BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

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.

I used to take trips into Montreal to be able to stop on the way back and grab as much of any Unibroue products as I could legally bring back. Seriously, this is everything I look for in a beer. For being a Tripel, this could very much be a table beer, no matter the ABV, because of it's smooth drinkability, smoothness on the palette and just overall beer goodness. If this is the End of the World, then sign me the hell up because this is where I want base camp.

A 750ml corked and caged bottle with a best before date of 24th July 2017. Poured into a Chimay goblet glass.

Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with a one finger white head that settled to a nice creamy layer and left nice curtain lacing.

Aroma: Juicy orange and mango, biscuity malt with touches of honey and banana.

Taste: Biscuity, banana, honey and orange with a hint of peach. Clove and light peppery spice on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: The citrusy orange was just coming on a bit too strong at times for me. Other than that, it was nice.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a fat bottom snifter.
A- Cloudy tangerine-gold with a nice white, frothy head and good carbonation.
S- Sweetness of ripe oranges and mangos, wheat. grassy herbs, vodka warmness
T- More orange/mango sweetness with a hint of spice and strong alcohol warmness in the finish. Also bell peppers.
M- Very light and smooth considering the high ABV (Unibroue is really good at that), I could drink this all day.
O- I quite like this beer although i due find it to be bit too sweet, It would due well with a stronger spice taste on the finish

Pours a lovely hazy gold with a big solid white head that lasts, but with little lacing. Cider-like aromas meld perfectly with doughy yeast, honey, rosemary, and a faint maltiness. Remarkably balanced flavors that largely follow the nose. Moderate carbonation. Overall I would say this is my favorite beer, especially during the colder months. It brings the taste of Belgium to New England AND FOR ONLY $6.50/750ml bottle!

Smooth, flavorful.. One - if not the best - of its type.

This amazing, aromatic ale is like heaven in my mouth. Everything about this beer from the awesome packaging to the brilliant finish is just out of this world. This is the beer that I was looking for my whole life and didn't know existed until just a few years ago. There's a reason that so many people think this beer is incredible; because it really is. Cheers!

It's the best Tripel I've ever had.. Actually, I m not really into Tripel, but this is da bomb!! everything was perfect. good enough foam, carbonation, and mouthfeel was crisp, light, fruity, refreshing.
My hobby is to taste new beers as much as I can but I would get this one again whenever I have a party with my friends
