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.

Poured from a 355 ml bottle dated 02-17-12.

Poured into a Chimay chalice a golden yellow/orange with a quickly dissipating ivory head and little to no lacing.Smells of clove, spice,and fruit. Taste the same as the smell, sweet fruit, clove, with a semi dry finish, Just a fantastic taste. Mouthfeel is smooth and very carbonated. Drinkability is a little hampered by the high ABV that is well hidden until the bottom of the glass( like I feel now drinking while reviewing). Overall a fantastic beer,although not at all like the St. Bernardus Tripel, the Corsendonk Agnus or the Chimay Tripel I have also tried.
