La Fin Du MondeLa Fin Du Monde

Brewed by:
Quebec, Canada

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.

Tons of bubbles and the sounds of this Ale are striking. The label reads best by 2015! Everything indicates tremendous freshness. The color gives off a golden glow, very nice, very pretty.

The scent is fragrant and strong, clove, banana, yeast and a hint of fruity citrus.

The taste is simple...yes, simple. The banana is present, yeasty in the middle, followed by the clove but I don't get a whole lot more. The label reads "robust flavour" but I can't find it. This seems to be a basic "Triple, Golden Ale." Maybe I just don't get it or the style but this isn't something I'd try again.

A - pours a cloudy yellow gold, capped by a fast fading white creamy head. It will retain with the odd swirl.

S - huge wafting yeasty aroma, sweet bread, peach, banana, spice, very complex.

T - follows the nose, sweet bread, wild yeast, cinnamon, banana, stone fruit.

M - really high carbonation, zingy spicy mouthful.

O - wow. Tough to pick between this and karmaliet, either way this is one of my favourite beers.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a small head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is spicy bananas, cloves, coriander and pepper. Taste is a sweet-and sour medley of bananas, funky spices and coriander. Mouthfeel is alive, bubbly like champagne. Alcohol is well hidden but you still get a slight taste - nothing overbearing. Overall a great tripel and another home run from Unibroue.
