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.

M- Very nicely carbonated. Effervescent.

2.5 finger head with nice lacing on a murky amber and golden body. Aroma is yeasty with dark fruit, mostly red apples, and spices. Flavor is excellent with a nice yeast and spice profile on a caramel malt backbone. Very crisp, moderate to high carbonation and medium body. This has been one of my favorites for a long time. The apple notes are especially good. Overall an excellent beer and go-to beer when available.
