Beer pours a hazy orange amber with an off white head that forms a solid cap as it dissipates.

Nose is bubblegum, a hint of sweet mild orange, lemon, the slightest hint of sweet toffee. Banana and clove as well.

In the taste the spices collide with the nose. Nice yeast characteristics mixed with light citrus wheat and slight barnyard characteristics. As it warm the spice mellows and a mild caramel taste brings some balance to the previously spicy effervescence. Finish has more bubblegum.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side but velvety with a very present effervescence.

Amazingly balanced and nuanced amber belgian style.

I wouldn't say Maudite looks much better than other BSDAs, but it's definitely is appetizing. The head disappears a little quickly for my liking, but it's got a nice reddish-brown colour. The smell, however, is very complex - hints of sour cherry sit atop a strong yeast component with nice malt base. The taste is incredible and very closely follows the smell. It's perfectly balanced. Wow. The mouthfeel is great too - very dry, yet creamy. I'm lucky to have this brewery so close to my house. Since it's so prevalent around here I'll definitely be buying this again.

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best by 4/6/2014. Pours slightly hazy reddish orange color with a foamy 2 finger off white head with good retention that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of big apple, banana, pear, plum, apricot, grape, molasses, pepper, clove, biscuit, citrus peel, candi sugar, and yeast spices. Nice and well balanced aromas with good complexity. Taste of apple, pear, grape, banana, raisin, pepper, clove, biscuit, candi sugar, molasses, and yeasty spices. Lingering notes of pear, apple, grape, pepper, and yeast spices on the finish for a bit. Great balance and complexity in the flavor; with no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly creamy and chewy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden at 8% with no alcohol noticed at all really. Very smooth to drink but is still definitely a sipper. Overall this is an excellent and very enjoyable Belgian ale as expected from Unibroue. Nice complexity and great balance; with smooth drinking for the level of alcohol.

Pours a clear, humble, brown body with a full, pillowy, light beige head.

Aromas of sweet caramel maltiness with a great balance of Belgian yeast spicy characteristics. Also some hints of dark fruit sweetness buried in the smells.

The tastes begin with crisp pale and caramel maltiness blend with a little roasted/toasted almost but not quite chocolate flavor. Spiciness from the yeast in prevalent throughout but never over-powering.

The lightness of the body does a good job to keep the flavors from being overpowering. Mouthfeel is full, yet thanks to the yeast remains light and very drinkable.

Overall one of my favorite Belgian beers that helped me originally fall in love with craft beer. Glad to get a chance to revisit on draft.
