Tales From The Cellar #1 – Unibroue La Fin Du Monde

Unibroue – Chambly, Canada

La Fin Du Monde – 9% ABV – 25.4 oz.

Purchased March 2010.  Enjoyed May 31, 2011.

La Fin Du Monde pours a hazy golden yellow with very little head and aggressive carbonation.

The aroma is a cross between Belgian yeast and lemons and citrus. It has a refreshing, crisp, clean fragrance.

The flavors lean toward the yeast, but it has a bit of the lemons, as well.  There is a slight aftertaste that shows up every few sips.  It’s not offensive, or a deal-breaker, but it’s there in the back ground.

Mouth feel is extremely carbonated, but light.  It’s just barely OK, leaning toward too carbonated.  Let’s call it ‘tolerable’.

Our drinkability is very high, even at a high ABV.  I could enjoy a few glasses of this over the course of a hot summer evening.  Given the age of this bottle, I would like to try it against a fresh bottle.  It might not be worth the time to age, but it’s a great Belgian beer!

Overall – B+
