BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

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.

A: Pours deep golden with nearly an inch of dense white head.

S: Yeasty fruit. Pear, clove, slightly sharp in the aroma

T/M: Incredibly fruity flavor. Pear, apple, papaya. Moderately sweet and full-bodied. Not all that carbonated in the mouth. Slight solvent taste and sensation in the back of the throat.

La Fin Du Monde has a thin, fizzy, champagne-like, white head, and an initially clear, extremely bubbly, yellow-golden appearance, with a bit of lacing left behind. This beer really clouds up after one swishes and pours in the sediment. The aroma is of sweet, spicy, lightly bready malts, and the flavor is the same, with some sourness, grapefruit, sugar, hard candy, and spice cake (the taste of which grows after the swish & pour operation). Mouthfeel is light to medium, and La Fin Du Monde finishes mostly dry and pleasant. Alcohol is barely detected, and drinkability is super. Overall, this is a sure winner, and I think it is outstanding.

For a Belgian style Tripel, this beer to me is the benchmark for greatness. Of all the tripel's I've had brewed both in Belgium and North America, nothing quite hits every aspect of quality like this one. Had numerous times and every time it lives up to the same highest standards one would expect from Unibroue.
