Background:
This was another birthday gift from my friend Jim. I have had this Tripel several times before but I have never reviewed it. So let’s see how the End of the World holds up to a full review.

Review:
The beer pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head.

The nose is classic Belgian Tripel with light pilsner type malt aromas, citrus notes all on a bed of yeast.

OH My! What a great first sip.

The experience starts out with a light malt sweetness up front on the tip of the tongue. That is followed by the most pleasant mid-sip experience. This exquisite ale washes over the tongue with just the right amount of effervescence and a slight building robustness of a higher alcohol beer. There is a slight hesitation at the top of the swallow but that is very short lived as this wonderful beer slides down the throat with a velvety ease. The finish is exquisite with a sweet light malt complexity, mild hops, yeasty notes and just a touch of citrus. There is a slight sweet aftertaste of yeast and light malts.

The simple elegance and subtle complexity makes that an impressive beer.

Every sip seems to give you a new experience; especially now as this beer is warming and opening up a little.

Well, this bottle is almost empty so I’m obviously doing more drinking than writing on this review.

The last few sips of this exquisite ale were at 72 degrees and it was delicious to the last warm drop.

This is a solid A to an A+. This is truly one of the best Belgian Tripels on the market today.
