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.

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.

FtWorthBrew (105) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Reminds me of a cross between Trois Pistoles and a nice red. Not bad but not particualrly great. I would rather have one or the other not both.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Ruby brown appearance with a white bubbly head. Smelled of coriander. The taste was of coriander and lemon which also included fruits. My favorite of the Unibroues I've had.

EKGoldings (632) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2003
I've had this many times in bottles both in Montreal and the USA. A really complex beer with dry fruit, malt, yeast and honey nose, taste is complex and finish long. A perfect beer to sip by a fire on a cold winter's night.

I got this in a grab bag. Interesting flavor, has a hint of orange. A beer worthy of The Dean.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2003
Probably my favourite Unibroue beer (along with trois-pistoles). A nice colour and a nice head. The aroma is yeasty, fruity and spicy. A good texture and a taste of yeast, malt and spices.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Nice appearance, medium brown with a pretty, lasting, creamy head, a bit of haze. Aroma was unremarkable, just some Belgian yeast and sweetness. The flavor was also unremarkable. Nice, balanced, vaguely Belgian in nature, but nothing really jumped out beyond a house yeast flavor. Although I like the Unibroue yeast (reminds me of the DT's yeast), it isn't enough of a flavor to base a beer around. Well made, but sort of boring.

adwoan99 (244) - Ft. Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Pours dark brown, with a creamy off-white head. Quickly diminishes leaving no lacings. I smell sweet malt, and some chocolate. Tastes a little bitter, but the alcohol content is very well hidden. Mouthfeel is smooth, goes down easy. Overall very nice - haven't enjoyed a beer this much in a while.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Mellow-smooth palate, light aroma and sweet apple-citrus flavor. A fizzy, delicious treat.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 28, 2003
Gorgeous ruby read body with sparse hints of yellow, below a full, white-meringue head. Smells starchy. Inhale a little deeper and yeast, clove, sweet fruit, spices, even a little citrus register in the nasal cavity. Creamy feel in mouth, with just the right amount of carbonation. Taste starts bready/doughy then exposes some fruits like apple and some lemon, accompanied by clove spice and cinnamon. Aftertaste is malty, with more yeast and wateriness. Decent beer, almost worth buying just to see its dazzling color.
