"The end of the world. The excellence of triple fermentation through a blend of special yeasts gives this malt beverage an exquisitely robust flavor of exceptional refinement."

Nice. I love these Tripels! Very much similar to St Bernieís Tripel which puts it right up there amongst enjoyable Belgian ales. Standard cloudy gold with creamy head and ultra-creamy mouthfeel, the two very positive things I associate with a Tripel. Hard to really go wrong otherwise. Excellent.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2005
Tastes like a good yeasty wheat beer (yeasty no doubt because of the triple fermentation). Nice soft carbonation (but the bottle I had was left on the window sill, and it froze, with a little bit leaking out of the cork). A slight dryness about it, probably because of the sediment. Lots of hoppy prescences. Slight wine flavour, no doubt due to the high alcohol. Great packaging!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Another Triple from Unibroue?? They seem to love the style... Orangey golden, hazy beer with a huge head and - again - lotís of carbonation. Probably the bottle fermentation adds to the CO2. Pronounced yeasty notes in both nose and aromas. Almost wheaty in itís malty softness. Excellent. 110704

ElGaucho (2388) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Tart/sour aroma with a solid alcohol presence. Some citrus, some bubblegum, some vomit. White champagne style bubbles upon the pour that quickly fizzle to a whispy ring around the edge of the glass. Very cloudy yellow body. Not much lace. Iíve had this once or twice before. I remember being a little afraid of the high alcohol and being frankly a little overwhelmed. I have tamed those demons. Very highly carbonated; effervescent like champagne. A very well made brew. Fairly sweet, although not too much so. Some fruit. Alcohol is subdued for 9%. I feel pretty good knowing I am drinking this out of the perfect vessel, a "La Fin Du Monde" logo tulip glass. A very good brew.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 14, 2005
An excellent and refreshing choice. Good full smooth flavor and stil veryl refreshing and light. There is a fruity-spicy taste - mainly a peppered apple taster, but several other flavors entering the mix. A bubbly medium bodied mouthfeel and a bold finish that leaves you wanting more. ($6.49/750ml)

Louipa (121) - USA - MAY 11, 2005
Its light orange and slightly hazy out of the big corked bottle. There is a very big white head which was unexpected. It was very very easy to drink. It tasted mostly of yeast which was a good thing. I detected banana in the finish, not alot of spice but there was some. Not my usual cup of tea either but it was good. It was pretty damn good.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 10, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 A nice beer which comes across as "Belgian lite." Characteristic yeasty aromas and a distinctive tripel body but a bit toned down. A very pleasant beer when you want Belgian but not so much of it.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 Pours a nice hazy yellowish-orange color with littlte head. Smells of a hefe-weiss: cloves, banana, yeast. Spicy and fruity to the nose. Taste is banana with a touch of green apple, clove, and slight peppary taste. Very smooth and drinkable but the alcohol comes out of nowhere in the finish. Very good beer indeed.

I am really happy to be reviewing this beer and also a bit frustrated. I have been drinking La Fin Du Mond for over 7 years now and is one of my all-time favorites. Unfortunately, I still donít think my critical palate is sharp enough to do this beer justice. Anyway... Pours a hazy pale gold with a rich snowy white head. Very lacy. Smells like spicy sour apples. Yeasty and fruity. Taste is heavenly. Frtuity apple in the body underpinned by sweet spicy flavors. Sour malt and yeast to finish. Smooth. And then very slowly, very subtly, the beer shifts into another gear and that dull alcohol warming comes through in the aftertaste. Itís a thing of beauty. This is a gorgeous beer. A perfect sipping brew for a cold winterís evening.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2005
(Bottled) Opaque orange color with a large, quite tight and lacy head. Very fruity (apple, orange) and yeasty aroma with witbier-like, peppery and flowery spiciness. Extremely fruity, yeasty and peppery-orangey, acidic flavor. Bitter, flowery-hoppy and peppery finish. ABV is very well hidden. Medium-bodied palate with foamy carbonation. A very easily drinkable and refreshing, tasty tripel.
