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.

Ginger like spices. Less carbonation and smoother than Chimay. Nice job canadians.

bgarrigus (36) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Strong and powerful, just like a Unibroue should be. Tangy yet sweet flavor, and I tasted a little bit of smokiness in there. Good complex taste with a low bitternes.

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Beautiful color, and aroma. Lots of flavors, from malt to sweet to fruit. A little too much alcohol flavor but all in all a great beer.

Dorwart (2519) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Great big head typical of Unibroue products. Nice and creamy on top with tons of carbonation. Aroma is semi sweet and malty and perhaps a big of green apple. Color is a medium amber orange. Flavor is a little thick and syrupy but quite tasty with more malts, a bit of caramel with a hint of alcohol. Finish is creamy smooth with a nice alcohol warming and a noticble yeast taste. Low bitterness. A very fine belgian ale and another great product from Unibroue.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2003
Caramel fruit and sugar sweet aroma. Hazy burnt orange colour with thick white head that recedes to a film. Sweet round full flavour with dark fruits and caramel maltiness. Alcohol makes a brief appearance but is hidden wonderfully in the huge palate of this wonderful beer. Residual and lasting sweetness. Bottle.

Quicky diminishing head. Aroma of dried fruit and slight spice. Body is thin but had a fair amount of carbonation that makes it slightly creamy. flavor of banana, dried fruit, and some light background spicyness. Very nice.
