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.

A - A glorious, ethereal aesthetic: Pale orange, gold with a lot of haze. Bubbles majestically float up from the bottom. Head is the whitest head I've ever encountered; laces well and retains a fantastic thick, flat, pure white foam on the top. Excellent!

S - Yeast; candied light fruits from grapes and apricots to peaches and pear. Zesty: spices - coriander. Cotton candy notes.

T - Matches the nose almost to the point. Phew this is good! The malt here is honey. Some ginger here as well. Flavor is amazingly well-balanced and in check.

M - Perfect. Medium-bodied. So well-balanced through the sip; the body is the same as it enters your mouth through the time you swallow it. Silky in feel.

D - Simply one of the greatest beers I've ever had. I can't believe I've never had this until now. I can see this being the only beer I ever drink when I'm like 40 and older. Eruditely crafted.
