This beer will always remind me of my coworker Chris and his thoughts on Unibroue beers: "Any beer with the devil and a flying canoe on it is not something I want to drink! And their other beer, The End of the World? I mean C'mon!" But despite his thoughts on their choice of marketing I know he secretly likes Maudite, if only in the smaller bottles that don't contain as much yeast.
My bottle is the readily available 750ml variety with a cork. And even though I'm not a very big fan of Belgians, I appreciate the fact that the some French Canadians have done a very good job imitating their styles. Anyway, on with the review.
It pours a brownish ruby red. The slightly offwhite head is made of large carbonated bubbles but manages to blanket the drink all the way to the bottom. In the smell we find some sweetness, yeastiness cinnamon and nutmeg. It's instantly detectable as a belgian style beer. The taste is similar.. sweetness initially, some spice and a mild hoppyness towards the back. The alcohol and yeast are both present.
Mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and drinkability slightly better than average. Despite its strength it goes down fairly quick but that doesn't mean uncorking another is on the agenda.
