Craft Brew of the Week Award:
La Fin du Monde, Unibroue, Inc., Chambly, Quebec, Canada
Style - Tripel Belgian Ale
This complex brew pours an incredible dark yellow-orange, and has a hazy, opaque, sunset-at-the-shore hue. It's huge head fades to about 1/2" after a few minutes. This is a triple fermented golden ale with 9% ABV.
Smooth and slightly citrus flavor, with coriander and spice tones. It has a noble hop tonality, with a full mouthfeel and an impressive carbonation that feels very much like champagne.
This is one for the Holiday parties!
