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.

Skyview (5282) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2008
Served from 12-oz bottle at Bistro 110 in downtown Chicago. Pours a semi-clear amber brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Some nice lacing. Aroma of caramel and Munich malts, some white pepper, cloves, a touch of coriander and fruit bread. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of biscuits, light yeast, some cloves and light fruit. Finish has a mild bitterness with some white pepper and bready malt aftertaste.

sunevdj (3337) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 19, 2008
Pours a clearish amber with a white head. Quite sweet with a romas of cereals. Dry and quite yeasty. High carbonation. Spicy, a bit like a wit. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Long dry, yeasty finish.

BuckeyeSammy (551) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2008
Not much of a head, ruby amber with minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet hops, toast. Flavor is lightly spiced, high drinkability. Malty hints. Well balanced, not too thick/syrupy. Pretty decent american take on a belgian style.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2008
Draught at Goose Island, Chicago, Illinois. I found this overly sour and disappointing. I ended up trading with my drinking companion for Honker’s. The aroma of fruit and hops was nice.

JohnnyJ (4731) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
Pours a gold/orange with white head. fruit, bread, pepper, citrus, and spice (clove). This is nothing that special and Im not a huge fan, but it’s still well done.

Piggy (27) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 6, 2008
amber in color with a small off white forming head, Aroma small hops add it to, with a hint of a very sweet sugar candy. Taste light in spices with a clove flavor to it.

dmac (4438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2008
12 oz bottle from xmarcnolanx, thanks Marc. Pours a hazy orange with an average to small, small for a Belgian anyway, lacey white head. Aroma of candied sugar, tropical fruit, biscuit, green bananas and yeast. Medium bodied with creamy smooth carbonation and a quick disipating aftertaste. Flavor starts off with lots of biscuit, sugar and tropical fruit, finishes with a yeast kick. Really drinkable and nice, never knew anyone named Matilda though.

MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle and first rating on the new computer after a lovely little hard drive crash pushed the last machine out of service. Thought maybe Matilda would be a good way to start (better than Mikkeller Black Hole or Weyerbacher Insanity.) Anyhow, Matilda is a lovely copper color... very transparent and highly carbonated, yet there is not much head forming. Smells like fruit and a bit of peppery hops... a bit of a sweetness to it. Flavor is familiar and nicely done. I get the feeling that I’ve had this beer a hundred times... Taste opens up with a sweet and fruity salvo that transitions to lovely candi sugar and cloves. All of this eventually fades to a bit of a pepper and banana/clove finish that reminds me a lot of yeast. Very nice.

egajdzis (5487) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2008
[MJ Rare Beer Club, 07] Poured a clear dark gold color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of noble hops, toast, light spice, faint horsey brett, and a bit of citrus. Taste of vanilla, toast, light citrus, spices, and a bit of a sourness in the finish.
