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.

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 (2695) - 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!

What a wild flavor. Kind of citrusy with a sweet aftertaste. Smooth but not a guzzler. Definitely another fine product from Unibroue. ;)

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 First off, all i can say is grapefruit. Would that make this a good morning beer ? Powerful, flavorful, perfect combo for a brew.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2003 I had it again recently at Jane Bond in Waterloo. I'll have to raise my rating from a 3.9 it has a certain mild spiciness that I didn't notice all those years ago when I last had it. The smell was sweet the head was huge and light light tan. It even looks like an impressive brew. I really enjoyed this one. For a strong beer it was quietly tame but it was still there. Very Smooth and sweet. It went very well with my meal which was a thick bean soup that was awesome.

Beautiful golden color. Smooth from start to finish, barely a hit of alcohol. Has a sweet aroma, hints of citrus.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Has a cloudy amber color and a spicy smell, reminds me of a wheat beer. Taste is also like a wheat with full thick spicy flavor and finishes very smooth. Overall a very good beer that I could enjoy over and over again.

cranberries and citrusy scent very little head. surprisingly clear for such a strong ale. overall tangy flavor and aftertaste, pretty noticable alcohol content. first beer for my by the fire this winter... a good one for it!
