Tropical fruity, pineapple, pears, bretty, biscuit, grass, white grapes, and sweet tarts in the aroma.

kidmartinek (3655) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Cool opaque new copper color. Holds a white head. Woody, weedy, yeasty aroma with mineral and lichen. Medium body and flavor with bittersweet yeast, hops and fruit. Maintains a mild character. A complex, balanced enjoyable brew, and that’s what makes the key... balancing the complexity.

HIGHB4LL (544) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at the Mayor of Oldtown. Appearance: small white head, amber yellow, light cloudy, good lacing. Aroma: medical smells, light raspberry, sweetness of other fruit. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, dry finish, lingering medical taste. Taste: sweet to light tartness, medical. Overall, I could not get over the medical taste personally, very overpowering and distracting. Disappointed.

574deadzone (1042) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours clear golden with an eggshell head that leaves a wall of intricate lacing. Nose involves some bretty earthy funk, some spice, light clove, and some sour apple. Lightly sweet, fairly bitter, a touch tart. Medium bodied, oily, earthy, fairly active, with a dry earthy finish. Nice brew, interesting twist on Matilda. Basically, it’s just a canvas for the brett, but it works nicely.
