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.

I have had this beer more times than I can count. It was one of the first craft brews I ever enjoyed and it appeases me to finally get to review it!

A - A deep rich yellow which looks as if it were dense straw. The head is large and coated with small bubbles. Ample lacing makes this a beautiful Tripel.

S - An explosion of sweet banana and fruits alongside spices that tickle the nose. Comes together on the rear with some sweet malts.

T - Follows the nose with the addition of big malts, sweet honey and some citrus. This beer is not for every occasion, although if one is looking for a desert beer with big ABV and smooth taste, this is the one.

M - The hops burst and tingle the palette and recede as the carbonation eases off. Big bodied with a light crisp taste. Fantastic.

O - This is one of my favorite beers for a reason: it is unique and absolutely huge given the sweet nature. Truly the pinnacle of what Unibroe has produced and I will be drinking this one until they cease production.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours golden with a high white foam. Plenty of carbonation, and slightly hazy.

S - Scents of ripe fruit and spices. Smells like cloves, ginger root, and nutmeg.

T - Flavors are crisp and refreshing. Sweetness that is similar to a riesling wine, with a tangy feel from the yeast strain. The finish is loaded with a spicy bite.

M - Refreshing, masks its ABV well, and is generally smooth.

O - Glad to get around to reviewing this one. Perhaps Unibroue's best offering. Easily a top shelf tripel.

It had been along time since I had this treat. Thanks for sharing it at a bottleshare Dennis

Look: Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a 1/2 inch bubbly white head and good retention with some circular lacing

Smell: Banana bread, clove and some spices. Belgian yeast gives it a slight funkiness

Taste: The beer starts off with a slight funk from the yeast and then the banana bread flavor kicks in for the style it work nicely. the beer finishes with some citrus and a hint of spice

Mouthfeel: Not quite medium body and high carbonation that stings the roof of your mouth a bit off putting

Overall: This is one of the better triples I have had and one of the few beers from unibroue that I actually like.
