BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada

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.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a medium white lasting fluffy head. mild lacing. Aroma is of sweet spicy fruit, Belgian yeast, some notes of citrus and banana, some biscuit malt as well. Taste is same as aroma with a good spiced hops bitterness. A medium body, with lively carbonation, almost champagne like. The finish is a combination of sweet spiced fruit, Belgian yeast, biscuit malt with spicy hops bitterness on the end for balance. This brew has some nice champagne like effervescence. Overall a very good, delightful, and tasty brew. very nice.

From the 4 bottle “Taster Pack” -

A: Poured from the 12oz bottle into a Widmer Bros tulip glass... cloudy, citrus gold; fizzy, two-finger ultra white head dies down fast; lots of tiny bubbles rushing to the surface throughout.

S: Bready / crusty malts; some yeast spiciness and tartness; some phenolic tones.

T: Crisp, bready malts; green apple skin tartness that is played up by the yeast; peppery hops and touch of ginger on the finish; a note of alcohol on the finish, too.

M: Medium-light bodied with a high carbonation; its crispness doesn’t incline you to think its a pretty big ale at 9% abv.

D/O: Very drinkable and enjoyable. Next time I’ll try for a rougher pour to create that massive head. A very nice tripel.

12 oz. bottle into Duvel balloon tulip.

A-Pours a bright and cloudy,golden yellow with a dense,two fingers worth of chalky,white foam that died slowly leaving sticky ribbons of lacing.

S-Plantain,clove,white pepper,Asian pear and lemon
with earthy notes of straw,minerals and bready yeasts.

T-Green grapes,banana,clove,lemon and baked bread with some slight mineral qualities and a touch of hop sweetness.

M-Full and bright with a creamy mouthfeel fed by lively carbonation and resulting in a moderately dry finish.

O-A truly superb tripel.Extremely drinkable and satisfying on many levels.

Finally giving this one a go - previously not a huge fan of Tripel style.

Pours hazy golden with a towering head considering how gingerly I poured. Bubbly visible carbonation helps to maintain the head for quite a while. Some pretty lace. Great aroma. Strength as well as quality. More of a grainy scent with very little sweetness. Taste follows the nose. Very well balanced in all directions. No one characteristic leaps out at me. Wonderful feel. Medium-bodied with a dry, tingly finish. No discernible alcohol at all. If you're scared off by sweet bubblegum Tripels this one is for you.
