Unibroue La Fin Du Monde Tripel: This particular beer is one of the beers that really opened up my mind to what a beer can taste like, it’s been around for a while and was one of my first true craft beers. Despite being owned by Sleeman’s aka Sapporo, the Unibroue beers still stay true to the craft beer culture in terms of quality and are re-fermented in the bottle for carbonation. This particular beer has won a multiple awards over the years and I like to grab one or two every year or grab multi-pack cases for beer to serve at home when guests come over. It is brewed at a strength of 9% abv with 19 IBUs and has been a year round offering since 1994.
Aroma and Appearance: This pours a cloudy copper with two fingers of foam and lots of carbonation. The aroma is sweet with coriander seeds, banana chips, lemon citrus, stone fruit and pears.
Flavour: This is an effervescent beer with a light mouth feel that has notes of banana, coriander, green grapes and a finish that has some spice and a lingering sweet pear aftertaste. I am still floored how yeast can create such amazing flavour when it ferments barley sugars.
Overall Impression: Always a good choice, love it.
Rating: Excellent at 8/10, still a great beer and stands up to the market as is.
Food Pairing: I would pair this with cheesecake if I had some, the fruitiness would be wonderful while the higher alcohol and lighter mouth feel would bring out the creaminess of the cheese.
