BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

Style: Belgian 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.

A: Poured from the 750mL bottle into a tulip glass. The beer is a cloudy orange color with a tall foamy near-white head that sticks around for a while.

S: Nice, bright citrus - orange, lemon rind, spice. Some bread malt in there with a nice sweet yeasty aroma.

T: Citrus peel and light fruits dominate, along with a slight bready malt in the back. There is also a light banana and pineapple note in there, and more varied fruits and spices come out as the beer warms a bit more.

F: Crisp and carbonated.

Overall: This is a solid tripel, but not my favorite either in style or from this brewery. A good version of the style; accessible and very drinkable for its strength. It's a good choice, even if there are better ones to be had.

Unibroue's flagship beer, packed with flavor and mystery. A pretty unique tripel with a whole-mouth feel and strong aromas. The yeasty bottom is worth swirling for the last of the pour, giving nice hazy lines in a glass.
FDM is well-worth aging for 6-24 months at room temperature. Best enjoyed at or slightly below room temperature, definitely not rocky-mountain cold.

L: opaque light orange with an impressive off-white head that remains for a good duration
S: malt, tangy, and molasses
T: semi-sweet, slight coffee hint, and chocolate
F: refreshing with great carbonation, like a quality champagne or a soda

Most people probably wouldn't associate a 9% ABV beer with the word "refreshing", but La Fin du Monde is a refreshing beer. La Fin du Monde is not a copy of a Belgian tripel, but is an improvement on the style. This beer is a must if you are a Belgian-style beer fan.

L: gold color with creamy head
N: fruity, citrus-like scent. Lemon-y sweet scent. Fresh hop. Pine. Great scent. A little cider-like. Excellent.
T: reminds me of cider on the first sip with a saison-like feel. Rich body, fruity but not sour. Citrus, pineapple, lemon, fresh berry, guava.
F: Smooth, not dry. Great finish.
Overall: beautifully brewed, easy to drink. Slightly like, not as complex and hoppy, but a very good beer.

been on my 'to buy' list for quite a while. poured from a 12 oz into a tulip a nice orange/gold with a huge creamy head, a few sheets of sticky lacing scrape behind and a foam cap rests atop. nose is full of fruits, ranging from bananas to apples/pears and some darker fruits. bits of funky yeast follow behind and some clove like spiciness. those fruits stick on the tongue, lots of nice pear flavors on top. funk comes through a bit more but never overpowers and the spice just keeps everything else from getting too sweet. drinks wonderfully smooth, an alcohol bite becomes more prominent as it warms but never enough to slow the drinking down. nicely carbonated and medium bodied. might get a pack just to have it around for a bit.
