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.
