Golden brew screams saison, but not a lot of head on this one, sort of fizzy,then fizzles out. Aroma is spot on, lots of nice belgian sugars and some passion fruits, a sweet aroma. taste is a tad thin but a good stab at the style; not quite as dry and fruity as some; just a little bit of tartness, it could use more of an edge. Finishes up with a nice sweet tart kick.

Pretty good, but it's not quite as funk as some really good saisons. Still worth a try for lovers of the style.

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.

thanks to the GA BA that sent me this one months ago... this bottle is perhaps a year old or more (?)

poured cold from the bottle a semi-opaque honey'd straw gold to a dogfish head shaped pint glass with a healthy two finger, big bubbled, long lasting head leaving

aroma of big belgian yeasts and a hint of sour lemon citrus.

subtle tart lemon rind, and big yeasty bread forward. very subtle, no tang, only smooth.

medium bodied, big carbonation, tart to the tongue, slightly sour, dry finish.

overall, a very nice example of style, it's probably sat much longer than intended, but it still stands up nicely.

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

A - A hazy yellow color. No head or lace retention.

S - A saison, but not an overwhelming aroma. A hint of honey.

T - Citrus and honey. A bit spicy and I can even taste a Belgian style influence at the end. But very well balanced. Nice fruity aftertaste.

M - Its smooth, but low carbonation. It starts and finishes the same way. The alcohol is hidden very well.

O - Terrapin does it again. A fantastic side project! I wish they would make this a year round beer..its that good. A great refreshing beer for a warm summer's day.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Body is a hazy uniformly translucent straw yellow color. Pours with a minimal soapy white head that fades pretty quickly. No collar or traces of lacing are left behind.

S-Nose is somewhat mild and certainly saison in nature. A floral hop essence as well as a slight funky yeast come through initially.

T- Fruity upfront with a hint of apple and pear and a slightly funky yeast backbone. The finish is a combo of floral hops and pale, sweet, fruity flavors. What lingers is a moderate floral hop bitterness.

M- mild carbonation and relatively thin body. Minimal bready yeast consistency.

D- This is an alright beer by Terrapin. Slightly above average, nothing too impressive. Its a decent beer overall but it doesn't really meet my standards for the style. Could be much more complex and less ho-hum.
