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.

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.

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 (6099) - 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.

Nice dark amber color with an off-white, tannish head. Hints of spiced fruit in the aroma and taste. Good feel.

Muddy looking Belgian style beer, with a typical strong Belgian beer aroma. Slightly sweet flavour with an alcohol kick. Overall a reasonable beer.

Fantastic! Go Unibroue! * Had this at a beer club meeting with many other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.
