Pale straw yellow color, cloudy body, and active carbonation, which formed a three finger thick head crowning above the rim of the glass, gave this beer an appropriately rustic look. The smell was dominated by peaches with some hay like hops occasionally poking through. The taste had a rich peach flavor right up front, with a bit of powdered sugar mid palette, some white pepper and clove like spicy phenols following, and a tart acidity towards the finish. The body was airy, light, and quenching. There was a Sichuan pepper-like tongue numbing activity in the aftertaste. Unlike a lot of the American interpretations of Saison, this one was actually dry, spicy, and refreshing.

From The Fridge's cooler to my ice chest and into a glass on yet another hot, hazy, humid summer's day.
From the bottle: "Maggie's Peach Farmhouse Ale delivers a wholesome host of peach flavor and a refreshing spiciness that will get your juices flowing. Brewed with Georgia grown peaches and a lot of love, this Old World style of beer will take you back to a simpler time."; "'Just like Granny used to brew'"; "Malt beverage brewed with peaches"; "Give Peach a Chance"; "Seasonal:2013".
Musical accompaniment: RvsTM covering Dylan's "Maggie's Farm".
Man, the heat is making it tough to get anything done! Even a gentle pour erupted in a massive two-plus fingers of rocky, bone-white head with good retention in the face of the oppressive humidity. Color was a hazy orangish-yellow. Nose was very peachy, leaving no doubt that some peaches had been harmed in the production of this beer. Mouthfeel was medium and rather than being deadly sweet as the nose had led me to expect, it actually had an unexpected tartness. Still, it was evident that peaches were the predominant flavor. Finish was dry and spicy, leading me to wonder what type of yeast had been used. I would guess Saison if I had to. Really a nice, interesting beer to cut the heat. Unlike Dylan who doesn't want to work on the farm no more, I would drink this again.
