Just had my 1e and 2e Matilda at the Hyatt in Chicago. Great taste, nice after taste. Needed to convince the barman to serve it somewhat warmer. 5 degrees celsius is too cold for this beer. But pour is in a cognac glas and wait some time and magic happens.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

bottled on 04JUN14. It's been a long time since I had this one. It never was a favorite of mine & I don't recall it being fermented with brett
A 3.75 - hazed golden-orange body covered in a layer of ivory foam
S 4 - yeast, bread, spice, floral, tangy, earthy, aromatic malt
T 3.75 - delicate flavors with tangy brett, spice, bread, floral, fruity, earthy
M 4 - medium body, moderate carbonation, finishes clean, dry, and nicely balanced
O 4 - better than I remember. It drinks so smoothly and easily. I might have to buy this more than once every 5 years. Best brett beer I've had, as I'm usually not a fan.
