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.

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

Nice cloudy golden hue pour. Fizzy head.

Smells yeasty. Prominent clove, coriander, and pepper.

Flavour pushes through of clove, coriander and pepper in the end. A mild bitterness. Bread and yeast more pronounced as beer comes up to room temperature.

Smooth, dry and crisp-medium carbonation. Flavours last.

Nothing to pick apart here. A really solid beer that can be enjoyed at anytime of year.

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.
