La Fin Du Monde

Notes added 10/02/2021

This is the beer pictured.

Still that fat, billowing, impressive head. The nose has those apple, estery Belgian yeast notes that are so, so tempting on the nose. A perfectly smooth body leads to the simplicity of a beautiful built Belgian, sweet malt bomb. It’s close to perfect, and 17 years later after that first review I would be hard pressed not to increase the appearance, smell, taste and mouthfeel scores.

The finish is wonderfully balanced as the alcoholic fruit are built up to a crescendo, and just when you think it may collect to give something too cloying, the beer drops a drier than you light expect finish. Delicious, nothing’s changed here other than my utmost appreciation for a great beer.

Original notes 07/04/2004

$4.99, 750 mL corked & caged bottle from Green’s, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Orange, cloudy pour with a frothy head. Honey colored with very lively carbonation, a small head and some lacing.

To me this beer has an extremely light feel to it despite the ABV. For that reason it is a beer that needs respect, simply because before you know it, you could have consumed a lot of pretty potent beer.

I detected a lot of honey sweetness in the aroma and the taste, and coupled with the color and the light feel, this reminded me of a little of a cream ale. To me, this is one of the least Belgian of the “Belgians”, this despite the fact there is the distinct Belgian yeast character in the background.

Very drinkable, a lovely beer.
