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.

Hazy orange. Small white head. Smell is fantastic; belgian yeast esters throwing out sweet banana aromas, maybe some funky apple and a hint of orange. This tastes sweet, banana like and just a hint of booze. Highly carbonated, and a warming sensation from the alcohol. This is an outstanding tripel.

Appearance - The head on this beer is almost impossible to contain. Retention is oaky, with hardly any lace. Pale straw colored (almost like a wit), with suspended yeast visible in the beer.

Smell - Chalky or dry yeast smell followed with light spicy aroma.

Taste - Some dried fruit flavor, with crisp spices. The beer is actually pretty dry, and the hops seem to play this up. The alcohol is almost undetectable.

Mouthfeel - Quite fizzy, which adds to the delight. Pretty smooth overall, with a little tang to mix things up.

Drinkability - This is a beer that feels good to drink. I expected a hard hit in the back of the throat due to the carbonation, but it goes down quite easily.

Comments - Pretty to look at, tastes great, likely to help you pick up chicks... What more could you possibly want? Seriously, this is a very good beer. This should be on every beer lovers must-have list.

This particular bottle of beer is about 1.5 years old.

Appearance – Pours a hazy golden yellow which nice amount of meringue head. The head falls a touch but then retains nicely leaving solid amounts of lacing. This beer is nearly picture perfect in my Fin Du Monde glass.

Smell – This beer is extremely strong of citrus of front. There are peppery aromas as well as some yeast and clove. Hops are present too with nice sugar sweetness. Smells very appealing.

Taste – Up front this beer is very sweet and packed with malty goodness. The yeast and pepper which I was expecting are present as well. It is somewhat tart but finishes with a wonderful sweet citrus flavor. Just plain great.

Mouthfeel – The carbonation was barely noticeable and the beer was nice and creamy. Bang on here.

Drinkability – Nothing to say except that it is so freakin smooth.

Among my favorites. La Fin Du Monde never disappoints me when I’m thirsty for an outstanding beer.

This triple malt beer is one of my favourite beer from Unibroue Brewer.

With it's 9.0% ABV, this beer doesn't feel like a strong beer.

The taste has its own distinctive taste and I like this particular taste. It is part of the taste I like from Unibroue.

The way you open the big bottle is also interesting.

I have enjoyed this one since the beginning, and will probably continue to do so.

Way to go Unibroue.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Light yellow color with a big, billowy white head. Lots of small carbonation bubbles form a tornado effect in the glass. Lacing is sudsy and head retention is one of the best I've seen.

Smell: A sweet, flowery yeast aroma is very apparent. Some lemon notes and pepper are also present.

Taste: Sweet but with a flowery spice and some alcohol kick. A fruity quality about it, but balanced with a pepper taste.

Mouthfeel: Light and bubbly.

Drinkability: Oh so good and it makes me feel good.
