Partial Transcript: "On Tap -- La Fin Du Monde
Hi. I'm James Knott. Today we are talking about La Fin Du Monde from the Unibroue Brewery in Chambly, Quebec, Canada. The name means "The End of the World". The company claims that this beer has won more awards and honors than any other beer in Canada.
It is 9% ABV and 19 IBUs. The brewery suggests drinking it out of tulip glass at 53-57 degrees Fahrenheit.
This beer is an Abbey Tripel. The word abbey refers to the fact that monks in monasteries originally brewed this style Belgium. Tripel signals that this is one of the stronger beers in the brewers quiver. Tripels are generally, lighter in color, with a yeasty, malty flavor. The alcohol content is usually between 8 and 11 percent.
La Fin du Monde scores a (???) on the BBA Scale. Let us know what your favorite Belgian Tripel is in the comment section. Thanks for watching. I'm James Knott and this is your Better Beer Authority."
