Style: 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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: pale amber haze with thin white head (poured carefully so as not to disturb the yeast) - but compared to other tripels, a little disappointing - no lace or head retention

S: fruity, sweet, some hops

T: very delicious fruits and spice, some tartness - richer (thicker?) than a Westmalle, more on par with an Affligem or Gnomegang - spices and a distinct yeast character are evident, setting it apart from the Westmalle and Karmeliet

M: medium-light body, some chew (for a tripel)

O: Please understand that I was really impressed with Westmalle's tripel and was briefly addicted to Gnomegang (a strong pale Belgian by name, but reminiscent of a tripel). I must give props to one of the brewers that really inspired me to drink beer. Unibroue makes nothing but quality beer - Canadian, but in the Belgian style. This is a worthy tripel, nice and full, strong, and flavorful. Get one if you don't know what I'm talking about.
