Pours a rich orange with a paperthin head. Funky aroma with Brett up front, spicy yeast and hops in the back. Taste follows, slightly medicinal. Smooth and hides the alcohol pretty well. Not bad

Matilda is a great representation of the vintage line. It’s very distinctive and smooth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
765ml bottle. Pours a light amber with some fine sediment floaters, and a cream coloured head. Aroma has a delicious traditional alcoholic cider note, light caramel, yeast, light spice, and light pear. Medium bodied with fruity cider like notes up front, yeast, light spice, light pear, mineral notes, a light soapy note and very faint barnyard. Makes me think of Orval with the barnyard removed, which for me is an improvement. Thumbs up!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a fluffy off white head and a little yeast floating around inside. Very nice bretty funk note on the nose, noticeably peppery/spicy, wet grass, nice and fruity, citrusy hop bite, and a nice sweet malty note. Very little of the hoppiness in the taste, a lot less brett funk than I expected, and a lot of the flavor is just malty sweetness. There’s some of the nice peppery spice and citrus fruits there, too. Taste is very much a letdown after the smell.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a big rocky head that diminishes slowly leaving excellent lacing. Aroma is caramel, bread dough and hay. Body is very light bitter and heavy sweet, spicy, clove, leather. Palate is soft carbonation, no alcohol, a bit sticky and a long funky sticky finish. Interesting. Kinda strange.
