Beer of the Week 23 La Fin du Monde

Unibroue's La Fin du Monde - I got a little excited and started drinking before I took the picture

From the label:

The excellence of triple fermentation through a blend of special yeasts gives this malt beverage LA FIN DU MONDE (The End of the World) an exquisitely robust flavour of exceptional refinement.

From my notes:

Get a whiff of the yeast and banana coming off of this beer. There also seems to be some spice and lemon in there. Large bubbled head about one and a half inches thick, leaves nice lacing (as you can see…) The taste delivers on the promise of the smell. Banana and yeast with the spice kicking in, cloves specifically. Mild hop finish with a lingering taste of spices.

La Fin du Monde is a wonderful Tripel style beer. Tripel’s are actually pale ales but because they use triple the amount of malt in the making, as well as a lot of sugar it’s hard to tell. Another thing to remember with tripel’s is the high alcohol content (La Fin’s is 9% ABV!?) this isn’t a beer to be chugged. So pop a cap and sip this beautiful drink while you watch the sunset, or the game. Whatever it is you do to relax.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
