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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle (bbd 12/20/14) into a snifter, pours a slightly orange golden blonde with a large white head that quickly dissipates leaving some lacing, quite cloudy

S: yeast, fresh baked bread, biscuit, slight coriander, banana, vanilla

T: slightly acidic sweet and sour, flavors of strawberry, orange, mango, biscuit, like a liquefied fruit scone, amazing

M: rich creamy and oily, lively carbonation, alcohol well hidden

O: I'm confused because this has a screw top and is made in Canada. This however isn't hockey swill. Every bit as good as Tripels from Belgium.

Absolutely one of my favorite beers!! honestly can go good with anything, but you are better off enjoying this beer by itself. it has so much too offer, such great combination between the yeast and malt's making this an outstanding brew. you can put this on my list of top beers.

750ml corked and caged bottle. Most recent vintage into a Westvleteren chalice. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a .5 finger coarse white head with poor retention. Beer is a clear goldenrod. Lacing is non-existent. Thin legs. Pretty average.

Nose is clove, Belgian yeast, pepper, pineapple and cane sugar. Very sweet and aromatic. Appetizing!

Opens coriander and other Belgian spices. Banana with peppercorn, clove and Belgian yeast in the middle. Sweet cane sugar towards the end with more clove and yeastiness. Finishes sweet with a foamy, accented aftertaste that lingers. Really fits the style.

Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and abrasive and crisp going down. Finishes messy with a slightly lingering finish. Crisp and complex. Nice.

Not the best of the style but definitely a complex and enjoyable brew that I wouldn't hesitate to revisit. Nice body with a signature Unibroue flavor profile. Worth trying.
