Review: Unibroue Maudite

Unibroue Maudite
8.0% ABV
Unibroue, Chambly, Quebec, Canada
12 oz bottle
Served in Dogfish Head Signature Glass 
Reviewed on 5/28/12

This red ale pours an amber brown and is cloudy with a good bubbly head that keeps form.  Good carbonation with some nice moderate lacing.

It smells of citrus, malt, bananas, spice.  Fairly reminiscent of Unibroue's La Fin du Monde.  In a blind smell test, I'm not sure if I could tell the difference.

Taste has bananas, malt, spices, touch of honey, even a mild hint of maple.  A bit more sugary in taste than La Fin du Monde.

Mouthfeel has a slight earthiness to it with good bubbliness.  Decent balance of flavors.  Some moderate dryness.

Overall, this is a solid beer, reminiscent of La Fin du Monde (a good thing), though it's not as well balanced and has somewhat lesser taste.

Score: 91
