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.

DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 7, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Nice orangish-amber color with a quickly dissapating light light tan head. Somewhat of a citrus-like aroma-maybe ginger as well? Palate has very low viscosity and isnt as thick as the other 2 unibroue’s ive had. There is notable carbonation-similar to trois pistoles. The flavor matches its aroma--not too strong, but you really have to work to pick out the mild hints. Finish is pretty smooth, without much of an aftertaste. 8% Ethanol is hid quite well.(8/4/8/4/16 4.0)------- 7/28/07-------& ounce bottle. Aroma is fruity, pineapple-like, estery one which is typical of the Unibroue yeast strain. There is a moderate spiciness present in the aroma. A few sweet hints are also detected retronasally. Moderately hazy amber-copper body present with a large, frothy, creamy off-white head present. It leaves some nice lacing. Spritzy, carbonated start which seems a little lacking flavorwise. The middle has plenty of roasted malts going on with a touch of yeast’s fruity esters. Pineapple. Finishes a bit spicy and has a nice, warming sensation. I don’t know, the flavor on this seems more subdued that I would care for. Above rating is for the re-rate.

A dark honey, amber color. Some sediment in the bottom, it looks almost like thick ground pepper. The head is fairly close to pure white. Fair amount of carbonation. Yeasty aroma, with some sweetness. The flavor is fairly complex, a subtle sweetness and light mouth combine to give a well rounded ale. Again, I am impressed by the quality of the ale coming from Unibroue.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 Maudite, like most Unibroue products is extraordinary. This beer is supposedly modeled after the Belgium ale Duval, however they are different in many aspects. 1.)I think that Maudite is a better tasting beer. Coppery reddish in color, sweet fruity aroma and taste, has a great story behind the name and label. A must try beer.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2003
Orange - Brown in color. Large creamy head. Significant effervescense and a great aroma. Spicy and fruity. A good balance of hopps and malt. Noticable alcohol in the aftertaste. A good solid representation of a Belgian Strong.

3.7
pivo (2685) - GERMANY - APR 3, 2003
Sweet, fruity nose (figs?) that is kinda bread-like at times. Nice ruby-amber color and a low fizzy head with lace. Subtle toffee-ish tones are an interesting taste component. Accents of cinnamon and a quick peppery finish. Very full body and fairly complex. A good stand-alone beer - good in the evening maybe after dinner.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2003
Hazy dark orange/brown w/ large tan head. Yeast, orange peel, & coriander on the nose. Creamy feel but lots of carbonation as well. Sweet flavour w/ orange peel, coriander, alcohol. Finish is dry, mildly bitter & leave a nice little tingle.

4.1
WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2003
Hzzy red color. Smooth and creamy. Caramel, bananas, fruit. Not too heavy, leaves a little spiciness aftertaste. Goes down well.

About all I have to say about this brew is that it was just okay.I was not extremely impressed by the taste.

thedm (6187) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 The aroma of this brew was hard for me to make out. It's initial pour yielded an invigorated head of small white bubbles that left no lacing and has a cloudy light brown color. My first taste had an initial uh oh reaction but later settled into flavor that I could not identify. Not sure how to rate the taste of this brew. Not a bad taste, but not great. After a while I could taste the alcohol content of this brew. Perhaps 3 good brews in a night is too much for good ratings! Hmmmm....

3.6
3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Clear amber with a huge head. Alcoholic smell with peaches and lemons. Silky smooth but very harsh and alcoholic, feels musty. Palate is left syrupy.
