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.

750ml bottle poured into a pair of large snifters

Pours cloudy straw yellow with a big fluffy pale head that fades to about a quarter inch dense layer. Smell is yeasty, bananas, funk, cloves, sweetness.

Taste is crisp but sweet with nice yeasty flavors and more clove and bananas. Slight tartness to accentuate the sweetness nicely. Tartness probably helps out with the impression of crispness.

Mouthfeel is light and pleasant. Overall, this is very good. A beer that I go back to time and again. I'm very surprised I've never reviewed it.

A-Pours a hazy golden straw color. Head is fluffed and creamy. Head dies off a bit but laces very well.

S-Belgian by design. Fruited yeast notes. Light grassy Noble hop aromas. Sweet malty aroma too. Not exceptionally intense, but there lies a fair amount of complexity. A very textbook Tripel.

T-Also a bit lighter than expected. I enjoy that though, because I find many Tripels to be too yeasty and boozy. This is mellow and exciting. Grassy hops, fruity and yeast. Grains and light spice. Light bitterness. Lingering overall flavor. All-in-all quite tasty.

M-Lighter than the 9% ABV would lead you to initially believe. A bit syrupy, but the carbonation masks up the stickiness a bit. Moderately dry.

O/D-Have had this before. I can see why this is so highly regarded. One of the more drinkable Tripels I have had. Price tag is a bit steep, but its a classic. Canada does Belgium well.
