COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mad Meg is simple in terms of ingredients with French pilsner malt, wheat, a touch of caramunich and acidulated malt, Czech Saaz hops and our farmhouse yeast. It is golden colored and quite strong at over 9% ABV. The palate intertwines delicate farmhouse esters with earthy, spicy hops and clean malt flavors.

DuffMan (6679) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle shared with Parksy. Brassy gold, very lively head that leaves a mess of lace. Sweet pale malts, overripe fruits, grassy, tangy hops. A bit too sweet and sticky for my tastes, so it was a lot to get through.

Douberd (2232) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, into a tulip. Batch 8, March 2013, ABV 8.9% Bright and sunny golden yellow colour on a light hazy body, with a tall and thick snow white head. Good retention, medium lacing left behind, nicely formed. Aroma of clear malts and grassy hops, light wheat, floral notes. Taste of grains, hops, nice fruity notes of peaches, pepper, flowers, quite bitter on the aftertaste. Very good, makes you reach for another sip rather quickly. Medium thin body, good carbonation with a bite, mildly dry palate. Overall very good, more like a saison in my book rather than Belgian ale.

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
Cloudy, yellow, very spicy, earthy, good malts up front on the nose. Well-rounded, lots of malt, restrained yeast character and some spice, really nice balance. Really nice beer.

Ferris (3944) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle - Batch 9 - Tropical fruit and grass, almost like a Tripel. Cloudy gold with a frothy white head. Fruity yeast, straw, grassy bitterness and a long finish. I can appreciate it but not my thing.

umich03jm (1943) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle, extra in a recent trade. Shared at Jeff’s. Pours hazy gold with a medium fizzy head that fades away normally. Aroma has a lot of fruity esters and yeast with some mild berries, grass, and wood. Taste brings in some spicy noble hops to mix with wood, yeast, and fruit. Fairly sweet as well. Interesting beer to try but not something I would go back to very often.

curepute (139) - New York, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Pours a hazy golden/light orange color with a two finger white head. Aroma has apple, yeast, malty, dry earth. Taste has a good level of bitterness, oranges, earthy malts, lemon, spicy, farmhouse funk. Well balanced and dry. Finishes malty, yeasty with a little booze. Not bad
