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.

Bottle shared at the Richmond Industry Gathering. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, big spice notes and a mild fruit finish. The taste is caramel, herbal hops, nutty and spicy notes. Medium bodied.

Bottle@Home. Sweetish and loads of hops. But it lacks some balance and complexity.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2012
Sample from a 0.75 L bottle, kindly shared by Arve_Christian. Pours a hazed orangey golden body, under a tall mostely lasting blond head. Spiced and light funky fruit aroma. Fruity flavor as well, fairly dry with fresh yeast tones and a mild sourness. Restrained malt flavor. Distinct grassy/herbal bitterness. Medium full. A refreshing tartness in the ending. Good, indeed. [Schouskjelleren 02.08.12]

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Bottle, 11/17/2012. Pours hazy, dark burnt orange, huge fluffy head, lasting retention. Aroma a cloud of fruity yeast-light pear, citrus, slightly tropical- biscuit malts and grassy hops, more berry notes in the end. Taste moderately sweet straw malts, sharp bitter herbal noble hops, clover and dry peppery yeast. Medium body, overly carbonated. Alright, but perhaps too bitter and herbal, not enough balance. Re-rate 12/2/2012: second bottle much more balanced, more malts to balance, enjoyable.

travita (4172) - Frisco, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Draft. The look is cloudy, orange in color, and had a nice foamy, white head. The smell is very fruity, nice, yeast, spice, and yeast. The taste is sweet and sour, orange, peels, and very yeasty.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
750ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Pours a cloudy, deep orange-gold colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is big, soft florals with some pears and a light citrus note. A light grass and earth with a somewhat grainy, crackery, pleasant pale maltiness and slightly spicy and dry from the yeast. Flavor is similar. Fairly spicy and herbal from the yeast up front with some floral pears, grass, esters, earth, and a few citrus notes. Lightly sweetened pale malts offer a nice balance before this finishes yeasty and spicy with a moderate, grassy and earthy bitterness, some citruses, a few florals, and clean malt backing. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a softer, medium-high carbonation. Overall, a nicely done, bigger Belgian styled beer. Fairly spicy with a nice floral backing, but well balanced with a solid, lightly sweetened pale malt backing. Good beer.

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Aroma is earthy, sweet and a touch of alcohol. Taste is smooth bitterness, carmelly sweet malts, alcohol and a touch of spicy belgian yeast.
