Unibroue La Fin Du Monde

unibroue-la-fin-du-monde

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.
