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.

On-tap at Coopers Tavern.

A: Pours a burnt orange with a small off-white head.

S: Aroma brings musty stone fruit, potpourri, slight vinous, bready grain.

T: Notes of apricot, floral, wet hay, light lactic tartness, mild earthy note, caramel.

M: Light-bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Certainly a more interesting beer than regular Matilda. I would have it again.
