UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 (Re-Rate) I try to like this beer, hence my third re-rate. I was rather harsh the first couple of times and I am learning to appreciate ’La Fin du Monde’. Pours a thin pearly white head with a slightly cloudy, straw body. Looks beautiful. Thick carbonation. Aroma of lemon, honey and yeast. Bold and powerful dry taste. Getting to like you! (Original) Its like openning a bottle of turpentine. With all the alcohol in this beer it is hard to taste anything else. Originator to the term: Death by 6-pack. I can’t fathom why Unibroue makes this when they have so many excellent Quebec products. (Score 1.9)

i’ve had this several times but never in the circumstances to rate it. it is a hazy hefe light peachish color but that’s where the story ends, no banana bubble gum flavas goin on heyah. ok, maybe a tad bit of bubble gum. or juicy fruit? and even though you can’t really taste the alcohol you just KNOW it is strong cuz it hits your tummy in a warm whammy. (hubby said "ew, this is strong" so i might be mistaken about being able to taste the alcohol. then again, he likes bud.)

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 poured clear but settled in a schoolbus glow with big and little bubbles alike partying on top..
aroma spoke in showers of spice..coriander & nutmeg surrounded in orange peel forests and blizzards of cinnimon
aroma was a complete foreshadowing of the flavor except for the slight alcohol burn...a tad chalky in texture..overzelous carbination...turns to week old orange juice in the finish..average over spiced belgian

Very classic Belgian ale. Light hazy lemon color, much like lemonade. Oranges and light fruit, spice, and alcohol. Dry finish. The alcohol is really strong throughout, which some may not enjoy as it sits on the palate. For those that like stron ales this is worth checking out.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a big white head. Very smooth flavor with a nice balance of hops and malts. Has a dry and somewhat spicy finish that is very nice. Unibroue brews may be the best things to have come out of Canada.

Giant white head, tons of carbonation. Hazy pale golden hue. Bell pepper aroma as indicated by the mighty Oakes, as well as light spice, light fruit, orange. Alcohol is evident, malts are nice, light to medium bodied, big fruity body, and pepper and dry in the finish. These guys are excellent, im always impressed. The larger cork finished bottles are always better, they mellow and meld flavors nicely with age. WOOOHOO!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Misty golden color with a gurgling, frothy head leaves a sparkling mesh of lace sliding down the glass. Yeasty citrus aroma with clues of spices. Floral(roses?). Sweet malty flavor with a touch of tropical fruit and cloves. Mild hops and talcy faintly dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2004 Rerate Bubblegum sweetness is the most prominent flavor coming through this time around. Still damn good, tastes have just refined a bit in the last two years. Original 4.0 Second of the Unibroue's that I have tried - even though it has 9% ABV - it hides it well. Clean, fresh, fruity aroma, bubbly, champagne-like appearance. Good mouthfeel - wakes your tastebuds up with its crispness and spiciness.

Amber, hazy, colour. head doesn’t last long. Yeasty, slightly acidic, with a touch of toffee, aroma. The flavour reminds me of a way too strong Witbier. It gave me a heartburn!
