12 oz bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. Hazy amber color. Tart, fruity and spicy aroma with mango, apricot and clove. Sweet flavo with fair amount of tropical fruits, clove, pepper and low bitterness. Fairly tasty, a bit too sweet for me.

On tap at Goose Island OHare. Pours a cloudy copper with a nice head. The aroma is yeasty with hints at clove, banana, and an array of spices. All aspects are tastefully balanced. The mouthfeel is medium and works well. The finish is barely bitter with a fair amount of hops, but this is mostly about the esters. I get vinous hints with lots of clove and coriander. This is very drinkable.

Bottle. Meant to resemble Orval (or i think i remember someone saying this to me, could be wrong). This is sweeter, with less noticeable brett characters than you would find in Orval. Still pleasant Belgian-ness, with soem slightly dry bitter hops in the finish.

Pours a nice medium amber. The nose is some spicing, orange citrus, sweet malts, herbal hops, and some yeast. Comes across the palate Initially it tasted slightly sour like many Belgian ales but changed to a complex floral taste and finished like a traditional Belgian, with a lingering finish.

I swear Id had this before having a glass at Romans this week, but apparently I am confusing Matilda with memories of Pere Jacques. And Im glad I corrected this situation, because where I found Pere Jacques to be pretty mediocre and boring, I found this beer to be considerably more enjoyable and interesting. This beer pours a light golden color with a pretty minimal head. At Romans, it was served in a long-stemmed glass reminiscent of a martini glass (what I dont know about glassware could fill a library). Aroma was a touch fruity and spicy. Flavor offered a rich sweetness paired nicely with a touch of very-Belgian-y maltiness. There was also considerable fruitiness, full mouthfeel, and yeastiness that was also reminiscent to Belgian beers Ive had (like fresh Tripel Karmelet). Mouthfeel was pretty rich. This is really a very good beer and I would recommend it. I had it on tap at Romans in Milwaukee.

Very fruity and spicy indeed. A yeasty citrus on the nose, with flavors of lemon, pineapple, cotton candy, and some other various green flavors, also subtle caramel. Flavors are similar, very good Belgian.

08 bottle. Amber hue, with an off-white, thin head. Full bodied with a rich aftertaste. Great attempt at creating a Belgian style ale, Citrus-y, orange peel flavour and aroma, with just a hint of creaminess.
