Quebec, Canada

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

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 several times. While I am impressed by the beer, I am not as overwhelmed as others. Poured from the bottle, the beer radiates a pleasant sour but fruity aroma. The scent gives a positive hint of what is to come. Giving a moderate head, the color is a cloudly golden color. The initial taste is a nice fruity sour flavor. It almost seems like a orange flavored Belgian. For some reason, I feel like the taste should be somewhat more complex. Being a Tripel, it is somewhat thick. Some might even describe it as being slightly chewy. There is some degree of spiciness in the aftertaste that is accompanied by a slight warming sensation as the beer goes down. While the aftertaste is mild, it does leave a pleasant reminder.
