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 a 750ml corked bottle into a Chimay chalice. Beautifully vibrant copper-orange in color with a crisp 2-finger frothy off-white head. Hazy and very effervescent in texture.

S: Pleasant and fruity in aroma, with notes of orange, spices, a touch of banana and some flowers mixed in. Light, pleasant, and rich.

T: Spicy up-front, sweet in the middle, and a bit boozy on the swallow. Notes of cloves, bananas, orange peel, rose petals, vanilla, a touch of sourness and some esters of alcohol at the end. Well-balanced and full of flavor without an overpowering single flavor. Clearly crafted lovingly.

M: There is a bubbly, frothy up-front feel, with a Creamy, full-bodied middle, and a hot syrupy swallow. The head stays throughout and helps provide a nice feel. There is a definite alcoholic hotness on the swallow with a sticky linger.

O: A tremendously well-crafted beer with clear tripel style and a balanced approach. A true tribute to the style.
