"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."

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Cloudy straw-yellow color.Yeast and citrus notes dominate. Refreshing and fun to drink. Alcohol isn’t even noticeable. A very good beer,certainly worth having again.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2003
A very dry Belgian Tripel, not as heavy or sweet as some of them are. The flavor is refreshing, citrusy, and the alcohol is masked well. Essence of apples.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2003
This is a very drinkable belgian, but nothing about it seems to "shine" and stand out like in many other Unibroue beers. It seems pretty mediocre to me. Slight citrus and malt tastes and a dry finish. I probably won’t buy this again.

Not a great appearance, but a nice solid taste -- strong but still smooth and drinkable.

Once again the strong alcohol prescence takes away from the other positive characteristics of this beer.

Re-Rate 12/28/02: One sip of a Unibroue beer several years ago started a continuous love affair with this brewery, and the whole line of their beers, “La Fin Du Monde” was that first beer, what a stroke of luck that was for this “Grizzled Old Beer Swiller”.

As it pours from the bottle, a slightly hazy lemon yellow, the head creamy in texture, the size masterful, the color a brilliant white, as it evanesces it leaves a silky sheet of fine lace to cover the glass. The aroma of finely malted grains dominates the nose, citrus crisp, lightly sweet and a pleasure to the senses. Ambrosial start with lots of malt, the top middling in its feel with a spirited acidity, masterfully hopped, and a long drawn-out aftertaste that is dry. The 9% ABV, make this a real “Belly Warmer”, for these cold winter days and nights, a beer I love, and I always have a few bottles on hand as they age gracefully and I wish I could say the same for my own self. Ranks #282 on my current 1000 beer master list.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2002
A convincing almost-Belgian tripel. I like it better than the Allagash, for example, and possibly more than the real thing. Strong taste of yeast, but not too yeasty or bready. Lightly hopped. Deceptively easy to drink for a 9% ABV.

uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2002
This is a nice one for a lighter belgian ale. Similar in charactewr to Duvel, but less hops. Weak aroma but rich flavor. Small but enduring head.

Have heard this is similar to Trois Pistoles, but haven’t tried it yet. I like the Unibroue beers as well if not better than Chimay. The price difference isn’t bad either. The nose is a bit citric with a slight spice undertone.
