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.

33CL BOTTLE POURED INTO DUVEL GLASS.

a - hazy orange blonde glow, creamy thick 4 finger head sitting atop, brussels lace great.

S - cinnamon and spices really hit me here amongst a sublte alcohol kick, no real apparent hops or malt there, maybe a slight tart grapefruit?

T- reminescent of a high abv hefe weizen. Lots of banana and cloves, spices tingle the tongue again. A sweet alcohol kick as the aftertaste linger, very well balanced between flavours and alcohol

M- high carbonation, but very creamy

D- a fine brew but dare i say i prefer delirium tremens. This is just a touch too tart for my tongue compared to others. The beer looks great and i wouldnt knock it back, but i would take a tremens before it.

Nice hazy bright yellow-golden with ample carbonation and a finger thick whitehead.
Smells light but complex: corn, yeast, sweet spicing, citrus hint.
Tastes bitter and bubbly with a sweet ale character I enjoy, and whatever spices are used here create a fine blend.
Mouthfeel is perfect for me. Creamy and well carbonated, a bit sticky, the spice hits are very subtle on the tongue/ palette.
Great triple beer here, and I'd have liked it even more if I was a spice-in-beer kind of guy.

Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a pure white foamy head. Small bubbles jet upward for days. Sweet, fruity aromas of watermelon and bit of bubblegum, also some yeasty notes in there in well. Taste explosion - it makes my head spin trying to comprehend it. I'll have to fill in the flavors on another bottle but for now suffice it to say that it's a 5 in the taste department. The medium body is perfectly lifted with the carbonation. Along with Trois Pistoles, this is one of tbe best beers I've ever had.

This poured a golden color with cloudiness. The head was huge and persisted for several minutes. The smell is floral with a hint of coriander. The taste is floral and a bit citrus like. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with the carbonation noted. This is a nice example of the style.

Poured into a snifter; it had a thick off white head about three fingers wide that was very bubbly with some lacing as well; the body itself is a hazy light golden/brownish color and has some good carbonation going on as well. It has a strong sweet aroma with lots a citrus smells like lemons and oranges. It has a good semi crisp feel on the tip of your tongue, it smooth overall with a medium body and leaves a faint hint a residue in your mouth. Its got a clean taste that's sweet and spicy and is followed up with a semi dry aftertaste with a little bit of bitterness in it.

The End of the World arrived in my glass an orange-yellow color and held thick lacing. A great beer to look at and admire.

The smell was a foggy and floury (and yeasty) orange peel and spice, but it was too little and too far away for me..

The alcohol in the taste seemed somewhat overpowering. It diminished as I drank, but never really completely put me at ease. An orange liqueur taste felt its way through--and I thought of Grand Marnier. An ample hop finish.

The mouthfeel was really lacking for me in this otherwise
uni(brou)que brew.

This pours an awesome hazy dark golden color with a foamy and fizzy white head with brown yeast spots from the bottom of the bottle. There is lots of carbonation rising. The smell is of Mott's Cinnamon Applesauce! Lots of spices like clove are noted. Nice yeast aroma and flavor. The taste is sweet and fruity. Once again Unibroue created a beer that has no detectable alcohol flavor. The taste is so rich and full. The mouthfeel is slick and smooth. Fairly thick on the tounge but fuzzy from the carbonation. I could pound the entire 4 pack in an hour, but this is intoxicating so watch out.

I rank this just under their Don De Dieu because I love banana.
