look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

The beer came out naturally cloudy (some would even call it murky), pale, and developed a decent sized head. The smell was a invigorating combination of tart, sweet, and floral aromas, and deeper breaths revealed a significant hop presence. The taste was a tart and hoppy combination not usually seen anywhere. There was not much sweetness, and late in each sip some clove like spiciness and lemony sourness started to creep in. The mouthfeel was bone dry, and refreshingly light.

I've seen many American interpretations of Saisons use exotic ingredients like lavender and end up being too sweet and flowery. This beer on the other hand was all grain based, which made it feel rustic and authentic. I could certainly imagine this being made in a farmhouse. I wish that Terrapin would keep this into their regular lineup and get rid of one of the weaker entries in their lineup. This is just perfect for the hot local summers.

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!

3.9/5  rDev +2.1%
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.
