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 at Söder om Småland, Malmö
Cloudy deep blond color with generous compact head. Some aroma of spices and plastic, lightly fruity. Dry mouthfeel, spicy, some fruitiness; correct bitterness; sweet oranges.
Not bad, but not exciting, compared to better products from Jester King.

beerbastard (698) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2013
750ml bottle, that pours a straw color with a fluffy head and moderate lacing. Has a strong grass malty lemon pear nose. Flavors are a bold apple citrus mix with lots of carbonation. Overall it is mostly dry. Nothing makes me think of strong Belgian, at least from the yeast. Spicy finish. Interesting label.

superspak (2684) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2013
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled in March 2013. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple, apple skin, pear, lemon zest, hay, grass, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, light caramel, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of apple, pear, lemon zest, coriander, clove, pepper, hay, grass, wheat, bread, light caramel, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, apple, lemon zest, clove, pepper, coriander, hay, grass, wheat, bread, light caramel, musty funk, and earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of malt, hop, and fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hoppy saison style. All around great balance and complexity of hop, malt, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very crisp and smooth to sip on for 9%. A very enjoyable offering.
