heard this was born from a mistake. lots of good things were. clear, looks just like matilda, maybe even a shade lighter from what i can remember of it. the head is a solid inch and pretty thick but not all that long lasting. the nose here is more tart than sour, surprising given the lacto rather than brett in this. its cool though, as its mouthwatering and fruity like peaches and pears, but not a huge pucker. the flavor too shows only moderate acidity, with a lot more grain base than i remember matilda having. the lacto finishes it super dry though, and the sourness creeps up as it warms. i still get great belgian yeast fruit tones from this, and i like it a lot. i may even like it better than the original. drinks much lighter than its abv, and although it could take on a little more carbonation, still feels quite delicate and alive. overall an excellent brew.
