Low alcohol beer with a fair amount of complexity
Megadeth - Tout Le Monde Beer

Personal Review
Appearance: Medium golden with a cloudiness that you can't see through but does allow light to pass. Enormous, multi-finger head with some lacing.

Smell: Yeasty with slight floral notes

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation that hangs for a moment with an herbal flavoring.

Taste: Crisp finish with slight, piney aftertaste that mellows as it warms. As a drinker with a moderate-level palette, it reminds me of the various Belgian beers I've had.

Overall: Most of the Unibroue beers I've had are well made, so your enjoyment of this one will come down to personal taste and preference. For its alcohol level, which is somewhat low for a saison, it has a fair amount of complexity and certainly wasn't made as a marketing gimmick or branding cash grab. Due to the cost, I probably wouldn't buy it as a pre-show quaff in the heavy metal parking lot; it's above that usual cheap swill. And as a metalhead, it is a nice souvenir/conversation piece. Does it befit the moniker "heavy metal beer" (does that matter)? My Megadeth aficionados say if it was one of their albums, it'd be "Cryptic Writings" or "Thirteen"--complex and slightly commercial without the anger of the early years.

Brewed by: Unibroue, Quebec, Canada - unibroue.com
Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Was originally called "Head Crusher" after the track on the album Endgame, but Mustaine was convinced to change the name. " tout le Monde" means "to all the world" or "for everyone".

A new beer from Unibroue born of the friendship between its Brewmaster Jerry Vietz and Dave Mustaine, legendary lead vocalist/guitarist and founder of heavy metal group Megadeth. Named TOUT LE MONDE as a nod to one of the band's songs and one of their biggest hits in Quebec, this beer recalls the consonance of Unibroue's flagship beer, La Fin du Monde.

Dave Mustaine became friends with Jerry Vietz during Megadeth tours in Quebec. During their time together, Dave and Jerry created TOUT LE MONDE as a symbol of their friendship.

TOUT LE MONDE ale is a flavorful Belgian style dry hopped golden saison with hoppy and spicy notes. Topped by an unctuous head, this beer will give fans a clean, fresh taste and a crisp dry finish inviting to take another sip.

Saison / Farmhouse Ale
Description: Saisons are sturdy farmhouse ale that was traditionally brewed in the winter, to be consumed throughout the summer months. Not so long ago it was close to being an endangered style, but over recent years there's been a massive revival; especially in the US. This is a very complex style; many are very fruity in the aroma and flavor. Look for earthy yeast tones, mild to moderate tartness. Lots of spice and with a medium bitterness. They tend to be semi-dry with many only having touch of sweetness. -- Beer Advocate

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
