From BeerAdvocate Magazine #79 (Aug 2013):

A hell of a lot better than the usual generic fruit beer—not that Terrapin would do such a thing. More of an American Farmhouse Ale rather than its Belgian counterparts. Great use of fruit as well ... this is the way we want to taste it, this is a beer of course.

STYLE: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 5.3%
AVAILABILITY: Summer Seasonal

LOOK: Big head, hazed pale golden hue

SMELL: Ripe peaches, grassy grain, nutty yeast, lemon pith, faint taffy

TASTE: Smooth, sufficient crispness, fluffy body, peach skin, earthy, yeast, peppery, mild twang, dried grass, hint of esters, herbal, biscuity, mild phenolic funk; finishes dry, with a dried peach aftertaste (702 characters)

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. (322 characters)

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. (386 characters)

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. (1,232 characters)

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, golden/straw color, speckled with some orange/peach highlights and an eighth of a finger of white-colored head that immediately dissolved away into no head what-so-ever.

Aroma: Wow! Very, very, aromatic! Tons of fruity peach aromas, like standing in a peach orchard! I also get some notes of toasted malt, honey, and some barnyard-y aromas of hay and wet blanket. But the predominate aroma is peaches

Taste: Exactly like the aroma. Toasted malt up front, immediately followed by fruity peaches, a touch of cinnamon, and honey-like sweetness. There is a touch of Belgian yeast, adding some funky, barnyard-y notes at the finish, but like the aroma, the predominate flavor is peaches.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, crisp and very effervescent as there is quite a bit of carbonation. With an ABV of 5.3%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Pretty good beer. I like the fruity flavors of the peaches, but I wish that there was more toasted malt flavors to balance the fruitiness of the peaches out. That being said, I’d certainly drink this again. (1,140 characters)
