Style: Tripel

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.

Hazy straw color; very fizzy to style; malty / spicy nose; 9% alcohol comes through immediately on first sip; wide complexity of flavors from spices, vanilla, clove, lemon and banana with mild lactic sourness; moderate late hop presence with long spicy hop finish. A beautiful and complex ale.

Holy Cow... Go Quebec! This is a wonderful beer. Fruity nose, but with no cloying, too-sweet flavors. You get the pears and tropical fruit, but when coupled with gentle hopping the flavor profile mellows into a balanced, pleasant drinkability. The hazy appearance is lovely and golden. This is a great late summer beer. I will certainly get it again!

Tulip glass.

A: The bottle foamed slowly out of the bottle for a few miPours a bright but opaque orangish color, a solid finger of white, largish bubbled head. Good retention, with the ring sticking around for the entire glass.

S: Malt forward with dried apricot, apple, pear, coriander and spice, and kind of a bready rye.

T: Fresh orange malt, pear juice, rich maltiness, some honey and spice (white pepper), with a warming alcohol flavor on a long finish.

M: Kind of a fuzzy mouthfeel, medium-high and somewhat sharp carbonation, and medium body.

O: Not one of my favorite styles, but this is an excellent example of a tripel.

When I first had this beer about 9 months ago, I wasn't too impressed. It has been on my list of "must revisits" for a long time, because I guess my palate wasnt too developed back then.

A - glorious frothy 1 1/2 finger head. extremely hazy cloudy yellow, almost orange tinted body. decent amount of lacing on the glass.

S - clove, white pepper, yeast , touch of banana,

T - light but very present clove, yeast, maybe some pear fruitiness somewhere behind the strong carbonation, dry in the front, middle, and back, but not constantly just dry; the other flavors come through plenty.

M - very fizzy mouthfeel, carbonation dances on my tongue. refreshing, but the body is dense with a slightly chalky, yeasty heaviness. but the carb brings it up like champagne. very nice.

Overall - Unfortunately I don't prefer dry over un-dry, and this is probably why i didnt care for the beer the first time i tried it, but it is still very tasty, and the reputation is worthy.
I did enjoy this beer quite a bit.
