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.

It’s been to long since I had this beer to recall much other then I liked it so much that I went out and bought more. Good tasting and a bit spicy.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 Hazy, amber hue. Small, frothy, white head. Mostly lasting. Decent lacing. Heavy on the malt, but balanced nicely with the hops. Citrusy and fruity in the nose. Full-bodied. Fizzy. High ABV is well hidden. Creamy/oily mouthfeel. Slightly sour and spicy. Finish is spicy and slightly sweet. Aftertaste has an almost clover honey-like flavor to it, yet slightly sour and bitter. Great beer.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2002
A good, solid Belgian. Nothing super complex about it - flavor and aroma is fruity and yeasty. Good balance, a little on the sweet side.

The color is like unfiltered apple cider: Opaque brown with a hint of orange. Apple and grape aroma. Apple grape, clove and slightly bitter taste. Very nice.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Beautiful peach amber with a head that poured too thick. Lovely woody aroma, and while the flavor has this woody/piny characteristic as well, it has a sugary residue (piny/syrupy) infused within it to the point of being cloying.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Med brown color, small head. Heavy malts and hops, malts are slightly sour and spicy. Large body. Mouthfeel is fluffy (carbonated). Finish is spicy and slightly sweet. Aftertaste has an almost perfume-like sweetness to it, yet slightly sour and bitter. Very different beer.

I had a couple of that one and it was very good. Nice spicy (but not too mutch) taste. No Unibroue best one but still very good !

Did I say that Canada can’t produce a good beer?......well, I take it back. This really surprised me. Beautiful cloudy orangey brown with a nice head; I smelled this for the first time and was kind of confused, thinking maybe I misread the label and the distributer was Quebec and the Brewer was out of Belgium, but this is truly Canadian. A bit overcarbonated, but this is only a problem because it slightly masks the wonderful flavor. Tastes of fruit, cloves, and alchohol. Very, very nice....Canada, you’ve been saved. Did I mention how much merit there is in a label as cool as this one. One of my favorites.

Mario D’Eer considers it as a Weizenbock and I can understand it - amber-brown colour, fine head, complex spicy, yeasty aroma and flavour, nutmeg, sweet, alcohol, honeyish and bitter, long aftertaste - a beautiful beer
