Goose Island continues to impress. Matilda is a nice treat.
Appearance: Pours an orange brown hue in my snifter glass a thick head stands only 1-2 fingers and falls quickly to a partial cap and collar around the glass.
Smell: Fruity and sweet but with a nice Brett sour apple twist, herbal tea, and plenty of cinnamon and some alcohol.
Taste: It is warm with alcohol but quite pleasant with a light yeasty tartness, a bready pale male attribute and perfect phenolic tropical fruits. Banana pineapple apple pear, with lemon honey and coriander. Finishes with a bit of alcohol heat and pepper on the cheeks along with just a touch of sour funk. Very nice!
Mouthfeel: Smooth medium body beer with a snap.
Drinkability: This beer is as drinkable I would expect from a 7% Belgian Strong Pale Ale. It is a great Horderves sipping beer, and yet one I won't tire of.
Hope this is helpful.

Had on tap at O'Hare airport out of a wine glass. It poured a pretty auburn-orange, really nice appearance. The nose had notes of nuts, spices, and yeast. The flavor was similar, but stronger than the nose let on. Not usually a huge Goose Island guy, but this is a good one.

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. 5/21/14 is the date
A: the best part about this beer. It's a golden orange color with a thin layer of thick head and whisper lace on the glass
S: slight aroma or hops and orange peel
T: follows the smell right down to being slight.
M: light on the tung. I can see this being great on a hot day
O: a bit disappointed with this one. With the reputation goose island's rare and mainstream beers has. I was hoping the less popular would still be really good.
