Leapbeer Review #48 De Ranke Guldenburg Abbey Beer

This is a strong abbey beer that they suggest you drink out of a tulip glass (see pic). It pours to an opaque amber,and presents some fruity notes on the nose. It has a lot of sweetness on the palate, but it doesn’t linger (thankfully). A strong ABV of 8.5% is balanced by a 330ml serving.

I’m not really in love with this abbey beer, the darker ones I had earlier in the project were better

Leapbeer Review #47 La Fin Du Monde by Unibroue

So this is a triple fermented beer from Montreal based Unibroue. It is advertised as “liquid gold”. I don’t necessarily agree with that, it’s far too yeasty & sweet for my liking. It’s not terrible, but I’d much prefer it to be heavier on the bitter aspect (which is almost nonexistent in this ale).

It’s a big bottle ale, that is a 9% high test. But it’s corked and nearly impossible to reseal. I wouldnt turn one down in the future, but I won’t be seeking it out either.

#47 is La Fin Du Monde
