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.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with golden brown highlights. A huge pure white head forms and leaves some chunky lacing.

Smell is yeasty, with lemon zest and spice notes that make me happy. Some apple skin is also present.

Taste is at first citrus and tangy yeast. The middle has some malt, and the whole taste has a nice peppery flavor.

Upon first drinking there is a lemony bite to the tongue. Other than that, the beer is nice and smooth. A medium body is lightened up by great bubbly carbonation.

I have enjoyed this beer for years, and will continue to do so. A classic taste, and a great beer, with some power to boot.

12 oz bottle poured into a Maudite Snifter

A: Yellowish/Straw amber with 2 finger white head. Lots of small bubbles make up the head. Tons of visible carbonation. Mild lacing on sides of glass. Head remains to the end.

S: Yeasty, citrusy with orange peel. Slight hop aroma on the tail end. Earthy tone on the malt

T: Bready taste with hints of orange. Hints of banana. Underlying hop tones. Nothing drastic in the flavor but very well balanced and drinkable. Not too overpowering with the orange flavor which I like.

M: Smooth body. Tons of carbonation. Does not leave any unpleasant tastes in your mouth.

Overall a wonderful beer at a decent price. My favorite from the brewer.
