BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

Style: Belgian 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.

My second Unibroue, and I am hooked. I love the hazy, orange-yellow look of this beer. Someone mentioned mysterious, and I agree. The smell is intoxicating, fruity, peppery, an almost exotic spiciness. The taste is equally amazing, like a burst of flavors that go off in different directions that meld together to create a perfect balance of sweet fruitiness, bitter orange rind, and peppery spice. I want another.

Simply outstanding. I wish I could bathe in this stuff. Cloudy straw in color. Some people may knock it for being so hazy and unrefined. I personally like beer that is cloudy..it adds to the mystery. The yeast really add complexities layed upon more complexities. I am somewhat at a loss as to how to describe the taste. Others have mentioned tart apples...yeah maybe, but so much more. Each sip is a new experience. A beer that no doubt would age well. Unibroue is an expectional brewery, and this is (in my opinion) their best offering.

Tastes surprisingly like a mimosa, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Deceptively high alcohol content. I'm not a huge fan of the style, but it's clearly well made.

Cloudy, blond, with a long lasting white fluffy head. Spicy, bubbly, and slightly tangy. There is an alcohol presence that is slightly warming, but it is not overwhelming. A strong, souring, complex, lengthy aftertaste.

One of the milder-flavored offerings from this brewery. Nicely done, very smooth and drinkable.

Presentation: "La Fin Du Monde", translates to "The End of the World." The label is comprised of a god like light, or god's eye, that illuminates Quebec with a top view of the terrain. Very ominous.

Appearance: Pale/straw with a nation of bubbles that can be seen rushing to the surface. When poured a huge froth is produced that leaves behind a patchy white lace that is maintained by the rushing fizz. Nice head retention that sticks slightly to the glass.

Smell: Cider, pepper, flowers and light fruits are all present in the nose.

Taste: This brew is very smooth and sweet up-front with loads of malt mouth-feel. A warming sensation begins in the back of the tongue and turns into a spicy, almost pepper, flavour. This flavour is the 9% alcohol which cleverly camouflages itself until consumed. A very light hop flavour is left behind, with warming esters in the mouth.

Notes: Truly a potent and delicious brew with many hard to achieve complexities. Unlike other brews of this strength, this one is extremely drinkable due to its balance of alcohol and dextrins. Outstanding.
