Goose Island Ale, Belgian Style, Matilda

Inspired by the great Trappist ales, our complex Belgian Style Pale Ale is fermented with the wild yeast Brettanomyces. Matilda pours a golden sunrise color with dried fruit and clove aromas, a spicy yeast flavor, and a satisfying dry finish. According to legend, a grateful Countess Matilda founded a monastery where, over centuries, monks have been brewing ale unique in character. While in Belgium, we were inspired by the story and the monks' beer. We returned to Chicago and brewed our homage--a Belgian Style Pale Ale named Matilda. We don't need to be the only beer you drink. We just want to be the best beer you drink. Goose Island Beer Company was born Friday, May 13, 1988. We remain relentless in our craft.
