. Warm stomach feel. or YUM!
I love a Triple, but this is not as hoppy as I am used to. This is a wonderful beverage. I am very glad I got it and found it in a corner at my grocer. I probably could not drink a lot of these. Rich and alcoholic. I'd get sleepy.
i would highly recommend this beer.

My second favorite beer in the Belgium Tripel style and much more broadly available than my number 1 choice.

IBU 19. Good tasting beer but the smell is not too pleasant. A light strong tasting beer, goes down smoothly with little aftertaste. Overall OK beer.
