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 best by 12-01-19 poured into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy orange with a medium large carbo release, a two finger fluffy head the slowly recedes through the glass. The aroma is of yeast, spices (coriander and pepper mainly) , and mild banana/clove. The taste follows suit, with only a slight bubblegum sweet addition to the mix. The mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is medium to medium high at the start, and mellows out as it warms. Always wanted to try this one. I like how the taste is well balanced and not quite as in your face. Recommended if you like Tripels.

I've been wanting to try this beer and I was not disappointed. Clearly the best Tripel that I've had so far. Beautifully hazy and orange tinged with a nice white head. The scent was Belgian yeast with slight spice. Where this really stands out is the flavor, there is some sweetness and the banana/clove and a wonderful spicy smooth finish. This beer has a unique distinct flavor. There's less carbonation but it's just the right amount for this brew. Creamy and smooth. This is 9%...what?? Pretty well hidden.

S- belgian yeast, coriander, fruit punch aroma as well
T- subtly sweet malt, followed by a nice fruity-ness, goes down in a unique finish that is predominantly yeast, along with the coriander

Gold yellow color with just above average carbonation. Strong pleasant aroma of yeast followed by malt,hops,and spice. Not one element overwhelms and every element is present but sort of needs to be discovered instead of it blowing up on your taste buds. A great triple that seems a step above most triples.

Appearance: It has a nice golden hue, slightly hazy, and the foam is generous.
Smell: I get a strong hops smell coming through; grassy and citrusy; as well as a hint of flowery esters.
Taste: It has a sweet yet robust and herbal taste which is lasting and extremely pleasant.
Mouthfeel: Seltzer-like and smooth feeling, an easy beer to drink despite its high alcohol content.

Overall: A fantastic Tripel. While not being overly hoppy, it manages to have a perfect balance of bready biscuity malt and sweet clove.
