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.

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.

Sweet flavor, a bit stronger alcohol wise than most beers I drink. its a little too bubbly for my taste but other than thats its an excellent beer, can only drink 4 at most.

Radek Kliber (6491) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 15, 2002
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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Poured golden brown with a medium, bubbly head. Started with a sharper fizziness that mellowed later. Fruits tasted were grape and cherry in the malts and some citrus/orange peel and spiceyness/corriander. A nice hop contributed dryness and balance. This is devillishly good. (My 666th rating on Friday the 13. 12/13/2002)

Indra (2621) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 11, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2003 Incredibly appetizing fruity, musty, yeasty aroma. Tap version shows some even more pronounced banana and spice. Opaque medium red-brown color with some sedimentation and robust frothy head. Carbonation is quite suiting, just lightly bubbly and creamy. Initial taste is intensely fruity maltiness, followed by a slightly tart/spicy and fruity, yeasty aftertaste. Hops are somewhat subdued, leaving the malt blend to dominate. This is by no means a bad thing, the malt flavors are very nice and offer some complexity. Just a solid Belgian style beer.

Another ridiculously rich and complex ale from the geniuses at Unibroue. Very spicy. Orange/gold, with a copious Belgian-style head.

lovely layered citrus and spice. extrordinary and complex. Had the bottle first (impressive) then the keg (even more so). Kudos Unibroue!
