Good Belgian. I am not crazy about the rest of the beers I have had from goose island, but I like this one (others are not bad, just not in my wheel house). I know AB bought a stake in this company, but I doubt that impacts the bottle of Matilda I enjoyed tonight. I usually like my Belgians a little hotter than this one is, but a break from the really high abv won’t kill me. Good job, will buy again.

Weevo (70) - Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle pours dark golden with 1" cream head. Smell and taste of cloves but not too much, some bitterness but not to much. Just how I like it, nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like bitter beer. Taste is sort of mediocre if not slightly below average. Like a mildly malty ale with hops. Medium carbonation with some foam.

24/V/15 - 75cl bottle @ LIBF (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2015-702) Thanks to the Belgian (and Dutch, and...) RB crew for sharing today’s beers!

Clear copper orange beer, no head. Aroma: very malty, grains, lots of cow fodder, wort, bit sweet, caramel, fruity touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of malts, grains, cow fodder, bit sweet, caramel, soft hoppy touch. Aftertaste: grains, cow fodder, slightly hoppy, grassy finish.

Pours orange. Can taste cloves with flavors of spices, can’t tell which ones. Not bad but still like Sofie better.

overtheline (66) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2015
355ml bottle pours a hazy mid copper with small off white head. Spicy nose, cloves, pepper and maybe a bit of cinnamon, some floral notes. Taste is, again, spicy with a bit of fruit. Slightly bitter finish but also a sour note and a sweet spiced apple warmth, interesting.

Hamirubi (299) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2015
15cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015). I don’t really get the high Ratebeer ratings. To me, this amber coloured brew is just a flat Caffè Americano beer. Lots of water, weak coffee. Did not really notice the "piney and resinous edges of the hops" - too bad.

ElManana (1086) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle at Leuven Innovation Beerfestival, thanks for sharing! Crazy boring beer, would drown in averageness on your regular Belgian beer tasting. Yeast, citrus, maybe some orange peel.
