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.

bierkoning (12075) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2003
Bought in Brouwerij De Schans. Orange color, cloudy. Fresh malt and orange aroma. Sweetish flavor with orange, malt and a hint of sourness. Peach and a hint of licorice. Some alcohol. Lovely fruity flavor. Easy to drink, but the alcohol is everpresent. Good beer, easily to be confused with one of the better Belgian strong ales.

This is an excellent beer from Canada. As are all of the Unibroue beers that I have tried. You can taste the alcohol but the richness of the beer is the key

omhper (22896) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy ruby colour, creamy head. Yeasty fruit aroma with a hint of red berries. Rather sweet with beautifully soft texture. Rich and malty with toffee and crystalized sugar. Mild, drier finish. A thoroughly balanced beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2003
Pours a nice reddish-brown with some ivory head. Lots of fruity, slightly alcoholic nose. Malty flavors of fruit, a little yeasty. Pleasant palate, nice finish, with good lace. A pretty good Belgian.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Do not get me wrong I enjoyed drinking this, but I have to admit I was expecting more and was somewhat disappointed. Pours a really nice cloudy, hazy off color orange, with a small ring of froth around the edges. This is definitely one to let warm up before you drink it, otherwise you will get nothing out of it. Has a slightly wet, doughy, wet cardboard taste if you do not. Otherwise, lots of cherries and plums, very doughy, with some hints of ginger and cinamon in the aftertaste. Slightly sweet but not enough to be annoying. A very calming beer, that is nice to sit out on the patio and relax with.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2003
75 cL bottle, tulip glass, 50 degrees. Frothy, off-white head rapidly diminishes (on the first pour only for some reason...) and sits on a deep, hazy, red-orange body. Heavy cobweb and earthy yeast; citric (orange) hops; caramel and toasted wheat bread malt; corriander, ginger, apple and pear aromas round out the nose. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter finish. The flavors are a little cluped up to begin with but they sort themselves out in the finish. Medium body, velvety almost creamy texture has a late drying effect, and fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: warming, spicey, a great beer to chill with.

WTF is up with the flying canoe on the label? sadly, the beer isn't horrible enough to say that they despise the beer so much they're defying the laws of physics to get away from it, but that's not the case. this beer is actually pretty sorta good. It has a cloudy orangy color to it with a yeasty flavor that had a spiciness to it. out of Unibroue's hugely overrated products, this one is one of the better ones. not amazing, but better.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Rusty gold in color with a nice bite from the 8%abv. Smooth, though and flavorful. Gorgeous bottle, a must have for any label collector. Excellent beer overall.

egajdzis (5943) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Poured a dark golden color, some dark sediment in the glass, with a large off white head that quickly diminished and left slight lacing. Fruit and yeast mixes with a sweet aroma. The taste was sweet and citrusy, but not as in a citrus hop taste. Goes down very smooth, you can’t tell this is 8%.

Orangy-brown colored with an off-white head. Plenty of fruit in the aroma with hints of malt and yeast. Flavor was fruity and slightly spicy. Very smooth. Another solid beer by Unibroue.
