Unibroue Maudite ~ 34.1cl

Maudite is a Belgium style ‘Double/Dubbel’.

When Maudite was launched in 1992, its 8% alcohol content made it the first strong beer brewed in Canada.

Its unique, at the time, strength led to its name and branding – a pact signed with the devil. The illustration of the “chasse-galerie” (or flying canoe) from a beloved Quebec legend captures the spirit of the beer.

19 Gold Awards, 12 Silver, 3 Bronze

Unibroue create unique-tasting craft beers using traditional brewing techniques allied with some modern Quebec inspired experimentation. Unibroue was the first American craft brewery to use methods inspired by the Belgium Trappist monks and has remained faithful to their styles.

Unibroue is Canada’s most highly awarded brewery with over 265 awards to date.

Tasting Notes:

Dark amber/ brown colour (18 SRM/ 36 EBC) with good head retention.

Velvety palate of caramalised sugar and marmalade; slightly roasted malts with a warm and spicy finish. A very good interpretation of the Abbey Dubbel style.

About the Brand


In 1990-91 Andre Dion and Serge Racine joined the fast growing ‘craft beer’ movement by investing as majority shareholders in the financially troubled La Brasserie Massawippi of Lennoxville. They merged with Unibroue in 1992 and partnered with a Belgium brewery to launch Blanche de Chambly, North America’s first ‘Abbey’ inspired beer.

 In 1993 they moved into a new, cutting edge, brewery in Chambly, Quebec, and further major investment was forthcoming in the following years. Their passion for Abbey beers was furthered in 2001 when Belgium trained brewmaster Paul Arnott joined.

Production and distribution of their beers increased when Unibroue was purchased by Sleeman in 2004.
