10.02.05 Various samples all over Denver, bottle and tap. Special thanks to Facto for half a bottle at Logan’s. Hazed orange-straw color is nearly irredescent below a short white head of large bubbles. Aroma is a knockout, one of the finest perfumes of any beer glass I’ve ever stuck my nose in. Smells like a flowering spring field on the range. Cobwebs, some saison-ish spiciness. Flavor is a blend of apple skins, underripe pear, edible flowers, but it’s maybe a bit underdone. Some honey sweetness underlying. The stuff is just good enough to make me want something more.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2018 Amber color with a slightly sweet aroma. The taste is spicy and a little bitter, but different than just hoppy bitterness. drjoeng (1481) - SINGAPORE - JAN 31, 2018
Poured out amber. 12ºSRM.
Nose had aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, anise, sandalwood, nutmeg.
Mouthfeel was dry. Active carbonation. Flavors are hardwood, clove, bandaids, nutmeg. The malt palate had flavors of wheat flour and dried bread crumbs. Finish has lingering clove oil sensation and flavor.
Overall, a really flavorful and wonderfully complex ale. Kudos to the yeast ranchers, aka brewers! ryanhunter_4 (383) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2018
765 ml bottle poured at home. Gift from Larry a year ago. Pours orange with a white head. Smells sweet and floral. Tastes sweet with a yeasty finish. Easy to drink. I quite like it.

This brewski was underwhelming. It came in a fancy bottle but did not deliver. It was bitter and had a lingering aftertaste. The bottle was not suitable to adaqute pourage. Overall was not impressed

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 Bottle from Beer Hawk advent calendar. Pours a rich auburn with an off white head. Yeasty, sweet, citrus and floral with spice, ginger perhaps. BlackHaddock (8073) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2018
12 oz bottle on 5th Jan 2018, poured into a La Chouffe stemmed tulip glass to make it feel at home (drank in California though). No sediment left the bottle, so I got a lovely clear amber bodied beer, thin white affair on top. Fairly sweet throughout with an aroma that suggests maltiness more than Belgian-ness. Taste also sweet and malty, malty molasses in fact rule the flavours. It's OK, but how it is currently a Top 50 Belgian Ale on RateBeer is beyond me; maybe some of the RateBeer guys need to actually visit Belgium before scoring this so highly; this wouldn't be in my top 100 Belgian Ales.

Bottle conditioned. Ingredients: Water, Styrian and Saaz Hops, 2-Row Barley and Caramel Malt, Yeast and Granulated Beet Sugar. Matilda is made with a rare yeast that suggests a fruity and spicy flavor. There is complex maltiness balanced with a profuse amount of hops.

2 years old bottle, pours amber and cloudy with some sediments, medium head with good retention, frutal aroma, sweet flavour, full body. Cimbasso (1083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2017
Sampled from a bottle at Symphony Centre, Chicago. Darkish amber colour with a big white head.Malty aroma. The taste is sweet, dominated by caramel malts and sugar, but with notes of cloves and other spices. Quite yeasty and a lot of alcohol in the taste. Mouthfeel is good. Not bad bad, but just a little too sweet and slightly undercharacterised for me.
