Goose Island Matilda (355ml Bottle)
Matilda is made with a rare yeast that suggests a fruity and spicy flavour. There is complex maltiness balanced with a profuse amount of hops.
Belgian-style ales seldom fit neatly into classic beer styles, but this category represents those "session" ales (in Belgium this means under 7% abv!) that do not fit other categories. Colour ranges from golden to deep amber, with the occasional example coming in darker. Body tends to be light to medium, with a wide range of hop and malt levels. Yeastiness and acidity may also be present.
