4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A murky golden orange colour with a medium white head. Kind of a weird fruit bread sort of scent with a hint of citrus. Nice fruity-citrus, malty taste and the slight bitterness of hops. Good carbonation and a bitter but pleasant aftertaste. A nice Belgian Ale styled offering.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Eaten By Monsters, Carlisle. Bright orangey gold, clear as you like. Bread, papaya and an odd plastic note inthe scent. The taste is... my sweet Lord... a honeyed caramel intensity bomb. Full gooey palette. My only criticism - and despite my fondness for this beer it is not a minor one - is the feel of artifice which separates Matilda, the pretender queen, from the better Abbey beers. But if it is a copy, it is a good one, and worthy of enjoyment without comparison.

Translucent orange with a minimally sized white head. Pleasant aroma containing notes of malt, yeast, caramel, banana, and citrus. Full bodied, smooth, and extremely rich. Flavours, of yeast, caramel, malt, butterscotch, banana, citrus, and vanilla are present with a negligibly hoppy finish. Absolutely delectable.
