look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy, medium brown in color. Very similar to Matilda, except a little darker. Scent is slightly tart, and very wheat/yeasty on the nose. Taste is similar; starts out mild and grainy in flavor, like the regular Matilda, then moves towards a more tart flavor. The lambicus gives it a slightly sour taste profile, but it's very, very mild and drinkable.

Overall, a good, mild tart beer that lends itself to being incredibly drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Light brown, short tan head (as normal for a growler) leaves some lacing

Smell: Some spicyness to the nose, and strong brett funk character

Taste: Malty, nice brett tartness (tart but not really to the point of sourness), fruity flavors. Very tasty. Also a little spice on the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, good carbonation, dry finish

Overall: This is fantastic. Wish I had some regular Matilda to compare with, but I am very happy I could pick this up. I don't notice any real down sides to having this in a growler vs tap.
