Denoted "Volume 7" in the Terrapin Side Project series, Maggie's Farmhouse Ale comes packaged in the usual 22-ounce bomber bottle and is trimmed crown-to-neck with golden foil. Peeling away the gilt and cracking the crown of the cellar-cool specimen in-hand, a brisk pour reveals a brew that is bronzed clover-honey golden orange in color with a thick cap of creamy, glossy, bright eggshell-white foam. As the head settles into a rocky sheet, drippy broken rings of lacing cling to the sides of my Duvel tulip.

The aroma is grassy-sweet with a splash of ripe muskmelon and a soft pear-apple note, but despite the flowery fruitiness, the olfactory profile is deeply grounded in something a little funky. A murky whiff of mushrooms, wet wool blankets, and damp, and dark loamy earth tag-team with a thin edge of peppery spice and a zip of acidity to provide depth and add contrast to the mellow floral character.

The taste is fruity and crisp with a bone-dry finish. Essences of green grapes, crispy freestone peaches and juicy smashed green apples are spritzed with a subtle dose of bittering tangerine skin oil. A persistent palate-drying leafy grassiness dries the finish to dusty near-perfection.

The drink is light-bodied with appropriately zesty carbonation. Delicious, very drinkable, and highly refreshing.

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.
