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 into a Dogfish signature snifter. Back label says best before 12-13-14.

A- Pours a hazy amber color with a 3/4 inch white head that fizzes away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and light spacks of surface foam. Lacing that falls quickly down the glass.

S- Full Belgian yeast aroma with an effervescent backing and tropical fruit notes of pineapple, papaya and some mango. Sweet-smelling plus some herbal spiciness.

T- Belgian yeast is the main player providing plenty of banana and spice notes plus a slightly chalky element. Wheat flavor also prevails and brings a fullness to the overall profile. Alcohol is extremely well-hidden.

M- Bright and a bit prickly from the spice/yeast combo. Medium carbonation and a relatively light body.

O- One of my favorite tripels and definitely the best Unibroue beer IMO. It never gets old to drink.

Pours a translucent pale-yellow. Aromas of the classic Unibroue yeast dominate. Taste is slightly sweet with hints of orange zest, a medium body and slightly crisp finish. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth.

A slightly above-average tripel with Unibroue's signature qualities throughout.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy gold. Head is bright-white, starts off bubbly and massive. Head dwindles to a spotty, bubbly cap and collar. Lively carbonation.

Smell: Banana and pineapple. Loads of canned pineapple. Unibroue yeast adds its typical compliment of spicy esters, ripe banana, and bubblegum. Some minor. Love notes. Incredibly fruity. Sweet pale malts. Banana bread. Peppery spiciness.

Taste: Unibroue yeast kicks in immediately. Big banana bubblegum. Mild backing spiciness. Sweet pale malts bring some bready elements to the party. Peppery spiciness. As it warms the yeast becomes aggressive and overbearing. Huge punches of pineapple and banana. Spiciness builds becoming sharply peppered. Sweet, incredibly sweet by the end. Cracker and bread crust.

Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation on a body that runs toward light but ultimately end up medium. Nicely dry. Slightly smooth.

Overall: You want Unibroue yeast, this is the starter itself!

The first sip is delicious. As it warms, any balance it could have goes out the window. Sweet, but not sugary. If you love the style, it's definitely worth checking out.
