While I am a huge fan of Unibroue, I had not yet tried Maudite for some inexplicable reason.
Maudite, or "The damned one" is a fine Belgian strong ale and was well worth the wait for me.
Poured cloudy, mahogany with a small but persistent tan head. Viscous, silky lacings line the sides of my goblet.
Sweet malt, clove, pepper, coriander, bready yeast and light fruity esters make for an enticing aroma.
Sweet malt backbone with caramel, candied sugar, molasses, apple and grape esters, doughy yeast and lots of phenols and spices. The first sip starts off like a standard, sweet Belgian Tripel and then the spices and phenols smack some exciting, balancing flavors on your palate. Banana, clove, nutmeg, pepper and cinnamon mix with phenolic properties to create a spicy/bitter, crisp, semi-dry finish. The complexities in the brew are amazing given the 8% ABV and the smooth, refreshing taste. I could easily drink this by the case.
This medium bodied brew has no shortage of delightfully fizzy carbonation for an easy, pleasing mouthfeel.
Another home run by Unibroue. They craft sublime brews with stellar marketing and very reasonable prices. Maudite will easily become one of my staple selections.
