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.

Best by 6/13.

Pours a hazy golden apricot with a frothy half inch ivory head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of lacing.

Fruity esters leap from the glass, with tangerine, lemon, peach and pear complementing confectioners sugar sweetness. There's a yeast funk that adds intrigue to lightly bready malt. Perfumey floral hop notes tie everything together. Metallic notes emerge as it warms.

Flavor reveals sharp peach notes underlying toasted, bready malt at the backbone. Pear , apricot, and tangerine emerge, along with a bit of yeast mustiness, leading to a slightly peppery, dry finish. The fruity notes are mouth watering, but stop short.

Body is moderate, with fairly high carbonation. Alcohol warmth is slight.

Very fruity, estery beer. Powerful flavors, but they're kept from being overwhelming by the bready malt and fairly dry finish. Sweetness balances well. Would've actually preferred the flavor to linger a bit.

Bought a 4 pk of bottles from Wegmans Holt Rd on 3/23/13. price $ 10.99.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a St Bernardus chalice, served around 50 f.

appearance: hazy lemon yellow with a 1 finger sugar white head. not much lacing.

aroma: sugar cookies with lemon glaze.

mouthfeel: full, solid but a little lifeless.

taste: crystal malt with lemon zest that provides the flavor and the bitterness.

notes: Mt first Unibroue bottle and I must say I am a little disappointed. Simple taste, not bad but lacking complexity of some Tripels.
