4.1/5 rDev -2.6%
Aroma: Delicious, bold, savory aroma. Caramel, molasses, lots of fruity esters, banana, clove and spicy phenols. Malt is mostly Munich and pale. Some European hops (highly floral) blending with the mild alcohol.
Appearance: Color is deep copper, mildly cloudy. Head pours a moderate height and is light brown in color. Moderate retention and good lacing. Lots of yeast at the bottom of the bottle.
Taste: Lots of yeast character, floral, banana, and a good dose of clove. Good darker malt flavor, a tiny bit worty. Some mild darker fruits, mostly plum and dates. Mild floral hops. Mildly sweet and just slightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Moderate carbonation, very small bubbles can be felt on the way down. The finish is not dry. Oily overall.
Overall: Lots and lots of clove, which is odd for this style. Still good, light on the dark fruits. Great mild yet savory aftertaste.
Notes: Drank on 4/24/2012. Date on bottle 1/13/2014.

Poured from a 12oz bottle (Best Before Date: 12-01-14) just below cellar temperature into a 22.5oz Libbey Citation Snifter (8409).
A- Pours a deep-hued ruby red with a full, 2-finger off-white head which
S- Quite intense floral bouquet accented with red apple, pear, green grapes along with some spiciness. As the brew warms I am getting notes of lemongrass.
T- Like the nose, it is quite complex. Similar to the nose, ripe fruit flesh up front followed by notes of darker fruits like raisins and dates. Mid-palate gets a dose of orange citrus and it finishes with a dry, citrus rind bitterness...leaves you simply wanting another quaff.
M- Medium body with a delicate (but ample) carbonation gives Maudite a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Just right.
O- Like the ratings suggest...simply awesome and another homerun for Unibroue.

Poured from a bottle into a signature Unibroue Maudite snifter. Pours out a beautiful coppery-red clear color with a nice 2-finger head that dissipates pretty quickly. Lots of fruit on the nose. Getting apples, pears, berries, and a nice yeasty, biscuity smell.
Firm mouthfeel, lively carbonation, and all-around excellent flavor. The first thing I pick up on is the fruitiness from the nose is right on the tip of the palate. After an initial fruity, biscuity sweetness, the flavors recede a bit. It's almost as if they are overcome by the carbonation. Then at mid-palate, some of the fruit comes back, only it's much dryer and champagne-like than before. The beer seems slightly tannic and mouth-drying as you swallow and the dry fruit flavors linger a bit.
This is an excellent beer from an under-appreciated brewer. Fans of abbey-style ales should definitely give it a try. Those who have had it should revisit it from time to time.
