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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Dark coppery colored, medium sized white head. Cloudy appearance. Yeasty aroma with some Netherland-yeasty tones, flowers also there with lemony fruitiness. Medium bodied. Flavor is even richer with these hoppy-flowers, yeast in sweet aftertaste too.

oh6gdx (20619) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2007
Bottled (thanks heemer77!). Hazy golden orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is hayish hops along with some weirdly dryish notes. Flavour is skunked hops with some really flowery hints. Also some wooden and spicy notes in it as it warms up a little bit. A very mouthdrying thing.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 On tap at the Met, was great-- true illustration of a true Belgian style. Rich aromas, deep alcohol flavours, some citrus in the finish.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle sampled with Mad_indian, from a trade with Ohiodad. Pours Golden with an orange hue. Aroma of spices, belgian style yeast, and fruit. The flavor is smooth, sweet, fruit, spices, yeast, and a good hoppy finish.

MadIndian (2414) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus, courtesy of an ohio dad trade. Cloudy orange pour with tiny head. Bread, spice and malt aroma. Taste was good but it was mising something. It fell a little flat for me. Not a bad brew but no WOW factor !

AgedOak (98) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Cloudy dark golden amber color with a massive frothy head. Spices, yeasts and some malt in the nose. A crisp citrus flavor struck me first , followed by some fruit. Ample amount of carbonation with a somewhat hoppy finish. Very different for a belgian. Very nice

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2007
Bottled
Hazy orange color, good off-white head. Horseblanket, citrus, yeast and mango in the nose. Citrus estery, fruity sweet flavor with some yeast. American adaption of Belgian blonde., maybe they are trying to copy Orval? Good effort but not really match to its archetypes..

omhper (19667) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2007
Bottled. Cloudy golden, creamy head. Orangey yeasty nose. Sweet and mildly malty with medium body. Creamy and fruity with well blended flavours of apricot, vanilla, pine needles and perfume.

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2007
2006 Bottle, thanks Santa (06). Pours out a slightly hazy light orange color with a good sized fluffy head. Aroma of spice and yeast, slight citrus. Taste is smooth still with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor comes together well with light citrus, yeast, spice and some grassy/bitter notes on the finish. Would have again

Very nice beer, crisp and clear. I like the sweet flavor present in many Belgian beera but this one doesn’ leave an unpleasent aftertaste that some stronger ales can do. It’s a little like duvel except it has a cleaner flavor. The hops aren’t too biiter.
