COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In November 1992 Maudite (the damned one), was the first strong beer to be distributed in Quebec grocery stores. Maudite is a mahogany-colored, rich-tasting premium beer that has a distinctive, complex taste. Because of the warmth it releases, this strong character beer must be served cool but not cold. Perfect with pasta, red meats, stews and spicy dishes, it also makes a good aperitif and after-dinner drink.
Maudite has a typically Quebecois name that is reminiscent of the legend of the Chasse-Galerie (the legend of the Flying Canoe). Legend has it that a group of lumberjacks struck a deal with the devil to fly home in their canoes, guided by Satan himself, to make it home in time for Christmas.
Gold medal winner in 1995 and 1996 and the Chicago Beverage Tasting Institute.

Beautiful golden color. Smooth from start to finish, barely a hit of alcohol. Has a sweet aroma, hints of citrus.

Has a cloudy amber color and a spicy smell, reminds me of a wheat beer. Taste is also like a wheat with full thick spicy flavor and finishes very smooth. Overall a very good beer that I could enjoy over and over again.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 a garbage bag of melons, leather, and squash turning a glowing orange in brilliance as it sat with limited lacing of atmospheric designs...starts thin palated but grows thicker from the seeds of its Belgian influenced yeasty existence...tartness plays of the yeast which in turn plays of the spice injecting a lingering sweetness that creeps along the entire experience…a strobe effect of orange peel, yeast, and cumbersome spicing finishes you off.

Little bit of an alcohol aroma - but still fruity. Pour was nice and thick and appearance was thick and cloudy - that of a dark fruit nectar with a thin ever present head - nice! Alcohol flavor is present throughout, but not overwhelming. Nice fruity flavor. Reminds nme of Bezelbuth - but not as overwhelming.

I have grown to enjoy Unibroue over the past few months. I purposefully held-off trying the Maudite to savor the moment. A lot of malt in the nose with some yeast clove, nuttiness and cotton candy. Acres of harvested barley must go into each bottle. This brew literally explodes with malt flavor ... the hops are forced into an Al-Queida hiding state. Wonderful rich buttery flavors, toffee, caramel. The reason I did not score this a little higher is because despite all of it’s malt complexity, this beer felt a little thin. Almost like the end gravity went too far. Still, another great beer from a fantastic brewer.

Thick, woody, yeasty aroma. Heavy spices and banana tastes permeate every taste as evidence of some earthy, woodiness comes through later on. Its VERY heavy for me for some reason as I’m discvering such a trend in the unibroue line. Point blank it just started gwtting to me before the bottle ended...over powering and an unbeleivable richness. There is a lot of sweetness in here that saturated my palatte. I give extra brownie points for the surreal label and the drunken fisherman/vikings flying through the sky in a fricken row boat.

Orange dark amber. Big orangey head. Spicy nose, herbal. Yeasty all the way through. Very nice, Im loving all the unibroue’s.
