Clear deep gold pour with a short-lived, 1 finger, off-white head. Lots of floral, spicy, citrusy hop aroma with candi-sugar, pear and bubblegum notes. Flavor is melon, candi-sugar, orange, spice, and bubblegum. Somewhat thin mouth feel with moderate carbonation.

TKA300 (105) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Drank from a bottle, poured an orange color with a medium head. Smelled of citrus mostly. Tasted mostly of citrus and a little bit of caramel. Aftertaste lasted for a long time, pretty solid beer, but had a little too many flavors going on at once for my liking. Somehow found a way to be too complex for me to love.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 29, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 355mL 2007 ed. Pours a beautiful dark orange/amber with a a rather large off-white head with great retention. Aromas of orange peel, yeast, cloves, red licorice, and maybe pineapple- very complex. Taste adds some slight spicy hops, caramel malt, and retains the citrus and spicy elements. Long, dry, malty aftertaste. Sweet, well-integrated. 11/29/2008 7/4/8/4/16=3.9

355mL 2006 ed courtesy of ryan. Pours a hazy, deep orange with a towering, HUGE, white head with infinite retention and big lace. Aroma is dominated by fresh, farmy Brett, hay, fresh orange, grapefruit, fresh lime and citrus notes. Taste is farmy, dry, spritzy, massively refreshing body voided of sugars from the Brett. Peach, grapefruit, fresh light fruit complexity abounding. Wow- GI really ruined what was once an epic beer. 12/19/2010 8/5/8/4/16=4.1

355mL 2005 ed courtesy of ryan. Still pours with a massive white head and excellent retention. Aroma is now not just Brett but also some sour pedio culture funk. Lemon, cantaloupe, sweet melons, cotton candy abounds in the nose. I mean it really is Cable Car caliber here. Taste is dry, sweet melons still present with sweet tropical fruits. 12/19/2010 9/5/8/4/16=4.2

There should be separate entries for the Bretty and soured versions and the sweet Belgian blonde version.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 27, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2010 11/27/08 Pours hazy honey amber with a 2 finger light beige head, very good retention. Aroma is yeast, citrus, licorice, plenty of spicy and citrus hops and a generally fruity tone. Flavor is much the same as aroma, though yeast tone is less prevailant and citrus notes with citrus and spicy notes take over. FInish is sweet, with anise, dried orange peel and yeasty breade rolls. Body has a slick yet astringent quality. Alcohol content seems like it would be 2-3 points higher. Great beer. Update: Lacto infected 4/16/10 bomber. Pours amber with a 2-3 finger frothy white head. Aroma is full of lactic acid, underripe tree fruit, dusty old hay, light basement funk, a little citrus, ginger and some lighter spices. Flavor is also heavy on lacto, theres some caramel, hints of dark fruit and anise, sour peaches and basement funk. Palate is medium bodied, and fairly dry throughout with a medium, lively carbonation. Good stuff, gotta save a couple bottles back to compare with normal Matilda.

Bottle, The Offie, Leicester. Hazy orange colour with a steady thin off white head. Yeasty , fruity aroma. Pleasant mouthfeel. Some citrus hop in the flavour with a hint of spice. Definite orange notes. Plenty going on, and well crafted. A little on the sweet side but thoroughly enjoyable.

taalhiker (190) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2008
From bottle. Part of November Dayton Beer Tasting event. Pours hazy orange/amber with small head. Aroma of yeast, oranges and spice. Flavors match the aroma with the addition of malt and dark fruit. Decent attempt at a Belgian.
