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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Orange with a huge head. Good retention and solid lacing.

Smells a lot like banana, maybe too much so. Sweet malts and a bit of spice/pepper.

Taste is bold and comples, but finishes with the distinct banana flavor. Has that typical Unibroue yeast flavor. Alcohol isn't completely hidden but it is balanced well in the flavor profile.

High carbonation, crisp and solid mouthfeel.

After trying many other Triples I came back to La Fin Du Monde and remembered why it was so highly rated. There aren't many tripels made outside of Belgium that are this good, maybe none.

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

A: beautiful cloudy straw orange color with a towering nearly white head that has great retention.

S: coriander, slight pepper, citrus

T: sweet malt, orange, coriander, and slight peppery flavor

M: great amount of carbonation that gives a light feeling rather than a harsh force carbonation. Medium body on this is still pretty heavy feeling, but it becomes lighter as it warms.

O: very good tripel, but I am just about done with spice as I've had a lot of spiced beers in the last couple of days. Will come back to it, but I don't think it's quite on par with the trappist versions.
