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.

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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2001
Another worthy product from our friends to the North; at first I was a bit apprehensive of the cloudiness in my glass, which seemed a bit much even for a bottle-conditioned strong ale; the spicy nose is not overwhelming, but very nice. Flavor is explosive, rich, sweet -- whoever called it a weizenbock I think nailed it; bit too alcoholic on the palate for me. Still, a great beer, whatever style you want to put on it.

Better than average on the mouthfeel, but the taste was a bit dissapointing. Not as complex as I was hoping. Lots of yeast and malt in the nose and flavor profile, but nothing outstanding. Good hazy bronze color with a thick, rocky head. Quality, but nothing to write home about.

Orange in color, not as strong as some of the other Belgians, nice finish.

A great & unusual beer. For those times when you really want something different. And that label - Awesome!

This stuff isnít quite as nuclear as Fin (another Unibroue product) but every bit as good if not better. How they made this meaty a beer this smooth befuddles me. After your first sip you will sense the explosion of flavor sliding down your throat... very very good.
