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.

Pale golden and slightly cloudy with medium sized bubbles.
Aromas of dried fruit and trail mix, orange peels, candy corns, sourdough bread, lemon curd and almonds dominate.
Flavors of dried apricot, lemons and oranges; candy corns, lees, almonds and macadamia nuts and chardonnay. A really nice long finish, and amazingly light considering it tips the scales at 9% abv.
A really fantastic beer. I would drink this with just about anything, but grilled pork chops with apricot chutney feels like the perfect pairing here.
I am continually amazed, being of a wine background, at how much complexity today's craft beers are generating.
High marks for this great offering! Will definitely buy this again.

Slightly Sour.
Lemony.
Just a touch of bitterness to it.
Not too hoppy.

Is a higher ABV beer, but doesn't taste boozy. It is a lot mellower than you would expect it to be.

It is nice and clear, has a slight head to it. Nice color, bright.

Bottle and label are attractive.
