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.

Hazy brown colour, huge beige-ish head which lasts for minutes; aroma of dried fruits, toffee, yeast, some herbal notes and slight alcoholic notes in the background; taste of malty sweetness, intensive fruitiness (plum, apricot), maybe some raisins, yeasty notes again, coriander and spicy-alcoholic aftertaste -cool beer!

Apparence: D?une couleur ambrée opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une durée moyenne. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt caramélisé et des notes de fruits confis. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps léger. Au goût, c’est des saveurs de malt caramélisé, de fruits confis et une touche d’alcool. De courte durée, il y a une légère effervescence et aucune amertume. Fiche technique Style: Style Belge Format: 341 ml Taux d?alcool : 8%

12 oz bottle, poured into a snifter at approximately 50 degrees F. A: Pours the washed-out gold of thin cheap honey, but pools in the glass a warm orange-amber, capped with a spectacularly frothy pale head tinged ever so slightly orangeish. It is a cloudy brew, where one can sort of see the shadowy outline of their fingers on the far side of the glass. S: Sweet caramel and candi sugar reign supreme in the nose, beneath which there are tones of citrus and herbal spices - tangerine, thyme, faint clove, and the like. A touch of banana and pear fruitiness rounds out the aroma, which has that distinct Unibroue yeast feel overall. T: Sweet, sweet beer, this is a Belgian amber indeed. Caramel malts swirl across the palate beneath waves of fruit and spice, forming an ever-changing taste as the beer goes down. The citrus presence is noticeable, sharing some time with banana and pear, while the spices form a backdrop that shifts from peppery to herbal. The finish is a rush of candi sugar sweetness mingled with the citrus and pear. The only fault I can find with the flavor profile is that the carbonation intrudes upon it overmuch. M: Very sharply carbonated, this prickles the tongue mercilessly. It’s the only characteristic of this beer I don’t particularly care for. O: Unibroue does very little I do not care for. This is part of the greater portion of their work that I do enjoy. An amber ale that focuses less on excessive hops and more on bringing out yeast esters and malt sweetness makes for a wonderful beer. It’s not their Trois Pistoles or La Terrible, but it doesn’t have to be.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Whatever complimentary spices they have added to the traditional Belgian yeast flavor, they have succeeded brilliantly. The complex, nicely balanced flavor is zesty and clean with a mixture of cloves, bubblegum and dark bread. Good carbonation, low bitterness, well balanced and very drinkable. This defines the category.

Bork (387) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Fruity, complex ale with some sweetness up front and a pleasant gentle tartness on the relatively dry finish. A little too fizzy.

Light brown, reddish with a thick light brown head. Complex mix of spice, some dark fruit, a little herbal freshness with a hint of alcohol. Mainly sweet, caramel. Creamy texture, fizzy carbonation with a long, nice caramel aftertaste.
