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.

Tastes semi-sweet, with notes of florals, marmalade, dry hops, citrus, and a smooth finish. Not funky enough, but not bad.

Probably one of my least favorite JK offerings. Something about this beer just doesnt really do it for me. I get a very strong yeast presence, and it almost tastes a little boozy for some reason. Still drinkable, but Ill definitely take something else anytime.

mansquito (6069) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Hay Merchant, Houston tap: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is floral and a bit herbal, with some yeasty notes. Alcohol is well-covered. While drinking this, I would not have guessed it was this heavy. A little sweet. Somewhat spicy. A little dry bitterness in the finish. This was good, but for my first Jester King I wasnt blown away.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Big, funky aroma with some tartness. Light body, with a lively mouthfeel. Doesnt drink like a 9% beer... a nice saison like spiciness at the finish.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Pours a hazy dark orange with a fluffy white head. Very nice and funky aroma, grassy and peppery, a little brett, nice bright tropical fruit notes like pineapple, and a nice musty sort of barnyard character. Lots of wet grass and barnyard funk on the taste, tropical and citrus fruits, and a light refreshing brett character. Waaaayyy too easy drinking and light to be 9%.

redpooba (406) - Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2013
A hazy golden yellow with a frizzy and lingering white head. The hops and citrus hit the nose, the notes are on the front of the palate. The linger is towards the back and a bit bitter. The body is absent and quite frankly this beer barely makes it a 3.2. Decent but overrated ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours a hazy orange with fine white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is strong floral, fruity, mild alcohol and slightly musty. Mildly herbal. Flavor is sweet, grain/wheat, fruity yeast, citrus, with a mildly bitter finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and mildly dry texture.

notalush (5836) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours a turbid gold with a fluffy, lasting head - nicely rustic nose of hay, wildflowers, honey, lightly musky brett, bright acids - very soft and creamy carbonation in the mouth - medium body, fairly light, hiding the alcohol very well until the finish, why a moderate warmth arrives - sadly, the flavor has a lot of dull, neutral yeastiness to it that covers up a lot of the complexities of the beer - fairly dry for the abv - flavors of straw, wheat - spicy, peppery phenols, some rustic basement notes - somewhat unrefined brett funkiness brings a mixed bag of pleasant and off notes (a little bit of sulpher and egg shell in the mix of otherwise pleasant and subdued wildness) - warming finish starts to get stronger as the beer warms - a lot of potential, but a bit muddled and doesnt seem to know what it wants to be when it grows up.
