Unibroue La Fin du Monde
La Fin du Monde was developed through 18 months of research on a unique strain of yeast originating from Europe. It is brewed 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'. This triple-style golden ale recreates the style of beer originally developed in the Middle Ages by trappist monks for special occasions and as such it was the first of its kind to be brewed in North America.
This pours a hazy golden-yellow color, with a frothy white head that lingers and leaves nice lacing behind with each sip. Citrusy notes of lemon and orange rind immediately waft from the glass, with additional hints of fresh wheat, yeasty spice and white pepper that carry through to the palate. The mouthfeel is medium-light and approachable, with an attractive citrus-peel bitterness that stays through the finish.
