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.

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.

I cannot believe I haven't reviewed this one yet as I actually go to Canada and buy by the case for this. $36 up there for a case.

A-straw yellow, pale with lots of foam. very bottle conditioned.

S-blegian smells, banana/bubble gum with some pepperiness and a dryness I love. Like a better than trappist smell.

T-a dryer fruity/estery tripel should. very belgian/very trappist but not. very good. I did the wrong thing and drank along side of my homebrew tripel which put mine to shame.

M-light and bubbly, does not taste like 9%!! Very light.

750 ML bottle with an expiration date of 4-6-14.

I had to use pliers to get the cork to budge and it left the bottle with a really loud pop but no overflow. It looks slightly hazy in the brown bottle and I can see some sediment.

A- Pours a slightly hazy gold color into a snifter with a one inch head that quickly dissipated to a foamy cap. Many lines of tiny bubbles.

S- What a magnificent nose. Sweetness, probably the alcohol but under that the malt and a hint of hops. Fresh fruit and floral notes. Deep, rich and persistent.

T- The taste is amazing. Mango, pineapple, mildly sweet up front giving way to a cider like tang at the finish. Some yeast notes in the finish.

M- Full bodied, carbonation is noticeable like a good sparkling wine. Carbonation yields to a velvety texture.

O- This is a very complex, well made triple with a huge flavor profile. I really want to give this a 5 but I didn't get the big creamy head that is supposed to be typical for this style. I'm not sure it is reasonable to expect a creamy head since this is bottle conditioned with carbonation that reminds me of fine Champaign. I am going to make this a regular part of my lineup and look forward to pairing it with food.
