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.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2012 Champagne-like carbonation. Floral, fruity aroma and flavor. Fairly sweet but with a mild spicy finish. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a solid tan head. A bit thinner bodied, and with less plum and dark fruit overtones than the Trois Pistoles. 8% but hides it amazingly well. Another winner from Unibroue.

I get fruits in the nose with this one. Some fruitiness in the taste also. Very complex. Very silky taste.

Cloudy light copper with a white head. Body of the beer looks almost like a hard cider. Nose more of fruit than of beer. Taste is banana, yeast, melon; the apples that I remembered from an earlier tasting are no longer there. Finish with a little hop, a little pepper, a little clove. I have to assume this is a wheat beer, but it is more in the style of an Aventinus then a Belgian, and I love it. More my style than the more Belgian Fin du Monde from Unibroue. A little bit bubbly, pleasant but less mouth filling as a result. Great beer.

Not bad... a bit thin, and not as flavorful as other unibroue products, and not that exciting. Decent

Maudite has a light brown color, but it is not clear it has sort of cloudiness to the beer, which makes it a very interesting site. When smelling there are distinct aromas of fruit (peaches, bananas, etc.) but with a sort of spicy hoppy smell mixed in, but whatever it is is pleasant. Then you get to taste this very complex brew and you are hit with all sort of fruit sensations and maltiness sparks as well as a spicy aftertaste. But this complex brew by Unibroue is going to be a favorite for some time to come......at least in my book.

Nice smell; gorgeous copper color. Honey, grape, orangey taste--beautifully smooth. LOVE IT!!! Champange finish.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2008 Corked bottle 750 ml, purchased at LCBO
Appearance: murky dark amber with hint of red. Large frisky creamy pillow like top. 4+
Nose: Clean nose. Blend of yeast, caramel malt, assorted fruits, Belgian spice and smooth alcohol. 7+
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied. Lighter front with blend of raw green bitterness, yeast, alcohol. Together those parts cooperate gracely. Ending in smooth Belgian strong ale way. You know alcohol is present but it’s not pushy as in many American Strong Ales. Solid brew.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2003 One of my favorites growing up in Quebec. Strong flavour and gets the whole party drunk on minimal consumption. Lovely spice and citrus flavours.

Poured a deep hazy orange. Nose is full of citrus and flowers. VERY effervescent on the palate. Flavors of orange, clove and maybe a bit of cinnamon. Not too bitter. Very "even" drinking beer.
