Reviewing another beer from that magical factory known as Unibroue, this time Bucky picked up a 6 pack of Maudite from the beer store. Maudite came in a 341 ml brown bottle with a production date of September 20, 2011 printed on the bottle, and was 8.0% alcohol by volume. This beer has been in my cold cellar for nearly 2 years and the usual warning applies for aged Unibroue beers...have your glass at the ready because very shortly after opening, a gusher of foam will come racing up the neck of the bottle. Discovered this the hard way!
Maudite poured a murky brown/amber colour, with plenty of small carbonation bubbles rising through the murkiness. Pouring produced about 1.5" of long lasting beige coloured foam that eventually faded to a 1/8" cap that lasted all the way down the glass, leaving some lacing and spotting as it retreated. The beer's aroma was of orange peel, spice and alcohol. Its taste began with orange...a sweeter orange at first which gave way to orange rind, followed by coriander, with a mildly bitter finish. As the beer warms its 8.0% alcohol becomes more noticeable. I would describe Maudite as medium bodied, with a crisp carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Unibroue rarely seems to miss the mark, and they have another winner here. At $14.95 for a 6 pack, equal to $2.49 per bottle, Maudite is reasonably priced.
