Pours golden with a two finger fading head. Aromas are of citrus and yeast. The flavor is earthy bready with a slight alcohol twinge in the finish. Very good beer, not the best in the style though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy gold color, with an incredibly effervescent carbonation driven thick off white head. Aromas of garden fresh vegetables, spicy yeast, cider, and blooming fields of wild-flowers, all waft from my glass. I am greeted by a refreshing, spicy, sweet first draught of this effervescent brew. It tingles on my tongue as it goes down. An incredibly smooth, well integrated brew, it just seems to want to be quaffed, which, is quite dangerous given a beer of this strength. La Fin Du Monde indeed!
Quite appropriately this is sharp and spicy at various points. I get note of hay, bergamot, hint of pepper, lemon, an herbal bite, and some vanilla. Overall it definitely has some interesting soft citrus notes as well as some appetizing acidity. This is an awesome brew from a currently great brewery, let’s hope it stays that way.

Hazy golden appearance with a little white head, but its fast vanishing.
Yeast, spices, apricot and peach in the nose, very fruity aroma and very pleasant.
In the flavor i can taste organge, yeast, spices and a bit alcohol. It warms your mouth and stomach, very carbonated. Very nice... Could drink this one till the end of the world!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
fruity, clove, orange and yeasty, and peach. clear golden color with a dense white head. spritzy orangy, peppery, apple and bubblegum. alcohol pepperiness and heat, but not overly alcoholic tasting. maybe a little overcarbonated for a trippel. more like a saison than a tripple.

Well, think I may well have tossed my original rating in a fit of frustration over my kumputter locking up.(perhaps it’s playing the xenophobe, as I was making kind statements about Canada) Nice beer, this. Peppery for sure and with other elusive (to me) spices. Very flavorful and complex.

The choices were Budweiser, Yuengling Porter or La Fin Du Monde at my brother’s house. Obviously I went with the Unibroue. This is a cloudy golden bodied strong Belgian Ale with a light head and a yeasty aroma. Initial taste is smooth finished with a zesty bite. Very enjoyable strong ale.

bottled barley beer festival III: this poured hazy yellow with a small white head that was gone pretty quick. nose was banana wheat. taste more of a wheat...saison feel. good full bodied beer. alcohol was well hidden. there was a hot chick drinking this stuff at the booth and she was ethrolled with the fact that it was 9% but you couldnt tell. ’easier to get drunk without peeing so much’ she said. maybe this is the reason for drinking higher alcohol beers...?
