Unibroue La Fin du Monde

Unibroue La Fin Du Monde Triple

La Fin du Monde, meaning “End of the World,” brings, to some, feelings of a foreboding future. This however, was not the intention of the brewers. Unibroue La Fin du Monde was created “in honor of the intrepid European explorers who believed they had reached the ‘end of the world’ when they discovered North America ‘the new world’.” An exquisite Triple-style Golden Ale, a more delicious honor could not have been bestowed on these brave adventurers.

La Fin du Monde has won more International medals than any other Canadian beer; 6 platinum, 12 gold, 5 silver and 2 bronze. One sip of this 9% ABV triple and it’s easy to know why. Finish a glass and I bet you’ll be coming back for another… bottle, that is.

Let’s break it down:

Appearance: Cloudy golden sun-colored with a tall, white, fluffy head and impeccable retention. Even after the head melted away, La Fin du Monde left incredible lacing up the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Notes of orange and coriander were best represented, with a hint of banana and yeast.

Taste: Citrus and banana follow through the nose to the palate, with a much more prevalent dose of yeast. Warming alcohol is present in the finish but its flavor is well hidden. A nice spiciness in the finish adds even more dimension.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with super-tiny bubbled carbonation that breaks it up to keep it from being viscous. Besides the effervescence, which wasn’t overbearing, I found the body La Fin du Monde to be quite smooth.

Overall: Truly divine brew. La Fin du Monde is an amazing example of the style and so very enjoyable. I will most definitely buy this again. Definitely.

Cheers to Unibroue for brewing up such a delicious Golden Ale.

    Great pictures. I like the first one, looks gigantic! Wow, so this is just a “didn’t fall off the flat world” tribute? I liked it better when I thought they were predicting something.

    As for the beer, I love it too. And actually, this brewery is so underrated altogether. Everything I’ve had is terrific. Yes, they up the ante with their signature carbonation, but they always back it up with great flavors, as you mentioned.

    Gotta go buy some of these again soon.

    Rob – Thanks! I wanted to play on the idea of impending doom, since that’s what I always thought about before reading more into it.

    I’m gonna have to get some more soon too. Tasty!

    I agree with everything hannah said. It was Tom that first introduced this to me at a Christmas party I had a couple years back. I only had a small taste of it then, but I’ve gotten it a few more times since then and loved it every time.

    Did ya save the cork? 😉

    Cheers!
