#176/177/188/189 La Fin du Monde

 La Fin du Monde

La Fin du Monde is a Belgian beer introduced in July 1994 by Unibroue. A Belgian-style tripel with fruity, spicy, intense golden ale with notes of citrus, cloves and banana. 

La Fin du Monde (French for "The End of the World") is claimed to derive from the European explorers' belief that they had reached the end of the world when they arrived in the Americas.

La Fin du Monde is brewed using a blend of pale, pilsner, and Munich malts, and it is fermented with a blend of three different yeasts. It has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 9% and is typically served in a tulip-shaped glass. La Fin du Monde is highly regarded by beer enthusiasts and has won numerous awards, including a gold medal at the World Beer Cup.

Yeast discussion

The Wyeast 3864 is said to be the actual yeast used to make the original but there is some discussion on whether it's the only yeast.  The flavor profile on unibroue website suggests that it has a yeasty taste so they may use a low floculating yeast for the bottle carbonation.  

This is my new simplified method to getting the New Glarus Brewing Wisconsin Belgian Red.  Using this recipe, use 2.5 gallons and a bag of Kirkland Tart Montmorency Dried Cherries in the keg.  Great beer with less effort.
