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.

Satyroneto (325) - BRAZIL - OCT 20, 2016
Cor de cobre, cristalina e brilhante; espuma branca de baixas formação e persistência com pouco lacing. Aroma de pão, biscoito e especiarias. Sabor maltado muito agradável de biscoito doce com final seco; retrogosto seguindo o sabor com um toque de álcool. Corpo médio, levemente sedoso e baixa carbonatação.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Deep veiled dark golden color with thick storming activity and floating detritus. Frothy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with nice legs. Flavors of oak, oka cheese, banana yeast, lemon, orange, apples, pears, grapefruits, sweet grains, caramel, herbal spices. Thick fruity sweetness with a sharp sour feel. Smooth light body with crispy carbonation. Medium to strong strength finish, dry tongue coating ester fruits and citrus, thick malty and yeasty feel, with a nice barrel aged effect and bit of clove and codiander. Highly boozy and vinous yet fresh and well balanced. Quite delicious and very complex. Would serve this as an appetizer being a little bold. Overall superb quality craft.

Lagerboy (1962) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
765 ml bottle, 2014 vintage. Unclear orange copper, firmer off-white lasting foam. Spicy yeasty aroma, some citrus and clove. Taste is Belgian yeast, well spiced, some fruity citrus, spicy herbal hop, leaner malts, sweet caramel later on, fairly complex, finishes dry. Lively carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

mikske79 (1500) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - OCT 14, 2016
Een zeer lekkere geur, lekker fruitig en fris. De kleur donkerblond met een mooie kraag. De smaak is iets te artificieel.

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle (2014). Vibrant orange in colour with spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of horse blanket, earth, and sweet citrus peel. The flavor profile is nicely balanced between the funk, earth, brown spice, sweet malt, and mild citrus. It starts off a bit slick on the palate, but the earthy spice notes balance things out.

Bottle. Pours almost clear, golden in colour with small white head. Aroma of zest, lemons, malt and light funk. In taste lightly sweet, fruity with spicy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

Martinus (4540) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016
Golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, yeast, reminding of Leffe. Sweet flavour, malts, banana. Sweet finish, malts, yeast and banana. Not my cup of tea.
(from 66cL bottle @ Leuven Innovation, Leuven 2015. Thanks for sharing all the beers, RateBeer crew!)

MattChiasson (54) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Out of the bottle, poured a deep copper, cloudy, quickly evaporating head. I got earthy notes of brett, barnyard, mushroom and herbal tea, along with some sour cherry, orange peel and apple cider. Very funky on the palate. Lingering bitterness. Too funky for my taste, but certainly worth a try.
