La Fin Du Monde – Unibroue (4.5 out of 5)


Origin: Chambly, Quebec Canada

Style: Tripel

ABV:  9.0%

La Fin Du Monde means “The End of the World”, and if so this brewer in Quebec Canada has found a tasty way to go out.  The claim on their website is that this is the most winning beer in Canada.  I can’t confirm that claim but I can testify to its bold flavor.

Out of the 750ml bottle it pours a cloudy honey with a frothy head that dissipates quickly though it does retain a small head with good retention.

The smell is of apricots, pears, spicy cloves and I felt it almost had an earthy vegetable quality with an undertone of Belgian funkiness against a malt base.

On the palette this a bright strong spicy beer.  The alcohol content at 9% has a solid warming quality as you sip it.  The clove spiciness lingers on the tongue long after each taste.

If it is end times, there are not many beers that would be more fitting than this great Canadian made Belgian tripel.
