3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a large bottle purchased in Chicago into a narrow-style glass to drink. The beer had a rich, semi-cloudy amber color with a modest foamy white head that had short retention, but good lacing and average cling. The aroma has a pleasant blend of yeast, floral hops, touches of citrus and spice, and a good caramel malty effect for balance. It had a somewhat bitter citrus and floral taste, with a subtle yeast sour effect and some modest caramel malt and candy notes. The beer was fairly wet and filled the mouth with a slight creamy effect, but had light carbonation and life.

Floral nose. You can smell the yeasts. Taste is dominated by alcohol and I’m searching the brettanomyces. Not bad but I need to try one with a couple of months of aging

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.

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.
