2013 Seasonal

A: Poured into a tulip. Forms a huge, fizzy white head - over half of the glass - that does eventually drop down to a thick, stable surface coating. Moderate lacing. Pale light straw in color. Lightly hazed.

S: Aroma is full of yeasty phenols and Belgian spice. Some lemon. There is a slight peach aroma to the beer that comes off more as perfume than juicy peach.

T: Taste is reminiscent of a Saison. Light, fizzy, and brightly flavored. Lemon, lemon-pepper, clove and some lighter spices. There is a bit of peach in the background, but unfortunately, it comes through with an artificial tint to the flavor. Mild sweetness.

M: Lighter bodied, heavy carbonation, spry, peppery, and virtually no carbonation.

O: A decent beer with quite the creative name (maybe a little Bob Dylan style protest against the craft beer community?) . Nothing too exciting and I couldn't see drinking this on a regular basis, but I've certainly had worse.

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.
