3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

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.

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.
