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.

From 0.75l bottle @ Borefts 2012. This is a cloudy honey colored one with a medium sized bubbly and light lacing off-white top. Nice but strange aroma. Light sweet, some really fruity white melon, perhaps a bit nutty as well and I get tones of peaches and canned soft citrus fruits. Quite hard to tear apart. The taste also has some nuts. Unfortunately the once that has gone bad. Also some boozy alcohol breaks through. It’s sweet but also well bitter. Quite mouthdrying and on the border of being medicinal astringent. Ends warming from the alcohol. Not sure what I thin about this one. No favorite. 28.09.2012

fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2013

Bottle 750ml. @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TFODRBSG12, Ulfborg.

Unclear matt medium to dark orange colour with a large to huge, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, fruity, moderate to hoppy, grass, light leather - funky. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, riped fruit, fruity, yeasty, wood notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120818]

Pours amber color with a considerable foamy head. Smells and tastes like fruits and hops with a sweetish malty finish. Not bad but not my favorite Jester King beer.

Bottle... Cloudy golden ale with a huge, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The nose is soapy and bready and accompanied by notes of pale grist and white pepper. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet and biscuity with fruity components of pair and apricot. Finishes bittersweet and minerally. Bottle courtesy of the ever-generous ericandersnavy!

Unfiltered golden pour. Paper white thick head with lots of lacing. Aroma of earthy spicy hops a mild fruity esters. Thick mouthfeel. Esters are focus in flavor. I get banana, apple, and some clove. Mild hop spice aroma comes through too. Fairly bitter finish. ---Rated via iPhone

phaleslu (6842) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2012
750 ml bottle from a trade with a buddy down in Houston- thanks again, Bryan! Pours a somewhat cloudy gold color with a finger of densely frothy white head. Aroma of sweet malts, dough, floral notes, grass, pears, apricots, and candi sugar. Flavor is the same with more maltiness and booziness. Medium-bodied, with medium soft carbonation and a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and finish. Nice strong Belgian farmhouse ale.

Honey, amber/gold colored pour. Big white head. Some lacing. Malty, dry yeast aromas. Some fruit - bananas. Slightly fruity flavor of dry yeast and malt. Nice.

Color is a hazy gold with a med head. I smell caramel, spice, and fruits. I taste what I smell with yeast, malt, hops, orange and cloves. Nice Ale:)!
