Is it worth it to rate sours? Does it make sense to like the flavor of something that is vaguely fungal funky? Still it's a good and interesting brew. Richer amber color than I expected and more subtle malt flavor than the regular Matilda. Funk and yeast on the nose with something I can't place. The flavor hits the middle of the tongue and is strange flowing into so interesting and layered that I like it even tho I don't. Strange brew.

Funky and earthy but without that bite of tart I expect from a sour ale. Not bad, but a little disappointing. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft sample at Spirits in Brick NJ. Poured a cloudy light amber color with a thick pillowy off white head. Aroma is sweet and funky. Taste mimics the nose. Sweet darker fruits, yeast, Brett, and some tart citrus notes. cards04 (2917) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014

On tap at the 2013 Capones Black Friday event. Pale amber with a white head. Raisin, orange, light funk, some yeast and light brett. Moderate carbonation and light body, easy to drink. theisti (4203) - Kansas, USA - DEC 23, 2013
~8 oz draft at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazed yellow lighter golden with a ½ inch white head the falls quickly. The aroma is full on musty funk along with a delicate floral citrus lemon. The taste is the earthy funk initially, then clears towards the traditional Saison notes of Matilda with the grain, slight ester herbal yeast and the soft floral lemon citrus. All flavors combine decently, and are quite drying. A bit more funky tart than sour. The palate is medium bodied, a nearly flat carbonation and the dry finish. Interesting, though not much depth of character. tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2013
At the Valley Forge Brew Fest. The aroma is funk, powerful. The appearance is hazy amber, cream colored head. The flavor is funk, fruit, bread, yeasty. The finish is tart fruit, yeasty, spicy. Nice. Interesting. Theydon_Bois (20607) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Tap at Capones Black Friday Bash, 29/11/13.
Lightly hazed golden with a good sized off white covering.
Nose is tarte dark fruitage, woody twang, earthy, dank light, toffee notes.
Taste comprises tartened fruit skins, grape, apple core, yeast esters, light sugar and caramel, funky backdrop.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tarte closure.
Ok sour - lacks a little depth overall. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Love it. Has the same qualities as Matilda with the funk of the Brett. Well done. On tap at Hawthornes in Philly.
