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.

Nice pour, Aroma is amazing. Although this is a slightly a winey taste to it, it is complex. Hints of cloves, spices with tastes of fruits and alcohol.

Awesome! Poured in a tulip glass. Huge white, long-lasting fluffy head. Smells like yeast, fruit, malt. Taste is very nice: it's spicy, fruity, with many other complex properties. A great beer.

I, being a bit of a devil myself, was immediately drawn to Maudite, & when you're created by someone who calls themselves a name so noble and strong such as Unibroue, you're destined to be exquisite. I adore this shit. If I were to compare the hyptonizing color and shade of this beer to a crayon, it'd have to be burnt sienna. That was always one of my favorite for coloring forests and foxes. It tastes perfect, in my own prestigious and highly regarded opinion, but regardless, I couldn't begin to tell you what the fuck it's made out of, or even tastes like for that matter. Try it! Love it! Or not, I don't give a shit.

Cloudy orange coloring with an excellent spicy, slightly sour flavor. Has a nice warming feeling as it goes down.

brownaler (620) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Orange colored body with a spiciness that surronds the flavor and has a finish that is both bitter and sweet.

kathouse (1812) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2003
A complex mixture of fruit and alcohol. Color is a medium orange with a nice thick white head. Hazy from refermenting with lots of sediment. Nice lacing. Smells of apple, pear, alcohol and mild hopping are pleasant without being overpowering. Body is light and highly carbonated. The taste is fruit and yeast with a citrusy tartness that is cleansed by the alcohol. The finish is clean, crisp and dry. Reminds me of a trappist ale. A nice beer.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Hazy orange with a beautiful creamy white head. Glass lacing is very nice also. Big fruity yeasty aroma. There are hints of dark fruit, plums and cherries. Flavor is sweet up front then some cherrt and bready malt. Medium body with an outstanding mouh-feel. Just enough thick syrupy feel balanced by a creaminess all followed up by a lightly dry finish. Overall a very nice beer. One of Unibroue's better efforts.

Bottle. A light brown beer with a big white head. Wonderful aroma of apples, raisins, yeast... quite fruity. A little too carbonated and a little light in body. There's a fruity taste (apples) and a little sweetness mixed with a hint of spice before you get the alcohol presence. Finishes dry. A very good beer, but I wish it has a little more body to it.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Bottled, May 2007, 3.7: Intense sweet aroma with raisin, prune and licorice wood. Brown color, beige head, fair lace. Sweet, prune, orange, raisin, light bitter. Cloying and warming. Complex and very flavorful but if you try to rate it objectively it must be said its also a little out of balance. Bottled, 4.1: Strong apple aroma. Hazy, dark amber/brown color, beige frothy/creamy head, good lace. Sweet, lots of complex fruits (apple, raisin, grapes), nicely hopped. More than medium full body.

jgb9348 (6049) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Rich hazy amber/light brown colour with a short lived off-white head. Aroma of cider, nutmeg, alcohol, malt and a slight anise hint. Full-bodied; Super carbonated mouthful; Sweet raisin and plum flavour initially masked by an alcoholic kick and a bitter yeastie twang. Aftertaste shows some spice, but mostly alcohol. A decent beer altogether, but not as good (in my opinion) as it is made out to be. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 13-December-2003.
