La Fin Du MondeLa Fin Du Monde

Brewed by:
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.

A: Cloudy, pale golden color. Head was 2 fingers of frothy off-white, with decent lingering and nice lacing.

S: Sourdough bread. Also some floral and spicy pepper notes. Almost a cross between a Lambic and a Belgian Witbier.

T: A little sweet when it first touches the tongue, but the sour notes quickly dominate. The grains don't really come through at all. The finish was a little dry, with late and lingering bitterness.

M: Very crisp and heavily carbonated. The alcohol burn was present, but very mild despite the 9% ABV.

O: A solid contender in its class. I'd have another, but I wouldn't spend a lot of money to get one.

A - nice colour

S - banana, yeasty with a hint of sweetness

T - clean crisp with no aftertaste.

M - no bite, drinks nice

Overall, a nice fruity drinkable beer. It goes nicely with spice wings and grilled seafood. Also, if you reduce it over low heat in a sauce pan, it mixes well with mix berries.

Poured in a La Trappe glass.

Appearance - brown colour with read around the edges. Bright white head that turns in to a thin layer ontop of the beer.

Smell - typical tripel yeast smell, banana, candy sugar.

Taste - sweet maltiness, banana. Follows the nose fairly well but not as much candy in the taste. The alcohol is a warmind sensation but there isn't any taste of it.

Mouthfeel - As it warms the carbonation becomes less apparent. Medium bodied.

Overall - this is a great beer, great brewery. Fortunately readily available in Ontario, considering we don't get many exceptional beers this is always ncie to grab from the beer store.
