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.

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.

I had this beer with thanksgiving dinner. Very little head with pretty amber-redish color. Tasted of fruits. Very good for a nice thanksgiving dinner.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Another very good beer from Unibroue, cloudy amber apperance, nose has a hint of raisins but good carbonation and four fingered frothy head that leaves a fair lace. On the sweet side but just barely. High ABV but no alcohol burn. $4.99 for a 750ml bottle.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2006 bottle-really not my thing, but im not going to give it to low ratings. i just cant get into these fruity belgian beers. I try and try and they dont do anything for me. ReRate-tap-wow, what a difference! Very nice belgian character here with lots of dark fruit, esters, spice with a wonderful lush palate. The bottle doesn’t do this beer justice.

Orange caramel colour, practically no head. Yeasty aroma, lots of citrus, some strawberry under-tones. Tastes malty and fruity, particularily lemons. Carbonation complements its smooth flavour. Bottle.

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Light, hazy orange color on bottom which fades to dark brown on top, covered with a thick medium off-white head. Smells of straw, walnuts, tea, and slighty of green apple. Initially tastes like sweet thick syrup with corn and a slight cherry flavor. Intense alcohol taste, but not strong or overpowering.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2003
UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 Cloudy orange in color. Too cold to drink when I first got it out of the cooler, but once it cooled it was good. Thin body. Pleasant flavor. Enjoyable.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2003
UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 Rating update, 4/28. Tap @ Andy's. Mkobes gave me a good sample of hers. Big Maudite snifter. Nice fruity aroma. Flavor is an the sweet side, and malty. Better than the bottle that I had, so I have upped my rating slightly. Cloudy orange color. Pleasant, fruity aroma, with notes of raisin, and other mixed dried fruit. Thin body, pleasant fruity flavor. Notes of carmel. Overall not bad, but have had better for the style.

One of my favorites from Quebec's Unibroue family. Another one of those incredibly complex beers (in taste and aroma) that goes down suprisingly smooth. NOT for the beer-beginner and not for the faint of heart (re: lightweights!) This appley, orangey, peachy, malty ale makes me all warm and cozy. A great label too (which is too often the kiss of death for good beer!) Nice, sweet finish too!

3.7
BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 Burnt orange/amber colored and a bit hazy. Very little head, just a slight white film floating on top. Very nice and attractive aroma of berries and sweet malt with a definite yeast undertone. Sharp crisp mouthfeel and not quite as smooth as some of the top Belgians I’ve had. Flavor is on the sweet side and malty with a sugary finish. Decent beer that I’ve overlooked. Definitely worth a re-visit.
