Alcohol taste seemed more apparent in this beer than in the others from Unibroue. Aside from that it was still excellent; nice and cloudy, with spicy and fruity notes. And a kick ass label as well. npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2001
A good, but not great, take on Belgian strong. Lacks the complexity of the better Belgian ales, but is still damn good, with a fruity flavor balanced out by a nice yeast character and a hint of spice. There's an alcohol taste there, but it's well-balanced in the mix. booyaatribe (453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2001
I had high hopes for this one,
but it let me down. Lacked the
complexity and the punch of Belgian
ale. fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - JUL 24, 2001
Dark amber to copper, foamy to frothy head. A slight bitter, alcohol taste pervades, but in a good, character building, way. Has a pronounced spicy/herbal taste, mixed with a light fruityness. La Maudite means 'The Damned', I hope to be damned more often. Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - JUL 24, 2001
Cloudy brown with a thick, white head. I couldn't quite place the aroma, so I settled upon plums, with a noticeable alcohol presence, and a touch of cloves. The flavor followed suit, slightly spicy and reminiscent of plums. No negative qualities. Excellent brew. 'La Maudite' means 'the damned'...great name, huh? Definitely some of the best Canada has to offer (in the states anyway).

Pretty, dark color with some fruit in the nose and sustained foam. Carmel and yeast in the effervescent body. Tastes stronger than 8%. I'm sorry to say but this has begun to define a new class for me -- 'Belgian-By-The-Book' -- excellence diluted by replication. daboskabouter (1469) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2001
Great beer. Moments of fruit and moments of choclatey sweetness. A terribly easy to drink 8 percent. Kenadian99 (13) - Wheeling, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2001
As close as, or equal to the best Belgian strong ales brewed in North America! P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 23, 2001
not as warming as I had expected, malty with fruity spicy notes. ........... dins (266) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2001
Nicely balanced Belgian ale. Citrus notes and spiciness. ..................
