Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

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.

Picked up for about $5 at a New brunswick liquor store. Becoming a big fan of the Unibroue collection. Day before Super Bowl Sunday as everyone else went for the cheap light beers, I couldn't resist the Belgian allure. Brought this bottle home and introduced it to a tulip glass and got down to business.

A- Golden cloud with moderate bubble. foamy hat of about 1 finger or 2 lingers for less than a minute. so darkly blonde that nearly no light penetrates the glass. reminds me of Maudite of the same brewery, although not as red.

S- a very fruity nose, grapes, belgian yeast, spices, citrus and pear. again similar to Maudite but not as tart as it breaches the nostrils.

T- Fulfills the fruits captured by the nose. full bread with white grapes and citrus, maybe some apple, absolutely no bite of alcohol true a fantastic job masking the 9%. I really like how the fruit is very upfront however not overpowering or too sweet. This really makes a pint and a half easy to drink all the way to the end.

MF- Honestly could have had a tad more carbonation, just a tad though. However very crisp and complex. Tickles the tongue as the taste buds scurry to savour, detect, and breakdown the cascade of intriguing elements.

Overall- AWESOME! no need to say anymore except I cant wait to try more from Unibroue.

One more Unibroue brew and their most acclaimed beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a large snifter. Pale straw like yellow color. A lot of haze and some white Belgian yeast suspensions towards the bottom. Excellent one finger thick white colored head with long retention. Awesome Belgian lacing on the sides. No bubbles seen.

A very good aroma filled with some strong dry fruits, dates and stuff. A good spicy and fruity nose filled with some typical Belgian stuff. One of the better aromas i have experienced. Some clove like phenols and slight banana hints. A very subtle malt profile. Very well hidden alcohol.

Taste is crisp and soft. Malts are hidden along with the alcohol. Prominent flavor is of some clove like phenols and a lot of fruity esters. Just a tad hint of bitterness mainly due to some hops and spiciness. Finish is more on the semi-dry to slightly sweeter side.

Mouth feel is very well medium body. Crisp, effervescent, smooth and easy. Moderate to slightly high carbonation. No astringency and no alcohol warmth.

Style Rate: 4.5
Personal Rate: 4.25

A- A pale, cloudy peach colored body with a thin layer of white bubbles. Light shines through the body, but the cloudiness makes it not transparent.

S- Very fruity. White grapes, pear, apple, apricot, citrus and lemongrass, some herbal notes as well. Definitely a lot going on.

T- Tons of fruit flavors come through over yeasty, bready flavors. Apricot, pear, dried berries, white grapes, definitely some herbal notes too, with a somewhat medicinal finish.

M- Very crisp carbonation bite. High carbonation, medium bodied, creamy and yeasty mouthfeel.

O- Overall a very unique tripel. Lot of different fruit flavors than other tripels. Tastes close to flavors of a sparkling cider.
