3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Sergio’s, served in a stemmed Leffe glass. Pours a semi-cloudy, mostly clear orange with a small off-white head that leaves some spots in the glass. Aroma of peach, apricot, grapes, oak, sweet malts, and some funk. Flavor of oak, earth, pale and sweet malts, grass, florals, and a ton of wine grapes. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, vinous, oaky mouthfeel. Low to moderate carbonation. No sourness, really. And I wouldn’t have guessed this was a version of Matilda because it’s so different. I prefer the regular version.

Tap at Madisons. Boozy orange-peel brett feel, not overly sour. Delicate champagne effervescence. Light tartness, island pungency, mango, ect. An interesting beer, but not really so preferable over the original. Tastes more infected than enhanced.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded and left good lacing. The aroma was tart apple and pear, brett, bread and a hint of clove. The flavor was brett up front followed by must, funk, apple, and pear. Tasted a bit water with a tangy undertone of citrus and clove. Medium length funky brett and apple finish. Medium body. Ok.
