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.

Pours a hazy, honey-like golden color with one of the biggest, fluffiest heads ever. Smells of honey, clove, apricots, sugar, and floral hops. Flavor follows suit, with an added layer of warmth from the alcohol and some spicy Belgian yeast character. Overall one of my favorite beers.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Straw colored with some golden hues, quite cloudy. Nice head that fades to a covering even with the high level of carbonation.

S - Belgian twang, yeasty, sweet fruit, a touch of spice, this is what a tripel should smell like.

T - Much like the aroma, start with a acidic but sweet fruit flavor, quickly followed by some spice and a bread like character from the yeast. Ends with a nice touch of alcohol as it goes down.

M - Crisp feel both because of the high carbonation and alcohol, light body and a bit warming. Remains refreshing even with the high alcohol content.

O - This isn't from Belgium? They have nailed the Tripel style. An absolute staple if you are a fan of Belgian style beers.

From tasting notes 10-26-11
Poured into a tulip glass

Appearance: Cloudy golden pour; huge pale ivory head that settles quite slowly and has mild head retention. There are swirls of dainty lace down the glass and the head is creamy and fluffy.

Smell: Bold aroma profile--yeasty and fruity, with scents of orange peel and some spiceyness as well. there is a nice mellow sweet fruity toffee aroma as well that is very good.

Taste: Very yeasty up front with a refreshing piney bite and a wonderful fruity taste throughout that holds through the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full in body with medium-low carbonation and a crisp, wet finish.

Overall: An excellent example of balance and well-blended flavors, smells, etc. Superior feel, drinkability, smell, and taste.
