RATINGS: 216   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.57/5   EST. CALORIES: 270   ABV: 9%
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.

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.

Poured into a tulip. Like just about every other JK beer I’ve had, this is overcarbonated. 3.25 A: Murky yellow brown color. Many fingers of foamy white head. Not going to mention retention because it was massively overcarbonated, but much of it did stick to the glass. 3.75 S: LIke JK’s other farmhouse brews, this has a ton of herbalness in it. I can pick out specific herbs too, but I don’t know what the hell they are called. Also getting a healthy dose of wildflowers, apple orchard, barnyard funk, and dry wood. Finally, plenty of earthiness makes this a dirty, rustic nose. 3.25 T: Tastes like it smells, except that there is too much damn yeast. It was too carbonated to properly decant this, so it has to be figured into the review. Still, it’s not too bad. Again, lots of herbalness. Wildflower, apple orchard, barn, wood. Earthy with a mild bitterness. 3.25 M: Medium body (would be lighter with less yeast I presume). Too much carbonation initially that I swirled to a manageable level. Spritzy. Would have been given a better score if it wasn’t overcarbed. 3.25 D: It’s not a bad brew, but the quality control at JK needs to improve. They need to let their beers finish fermenting before they bottle them. ★ 1,223 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 18, 2013

Patrzę na oceny innych i nie wierzę. W mojej butelce była ambrozja! Aromat malin, wiśni, ciasta, rodzynek, agrestu... Po ogrzaniu bardziej triplowaty, wyszły belgijskie nuty przyprawowe i brzoskwinia. W smaku dopełnienie masakry: cudnie winogronowo - jabłkowy, słodki, bardzo musujący jak najlepsze szampany, kontra w postaci subtelnej, przyprawowej goryczki. Alkohol? Był tam jakiś alkohol? Bliskie absolutu!

from Erzbierschof, Batch #8, 8.9% - very hazy dark orange beer with a long lasting foam left; aroma of apples, oranges, cane sugar and esters; sweet and full-bodied; gentle tart sourness, light dryness and with some earthiness; short fruity and light funky finish with lingering yeasty and estery notes; hints of marzipan

Deep pumpkin-orange, very cloudy. One finger of thin, short-lived white head. Smells and tastes like a barleywine. Big malt character, like overripe oranges. A little sherry, caramel. Oddly peppery, like a saison. Fairly dry finish. Odd mix of flavors. Medium body, big-bubbled carbonation, a bit of alcohol heat on the tip of the tongue. Not my favorite. A very weird blend of flavors.

Very farmhouse and high abv and highly drinkable. Hazy coloured body. Wafting farmhouse. Interesting.

From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a capped 750mL bottle that I obtained from the Rare Beer Club. Pours hazy orange with a thick off-white head that leaves thick, rocky lace. The nose is citrus orange, caramel, corn bread, and some spicy yeast. The flavor is a touch of sweet, caramelized orange peel up front, moving to the corn bread malt and finishing with some spicy yeast and bitterness. The body is medium with average, smooth carbonation, and a long spicy and malty corn bread finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. Hazy dark yellow with a small white head. Yeast, coriander, a touch of white pepper, and a little funk in the nose. The tartness provides a nice balance to the light malt notes. Lemon pith, hay, and yeast flavors blend well ending with a slight spicy touch. Well made.
