I recently had my beer loving uncle over for dinner, and after sampling my most recent DIPA, we got to talking beer of course. He highly recmmended La Fin du Monde. I got around to trying it tonight amongst bottling and transferring. As I bottled my hefe I wondered how the HBT community would categorize it. I haven't yet checked with the style guide, but it has
similar flavors with a hefe. Anyone familiar with this brew?

It's a Belgian tripel (although it's made in Canada).

Some people think it's the greatest beer in the world... I had one a few weeks ago and thought it was okay, not great though. I had an Ommegang Rare Vos afterwards and enjoyed it much more.

Yeah, I checked with the style guide, and it is listed as an example of a tripel. It seems very different than other tripels. It's very pale in color, sweeter than I'd expect and has a strong bubblegum note. Interesting, but not what I expected.

I didn't get bubblegum from it. Honestly I don't really remember much of the flavor makeup now. I only ordered it because it was "keep the logo glass" night.

Fin Du Monde is one of my favorite beers and I have tried cloning it in the past but with no luck at all.

I believe this is closer to a Belgian Strong Golden that to a tripel. Its a bit of a hybrid though and maybe does not fit a particular category.

It is very pale, not gold but closer to white. It is not particuarly dry and has a great honey flavour and nose. My wife gets cinnamon in the flavour and i think she may be right.
Maudite is a good beer but my vote is for Fin Du Monde.

See that's funny because I HATED the Rare Vos (love most Ommegang though) but La Fin du Monde is one of my top 5 favorite all time beers.
