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.

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 kidís vitamins (citric acid?) Flavor reminds me of kumquats stolen in my youth. Zesty carbonation. Iím guessing that good Belgian ale tastes like this, but I have yet to find one.

A spicy ale semi-sweet. Itíll go right to your nogginí. Recommended on snowy nights, or a summer bonfire in Northern Canada.

robertjm (762) - Albany, California, USA - NOV 11, 2001
VERY muted in flavor. Reminded me of a trappist ale, rather than a Beligan Strong Ale. Hadnít had it in a long time and was thinking it was something else. A little disappointed for spending $9 on a 4-pk!

FUNK (120) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2001
A very good beer, high in alcohal and expensive as shit. I think i paid over ten bucks for a four pack.

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - NOV 7, 2001
Dark amber color. Strong fruity buttery aroma. A flavor explosion in your mouth including significant malt sweetness, fruit and some spice. Heavy bodied, highly carbonated, and no overt alcohol taste. Very good beer.

Finally, something from Unibroue that didnít dissapoint me, smells great, not as sickeningly sweet as others from Unibroue.
