Style: Tripel

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: Deep gold with a white head. Excellent formation and retention. some lacing remains.

S: Deep caramel and malts under Belgian funk. No hops. Smells complex

T: Yeast is right up front, then the deep flavors of the malt and a little breadiness kick in. Complex and nice.

M: Medium body. Almost too much for a tripel.

O: Does not show any heat from the 9%. Everything is a winner with this one.

This bottle didn’t pop, so I suspect it might be a little off. Very thin head, color is orange/amber. Aroma is yeast, citrus, dried fruit. Taste is mildly tart, jolly rancher sour apple. Body is slick and smooth with tingly finish.

Pours a hazy, honey-like golden color with one of the biggest, fluffiest heads ever. Smells of honey, clove, apricots, sugar, and floral hops. Flavor follows suit, with an added layer of warmth from the alcohol and some spicy Belgian yeast character. Overall one of my favorite beers.

A - Straw colored with some golden hues, quite cloudy. Nice head that fades to a covering even with the high level of carbonation.

S - Belgian twang, yeasty, sweet fruit, a touch of spice, this is what a tripel should smell like.

T - Much like the aroma, start with a acidic but sweet fruit flavor, quickly followed by some spice and a bread like character from the yeast. Ends with a nice touch of alcohol as it goes down.

M - Crisp feel both because of the high carbonation and alcohol, light body and a bit warming. Remains refreshing even with the high alcohol content.

O - This isn't from Belgium? They have nailed the Tripel style. An absolute staple if you are a fan of Belgian style beers.
