I’ve tried this on three separate occasions, and I can’t do it.
La Fin du Monde tastes like old socks, and smells equally appealing. Its only merit is that it’s nice to look at. I am not impressed. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2006
12oz bottle. Hazy, golden banana hue. Large white head. Banana, clove and ginger nose. Yeasty and bready head aroma. Floral and perfumy. Smooth full and slick. Alcohol burn is slight. Initial is smooth with caramel and cola notes. Then into a grainy and citrus and dry perfumy middle. The finish is cloying and sweet. Tongue tingling. balesjas (41) - Huntington Woods, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2006
I love this beer so much. It’s got such a great mouthfeel to it. Every sip has this fantastic sweetness in it that’s not too sweet, but just right. I like this beer as well or maybe better than some of it’s genuine Belgian counterparts. A bit of alcohol in the taste, but it’s 9%, so that can be expected somewhat. Goes well with cheese.

Take your time with this one. Good color from the start, with a frothy almost meringue like head. Lots of alcohol flavor on the front, but its impact subsides. andrewfriesen (23) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2006
Outstanding beer. Looks totally amazing with a thick pillowy head that lasts. Tastes like Okanagen fruits (peach skins really stand out to me) with some yeastiness. Boozy. It’s good to have ales being brewed in Canada that are completely comparable to the Belgians.

12 oz bottle poured a light golden color with a moderate fizzy head. Nice fruity aroma with a touch of citrus. Yeasty flavor with notes of honey and citrus. Crisp, slightly bitter finish with a nice effervescent mouth feel. My favorite Unibroue so far, reminds me somewhat of RR Deification. chicagobears (482) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Hazy golden triple, white head. This is a standard triplel . Fruity esters, vanilla sweetness, pepperish dryness. Its robust and slightly sticky. Nothing here really lacks compared to other tripels, and nothing really stands out. This is similar to other tripels I have had. Not my favorite style, but I enjoy it from time to time. mkgrenwel (619) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2006
I don’t like most tripels all that much, and this is no exception. The fruity and spicy flavors are OK, but I don’t go for the thick, syrupy palate with the strong sweetness and alcohol burn. This beer is a very typical tripel. Also has some strong prickly carbonation. Flavor fades out a bit near the end and in the finish. bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Pours like gold with a white head. Nose is fruity and floral with hints of spice. Flavor follows the nose with amazingly complex fruity flavors balanced by a nice alcohol burn. Very full mouthfeel. A very good triple and about the best you’ll find that isn’t brewed in Belgium. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a very cloudy orange body after swirling the bottom third of the bottle with a fluffy white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with lots of wheat, bubblegum, alcohol, and pepper. Intense fruity and alcoholic flavors over sweet malt, spices and yeast. Mouthfeel is full bodied and chewy in consistency. Intense fizzy classic Unibroue style carbonation. A nice enjoyable "classic" of the Unibroue lineup. I could do with a little more of a subtle alcohol apparency though.
