Funky tart aroma with some wood flavor. Glorious golden in color with a fluffy head. Very tasty, lots of sour flavor, very light in flavor, with a delicious balance of zesty hops. Delicious.

Excellent Belgian ale from Goose Island. I sampled this on draft at the "pub" at the O’Hare airport. The Maltida poured a dark gold color with a decent off-white head. The lacing stuck beautifully to the inside of the glass. The body was smooth and drinkable, with flavors of dark fruit, light but spicy hops, bread and yeast.

On tap. Pours a hazy golden with thin white lacing. Initial aromas of lemongrass with a sweet scent. Goes down suprisingly sweet and refreshing with grassy, citrus aromas.

Bamsen78 (3394) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle @ Hoppy Advent Race in Space, Sønderborg. Pours hazy amber with stable off-white head. Atypical aroma of raisins and porto, with vinous and hoppy notes. Vinous flavour with notes of malt, red berries, yeats and dust and some hoppy bitterness. Bitter and sourish aftertaste. Decent.

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, 7%. Fruity and citric aroma with a good raisin note to it. Clear copper colour, a little reddish, with some small bits floating in it. small white head. The flavour is citric and fruity with some berry to it. Has a good balance between the berry flavours, citric notes and bitterness.

Picked this one up at the supermarket on a recent trip to Quebec and i was pleasantly surprised. Aroma: barnyard, lemongrass, hay bales Appearance: great head formation and retention, slight haze (positive), bursting with carbonation Taste: lemon funk, moderate spicy bitterness, nice barnyard brett character, fresh hay Palate: super dry, prickly carbonation, refreshing bitterness Overall: this beer rocked my world. Good to see that the buy-out of this brewery did not affect quality. One of the best saisons I have ever had. Great value for the $. Highly recommended.

Tap at The Oak. Hazy gold pour with a thick head that fades slowly to a ring. Aroma is very floral with banana, bubblegum, and light oranges. Taste has lots of floral hops with a spicy, bubblegum yeast finish. There’s a generic fruitiness in there too. Medium body. Not bad but something I won’t go back to.

dhatton (30) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Thick yeasty aroma, borderline musty, if not for the pleasant floral scents. Solid BPA that’s lively to taste and well-balanced. Medium body, doughy with cloves and spices on the finish.

Nice spicy peppery aroma with a golden medium bodied hazy beer. Taste is bitter and slightly sour, really refreshing. Some extra citrus in the aroma. Not too complex, but very well made great beer.

"Goose Island", "Belgian" style, "Matilda". So there you have it. A flock of geese, Kangaroos and a nation running away from the German army, making beer. The results are as expected: it tastes like a goose necked, kangaroo afraid to take on the "BIG BOY" of brewing: Blatz. It’s true. Save this for those fondue-dipping freaks from Europe. And take solace in the fact that YOU---as a MAN----prefer the greatest beer to ever "blitz" your liver: Blatz. Don’t question it.
