Merry Christmas! La Fin Du Monde is a golden Belgian Tripel from Unibroue, the Belgian specialists from Quebec. It’s got a beautiful head that’s reminiscent of champagne but lasts much longer. The nose has loads of sour Belgian yeast and some grassiness. The middle is carbonated with a punch of tart apples and pears, and bit of honey gives it some sweetness. The finish is bitter and earthy. This is not a small beer by any measure at 9.0% ABV, but the carbonation and lighter flavors make it more refreshing and festive than the complex and captivating brews Unibroue produces. In this holiday season, this would be a fine alternative to champagne for the beer aficionado.
I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
