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.

bellco33 (699) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Poured from a bottle into tulip: Pours golden with a decent white head. Aroma is malty, peppery, slight citrus fruit, resin, and funk. Taste is very boozy, lots of funk, hops, and malt sweetness. There is a lot going on with this beer and the flavors aren’t playing well together. Beer gets boozier as it warms up. Medium body, medium carbonation, really harsh. Meeh.

glennmastrange (2681) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of grain and straw, lemon for the hops, barnyard for the yeast, with honey and coriander in the background. Head is average size, fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminshing. Color is muddy, light to medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, watery, with a lively to fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. Nice Belgian Strong Ale with great flavor and feel.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2014
sample @ home, thanks veliempojot!
Musty aroma with spices and soapy citrus. Flavour is rather spicy and somewhat odd with citrus and clove. Also some alcohol-like off-flavour and funky yeasty tones behind the spices. A bit too spicy to be enjoyable.

Idiosynkrasie (6529) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2014
750ml bottle [batch #8]. Hazy golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Mild peppery spicy, yeasty aroma, vaguely fruity background in apricot and peach direction. Taste is slightly fruity, apricot and peach again, mild peppery spicy, yeasty notes and some bitter hop are responsible for a minimally biting, otherwise soft palate with fine pored carbonation.
