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.

A year and a half old bottle with a BB date of 03-30-13 although Unibroue advises this beer to be at its best after 3 years.
A-Poured into a chalice this brew yields a thick finger of small bubbled white foam that is fairly weak with no lacing on the glass , lots of effervescence-blonde with a golden hue with just a slight haze.
S-At about 40 F, strong aromas of clover and floral honey and spicy phenols jump out. Clean malt nose.
T-Nice layers of complexity, starting with estery yeast with fruity sweet orange character, carried with a clean heavy barley malt bill gives into spicy phenols, providing a long finish with a pleasant alcohol warming. As the beer warms, the sweet honey character becomes more prominent
M-Mouthfeel has high levels of carbonation, rich bodied with a warming finish.
O-A very robust and tasty brew indeed.
