BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
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.

Served from a 750ml bottle into a Pilsner glass.

A: Hazy and rich looking. Sediment is in the beer adding to the cloudiness and taking away from the clarity. Nice yellow/gold color. Thick white head about 2 fingers.

S: Very nice. Smells of coriander, slight citrus, very fruity and appetizing.

T: Tastes how it smells. Very good. Fruity and citrusy with good yeast/bread flavor. Lots of nice esters from the yeast. Not to hoppy with little bitterness.

M: Smooth. The alcohol content is hidden very well. Goes down like a 6-7 when its pretty potent. Deceptively smooth and clean. The head has a good feel to it too.

Overall: Amazing beer. The first beer I had that was not a macro-lager. Really my introduction to good beers and learning to taste and analyze flavors in beer. Life changing beer. :)

Unibroue's 'La Fin Du Monde' @ 9.0% , a Tripel served from a corked 750 ml bottle purchased for $6.50 , my first taste was on Dec 21/2012 'The End of the World', and I seem to survived
A-pour is a funky gold from the bottle to a hazy straw/gold in the glass with a good size off white head leaving some thick lace along the goblet's edge
S-wow , the triple fermentation with special yeast really brings out a grapeferuit/citrus right away ,
T-not as much of a wow , sweet citrus possibly pear , lots of yeast , malty
MF-double wow , after a couple of sips , so smooth on the palate , medium carbonation , full body , the ABV is well hidden , a true sipping beer , so warming inside
Ov-incredible beer , so complex , so well crafted possibly Canada's best , a true must if you love craft beer

Objective review time. Best by 1/15 you say? Pours a hazy gold color with fast fading white head, thin ring with no lace on the glass. Smell: candy sweetness, clove, pear note. Taste: clove infused pale malt, mildly spicy and alcoholic, pear, golden raisin. Light+ bodied, then the carbonation goes a little over the top, finishes drying with clove and a little lingering sweetness. I haven't had one of these for 4 or 5 years. It's totally decent and enjoyable, but, wow, is it massively overrated on review sites.

Lemony taste. Nice and frothy. Goes really well with bready cheesey food. Does not overpower what you are eating and washes it down nicely. Nice light in color. Finish is pleasant. We get so many bad beers from Canada, it is nice to get a truly exceptional beer from north of the border
