Notes/Commercial Description:
“Provision Ale” is a rough translation of the French term “bière de provision“, which was sometimes used to describe special beers that were suitable for extended storage and aging. Brewed from relatively simple, straightforward ingredients, Mad Meg is golden colored and quite strong, at over 9% ABV. Its palate intertwines delicate farmhouse esters with earthy, spicy hops and clean malt flavors. The name “Mad Meg”, refers to a peasant woman from Flemish folklore, also known as “Dulle Griet” or “Dull Gret”, who leads an army of women to pillage hell. She’s famously depicted in Pieter Brueghel the Elder’s 1562 painting by the same name.

Poured this crazy lady into my 668 Neighbor tulip. Three fingers of white head, hazy orange body: a pretty beer to look at.

Not a whole lot going on in the nose. A bit citrusy, mainly lemon. I may even be smelling some landscaping in there as well. Not that that's a bad thing.

Very tasty. A bit of citrus, a bit of sweet, a bit tart. Very well-rounded. Slightest alcohol burn. My bottle says 8.9% as opposed to the 9.6% it says on the description here.

Other than the slight burn going down, this beer is quite smooth.

Dig it.
