Goose Island Matilda

For some reason, I can't find my instant comments on the Goose Island Matilda (or the Black Market Hefeweizen). Though it seems several of my messages this summer have been arriving late and perhaps some of them aren't arriving at all. There's also the possibility some messages are getting deleted in my pocket before they're even sent.

I recall this beer was refreshing and the photos suggest that before leaving, it was good enough to chug, as opposed to the Black Market Hefeweizen. However, the fact that the IPA, which I wrote to be disgusting, is also gone is mind-boggling.

Note that I was at my limit with alcohol, but couldn't pass on getting the beer flight. As such I insisted that the people I was with have sips and didn't want to leave any beer to waste. Of course after leaving the bar and before entering the car, I made sure to vomit in a nearby bush. Better in the bush than in my friend's car.
