Beer of the week: La Fin Du Monde

Beer score: 8.7
Web site: Unibroue
ABV: 9.0
IBU: 19
Normally I'm not a big fan of Canadian beers, but this fine beverage from Quebec brewer Unibroue can give most beers in Europe a run for their money. This is a Belgian-style ale that's been triple fermented. Pours with a cloudy gold color and has a strong wheat and fruity smell. I'd be surprised if there's not been a touch of citrus and honey added to this drink. In the drinking there's just a little too much carbonation for my liking, almost like you're drinking champagne, but it's not too bad. The flavor starts off fruity for the first sip or two, but then a strong bitter and alcohol flavors kicks in. If you are a fan of Belgian-style brews, you are more than likely going to enjoy this one. I can't quite classify La Fin Du Monde as a favorite, but it's darn close, and I'd never turn one down.


  1. You should try the other beers that Unibroue brews, they have quite the selection.

  2. Oh, I'll be getting around to them. I've heard some good things.

    Thanks for the comment.

  3. Unibroue's Maudite is my favourite beer. Better than Fin du Monde and Trois Pistoles, in my opinion (the only other 2 of theirs I've tried).

  4. If you are no fan of Canadian beer... is because you havent made an effort to explore them. La fin du monde is one of the most commercial type we have. When you are ready, starts here

  5. My faovurite unibroue is probably Noire de Chambly followed by Blanche de Chambly
