Thanks goes out to Maltzilla for throwing in this awesome extra. I love Terrapin, and getting one of their side projects is always a treat!

Pours a beautiful hazy orange, with about a finger and a half of off white creamy head. The head has decent retention and leaves a little bit of lacing, but the color on this is beautiful. I wish all Saisons looked like this. When held into the light, a slow carbonation is visible.

The nose is fruity and lightly hopped. I get a lot of wheat on the nose, which is fine because I've always been a fan of wheat beers. I know that barley and other malts where used, but this smells like an all wheat brew to me. As it warms it gets even more fruity, with pears and apples coming out the most.

The taste is fruity and sweet, with a smooth wheat malt character. It's pretty straight forward and won't knock any socks off, but it's very tasty none-the-less.

Mouthfeel is about medium body, starts with a crisp (hidden) carbonation and a smooth finish. Finishes a bit dry. Drinkability is pretty good on this one, I had no problem finishing the bomber and wouldn't mind another one.

Overall, a solid example of an American Saison. I really enjoyed this. I'm not sure if it's something I would seek out again, but would never turn this down if handed to me. Thanks Diego for the chance!

Interesting beer with the peach added. I'm new to the beer reviewing side of things, so this was a first. I liked the lightness of the beer - something you could easily drink on a hot summer day. I will definitely be looking for similar beers to try over the hot months of summer!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz brown bomber, volume # but no freshness date.

LOOK: Sizeable head, shiny golden color

SMELL: Yeast funk, candied fruit, white pepper, biscuity grain, taffy, medicinal herb, faint alcohol

TASTE: Fluffy, biscuity, yeast, herbal, taffy, orange zest, crackers, mint, mild alcohol warmth, juicy, mild spice, semi-dry finish

A little off the wall but that is expected within the style, gets a bit more drinkable with each sip. Hope they revisit this one.
