COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Matilda is made with a rare yeast that suggests a fruity and spicy flavor. There is complex maltiness balanced with a profuse amount of hops.

Super comfortable and cozy in the mouth. Smooth and creamy, easy to just keep hastening it down all morning long.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Bottle: Pours amber with a small head. Very fruity aroma and flavor. Palate is a little thin. Very drinkable.

3-2-08 bottle shared at tasting.
Orange amber with a decent head. Smell is sweet citris malt and perhaps a bit of hops. Has a bit of the funky Belgian musk to it - but it isn’t overpowering or out of place. Flavor is a bit bland actually and not very fulfilling. Mouthfeel is average. Overall, nothing too great - just a very muted beer.

gunsho (134) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 9, 2008
a tribute to orval from greg. decent belgian style ale. cloudy yellow pour with almost no head. tartness of fresh fall apples and citrus notes. nice balance of malt to go with astringent hops.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2008
12oz bottle - 2007 vintage: Pours a ruby tinged honey with a healthy bright white head. Hot alcohol nose displays some nice honeyed malt along with a dose of pear and peach esthers. Medium bodied body offers sweet honey, bread and caramel wrapped in an esther laden body that brings to mind peaches, pineapple and granny smith sour apples. Finishes tart with more fruit esthers. Good stuff right here - better in the bottle this year than I’ve had on draught before.

Bottle and bottled on 030206. Small semi-fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished with floaties, spotty amounts of lacing, cloudy, fizzy carbonation, and a golden orange hue. Nose was malty, hoppy, sweet, yeasty, and spicy notes. Ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel and medium in body. I would definitely drink this one again as I liked the flavor, very quaffable and nicely done. I would enjoy the opportunity to have this on tap.

Rich honey colored pour with no lasting head. Pours somewhat hazy. Smell is malty and belgian yeast aromas and some metal. Average unremarkable flavor mostly from the yeast and some simple light maltiness. Really found this one especially tame and bland, even being congested as I was.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Beer tasting sample: Earthy robust nose. Candied apricots/tangerines with some hops. Pours a cloudy light golden yellow, thin filmy head. Thing and lacking in flavor/doesn’t live up to the nose. I get a little grain and dry hops. Palate is thin and not to complex. ::shrug::

Ordered on tap at Matilda’s in CHicago. Goose Island Matilda is a great Belgian style ale. I enjoyed the hopp foundation and unusual flavor similar to an Orval.

Pours a golen tangerine hue with solid creamy white head. Fair amount of lacing after ten minutes. Nose is pepper, bubblegum, and banana. Hops meet up with the sweet esters forming a spicey and floral combination. This went really well with the chinese bar-b-q I was eating. The pairing really brought out the hop bitterness as well as more of the floral elements of the beer. The floral notes remind me of the orange and coriander of a wit, but there’s something more there too... maybe jasmine. Finish is nice and creamy.
