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.

Really thick lovely white head. Smells like a pretty average tripel, heavy on the yeast but normal range of spices and cloves and light malt. Flavor is similar, again very yeasty, very good but not spectacular. Mouthfeel is awesome, milky smooth and super well carbonated, extremely drinkable. Overall a really nice triple, the mouthfeel makes this beer or it would be no more than an above average example of the style.

7.7/10

A- Hazy golden blonde color with a 1" thick white head, subsiding to a nice white lacing

S-Quite bready and toasty with hints of apples, slightly grassy and floral

T-Very crisp and dry, smooth slightly sweet malt pilsner malt flavor with a slight citrusy spice or hop character

M-Very effervescent, smooth, crisp and dry

O- A nice tripel, not as malty or flavorful as others I've had. Very dry, crisp and refreshing, hides its 9% abv very well

Poured from the bottle into a duvel glass.

A: Hazy golden orange color with a fair amount of carbonation. Two finger bubbly white head. Soapy sortof lacing.

S: I smell the yeast, malty biscuit, banana, apple, a little pepper in the smell.

T: Very complex tasting, banana, apple, yeast, malty. Almost like a cider taste. Little peppery tasting as well.

M: Medium bodied. A little sweeter. Definitely has the carbonation feel to it.

Overall a great beer. This isn't even really my style beer but it has a great taste. Very complex.
