Unibroue - La Fin Du Monde
I realize it's been a while since I knocked another Top 100 Beer off the list, so I figured that the first review of the new year would be a good time to do one. I've long overlooked Unibroue's La Fin Du Monde, probably because its widespread availability makes it a little less sexy of an option than some of the harder beers to find. Well, La Fin Du Monde, your time has finally come. At #92 on the list, Unibroue's La Fin Du Monde.
La Fin Du Monde pours a cloudy and glowing yellow color with a beautiful one finger tall foamy tan head. The aroma is full of Unibroue's signature sweet yeast with some notes of lemon curd, pale malt and spices.
The taste is largely comprised of pale malt and sweet yeast flavor, but some notes of golden delicious apple peel, clove, chalky yeast and some faint earthy hops creep in towards the finish. The 9% ABV is really well hidden and this beer is really a joy to drink. This beer may not be the most exciting beer on the Top 100 List, but it's a really great Tripel and probably the best of many good beers that Unibroue makes.
