Beer Review: La Fin Du Monde

Over the weekend, The Hubbster and I gave La Fin Du Monde a try. 

First impression: very wheat-ey. Mild. Slightly has a citrus hint. Bitter aftertaste, but in a good way.

Very similar in flavor to that gnome one I reviewed earlier in the weekend — what was it called, La Chouffe, I think? 

Very nice for a summertime drink. Light and crisp.

I’d give it an 8/10.


Beer Review: Unibroue Terrible

Today we took a trip to World Market to get a birthday gift for a friend.

Which (naturally) means I get to buy a pint of beer to try!!

The choice for today is Unibroue Terrible.  

Wait – is that a Unibroue or a mustache? It’s both.

It is described on the bottle as, “Bottle Refermented – Dark Ale on Lees Ale Brewed with Spices”. What does that even mean? I don’t have a clue.

I can tell you what I do know:

I like it. It is very dark in color but not so strong as I expected. It has a hint of fruity tang with some veiled spices in there. Possibly some vanilla?

Here’s the odd bit. I liked it more on the first sip than the last. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I came to DISlike it — but for some weird reason my mouth went from I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!! to … meh.

All in all I would give it a solid 8. Definitely satisfying enough that I wouldn’t want to have more than a small glass. 

Plus, what a great name!
