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 very very pale golden color with lots of visible carbonation and some cloudiness. Big bright white head is active at the top of the glass.

Nose consists of lots of spicy clove and bubble gum as well as some sweet cereal malts. Smell is heavenly actually.

Extremely clean and full bodied. Flavors are very well blended so hard to pin point. There's definitely a big spicy clove presence on the front end of the tongue. Tingly after taste, effervescent. The flavors keep escaping me but probably because of how clean of a brew this is. Your tongue feels like it's gone through work out after a sip that's for sure and not in a bad way.

I dont know what it is about this beer. It's just a really solid drinker.

Cloudy yellow pour with a fair amount of sediment in the bottle.

Moderately strong fruit aroma. Heavy lacing, well carbonated. A banana, clove, fig kind of nose. Definitely dominated by the banana flavor. Best by date was 02/12 but something seemed a little off with this beer. It did not taste skunked, but the flavor combination reminds me of a beer that's been sitting in the sun for a while. Not my favorite Unibroue.

That strong malt profile combined with an overpowering banana ester flavor left me looking for something a little dryer. Like maybe a glass of water...
