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.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2002
Rustlike color with a cloudy/yeasty appearance and a good deal of lace. A very quiet nose with some bready notes. No real hop nose. Spicy feel witha subtle hint of hop bitterness that cleans itself up by the end of the sip. Somewhat citrusy orange flavor with a hint of raisins and maple sugar.

Another world class contribution from Unibroue. Reddish amber color, thick beige head of foam, tornado of carbonation. Apple-plum in the nose, pepper spice, coconut and faint mustiness. Slightly spritzy palate, grips at first then just slides its way through with ease. A sweet red apple fruitiness is the first note in the flavor blanaced by a mild spice mid-palate. Suggestions of pineapple juice and candy sugar arrive as the beer warms.

Opaque chestnut colour, highly carbonated. Strong malt taste but bitter & spicy, not sweet. Very thick. Strong tasty & brown but not complex.

has the spicy aroma of a hefe, but the similarities stop there....slight bit of bubblegum and spice in the flavor as well....interesting brew

CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2002
Looks like swamp mud. Kind of fruity sweetness like Amarilo. Another medical experiment. Reasonably speedy drinker...if you donít wanna wait for the taste. Smooth Transitional Honest Palate. The AB (AfterBelch) stinks.

I started drinking this when North Coast stopped making Pranqster for a while. It was a decent alternative but Iím glad to see the Pranq back.

Enjoyed the aroma more than the taste. The spiciness of it prevented me from enjoying this one more.Overall though...not bad.

Nice mild amber color and cloudy. Nice to see it true to style. A little hint of lime and banana at the end. One of the better Belgians I have had.
