Unibroue Maudite

One of my favorite styles of beer is the Belgian style. There are so many different Belgian styles and there are great. Many different breweries from all over the world brew different Belgian beer styles. Belgian beer is widely popular throughout the world. Here is one example from Chambly Québec Canada, Unibroue Maudite, 8.0% ABV. Maudite is Belgian strong dark ale and is refermented in the bottle. Maudite pours a dark ruby color with a big two fingered, light beige colored head that very slowly dissipates and leaves some thin lacing behind. I found very small amounts of light coming through the goblet with tiny amounts of carbonation bubbles racing towards the foamy head. The aroma on Maudite is of dark fruits, such as plums and raisins. There is a bit of a clove like scent going along with the dark fruits and I found a faint hint of coriander. The taste is not as strong as some other Belgian strong dark ale. There is a light citrusy note at first that fades into a light dark fruit (the dark fruit get more intense as the bee warms), Then you get a little strong boozy taste that fades into semi clove like taste. Maudite has a slight sweetness to it that is most pleasant. Maudite has a medium mouth feel and finishes nice and smooth with hints of sweetness. The after taste on Maudite is nice with a plumy semi sweetness that sticks around just enough to really enjoy. Maudite is great beer so this gets an A. I’ve not really had a beer from Unibroue that was just plane, okay or bad.  They brew such wonderful beer and Maudite is a great one of theirs. I highly recommend trying Maudite. So go out and try Unibroue Maudite and see what you think of it. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
