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.

One of my favorite all-time beers. Local stores sell it in a 4-pack of 12oz bottles, which I prefer over the 750ml corked bottle. The beer pours with a great color and cloud, finished with a great head on top. I keep this constantly stocked in my cooler.

The only real flaw with this beer is the high alcohol content, which means you drink less of this delicious brew before you hit the wall. Sometimes hitting the wall is good though \m/

From a 750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with lots of head. Smells of orange, bread, and yeast. Light feel. Tastes like it smells: bright fruit flavors, bread, and spice with a certain warmth from the high alcohol content. One of my all-time favorites.

Loads of bubbles streaming up the glass, a very rich, hazy, golden to amber, with a finger of long lasting, white, foamy head. Sticky lacing. Lots of fruity green apple, and pipe tobacco in the aroma, smells malty. In the taste a white wine vibe that lingers, but up front, yeasty, sweet, but balanced, green apple, and tobacco, again. Plenty of carb on the tongue, medium full body, and dry. Winner winner, chicken dinner! Exceptional brew, right here.

Light appearance with. Pleasant aroma. Nice balance flavor with no alcohol taste. For a recreation of an old beer I think they did a great job. Probably better than the original beer that they are recreating.

If you are looking for a yeast forward, boozy Belgian style ale then you came to the right place. Pours with an aggressive, lively head which sticks around. This is bold across all areas. Full bodied, with a bready spice feel to it. Bitter and almost herbal aftertaste. Complex yet very drinkable. Goes well with food or on its own. Lots to like here.

Exceptional tasting experience. Was a recommended pairing by the bartender on tap at Hogwash in SF. Being from Washington State it reminded me very much of our exceptional ciders, with somewhat high carbonation and light feel.

Some friends of my wife and myself were over just a few nights ago and decided to pick this bottle up from a local bottle shop since the NFL games were not going our way. We figured spending our time catching up and talking was more worthwhile than watching two NFL games that were not incredibly fun to watch.

This tripel (spelled on the bottle as Triple) pours a cloudy yellow hue with very high carbonation readily visible, along with a frothy white head that dissipates slowly to a thin lacing that is retained. 4/5 The aroma is quite yeasty with the yeast esters really coming out strongly. White stone fruit, typical Belgian spices, banana, clove, and coriander really come out nicely along with an undertone of earthy hops. 4/5 The flavor is very typical of Belgian style beers in that it is spicy with banana, clove, and white pepper making their appearances. Along with these, notes of light caramel, yeast, white bread, and earthy hops all come out in a layered style. The booziness comes out quite strong initially but then diminishes over time. Bitterness is light and does not linger after swallowing. Although, the yeasty esters really stay around for quite some time. 4/5 A light carbonation burn (although not as much as expected) hits the tongue straight away, with the beer proceeding to then showcase its medium body and wet/coating nature. There is very little dryness and this dryness does not linger. 4/5 This is a very well layered beer that is surprisingly strong in terms of banana and clove for a tripel. The booziness is quite high, as expected, but it is not muted or hidden like many tripels attempt. Very good tripel here and would gladly come back to this one. 4/5
