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.

Wow. A delicious Belgian style beer. One of the few times an American brewer nailed this difficult style. Aroma was big and full. Applesauce, pear, and melon with that farmhouse funk. Pour was a beautiful cloudy gold with a two finger white head. Taste was very sweet and tasty. The big light fruit flavors filled the mouth. Apple and pear were dominant, with bubblegum and yeast coming out more as the beer warmed. The beer was a tad too sweet halfway through the glass, but the nice yeasty funk and decent carbonation distracted you from it. All in all a great beer

750 bottle. Pours murky yellow with a small white head. Nice yeasty musty nose with a hint of lemon. Taste is a mix of subtle spice,some mild citrus, tons of yeast, and a decent dose of alcohol. Nice almost strong saison style beer.

Terminus (3346) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 5, 2012
bottle-purchased at Spec’s in El Paso, TX May 2012, consumed in St Louis with Vyvvy in June 2012-pours hazy bright orange with a rocky white head with medium carbonation. nose is lite banana, sweet citrus, lite melons. flavors are bright fruits, lite melons sweet pale malt husks. decent long husky finish with lite bitterness. Dont know how old this beer is, but JK has only been in EP since April, so im sure it wasnt that old. Decent for what it was, but pales in comparison to some of their other offerings.

mcberko (9323) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from xpimptastikx (thanks Michael), pours a murky orangey brown with a small white head. Aroma of orange peel, spicy hops, yeast, and almost a chili pepper. Flavour is very spicy and floral, with dirty earthy notes, spices, orange peels, and loads of yeast. Such a perfect mouthfeel, balanced with spices, earthiness and yeast. A most wonderful yeasty Belgian strong.

Pours hazy orange with a large white head. Smells of wheat, farmhouse funk, and a bit of earthy, spicy hoppiness. Taste is a bit funky, farmhouse-like, with some bitter citruses. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Jester King Mad Meg Farmhouse Provision Ale finishes with a touch of funk.

Trevlig kryddighet. Frisk och smakrik men ändå något som fattas. Lite besk eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Acquired in a trade, straight from Austin Texas. Poured into a Mikasa tulip at 58 degrees not at 55 as the bottle suggests. Drinking this 48 hours after Jester King Noble King and I hear they’re similar.

A - Light golden brown, bits of haze, yellow edges of the glass. 2 finger crystal clear head of tiny bubbles subsides to a quarter finger with decent head lacing.

S - Pepper and old straw grass. Hint Lemons and bananas.

T - Hmm. Nice and refreshing. Starts with a very progressive pilsner taste and dry german yeast. Huge peppery spice and dry floral bitterness. Followed by caramel and farmhouse funkiness. Wow.

M - 50/50 carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium to heavy body. Sweet finish that lingers.

O - I’m very surprised by this beer. Nice and enjoyable. I should have held on to it for a while. Very delicious.

Marsiblursi (3054) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange with a creamy off white head. The aroma holds lots of spicy, grassy and fresh (dew-like) Saaz hops, pear/light tropical pineapple-ish esters, light dark fruits, grainy/spicy bread, cookies, touch of honey and spicy, light plastic phenols. The flavour is light to medium sweet, light bitter and tiny acidic with notes of spices, fruits, balanced hops and robust malt. The mouthfeel is round and light sticky with a light carbonation. Bread, honey, phenols and balanced hops on the finish. Medium bodied.

750 ml bottle courtesy of Marsiblursi. Pours slightly hazy amber with a frothy and fluffy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of good looking lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet with plums, grapes, alcohol, dry soil, hay, white pepper, lemon zest, overripe pears, pineapple, cloves, orange zest, crackers, sweet peas and hints of green apples. Taste is sweet and slightly funky with orange peal, dry soil, hay, crackers, lemon juice, overripe grapes, cloves, white pepper, plums, yeasty esters, white bread and dry wood. Mouthfeel is round, tiny dry, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and slightly bitter with cloves, dry soil, lemon zest, orange zest, white pepper, crackers, grapes, alcohol and grape zest. A bit boozy but still very good.
