Style: Tripel

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.

This is another one of my favorite beers. It is also a staple around my house.

Poured into a tulip it has a beautiful golden yellow color with a white head and beautiful lacing. This is a good lookin beer.

Smells of cloves and bubblegum/banana. Everything you would expect in a tripel style.

Taste is of pepper and spice notes. Not a lot of this but it's there. Very smooth and tasty. Little bit of clove and spice/noble hops.

Mouthfeel is great with a high carb that is perfect for the style.

Overall I LOVE this beer. I am so glad this is so widely avaliable and I can even get it at my local grocery store. I have had this many times and plan on having it many more.

I've had this beer many times on tap even and for some reason I've never reviewed the beer. But today I have one I bought in a sampler pack of 750's at Costco over a year ago. I know others from the pack have done well over time so I'm interested to see how this one did.

Drinking this in a La Fin Du Monde snifter glass.

A- Good head at front, but it faded quickly. Golden in color, very clear, looks clean and crisp.

S- Wonderful grain smell, honey, golden raisins, pineapple, a citrus note of something very light in here as well.

T- This isn't bad after a year, very mellow. The carbination is a bit much for my liking, especially with the very mellow flavors. The citrus that I smelled comes though in the taste, not hop citrus but something a bit more subtle. Bready with a light sweet honey added. The flavors are very delicate, almost too delicate for the carbination. I don't know how well this would last in terms of longer then a year and a half.

M- The carbination is a bit much for this beer at this point in time. That aside the beer is light bodied for sure.

D- Easy to drink, and would be super amazing on a hot day with some light cheeses or fruits.

Fairly light straw color and pretty clear as well..slight haze.

Big white head that went away fairly quickly.
Smells of sweet candy, almost like bubble gum or cotton candy?
Taste is awesome. Big mouthfeel immediately noticed .Sweet, smooth, highly carbonated. Feel the alcohol burn if held on the tongue.
Bubble gum comes to mind again. Malty with no real noticeable hops.

Orange-hay pour, very hazy, nice small, creamy head. Initial fruity aromas, tropical fruit, pineapples, pretty yeasty. Really nice, creamy on the palate, a lot of fruits, with a soft, gentle washing effect that I can't describe. Some sweet banana bread plays with the mangoes, peaches, and spices. Very nice, and one of the best, most accessible tripels out there.

I've had this beer many times. Yesterday they were selling fourbacks at the store by our house for $9 and they gave you free samples. It is an excellent Belgian Tripel for a reasonable price. I rated it a long time ago but I did not write a review until now.

Look: cloudy golden hue with a one and a half inch bubbly white head.

Aroma: wheaty, some yeast, banana, and clove.

Taste: Flavor is wheaty and caramel sweet malts, banana, pear, clove, yeast flavor, barely noticeable alcohol, relatively mild yet flavorful.

Feel: medium to full mouthfeel

This poured to a subdued yellow and gold color with a good amount of head. It shrank but still did a good job of lasting. The lace is thin but coats much of my glass.

The smell is somewhat fruity and very solid. The taste has hints of banana and other fruits up front and a bit of pepper in the finish. It's very full of flavor while retaining a relatively light body.

I've had other similar ales recently that let me down. La Fin Du Monde is exactly what they wish they were. This is strong yet balanced, and it is very good overall.

Nice looking bottle. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a cloudy golden-orange color with a white sparkling head. The smell is almost like a hefe, sweet with banana and clove, Belgian sugar. Taste is also strong on the clove/spice with no real hop taste and only a slight alcohol aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation that burns the tongue. The overall drinkability is reduced by the very strong clove/spice taste. Overall, I think you're better off with Maudite.
