Unibroue Maudite has a fiery peppery spice and an aged-cheese tang

Québec's Unibroue is one of the world leaders in brewing Belgian-inspired ales, and "Maudite" is one of their most fascinating beers.

The beer is aged long on the lees and bottle-conditioned, imparting diverse yeasty scents and flavors not present in malt or hops alone. Combining Weizenbock-associated caramel and clove aromas with the fiery peppery spice and aged-cheese tang more typical of a Trappist Dubbel, this reddish-amber strong ale resists traditional classification. Yet who cares when the results are so addictively delicious? Fragrant without overwhelming, strong without feeling heavy, this beer is a masterpiece that cries out for rich, slow-cooked foods and boldly seasoned sauces. The name may mean "Cursed," but with this beer, you're only damned if you don't try it.
