COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Matilda is made with a rare yeast that suggests a fruity and spicy flavor. There is complex maltiness balanced with a profuse amount of hops.

22 oz. bottle. 2009. Aroma is fruity and spicy with some banana bread. Appearance is translucent reddish with a thin, wispy head. Mild flavors with an alcohol warming in the finish.No one strong flavor. Interesting. Certainly is some fruit taste fruit and some earth.

StefanSD (2014) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAR 17, 2010
12 oz bottle. cloudy copper pour with a medium off-white head that has good retention. The aroma is distinct with wheat, rock candy and Belgian yeasts. The taste is more of the same with the yeast dominating and the sweet spiced wheat filling in the sides. The palate is full and malty. The finish is long and dry. Overall: All right brew, but it really didnít grab me.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2010
The pour is a clear, coppery-amber color with a fairly small, off-white, pillowy head which is quickly and mostly diminishing and the lace is minimal. The nose is offputting with creamed corn notes hiding the nice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, spicy hops, fresh herbs, graham cracker, and some toast. The flavor is better only because the corn notes are less; spicy cinnamon and nutmeg are more prominent and a little pie crust-like, brown sugar, spicy hops, and bread toast. The palate is lively, medium, and velvety; oddly fitting for the beer. The finish is spicy from the hops and the cinnamon notes, some herbs, and light bread crust. The only thing about this one that I did not like was the corn notes which killed the otherwise nice beer. This brewery does some great things but their Belgian beers are lacking.

Bottle from BOLTZ7555. Thanks Jason! 12oz bottle. Amber color and pours with a pencil thin head. Very little head retention. Grassy and malty in the aroma along with hay notes, orange peel and lemon zest. Flavor shows sweet bready malt, tart citrus fruit (no, not infected), corn syrup, grass, and light spice notes in the finish. Too much corn syrup sweetness and not enough spice, funk or whatever else to balance it out. Not bad but not nearly as good as Sofie or Juliet.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2010
{thoughts} Malty and elegant Belgian-style ale; becomes cloying quickly, seemingly the antithesis of Orval. Enjoyable for what it is but frustrating for what it isnít. Carbonation and dryness are severely lacking.

{elements} Deep amber hue, clear; thin, ivory head. Malt-forward aroma of biscuits/cookies with toasty accents, sweet ricewine vinegar notes, substantial caramel, hints of oranges and a growing thyme-like herbal quality. Moderately sweet, moderate-high acidity, medium bitterness; warming with a tangy vinegar element, cloying sweetness evolves with a peach/apricot baby food aftertaste. Medium body, creamy but soft carbonation, creamy texture.12 oz bottle, bottled on 9.18.2009.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Serving: 22 oz. bottle (no, not the infected one... unfortunately) from Julioís Liquors.
Aroma: The nose is yeast with a bit of overripe fruit. A bit musty and dirty. Perhaps a touch of barnyard.
Appearance: It pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a small, foamy, off-white head. The head fades fairly quickly.
Taste: Fruity and slightly sweet with a unique funky note. Not sour, but odd. There is some peach and apricot jam, a bit of fruit past itís prime, and a hint of yeast. I can see the Belgian influences but this one lacks depth and refinement.
Palate: Medium in body with softer than average carbonation leading to a sweet, fruity finish.
Overall: Let this one age. It just hasnít developed enough character when young. Glad I have a 12 oz. bottle as well. I will see how it is doing in another three years or so.

renffisch (723) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2010
2009 bottle from Nelsons South Wim. Lush copper colour, sweet honeyed botanical yeast nose. Light prickly carbonation and not too sticky mouthfeel. Well balanced malty bisquity flavour with a fruity middle and botanical bitter finish. Pleasant.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - OCT 24, 2010
Got a lambic-feeling from the nose, with a sour fruitynes. Flavours same as aromas, but more malt and a richer taste then the nose.

This beer had spicy yeast blend that balanced out nicely, but still had enough of a fruitiness to carry you though the bottle. I liked it.
