Goose Island Matilda

Gorgeous. Even a visiting Chicago native was singing praises about this beer after I very regretfully let him take a sip.

Goose Island is a great brewery and I've been finding some small batch brews, which lets me know that they keep experimenting. I bought this one at New Beer Distributor, but I also found it on tap at Schoolbred's in the East Village. It's a Belgian-style that has a beautiful brown-amber color. It has a nice light flavor with a hint of fruit. It has a fresh smell and you can sense the presence of good hops, although they don't have a starring roles. There's a slight alcohol bite at 7%, but this might be one of the best Belgian-style beers I've had from a US brewery.
