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.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2003 A powerful spicy fruity ale with a peachy alcohol aroma. I had a 12oz bottle and can't wait to try a bigger one. 12-29-01: I'm sipping a 25.4 oz and I don't remember rating the 12oz bottle of this. After checking the bottle pile, yes I had it before. I'm knocking the palate to a 5. Great beer, way to keep them Belgians working! Like Chimay, but more offerings at half the price.

A nice red ale. Fits well in the Unibroue product line, between the rich, strong Trois Pistoles and the clean, citrusy La Fin du Monde. Insignificant head, yeasty, winy aroma. Flavor is malty, not too sweet but finishes with a hint of sourness which detracts some from the overall experience.

Hard for my inexperienced palate to rate. An odd, interesteing beer.

Beautiful autumn gold color, a hint of haziness, nice head, fine, lasting carbonation, great aroma. Complex, interesting taste with a hint of lemon or orange, moderate malt taste. Flavor that lingers and blooms into your nose. Worth the money! A beer to savor with good friends who are worth it.

Another classic from unibroue. copper colour not much head or carbonation bittle-conditioning leaves it a little hazy. nice zesty citrus and malt sweetness tastes that disguise the alcohol content well.

Fading eggshell-brown foam quickly leaves the surface without any cover. Amber-brass color with but little bubbles. The aroma is closed, with some maltiness. The flavor is malty, of low-intensity, good foam in the mouth, medium body, a malty-yeasty taste sticks to the teeth. All in all this beer lacks complexity and intensity, but has a pleasant malty-yeasty aftertaste, and the alcohol rounds off any edges. A good effort, but...thanks Trappist Bro!

Yeast, yeast, yeast. Aroma is reminiscent of kid’s vitamins (citric acid?) Flavor reminds me of kumquats stolen in my youth. Zesty carbonation. I’m guessing that good Belgian ale tastes like this, but I have yet to find one.
