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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass.

A - Opaque, light honeyed bronze. Pours a frothy two-finger head that, even while pouring, fizzes quickly out of existence. Bright and active. The carbonation held to the narrow curve of the tulip, shooting up to the disappearing head.

S - Rich florals and spice. Heavy on the coriander and citrus, as well as tropical fruit and a bready backbone.

T - Wild, sour yeast hits with a juicy, candied sweetness. Pervasive spice. Big fruit flavors break down into subtle hints of orange, mango, and a bit of pineapple. Bitter, grassy hops round out the profile. Bold and complex, but fresh and lively.

M - Both zesty and creamy, this one's spot on.

Overall - Obviously an astounding beer, and one that could easily please even the most discerning. Big tripel flavors meet up with qualities of a real hefeweizen, and even a bit of the freshness and unique spicing of a saison, to bring a sweet, sour treat. Enjoy it slow. Then enjoy a few more.
