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.

Imbibed on tap at Good Karma on 12/14/12.

Pours a straw color, very slightly opaque, with a thin white head with no lacing. Aroma starts with sweet white bread with allspice, cinnamon, and clove. Surprisingly lacking in the banana category. The taste is very white bready at the base with strong spices as listed above, some candied sugar, and the ever recognizable noble hops sugary nectar. The feel is very balanced win a super dry finish. Even though I think that the finish is too dry, it completely covers the 9% ABV. Remarkable beer.

This hits all the notes of the Tripel style and strikes a chord with your taste buds. It's classic and the standard, Belgian born or not.

Tasted and reviewed on 12/21/12, in honor of the end of the world.

25.4 oz. bottle poured into wine glass

A- Turbid golden yellow-orange (yeah, lots of color) with a white one finger head that's quite fizzy. Dissipates down to little patches, yet a slight swirl enhances the head instantly. A little bit of lacing remains around the glass

S- Fruity up front, maybe peachy, and some light freshly baked bread in the background. Booze is fairly strong, but smells delicious.

T- Very sweet, and fruity. Bread comes up more so than in the smell, but all that yeast screams at you in the taste.

M- Quite thick but very smooth, velvety. The carbonation dances on the tongue and it makes me giddy! Perfect feel.

O- Delicious, complex (and baffling.) You know it's good when it brings a smile to your face every time you take a sip. A wonderful beer, and if I did know the world was ending, it might just be the beer I go out on.

A- Golden and cloudy. Soapy head, about 1"

S- Citrusy lemon with hints of pepper. Almost a lemon pepper

T- Strong tripel taste with buttery start. Citrus in the middle. After tast, pepper at back of tongue.

MF- Medium to heavy carbonation. Like a light fizzy champagne

O- Great tripel. So easy to drink. But, be careful!
