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.

dynamiteninja (1478) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle conditioned from 27/11/2012. Consumed on 24/4/2014. Medium white head. Gold to amber body. Visible carbonation. Belgian yeast, hop, malt, sour, hint of Maraschino cherries. Banana. Champagne. Taste is sour. Dry finish. Good carbonation. Refreshing. Somewhat of a summer beer. Fair play to Goose Island here, a really good take on Orval.

scotchzombie (318) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours like a copper-amber sunset with an active soapy white head that leaves wet lacing as it fades to an adequate coating. Aroma is biscuits, yeast and mild fruit esters. Banana and clove. Taste too is biscuit malts and yeast. The fruit esters are a backbone that ripens as this beer warms. Nople hops. Spicy, sour, well-carbonated. Quite nicely balanced. Leans more on the malt character vs fruity sweetness. A yeast-lovers treat.

Malty aroma, nice amber color, little to no white head. Nasty and spicy yeast profile. Great beer.

EtTuCthulhu (1007) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2014
The appearance is a clear orange with a very small white head, and the aroma is fairly light with only hints of Belgian yeast and sour fruit. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate fuses an average carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a slightly sour finish.

EricTeusink (678) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2014
I am going through a Belgian Ale phase. This beer pours a hazy golden straw with a big white head. Scent is spicy. Flavors are complex mix of lemon, earth, with overall mild sweet flavor. Live yeast makes it nice and lively. Bottle - Sherlock’s - Decatur, GA

rdixon77 (649) - Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2014
Nice solid Belgian style. Orange color. Aroma of banana and some tart apple. Taste is well balanced with Belgian style yeast, spices, sweet orange. Drinkable, with good carbonation. Nothing special but really good.

commonmac (266) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Tap at New Bohemia. Beautiful appearance characterized by copper color. Little head. Taste is complex. Some spicy qualities. Some hops. Malt is there. Very easy to drink given the alcohol involved. Definitely one of Goose Island’s best. Finish is really solid. I would hook up with this Matilda.
