I tend to be skeptical of fruited-up saisons. But Terrapin makes great beers, and this is the first saison of theirs I've had the chance to get my hands on. Thanks to cubanbeerguy for the bottle. Tasted 25 August 2013.

Pour is beautiful. Clear pale golden yellow. A thick column of bubbles rising up. Three fingers of fizzy white head, mostly big bubbles. Excellent retention, thick bands of lacing. Wowzer.

Smell is really nice. About half sweet, canned peaches, and half fruity-floral saison esters. A really nice blend, as the juicy character of both forms a bridge between them. Sweet, luscious, and quite inviting.

Taste is kinda flat. It tastes more like peach flavoring, less like juicy peaches. Sort of astringent, and surprisingly flavorless, especially after the smell. Odd.

Whoa. This is overcarbonated. So overcarbonated that I have a hard time tasting the beer. Sometimes high carbonation helps the flavors dance, but here it's so active that they barely touch my tongue, and I can't get a read on them. Toned down just a touch, it would be really nice. But there's a tipping point with high carbonation, and this is clearly beyond that point. Also has a dryness that, while it may be typical of saisons, doesn't really work with the juicy roundness of the beer. The main issue is that the feel markedly detracts from my enjoyment of the beer.

A two-faced beer. The appearance and smell had me thinking of great things, but the taste and the feel were far below that level. Overcarbonated and dry, two elements that really don't fit with the beers aromas and flavors.

A: Light, cloudy peach with a foamy white head that's well retained.

N: Fresh peach flavor on top of straw, attic, and hints of earth and lavender. Very floral. Some lemon zest in here. Gentle sugar sweetness.

T: Very earthy, and slightly sour. There's a significant hop presence to this over a light citrus/peach sweetness. Can be a little soapy.

M: Light and well carbonated. Not particularly dry, so it's not really a great representation of the style.

O: A solid beer with some great peach presence. However, each time I sip this, I can't help but feeling it's missing dimension and an extra oomph to take it over the top.
