This week’s beer: La Fin Du Monde from Unibroue in Chambly, Quebec Canada.
This Belgian style tripel pours a cloudy, golden color with a lively, white head that fades quickly.
The aroma is of sweet malts, pineapple and a hint of coconut.
Its taste has a tangy, yeast flavor that eventually mellows out with hints of citrus, candy sugar and spice. It is light and refreshing in spite of its 9% abv.
The name La Fin Du Monde means “the end of the world,” but don’t wait until doomsday to try this one. It’s a really great beer from a solid brewery.
This beer is bottle conditioned so make sure you leave the last little bit in the bottle when you pour. That keeps the yeast out of your drink. There’s nothing wrong with the yeast, though, as it adds another flavor.
Pair with coq au vin or a sharp cheese.
Last week’s beer: Grapefruit Radler from Stiegl.
