"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 frothy white head that diminished fairly quickly. Hazy pale orange body. Sensed malty breadlike aromas, along with citrus and pine. Slides through your mouth, you donít drink it,it escapes down your throat. Sweet and citrus gives way to a pleasant bitter aftertaste

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 On tap at the Maple Tree Inn, La Fin du Monde has a lower level of carbonation than the bottled version, but the taste & aroma hold true. A hazy golden body with a sustained white, frothy head, it greetes you with a mildly fruity aroma. Thereís a definite alcohol presence, toffeed malt, with a citric, peppery finish. I like Unibroue. They do interesting, tasty things.

Smapled from 341ml brown bottle. Hazy gold, creamy white head. Lemony sweet aroma. Sweet start with citrus, spice, honey and some banana notes.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2004
Poures hazy gold edging on copper, high carb with a white fluffy head. Plums, citrus, spices and a touch of alcohol in the aroma. Smooth medium-full mouthfeel. Fruity start, with light yeasty bread flavour, light spices and citrus in finish. Nice stuff.

Tejas (928) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Wow, a beer that lives up to itís hype. Very well balanced. Nice finish. Very pleasant taste. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Well done unibroue. This one makes it into the regular rotation.

silvorgold (31) - Brandon, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 4, 2004
I tried this beer back a few months ago hearing that Unibroue makes some of the best beer in Canada, itís a high percentage beer, but I didnít really like it, it has a really sweet taste which reminded me of black licorish. Itís easy to get drunk off this beer, but just not my cup of tea, or in this case, glass of beer.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Appearance: pours a bright straw yellow with a white head, light effervescence and a slight chill haze. Head retention is low and the lace is full and sticky. Aroma: tart, hoppy, fruity esters and bubblegum. Taste: smooth and sweet and peppery with a hop bite and a dry tart finish. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, creamy, smooth, crisp, low in effervescence, and a lasting astringent bitterness. IMHO: A good representation of the style, but a Duvel beats it on many fronts.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2004
Poured in a Duvel glass looks strikingly simaler to a Duvel, golden colour with a thick white everlastiní head. The aromas are quite strong, estery, bananas, apples, pepper, corriander quite sniffable actually. the flavours are spicy unibroue yeast, apples, pepper and a full mouthfeel with a dry finish. A nice drink, well concealed alcohol.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Huge, billowy, lace, white-as-driven snow head, atop a perfectly golden, clear body. Aroma is a sweet array of fruit and spice, standing far above any other particular aspect. Delightful and heavenly. Is it "the End of the World", because it enters us into the next? Citrusy flavor stands on top, with dazzling hops and a marvelous sparkling sensation on tastebuds. Body is light, and extraordinarily uplighting. This brew handily earns itís rep as the Canadian stand-in for Duvel. A terrifically engaging, hoppy mouthfeel, and an exceptionally warming feeling make this ideal beer for any sort of celebration, such as Anniversarys, holidays, Wednesdays, midnights, 2:45 A.M.s, anytime youíre exultant that the world hasnít ended, didnít get fired, dog still loves you, etc., etc....

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 sweet fruit ester aroma, partially fogged golden/yellow color with a thin white head, spritzy banana flavor, honey, alcohol stands out but isnít outrageous, sweet and bitter, beautiful floral finish, bought this on a whim hoping it was good, knowing that b/c of the brouery it probably was, and I was not let down, even though the label represents Michigan with a horribly broken wrist.
