Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

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 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Hazy golden body with a firm 2 fingers of foam. Solid retention with minimal lacing.

S - Thick yeasty aromas. Banana, Belgian candi, golden raisins, pears, citrus and floral hops. A touch of basement dust as it warms.

T - Banana, pears, clove, lemon grass, white pepper. Wheaty malt holds strong before drying out on the finish. Mild hops provide a spicy grass character

M - Creamy, full but light body with perfect carbonation.

One of my favorite Tripels. The wheat-like malt effortlessly blends with the yeast esters and spice to create a smooth easy drinking beer.

not that this beer needs more good press, but it is quite representative of the style. golden colored tripel with noticeable Belgian yeasty esters on the nose. mouthfeel is light, with a touch of creaminess on the end. lots of fruit qualities waft up when the beer is consumed and seem to linger in its long finish.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Cloudy golden yellow appearance. Lots of bubbly head formed quickly and dissipated slowly to a thin white layer

S - Yeasty and sweet malt smells. Caramel malt and sugars with hints of citrus hops/orange peel.

T - Sweet sugary taste with bits of citrus flavor and just a bit of alcohol. Bready yeast flavor - biscuity finish. Very inviting sweetness of the added malt is well balanced with just enough hops and the yeast. Covers up the high ABV well.

M - Smooth and easy to drink with only moderate carbonation

O - Excellent beer and a treat to enjoy. A great Tripel. The sweetness and bready flavors are outstanding and well balanced. The high ABV is only noticeable after finishing your second glass! Would highly recommend

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: It is a very foggy light yellow with no head when poured.

S: Very fruity. There are aromas of banana, citrus, and lemon. Very strong aroma.

T: Just ok. The aromas mentioned above carry over into the very bold taste.

M: Very very fizzy. The beer is watery.

O: The only reason I bought this was because it was on the top 100 and I wanted to try a tripple. I was not impressed and I am surprised it was on the list to begin with.
