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.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2003
Caramel fruit and sugar sweet aroma. Hazy burnt orange colour with thick white head that recedes to a film. Sweet round full flavour with dark fruits and caramel maltiness. Alcohol makes a brief appearance but is hidden wonderfully in the huge palate of this wonderful beer. Residual and lasting sweetness. Bottle.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Quicky diminishing head. Aroma of dried fruit and slight spice. Body is thin but had a fair amount of carbonation that makes it slightly creamy. flavor of banana, dried fruit, and some light background spicyness. Very nice.

tallmatt67 (99) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2003
(bottle conditioned) Attractive orange-amber color, lightly cloudy. Immense sweet, bready malt, caramel, ripe fruit aromas. Soft Medium-full body lightened slightly by pinpoint carbonation. Leads with luxurious malt and continues with full, rich pruney, stone fruit flavors, earthy must & a slightly lactic quality. High carbonation helps cut the candi sugar-sweetness perfectly, allowing it to linger exquisitely. Wow. C'est si bon!

1more4dessert (336) - Upstate, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2003
A truely impressive speciman. Very cloudy sunset orange with a second to none pleasantly fizzy head. Multiple fruit nectars apparant in nose and mouth. Outstanding across the board.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2003
Good appearance on the pour. Similar nose to the other Uni beers but this was much better in softness and presentation. The initial impact is of honey and spice notes, followed by a fine Belgian style mouthfeel from clove and additional honey. Good lace and fine finish.

guzzler67 (1673) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Dark copper appearance. Spicy, fruity aroma with hints of cherry. Yeast and malt with some spiciness in the taste. Luscious, full-bodied mouthfeel. Smooth, mellow finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Scintillating orange-copper color and well carbonated with fair lacing. Smells like apples, yeast, candy sugar, and a hint of grass. A fruity Belgian style beer with a smooth balance of medium tartness and sweetness plus some herbal bitterness. Earthy flavors as well. Has interesting qualities that suggest a gueuze.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
This beer has a captivating bright red color with copper highlights and an off-white head. The head dissipates quickly, but lingers the entire glass and leaves a nice lace. The aroma is sweet and rather like a fine merlot. The taste is exquisite, without a trace of alcohol. Maltiness is evident, and a fruity sweetness is present in the finish. I can mainly taste ripe plum, but I am reminded of a good sweet red wine. The best (or perhaps worst) characteristic is it is a pleasure to drink.
