Unibroue "La Fin du Monde"
___________________________

Abbey-style Tripel - Quebec / All-Year
$3 / 16 oz.
9% ABV

Unibroue, from Québec, comes remarkably close to the depth and complexity of Belgian Trappist brews, and features a far wider range of styles. While all are world-class, none have been as influential as “La Fin du Monde,” or “The End of the World.” Generally classified as an “Abbey-style Tripel,” this strong golden ale combines silky soft texture with a fierce backbone of hops. Pungent white pepper and coriander aromas rise from the fluffy cap of foam. Sweet malt and dried peach flavors are balanced by a savory component worthy of a perfectly aged gouda cheese. All are reigned in and knit together by a spicy, floral hop presence and lingering bitterness that scour the palate clean. Yum.
