Texas Strong – Mad Meg Provisional Farmhouse Ale

Jester King Mad Meg Provisional Farmhouse Ale 8.9% ABV

This was a surprise for me. I got this one in a recent trip to my hometown in Texas. What I had expected to be a standard saison/farmhouse style ale turned out to be more like a citrusy version of a Belgian strong ale. Mad Meg was quite nice though, “strong like bull” and definitely different from others I’ve had in that particular style. Our credo is “stay thirsty, but stay different” right? Well this one has it in spades. Cheers!

About Jason M

Texas Style - Having grown up down south, I've grown an appreciation for the "bigger is better" mantra. Bigger and bolder flavor is something I crave in my beers. Some people are hop-heads, all they drink are IPA's and other hoppy beers. Others are big on wheat beers. Some like it dark. Me? I'm an all-the-above kind of guy. I've had a love for all varieties since I was young and that has not changed. Good beer is good beer.

I'm constantly seeking out the latest and greatest new variety, because despite having an old-time favorite beer, drinking the same old flavors over and over gets old. That being said, I've got to try something new, explore my boundaries. After all, variety is the spice of life, no?

Favorite Beers - Unibroue La Fin du Monde, Founders Backwoods Bastard, Schlafly Oak Aged Barleywine
