Bought as part of a two pack: Maudite (the damned) with Eau Benite (holy water) for 10 bucks before tax... pretty good deal if you ask me. Also I guess you can't really find Eau Benite outside of this package so I was interested. Poured into a tulip glass and paired with popcorn. No bottling date, but they offer a drink by 08-02-15 suggestion.
A&S: When first poured the aroma is predominantly malty, with a background of fruity yeast (mostly green grapes). As it warms a surprisingly large amount of new aromas open up including: oranges, prunes, and pear tartness. The beer is a lively, but murky chestnut color. Thin ring of white bubbly head, which goes extinct after some time.
T&M: Not as malty as I would have thought from the aroma. Similar to the aroma as far a white wine grape tone, but also includes tropical fruits, apple cider, Even though 8% is on the low side of this style, i appreciate the craft of hiding the alcohol that is in this brew. Malty, caramel backbone. Mild hop bitterness in the finish complemented by some peppery spiciness (which is also present throughout but not as much so). Well carbonated, but not overdone, light but not entirely un-smooth, a bit oily.
Overall: I felt like it didn't entirely fit the style of beer (not as much epic taste and high alcohol tones as I expected), however I still really enjoyed it. I wouldn't probably buy again because this and La Fin Du Monde usually run about the same price and I prefer La Fin. Still not a bad beer to check off your list.

3.95/5 rDev -6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Undated bottle at 42 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma malt and clove
Head large (5 cm), rocky, off-white, diminishing to 5 mm layer
Body amber, hazy with occasional lump falling through
Flavor lightly acidic with clove overtones, becoming lightly sweet for a finish
Palate light to medium, oily, soft carbonation
This is an excellent interpretation of a Belgium ale and one that is ubiquitous – well worth whatever your cost is.
