Unibroue La Fin Du Monde (9/10)

Unibroue, a Canadian brewer, makes some truly excellent beers.  La Fin Du Monde is a Belgian Tripel style ale, and one of my personal favorites.

It pours a cloudy golden color, with a thick white head that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma consists of yeast and fruit scents.

The flavor is all Belgian tripel, with clove-like spice notes, a bit of tanginess, some banana, plenty of malt, and a well-balanced hops bitterness that doesn't overwhelm it.  It's an excellent example of the Belgian Tripel style.

And you don't have to take my word for it.  Beer Advocate's editors rate it 100 out of 100, or world-class, and the site's visitors rate it 96 out of 100 (also world-class).

This beer is very widely available in the Columbus shops I've visited.  I've seen it for sale at Ale Wine & Spirits of Powell, The Andersons General Store, Cost Plus World Market at Tuttle Crossing, Giant Eagle Market District at Kingsdale, Grandview Carry Out, Kenny Road Market, Palmer's Beverage Center, Weiland's Gourmet Market, Whole Foods Market in Dublin, and Whole Foods Market in Upper Arlington.

ABV: 9%
IBU: 19
My rating: 9/10
