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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Slightly hazy blonde with a golden hue. Poured on tulip glass. Nice 2-inch white creamy head fades down to form a thick lacing, which remains throughout the entire session.
SRM: 5-6

Smell: Banana, melon, pineapple, pepper and clove. Juicy fruit bubblegum all the way through. Super spicy yeasty esters presentation.

Taste: Lemon zest, a bit of cream and mildness from the thick powdery yeast. Straw like chewiness and weak cotton candy-like strawberry; sweet, lingering flavour with slight wheat tartness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to high carbonation. Exceptionally warm and dry finish, considering suggested sweetness from fruity aroma and flavour. Well-balanced alcohol.

Overall: At 14 ºC, this is the greatest tripel from Quebec that goes beyond the style and expectations. Could be considered too delicious to become a classic, but it certainly exudes hard to achieve complexities.

Poured into my Unibroue glass.

This brew pours an inviting hazy dark golden hue with visible flakes of yeast floating around. Produces a large creamy white head which sticks around til the end. The lacing left some peculiar designs in my glass. Beautiful!

Smells of mixed yeasts and some sweet malts in the background. The smell makes you rather thirsty...

WOW this tastes fantastic. A symphony of cloves, bananas, earthy grain, a hint of spice, and sweet creamy malts and the slightest hoppiness on the aftertaste. Reminds me a lot of a hefeweizen. For a 9% beer, the alcohol is hidden impressively. Extremely refreshing.

Carbonation is perfect. The alcohol is completely hidden yet it still warms your mouth. It's soft, thick, creamy, everything a beer should be.

Brilliant. I am definitely coming back for more of this.
