Unibroue La Fin Du Monde Belgian Style Triple Ale

Hot on the heels of the Megadeth-branded stablemate, this beer is clearly showing that the corporate vision for what bottling should look like is needlessly flourishy with the aluminum foil top and rather bland, plain topographical map of ... Belgium? Sideways France? Whatever ... in a circle on the label.

In good sunlight, this is orange-gold, but it is murky as the political process. The white head leaves a fairly thick, patchy cap that is pretty solid and reliable. The aroma was noticeable from the moment I started to pour - dusty malt, oranges, and bread simply spread out from the top of the beer as it is dumped into the glass.

First sip is orange and bread with an interestingly funky yeast and a very odd kind of dry trail-off. This is clearly a complicated beer, but I don't know that it would be all that bad to sip all day. With an ABV of 9%, that might be the best thing to do, but swigging is the way I do things, and I suspect it will result in a better overall score for this beer.

Tip-in is bread and funky yeast with noticeable carbonation burn around the front of the mouth. The middle is a strangely calm bread (without the funk) and orange with notes of apple and grapefruit in for good measure. The finish is a hit of tart and a smack of funky yeast before trailing off with a dusty, funky orange.

Bottom Line: This beer does funky yeast right.

4.0/5
