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.

Deep amber color with a voluminous light tan head. Ton of fruit blended with orange zest, coriander and white pepper. Dry honey finish. that lingers. Warming and pleasant.

Rich copper colored, huge coarse head on pour. Noticibly malty, high ABV covered reasonably well. Touch of bitterness. Good ale overall, however I preferred the sweet, golden La Fin Du Monde. For some reason I am amused by the concept of a flying canoe.

Spice and apple in the aroma. Nice white head, good carbonation, appearance looks a lot like cloudy apple juice. Malty, spicy, and a hint of fruitiness in the flavor. ABV is not noticeable.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2003
This beer poured a copper amber color and formed a white bubbly head that left trace lace. A small amount of carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, caramel and spices. A flavor of malt, caramel, citrus and some spice. The finish is a touch sweet, yet astrigent. A nice Belgian.

Frank (3954) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2003 Gorgeous orange/red/brown color. Immense amounts of tiny bubbles and a slight haze make it nearly opaque. Not surprisingly, the head is a perfect half-inch and is fluffy and beautiful with staying power and sheets of lace akin to a nitro-can brew. Sourdough and yeast in the aroma with a hint of banana. Some spice up front. Creamy mouthfeel is complemented by the fine carbonation. Sweetly malty with some apple tartness. Has a definite wheat character. Yeast is a also apparent. Hops come alive as the beer warms, adding a pleasant bitterness and some citrus flavors as well. Somewhat short but clean finish. I enjoyed this down to the final remaining drop in my chalice.

This is a wonderful example of a Belgian style ale. Very similar to Chimay Red and almost tastes like a cross between the Red and the Blue.

I liked this one much better on tap than from a bottle, but it's still a very drinkable ale. Great aroma, sweet & malty body, acidic finish.

Probably the best thing going in the Unibroue line. Brownish in color with the traditional Unibroue high carbonation. Nice spicey flavor with nice bitter fiish.

Not sure if I've gotten an old bottle of this, but the flavor just doesn't seem to live up to the billing of the other ratings here. Perhaps there is something in the finish that is just unappealing to me, perhaps it was sitting around the store for a bit too long...will attempt to rerate in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2003 Nice, amber color and generous head begin this libation. Aroma is nice and fairly light. Flavor complements the aroma very nicely. Fairly light, with some spiciness to it. Good mouthfeel, as well. A fine effort, as always, from Unibroue!
