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 @ MPLS LOL. Thanks Caleb! Pours a hazy orange appearance with a tan head. Somewhat spicy, orange fruity, spicy, a bit yeasty aroma. Tangy, orange fruity, light tart, a bit cherry, herbal, spritzy flavor.

Bottle at tasting. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was herbal, floral, citrus, mils spice with a hint of barnyard. The flavor was herbal, floral, earth, toasted cereals, and citrus. Decent, but not my favorite from these guys.

BMMillsy (1146) - Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Grabbed a 750 ml bottle at Whip In while visiting Austin an poured it right here. Batch #8, Mar 2013. Pours light golden and slightly cloudy with a fluffy one finger head. Aroma of sweet honey and banana, yeast, and pineapple. Bit of peppery spice at the slightly dry end. Light and fruity yet slick mouthfeel. Very much tripel like. High carbonation. Awesome label. Jester King (and Texas) officially ticked!

jkwood04 (3403) - Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2013
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber/copper with a big, lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some light fruits, caramel and pale malts, plus a good amount of floral hops. Flavor about the same, with a nice blend of spice, fruits, and hops. Average texture. An interesting beer, but it could be a little better.

angrypirate06 (1374) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle that has about 9 months or so on it. Hazy orangish copper pour with slightly tan head and solid retention. Nice lacing as well. Nose is biscuits, light grain, slight funkiness (not Brett though). Flavor is grainy, lightly tannic, pretzels, some bitterness, light earthiness, leaves. Nice creamy mouthfeel, decent carbonation and a dry finish. Bit of warmth from the alcohol on the end as well.

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a cloudy light golden color with a sticky off-white head. Apple cider, green grape, and Belgian yeast nose. A rich, nearly syrupy mouthfeel. A lot of malt of the front and on the finish. But, quite spicy in the middle. Too much so for a saison. There’s a little earthiness underlying it all. I couldn’t drink a lot of this, but I respect what they’ve done.

Bottle from Errl. The pour is a rusty gold color; looks brownish-orange in the glass, with a big fluffy off-white head with some staying power. Estery fruity aroma; peaches, apple tart, and apricot come to mind, with wild flowers and grassy herbs. The flavor uncovers a sharp alcoholic bite as I’m reminded of the relatively high abv. Tangy and sweet with fruity esters abound. There’s quite a bit of bready malt that thickens the body, with funky yeast and some spice on the back end, but it mostly comes across as an alcoholic tang. This is a good beer; it’s almost a great one. It could stand to be a touch more drinkable, for a farmhouse brew. But make no mistake, I enjoyed this one.
