this is beer that i find satisfying even though i do not particularly enjoy belgian ales. matilda is different that is to say the spicing is different. i suppose comparable to a degree but clearly and interestingly different. the mouthfeel is moderate and lightish with typical belgian small bubbling. the brew pours an interesting taste with mild dark fruit in the backround. the sweetness is good but overdone. towards the middle of a glass the taste becomes annoying. after the beer settles the flavors and characers of the beer mingle and a light hoppiness springs to life. the beer is quite adequate if given a few minutes to breathe.

Tripplebrew (777) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Pours a opaque/hazy honey gold with thick creamy white head. Aroma is sweet, of apples and yeast with a bit of spice. Flavor is of yeast hops and hints of apple. sweet and bitter very well balanced. There is definite hops but it is offset by the a bit of yeastiness. I really like this beer. It has been awhile since I had it and forgot how much I like it. Goose Island forever.

So used to hearing the word "interesting" used with a negative conotation. Well, this is interesting in a most glorious way. The flavors evoke so much and much of that seems either divergent -if flavors can be divergent - what Iím saying is that flavors that I generally wouldnít think of as working together well do so in this beer. Sour and sweet or tart, spicy and giving the sensation that it saw time in a barrel of one sort or another whether it actually did. I really liked tasting this and finding different bits in every sip. Couldnít begin to list it all, so I wonít. If you can get your hands on one, I would recommend it. If you sent me this bottle, thak you. Iíve had it tucked in the back of my fridge so long that I forgot it and who sent it. (donít think that means I donít appreciate you)

Robbo75 (3) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2008 does not count
Fancy label, but otherwise a typical American Belgian-Style beer. Does not have the true brett flavor of a real Belgian. Nice, but nothing exceptional.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Sammy. Vintage 2006. Hazy, amber golden with a dense, off-white head leaving some lacing. Sweetish, spicy nose with a touch of yeast. Medium body, a little yeastiness and spices before an astringent almost Orval-like bitterness. Interesting. 171207

yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2007
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a little, dense and off-white head. Light brettish note with light spice note and some caramel malt. Flavour is slight soapy, nice caramel malty and with a nice yeasty mellow note. Finish follows the same mellow line with a light fruity brett note, very controlled.

I have had this a couple of times on draft and bottle, draft looked a little darker? Either way its a little too sweet for my taste, but itís obvious why people like it - its VERY Belgian. Bottle tells the Orval story, and all the Goose limited relaeses look cool. Possibly a little overpriced, but like the Pere Jacques I canít say anything bad, it just isnít my favorite style.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a big steady off-white creamy head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, spice and fruit. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is fruity with yeast and citrus, bitter hops and some malt. Bitter, yeasty and fruity spiced dry finish.

bottle poured into a trappist glass has an orange amber in color, light sediment, and a thin layer of white foam on the surface that did attempt to lace. initial aroma on the pour had yeast and fruit, some sharp spice, caramel, orange peel, malt, and is really nice to smell. taste is mid range on the mouth feel, flavor is spicy, nice yeast that has lighter fruit character than the smell led me to believe, dominated by the sharpness of the spice but thankfully the malt does keep it from being too much. really a nice brew, has a good story to go with it, also some strong flavors but the complexity of it keeps me interested, props go out to these guys for pulling this off so well.
