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.

Bottle 1423. Bottled on 11/26/07. Pours a clear golden orange with a pale beige head. The aroma is prevalent in spices with some notes of a citrus tang. Iím not that well-versed in spice aromas, but I can say that this reminds me of an overly-spiced pumpkin pie. The flavour is much like the aroma, lots of spices but not intense enough to make this a chore to drink. The fruit flavours, which resemble pears and orange rinds, give a balanced roundness to the spices. The finish has a light spiced bitterness, but is pretty smooth for the most part. Lots of yeastiness in the finish too. I donít like spiced beers, but this isnít too bad.

My first experience with this beer, though, wasnít an enjoyable one. I cracked one open shortly after my Dark Lord Day road trip. The spices were overbearing. I think aging this, much like other spiced beers Iíve had, really balanced out the flavour.

Goliath thanks for the brew Bottle poured into a sniffer produced a good finger worth of head that faded away to a thin laver of lace Aromas of bubblegum and spices filed my nose Tasted great for an American Belgian just the right amount of sweetness and spice well done the mouthfeel is about what I wanted in it as well just enough carbonation to keep it interesting I thought it was a fine beer for a Belgian clone and would drink it again

12 oz bottle (2006) from trade with Acknud. Pours a golden and slightly orange color with a bit of haziness. Quickly lost fluffy white head. Sour fruit notes in the aroma, but just what I needed. Quick punch of spice in the initial taste which is followed by a great yest and bread-like taste. Malty sweetness compliments the amount of hop bite. Somewhat lite on the palate. Good Belgian inspired. Would like a fresher bottle to compare it to.

Bottle courtesy of fiver29. Pours a hazy honey color with one finger off-white head and spotty lacing. Nose is chardonnay grapes, peach, apricot and spicy yeast. Taste is sweet citrus, yeast, banana and spice with a funky, lightly sour finish. Medium mouth feel. Very refreshing beer. Thanks John!

Deep orange-gold pour with a light head. Sweet aroma with lots of yeast and spice. Taste is a little on the sweet caramel side with traces of orange, clove and coriander. Slightly bitter finish is a welcome way to offset the initial sweetness. Good stuff from Goose Island, but I definitely prefer Mís big brother, Pere Jacques.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Nice amber with a medium to small head. Smells of spicy yeast, light fruit, and some mild citrus and resiny hops. Flavor starts out sweet and sour then moves to slightly bitter. Little bit of an oily mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Not bad.

Clear orange pour with a thin white head. Spicy malt aroma. Dry bitter flavor with a bit of lemony citrus. Peppery spiciness. Fairly straightforward beer, but not bad.

Courtesy of topherdrinks, thanks Chris! Pours a hazy golden color with a medium frothy light tan head. Nose of fruits, floral, and metallic overlay. Mouthfeel is light body and with lots of micro bubbles. Initial tasteof caramel sweetness, red fruits, spices apparent corriander. Finishing with a good hop balance that tangy more than bitter. Palate duration is average. Good Head retention with some spot lacing. Drinkable, but probably wouldnít hit this one up again. Taste is simple and not very appetizing.
