Appearance 3.5: Pours out a hazy, opaque, light orangey gold. Large head and lots of carbonation bubbles; a good attempt to mimic bottle conditioning.

Smell 4.0: Wow, very nice bouquet. Lots of peach scents and nothing artificial about the bouquet. I also detect yeast and barley and a light lemony citrus. Promising.

Taste 3.75: Front is very dry, but there is a pleasant hint of yeast there. Middle is also dry, but there are very subtle peach tastes and a hint of Belgian yeast spiciness. Finish features more subtle peach tastes, barley and more Belgian yeast. I also detect a light hop in here, maybe a Styrian Goldings. Aftertaste is short, dry and provides one more hit of subtle peachiness.

Mouthfeel: 3.5: Carbonation level is good for this style of beer.

Overall 3.75: Taken as a whole, this is a solid seasonal brew. I do have one quibble. If this beer is supposed to be a Saison, why don't they just call it a Saison? It's like calling a lager: "light German-style beer cold conditioned for several months due to the unique yeast strain." Regardless, this beer is just peachy enough with absolutely no artificial or overwhelming flavors. This beer is refreshing, light and well-balanced. Given its dryness, I could see this going well with food and is almost sessionable. Whether or not you choose to do so depends on whether you really like the peach or not. Purists will be offended, I am sure.

Appearance is pale gold with a white fizzy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is dry and peachy, with a honey-like sweetness. Taste is also peachy, tart, dry, lightly sweet and. Mouthfeel is very bubbly and it has a tangy after taste. Overall a very enjoyable beer for summer, but not one that it earth shattering.

Exceptional, near creamy, bone-colored head over a pale golden body. The head is very durable.

Aroma is a bit too unappealing and soapy despite a nice and natural aroma of fresh peaches. I think the peaches just don't play that well with the hops.

The flavor seems a little better overall, even through the fresh peach is less obvious.

O: rather drinkable (not very funky) farmhouse.

My first beer from Terrapin, thanks to HopDiggityDawg.

It's thick, as in, while the color is a dark yellow, it can't be seen through. It's not so much a haze or cloudiness as just a thickness in the body. The head has a yellowish tint and, while it immediately rises high, it doesn't maintain that height. It does still keep a sturdy half finger and leaves moderate lacing.
The smell is certainly of peaches, and I feel the mark of a well-made fruit beer in particular, along with the strong malts base, which this beer has, is how fresh and in a way raw the fruit comes out. This is all fresh peach in the smell without overpowering, while the wheat-like malts that support it are strong but let the peach prevail.
The peach is just as fresh in the taste, a little sweet but far from cloying while a bit tart as well. It avoids the unnatural sourness that comes into the finish of some fruit beers. It's not crazy or thrilling, but it is a pleasure to drink, showcases fresh peach, and offers the malts to boot.
The body also avoids being weak or thing, sitting somewhere between light and medium, though after a resolute crispness, the liveliness sort of flashes out a little.
Overall this is a very well-constructed fruit beer.
