On-tap at GI 25th anniversary party

A - Reddish brown with golden accents. Hazy beer where not much light gets through

S - White vinegar, lactic acid, lemon peel, and slight farmhouse funk. Way more sour than regular Matilda. It actually reminds me of Sour Reserve.

T - Tart white vinegar up front with lemon peel. The tartness fades away to a funky, blue cheese base that reminds me of Matilda. Lemon peel and funk linger in the finish. Reminds me of a slightly funkier and more tart Matilda

M - Medium body with low carbonation. Dry finish

O - Interesting take on Matilda with more tartness and funk. I like this a bit better than Matilda but I'd like the beer better if it was fuller and thicker

Enjoyed on tap at the Goose Island 25th Anniversary party at GI Clybourn. Served in a taster glass.

A: Pours a grapefruit like color with some orange hues around the edges. A dollop of white foam forms on the pour and settles to a thin ring. Some splotches of lace are left down glass.

S: Brett up front with some mild lactic qualities to it. Some fruity esters with a nice touch of funk and citrus juice. Some light vanilla as well.

T: Tart and funky with a lot of Brett character. Tart berries, cherries and some fresh citrus juiciness. Sweet malt base with lemon zest qualities to it.

M: Light, dry and sweet. Lots of funk to it with a medium high carbonation. Great drinkability.

O: A great beer. The Brett Brux really shines with the Matilda base. I wish they would brew this more often as it was delicious.
