Pours a dark red/copper color with a two large fluffy head that slowly fades to a nice cap that never fades away.

Smell is somewhat subdued cherries, figs and spices.

Tasted better than the smell indicated. Caramel, cherries, yeast with a slightly peppery finish. There's not much bitterness to this beer, and you hardly get any alcohol feel to it. This one goes down very smooth.

Old Review
12oz bottle I got at a gas station down the street from the resort I am staying at here in Quebec. Poured into a wine glass.

A: Pours a hazy light brown that has orange notes when held to light. Had a nice white head that diminished to a frothy ring and spotty top cap that produced some nice soapy lacing.

S: Smells mostly of malt, a touch of hops and some fruit I can't make out. Alcohol does have a bit of a slap in the face note on the nose.

T: Taste is of malt is like a sweet bread, earthy, grassy notes, pears, apples, raisins. Alcohol is there but I think it rounds out the flavors amazingly well. Has a great balance.

M: Medium bodied brew that has some bubbly carbonation to it. Notes of apple and pear really stick to your tongue and last long in the after taste. Just a touch of alcohol burn on the back of the throat.

D: Very drinkable. This is another hit from Unibroue. Very tasty and easy going down for a big beer. The ABV doesn't hold this guy back at all. Could use a little more in the nose department but still a great beer. Prost.

I got a steal on this bottle of Maudite. Went to a little, out of the way liquor store and they had a sampler pack of Unibroue. A 3-pack of Maudite, Trois Pistoles, and La Fin Du Monde 750ml all for $16.99. The price makes it taste even better. On to the review....

Poured this into it's very own Maudite snifter. Poured an eerie super murky dark amber red with tons of very active carbonation. When held to the light it looked like the fires of Hell...Thick creamy white head that stayed put the entire drink. Left thin micro bubbled lacing with each drink.

The smell is very complex. Malt on top of malt. Caramel, bread, dough. I'm even getting vanilla. The spiciness is there from the yeast. A big deep smell even gives a hint of pepper. It's taken over by the malts though.

Now for the taste. Very complex here as well. Malts up front. Doughiness. Starts with a doughy sweetness quickly followed by the spice. There are dark fruits toward the end, plum and something else that I can't place. Very good

Mouthfeel is lively. A tingle on my lips and from mid tongue down through my throat from the carbonation.Medium bodied. Coats my tongue as I drink. A slight alcohol heat in the back of my throat and in my nose.

Drinkability is very high considering the complexity and alcohol. I had to slow myself down cause I wanted to drink it to fast. It would be an easy one to sip on all night though.

Overall Maudite is an exceptional beer. everything about it is very high quality. I try and have these in my fridge often and always try and cellar a couple but I want to drink them too badly and never get around to it. If you've never drank this before pick it up. It's a must try. If you have drank it then you know what I'm talking about.

*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 9-24-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Best Before: 02-16-09

Maudite has a reddish color and a decent amount of foam. Good lacing and carbonation kept constant throughout. Aroma is of fermented grapes, raisins, acidity, and malt. Taste is sweet upfront with some dark fruits like dates, raisins, figs, and prunes. Mouthfeel is very good as well as the carbonation.

Bottle that I purchased in September of 2006...

A - Pours a dark copper colored body with a slight haziness to it. Starts with a fizzy buttery colored head that is small. Quickly reduces to some whisps on the surface and a ring aroung the glass.

S - Tons and tons of sweet fruits going on here, with some red and some dark. Raisins, figs, cherries, mixed berries, and apricot. Brown sugar. Some sweet belgian candi sugar.

T - Fruit shines though in the flavor as it does in the smell. Big, bright red fruits with cherries, strawberries mix nicely with some figs and grapes. Brown sugar and toffee. Slightly bitter wash at the end.

M - Medium bodied. Carbonation is a bit fizzy.

D - Very nice beer. Not sure how much age has really affected it thus far. Another three in the cellar to see how things change further.

2 year old 12oz bottle.

Served at cellar temp and poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance is good. almond colored head is quite large after the pour then slowly thins out. Burnt-orange color with red hues.

Smell is good. Belgian nuttiness, yeast, light fruit and alcohol. Quite appealing.

Taste is good. Similar to the smell but no alcohol. Spicy and sweet flavors molded together nicely. Aging has mellowed out the alcohol bite and harshness for the better.

Mouthfeel is very good. Aging has also mellowed out the carbonation for the better. Lively in the mouth with a creamy texture. Nicely done.

Drinkability is very good. Once again, the alcohol and carbonation harshness has mellowed making this one an easy drinker.

Overall: Fresh, this beer (and much like the rest of the Unibroue line) has too much carbonation and the drinkability and mouthfeel suffer. Aged, this becomes quite a nice Belgian style ale and leaves a better impression. Recommended when aged.
