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.

chickenflea (350) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2010
12-oz bottle. Yeasty aroma with notes of citrus, apricot, bread, and clove. Interesting appearance, cloudy amber body with a tall, smooth, off-white head. Taste is lightly sweet with a hint of sourness and just a tiny bit of salt and paper napkin. Medium body with an oily texture. Average carbonation. Long finish. This is a beer that wants company. (Can’t blame the damned for that, now can we?)

Served in a tulip glass cool, not cold, from a 750ml bottle. Definitely a spicy/fruity, sweet aroma. I cannot discern any banana, as other reviewers have noted, There’s an unusual hoppy note that I recognize from other Belgians. A repeat purchase!

Can’t remember if in bottle or tap. Warm and spiced but not over the top. Not super thick like a quad.

gegwilson (1751) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle from drinks of the World, Geneva. Quite a murky brown colour with a good cream head. Sweet toffee aroma. Fruity flavour with aniseed, port, spice. Tasty stuff.

Pours slightly cloudy amber with small-medium off-white head that reduces to attractive skim but doesn’t leave lacing. Especially closer to room temperature, the nose ranges through apple, banana, clove, pepper, caramel, dough. On the palate, there’s also orange oil, and the peppery alcohol cuts the sweetness. Creamy medium body with alcohol heat slightly drying the finish. I don’t know how these Québécois do it, but this is another argument that Canada is the New World home of Belgian _ that is, great _ beers. Pours clear pale to medium amber with one finger of pillowy off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is banana and cloves, doughy yeast, stone fruit, caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Medium body, lively carbonation, off-dry lingering spicy finish with a moderate alcohol warming. (4/5) Not a lot to say about this - a true classic, and one of the best Belgians outside of Belgium. Smooth and drinkable despite the higher ABV, which manifests as a pleasant warming. (16/20)

Medium copper colour, with a light white head. Aromas are apples, red fruit peels, bit of bread, bit of brewed coffee. Crisp palate, with a medium to light mouthfeel. More fruity tastes. And some spicey nuttiness. Overall, this is a good solid brew, but I was expecting more (haven’t had it in years and I was drunk with a dead nose and palate that time, so this is my first real review of it). Ok, but I wouldn’t run out and buy more.

popkow (295) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle and then amber foggy ale with medium tan head. Aroma of week old brown banana, rising bread and a hint of cover. Taste of gum, orange bringing some sweetness and malt finish. Nice bubbly and short sweet finish.
