Does anyone else find that although all of their beers are a different style they still all taste very similiar? I've attributed it to the yeast. I don't know what they use but I wouldnt be surprised if someone told me it was the same yeast in all their beers.

It is the same yeast most likely, there's a wyeast strain that is the Unibroue strain.

I was disappointed by Trois Pistoles. Wasn't bad, but wasn't as good as their others. I love La Fin Du Monde, and I love Maudite. Don De Dieu is tasty (and I thought it was very similar to La Fin Du Monde). Stay away from the Ephemere Apple though. The only Unibroue beer I flat out disliked.

I got a sampler pack a few years ago and noticed the same thing. Really good, but very similar

Not a big Unibroue fan. Everytime I travel people ask if I drink alot of it as it's brewed in MTL. I just cna't get past how yeast foward thier beers are......

One of my favorites ever. Fruity, spicy, and smooth. I've got a 6er that SWMBO and I are aging til December. Can't have an end of the world party without La Fin du Monde!

You know, I never bothered to think of what the name translated to. That's not a bad idea!
