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.

Taste is interesting. The nose is barnyard, apricot, citrus. A bit over carbonated, killing the flavor a bit. Color is a deep orangey-gold. Taste is heavy in the malts, with toast and spice. Decent, not fantastic. Finish is dry.

Opaque Orange Coloring with White Head. Dried Citrus Aroma. Dry Yeasty Taste to it...Thick Mouthfeel.. Dry Malt and Yeast Working with Citrus and Spice Makes This a Seemingly Simple Tasting, but Perhaps Complex and in any Case, Wonderfully Enjoyable Brew.

Sammy (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2005
Like a saison, extremely horse though recent brew. Some spice, cinammon, nutmeg, not much, pale colour nice amount of head, and foam at the bottom. Nice drinking, but you have to get by the smell. Do you think skunked in short time? Peppery, medium mouthfeel.

heykevin (1276) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Deep golden. Light to moderate brett and styrians (light) aroma. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Pretty good brett laced flavor, but I’m left craving a more aggressive brett character and more bitterness. I rather like this, but if your making and orvallish beer, why hold back?

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Pours an orangey copper color with a one finger head that fades to a spotty cap that leaves plenty of lacing. Smell; slightly floral, a bit of orange peel and freshly mown hay. Taste; spiced oranges, slight floral hops, and there’s an interesting funky/earthiness to it. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, but there’s a little to much bite in the carbonation. Overall this is a pretty solid beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2391) - California, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Clear golden orange body with a white head. Aroma is sorta like Orval. Perfumey with spices and candy sugar. Yeast and hints of pepper there as well. Flavor is a lot like Orval, but not quite as assertive. Some floral hop bitterness. Basically an easier to drink version of Orval to me. Good job Goose Island... I’m not a huge Orval fan... yet. If you don’t think Orval is 5/5 material this is worth trying.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Mostly copper with golden highlights, a nice soft haze and a fizzy head. Aroma of banana with citrus undertones and evident Brettanomyces. Predominantly sour flavor with some spicy notes, a heavy yeast presence and a highly astringent finish. Although enjoyable, it’s not the masterpiece I expected through heresay.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2005
Fruity, perfumey, spicey hop nose with plenty of Brett. Clear orange-copper coloured body with a low white covering of head that recedes to ring with some light lacing. Tropical fruits and grassy, spicy, floral hops with some woody brett character on the tongue. Dy, medium body with soft, gentle, fine bubbled carbonation. Sampled on tap at Barcade in NYC with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Hazed orange/amber hue, ample creamy fuzz above... Aroma is sour at first...fresh, vibrant, full of that special Belgian feel, sweet and unique,...like nothing other...except for the others... Tasting it: Mmmm! Smooth, tasty...lush fruit, smacks of sour, flush flavor, very particular, this...but altogether delicious! Almost like a saison, just about...but so very tasty, and satisfying...lofty and lovely, ...a keeper! Enjoy when you can!

The most enchanting thing about Matilda is her fragrance. It streams easy and effortless through the nostrals, igniting a rhapsody of aromas; cucurbit spices, coriander and earthy esters. Her tone is copper and honey with a cloudy aire. Her head, lofty and blonde. Sugar candy and old-world yeast combine in a malty colaboration, but ends rather hollow; apple pie without the nutmeg. The finish is were it is most absent. Close. It is so close.
