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.

Poured from 750 to snifter:

Pours like a murky apple cider with a couple of fingers of delicate, short-lived white froth. Minimal beading. Smells lovely - cloves, banana, soft citrus, candy-like booze. Very unique taste. It's got all the elements of the nose with the addition of some white grapes or apple? Very smooth and virtually zero traceable alcohol burn. The body is light, easy-drinking which really goes a long way here. A well executed, refreshing Tripel.

Golden yellow and quite hazy from the yeast. Pours a substantial head that leaves a light layer of foam and patches of lace.

Bright, fresh, fruity aroma of lemons, apples and pineapple. Banana and cloves. Lots of yeast but perfectly balanced in the nose. Perfect amount of spicy hops. Alcohol is nowhere to be found.

Incredible flavor. Hoppy ginger and lemon bite in perfect balance with wheat bread and fruity malt backbone. Sweet and tart at the same time. Hint of menthol. Delicious and smooth through and through. Yeast flavor in the finish is smooth and solidifies the whole experience.

Exceptional feel with medium body and smooth texture. Excites the tongue with a subtle yet lively carbonation. Finishes on the dry side with residual yeast texture.

Everything about this beer is awe inspiring! If you are a fan of Belgian style tripels, this is a must try. Be forewarned though, this beer is very deceiving as the 9% alcohol is well concealed.
