Beer Review: Unibroue Maudite

Pure coincidence, I swear.

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale
ABV: 8%

Fun Fact About the Brewery: 

Holy shit, French Canadians ARE good for something! They make fantastic Belgian style beer, as well as ridiculous videos on their ornate web site explaining the origins of their beers. Unibroue is simultaneously the nerdiest, most uncool shit ever and the nerdiest, coolest shit ever. I mean, all their beers world class. They've been one of the most highly respected breweries for a long time now. You can get bottles of La Fin Du Monde (bad ass name) and Maudite in pretty much any store that sells beer, so you can kind of take that for granted. But finding it on tap can be a bit more rare. Apparently, the Unibroue crew came through Seattle recently and hooked it up for a few bars, the Burgundian being one of them.


So very delicious and refreshing. Perfect on a hot day. They call it a red Belgian, but to me the color was more orange-ish. Not very dark at all, but cloudy, yes. Just the right blend of sweet and spicy. It's pretty easy to see where all the hype comes from. Those French Canadians are nothing if not slaves to their craft.

Rating: 4.5/5
