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.

Im not a big fan of this style (yet), but this wasnt too bad. Creamy mouthfeel, fruity and not as sour as some of the others.

Deep dark amber in color. Aroma is sweet with apple, caramel, raisin and spice. Taste is complex as well. 8% ABV you could have fooled me this is very smooth and drinkable. Good interpretation of a Belgian ale from Unibroue.

Mario DEer considers it as a Weizenbock and I can understand it - amber-brown colour, fine head, complex spicy, yeasty aroma and flavour, nutmeg, sweet, alcohol, honeyish and bitter, long aftertaste - a beautiful beer

Large long-lasting head covering a dark, cloudy amber body. Doesnt have the aged palate of some of its Belgian counterparts but does have a nice aroma and a slight candi-sugar sweetness. One of the better North American Belgian ales.

Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 21, 2002
It has a beautiful, strong head with a reddish cloudy colour. Malty, spicy with a beautiful bitterness.

I am begining to like Belgian ales more and more. This particular beer is full of flavor. It incorporates a spiciness with a slightly sweet fruit backdrop. True to style the flavor strengthens as it warms. Its head quickly fades leaving behind a soft lace. Slightly reddish in color with a mysterious haze. A very well made beer.

Sean and his buddy Nels rave about this stuff, but they are canoeing fiends, too, and I think the label has sucked them in a bit. It does have a beautiful, mysterious fruitiness, like Christmas cake, but I, for one, am not so sure about Christmas cake in my beer ...

Mild for a strong, but tasty. Good malt, spicy and aftertaste.
