"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."

This would be a first-rate blonde ale if its aroma and flavor werenít dominated by alcohol. As it is, itís not bad, and I prefer it to most blonde ales that Iíve tried. The taste is on the sour side, but not excessively so, and I like its yeasty qualities. It feels good in my mouth. If only the alcohol were covered better...

Blond color, with a turbolent perlage; frothy big head. It’s a quite simple Triple, with a light canned sardines aroma, a rather sweet body, some spices (cloves...), low bitterness and some alcohol warmth. The final is mellow and spicy. Drinkable.

Appearance and flavours similar to a Belgian wheat beer. Cloudy, perfumy, fruity, sweet and spicy. Difficult to believe it’s so strong.

I typically dont dont like the lighter/white belgian beers, but this is the best I have ever had. Cloudy yellow color. Smelled of sweet spice, tasted of sweet celery, nice finish.

Itís rather hard to believe that this brew contains 9% ABV. Pale, pale wonderfully pale. Fruity must and spice nose. The moment you notice the sweetness a rush of mellow bitterness tugs your buds for attention. At the íEnd of the Worldí there lies a brewery that turns out some fantastic beers, not to mention a few happy French-Canadians. Quality, Eh!

Slightly less alcohol taste is apparent in this fine beer than in the Unibroue 10. Rather winey. Good. Floaties in the beer. I liked it.

The nose off this was very nice. The typical yeast smell was present, but I got a stong characteristic of apple-cinnamon, very nice. Colored strangely orange. The apple cinnamon theme was continued in taste, and the brew finished with a presence of carbonation and a certain sweetness. In my opinion, Unibroue has always done well to make the alcohol content less noticeable, and this is s a fine example. Nice.

Well, I had to pull out my recording of Olivier Messiaen’s “Quatour Pour la Fin du Temps,” “Quartet for the End of Time,” which is simply exquisite, written in captivity and performed for the first time at Stalag 8-A in 1941, with the composer playing the piano, unfortunately, this beer does not live up to that transcendental work, this is a pale, light color, diminishing head, mild fruit and malt aroma, very slight carbonation, but I find this a pretty dull flavor, it goes nowhere on the palate, it just lies there, a kind of dry, unsweetened malt, slightly sour finish, not at all a transcendental beer, nor does it live up to the overwhelming grandeur of the title.

CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2002
Strong but watery, quite a fast paced drinker, with a frictional element. Itís got a rock-mellon, Papaya edged tinge on ambient evaporation within the oral aperture..blah, blah wank wank.. yep, we can rate beer like you too (Mr Apricot and Apples). Look itís nice, itís tastey, itís a lot better than the other beer out there and weíll have another. End of Story.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2002
Spicey, apple and pear aroma. Cloudy, golden, a few floaties. Strong sweet malt, wheat after taste. Extra zingy on the tongue. Terrific.

rauchbier (3639) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2002
UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 Bottle conditioned. Amber gold, poor head and moderate condition. Excellent heavy malt in the nose with hints of fruity jam and some background hop traces. Sweet thick malt in the mouth with a suggestion of Horlicks and a touch of good oxidation. Finish is oily with malt dominant and spicy around the edges.
