COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water, Styrian and Saaz Hops, 2-Row Barley and Caramel Malt, Yeast and Granulated Beet Sugar.
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.

Nice fruit aroma mixed with yeast. Thick head formed but went away after a while. Average color, but the taste is filled with yeast, banana, spice, clove, and light hops. Tasty beer that would be even better if the aftertaste was better.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Bottle: Clear light amber with a bubbly white head that lasts barely longer than the pour, this has a fruity (mainly cherry) aroma with light sweet malts, floral hopping, and unmet suggestions of a spiciness to follow. Light-bodied, this has a sweet malt taste, some citric tartness, mild unknown spicing, and a bit of hop bitterness. The finish is a citric bitterness, not hop related, with a sweet fruity stickiness. Not a bad beer, but absurdly overpriced for what it is.

took a few drinks from the same snifter duane was drinking from. This beer was all yeast. slightly spicy and slightly fruity, but there was so much yeast up front that I had a tough time distinguishing the more subtle flavors.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Bottle with 2006 on the neck label. Rich amber color with continuing lively white head, densely laced. The aroma has a malt backbone with substantial fruit notes, but in the tasting over time the caramel ale dimensions built, very dry and leaving a bit of a tacky finish, not unlike a few British ales I’ve had. Overall, then, it left a feeling of lacking dimensionality. Good carbonation, tingling, with a moderately oily mouthfeel. It just wasn’t my thing--perhaps greater fruitiness and a little less dry and it would have suited my tastes better.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours a medium gold with a quickly fading head. A little of everything. Spice, hops, yeast, malts. Nothing really takes control and stands out. But an overall nice mix.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2006
12 oz bottle via Monger (thanks james!) Pours a semi hazy copper with a large head. Typical Belgian yeast aroma with notes of vanilla and bananna. Somwhwat spicey flavors with some coriander, some apple & bananna and a fizzy crisp dry finish. Medium bodied. I do not care for this style much, but this is one of the best if the the best Belgian Ales i have tasted.

Stine (1574) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Pours to this common orangey shade that for some reason is weird looking to me. Nose mostly of fruity candy sugars and yeast with some mango and orange. Flavor is initially malty followed by cloves and bananas foster, pistachio and walnut. A bit medicinal, and probably overcarbonated, and on this tasting, much less pleasant than i remember.

Poured honey colored with a fluffy dirty white head. Some floaties were present. Aroma was yeast, floral notes, and sweet fruits. Flavor is sweet fruits, some orange peel, and a hint of cardboard. Finish is dry and floral.
