Unibroue Maudite Abbey Double ~ 34.1cl

A red-amber ‘Belgium-style Dubbel’ – complex, unctuous and slightly sweet brown ale.

Maudite, meaning cursed, evokes the Quebec legend of La Chasse-galerie (The Bewitched Canoe)  which tells the tale of lumberjacks from camps working around the river who, for a night of fun, risk anything by making a pact with the devil.

IBU 22

Tasting Notes:

Straw coloured and poring with a thick head it has a subtle bouquet of spices with citrus notes, aromas of yeasty bread, coriander and cloves. Orange and spices are the main flavours with good sugar/acidity balance and a honey finish.

Beer and food pairings: Ideal with poultry, white fish, mussels, salmon tartare, butter asparagus, goat cheese or gruyere. But also in preparation of Crepe Suzette pancakes!

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.

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