Boy is that a pillowy head! Beautiful lacing. Deep golden color with a slight haze. The very standard spicy citrus aroma. That candy sugar thing happening in nose and taste. Nice texture...lingers on the palate. Mild, drop hop finish.

TattooJack (176) - Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from the bottle of a 4-pack into the pint glass. good looking glass of beer. Tastes a little sweet and tart at first, turns to spicy then bitter. Pretty good at 7%, should be in a six pack.

RD400F (214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
765ml bottle to leffe bowl glass, the beer pours a dirty hazy orange with lots of floaties, looks great! The aroma is sour and fruity, lots of citrus, orange peel, lemon, honey, vanilla...I’m very curious at this point. Surprisingly the taste isn’t as sour as I thought but carries lots of bitterness and a bit of sweetness to back it. There’s a dustyness to this beer along with strong fruit flavours and a taste of cigarettes. A bit medicinal as well. Is it good? Yep. But definitely not what I was expecting given the aroma. The beer is quite drinkable, balance is good, co2 is medium, body is medium. Overall if matilda was a real woman she would be dusty, smell like cigars, be a little odd, medium bodied but be pretty decent in bed. Or so this beer implies.

jksipa (427) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy deep amber with a billowy off white head that recedes quite slowly. Nose has bread, toffee, banana, cloves, grass and a bit of Brett funk. Light sweet caramel and bread start with a medium light grassy bitterness and cherry tartness carrying through to the finish. Light spice throughout. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation and a dry finish. Nice combination of sour and spice.

tonypreto (130) - Akron, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2015
12 oz bottle poured into chalice. Great aroma of belgianish yeast and some hops. Nothing special on the nose really. Almost no head to it. Easy on the palate with moderate carbonation, but something tasted slightly "off" to me. Preferred Sofie way more.

MunBro (570) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Very mild for a Belgian Pale Ale. Some spicy, malty notes with a mild hop flavour backing it up. Should have a higher abv and more of a spice bite perhaps.

Listigovers (382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Nice spicy and yeasty aroma, clear blond ale with a white head. Flavor is very yeasty with a good hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Strong and warming.

gramity (1506) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a dark orange,honey color, small head, some lacing. Aroma is Belgian spices, clove, some banana but there’s a feeling of complexity here. Taste is yeasty with a complex spice feeling. A slight bitterness at the end which is awesome and great balance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
