Poured out as a bright hazy yellow color with a white head on top. The head comes and goes pretty quickly, there is a thin amount of retention and no true signs of lacing at all. The smell of the beer is definitely peachy, plenty of sweet fresh peach aromas on the nose with a very light hint of grain in there also. The taste of the beer is decent... it's a lot like Son of a Peach with a slight tartness in the finish. The Saison flavors are a bit on the weak side, not enough of the funk or rye/grains shining through. The mouthfeel was nicely carbonated, lighter bodied and pretty refreshing. Overall it's an average beer to me... It's more fruity than I believe it should be but will probably appeal to a wider variety of people because of that.

12 ounce bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, darkish straw-hued body with a petite, white head kept aloft by a few stray streams of bubbles.

Smell: Why, it smells downright peachy. Some creamy, wheat-flecked maltiness underneath with some modest touches of spice.

Taste: Pale malted barley and some wheat malt cut with a malt I enjoy seeing featured, acidulated malt. Moderately sweet, but it's tempered by the light phenolics, light hops, peach taste, ample carbonation, and, again, the acidulated malt. Drying, fruity, crisp yet soft-textured finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: Side Project #7 meets Peaotch. I will say I liked it better than I thought I would.

Eh. This is a saison? Really? I get a wad of peach, that frankly tastes almost artificial it's so sharp. Beyond that there is a mild saison tone, but really nothing that makes this stand out for the right reason. Feel is full of carbonation. It's an okay beer. Doesn't really hit the mark of a saison.

12oz bottle into a teku purchased as part of a mix-a-six atWegman's

The color is an apricot shade ofgolden with mild haze and streaming bubbles to a thin white head. The smell is fresh with some floral and peach fruitiness in the nose and a mild lemony tart scent. The feel is very spritzy with a mild sweetness with a moderately high carbonation and slight phenolic tinge in the dry finish.

The taste has a slight peach soda quality with a light sweetness of wheat in the taste and subtle tangy yeast flavor with slight saison-like crisp quality with mild medicinal edge as it finishes. The overall drinkability is good but it has a slight sorbate type flavor which is not overly distracting but it is there. I could probably enjoy one but the gassiness makes it hard to enjoy more than a small sip at a time.

Extra from johnyb - thanks! Served in a DryHop mini-pint glass.

A - Giant white foam slow settles to a creamy, thick cap, leaving specks of lace behind. Transparent straw body with a few stray bubbles racing around.

S - Very phenolic farmhouse yeast here, with a good deal of peach flavor as well. Not the most complex or subtle Saison, but delivers exactly as promised. Cereal grains, a surprising strawberry note, peppery, and a touch of hay and grass.

T - The taste, unfortunately, doesn't live up to the promise of the aroma. Mostly cereal grains, with a touch of phenolic yeast, and very little of the peach and other fruity goodness. Mild lemon tanginess in the finish, with no obvious alcohol.

M - Zesty, aggressive carbonation, medium-light body, and a fairly crisp finish. A tad gritty, with a touch of lingering stickiness.

D - Aside from the overly harsh carbonation it's quite easy to drink. Definitely would have been more appropriate for summer, as it's pretty refreshing. Just wish the flavor was closer to the aroma.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a hazy light orange color with a 1/2" head.

Smell: a nice apricot aroma rises from the glass.

Taste: some light wheat tones, strong peach flavors, yeast, a hint of pepper and coriander, and a mild bitterness create a well balanced beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Very crisp from start to finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a nice fruity saison that is refreshing and easy drinking. One pint is more than enough in a session.

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.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of fresh peaches with a lighter aroma of wheat and peppery saison yeast.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of pale malts with a hint of slightly sour wheat notes. That is followed by light flavors of slightly spicy saison yeast and slightly stronger than moderate flavors of natural fresh peaches but without a lot of sweetness - just light sweetness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp but slightly thin/watery.

O: I enjoyed this one more than I thought I was going to...the peach has a natural flavor unlike many of the other peach beers that I have tried. There is something that I cannot quite place which makes the mouthfeel on this beer a little off-putting.
