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.

A sweet floral nose with hints of yeast, spice, and a tartness. A cloudy orangish amber pour with frothy, mostly lasting, off-white head and medium lacing. There is initial hay/straw taste followed by a slight sweetness and a hint of spice and alcohol in the finish. There also seemed to be a pleasing citrus note in the mix. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Dry and quick. To me, overall, not a typical Belgion Strong Ale, but I liked it all the same. It had a Saison quality that I think would complement many different dishes.

Served in a Jester King goblet. Too much body and alcohol. Isn’t all that yeast forward either. Strange character coming from the use of Noble hops; seems like they used way too many and they didn’t last long. Not impressed with the concept or execution.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by Dan (danielnovak3) before the Cubs vs. Sox game. Served in a Bell’s tulip. A: Quite the gusher. We lost about 30% of the beer in a little under a second. Once we got it to calm down it was poured very carefully. The pour yielded a body with a cloudy orange color with golden yellow highlights. A large pure white head formed on the pour and receded slowly leaving behind some splotchy lace. S: Big fruity esters, spiced yeast and tart citric acid all make up the nose. There is a nice wheaty malt base, but the yeast and tart smells really dominate. T: The taste is much like the nose, but is more balanced out by the malt base. The yeast is a little spicier with some light pepper corn as well. There is a creamy berry sweetness in the there as well with some fruity alcohol and a tart finish. M: Medium bodied with a creamy middle and a drying finish. Semi tart finish. O: A little too big for my liking. I like my saisons a little less chewy, but it was solid all around. I would definitely lay this guy (or girl) down for a little while. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-28-2012

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours almost clear rusty copper with a ton of carbonation and a big head that dissipates after a few. Spicy, fruity aroma with hints of clove, black pepper, kiwi, and fennel. Spritzy medium body is very peppery with a nice malty backbone and hints of cherry and prune. Finish is spicy and dry.

Fruity apricot aroma. Cloudy orangish gold with thick white head that lasts a little too long and leaves tons of lacing. Bready and fruity. Nice alcohol presence. Hints of Chardonnay. A little bit of bite with a sour/bitter finish.

Bottle @ BBF 12. Pour slightly hazy chestnut-brown, with a small white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, slight acidic cherries, lemon-peel. Taste has some fruity sweetness, and some slight bitterness. (Faint hints of acid?) Average body, with a fizzy carb.
