look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.

Pours a hazy orange color with almost no foam. Aroma is redolent of peach/apricot and a kiss of sweet malt.

First sip is a nice sweet peach flavor, with a semi-dry finish. Very refreshing and pleasing to drink. Peach flavor is dominant, but not overwhelming and really works nicely with this beer.

This is a nice flavorful summer beer. Another solid offering from Terrapin

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.

Pours yellow orange and very hazy. Just an ok head that in all actuality is pretty weak for a farmhouse. The smell hits hard with the smell of peach as expected. The taste is pretty bad. It tastes like a weak summer ale that someone pours a bunch of peach syrup into. I'm not apposed to fruit beers if they blend right and are very drinkable and this is neither. The mouthfeel is very carbonated to the point where it is irritating. I'm a fan of Terrapin but this should be retired.

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.

A: Pours a straw yellow with a decent white head.

S: Aroma brings soft peach puree, mild grain, a bit of estery spiciness.

T: Taste brings mild peach, muted saison esters (very light clove and vanilla cake), dry grain, moderate hop bitterness. Finishes a bit watery.

M: Light-bodied with zingy carbonation.

O: The base saison is a bit too muted and dry. A little more residual sugar and expressive ester character would go a long way here.

Pours hazy golden yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, dryer peaches and somewhat sugary. In the taste, dryer peaches, peach skins and cinnamon like spice, with a mellow sweetness. A spicy bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry cinnamon and spice, with a note of peaches in the aftertaste. On tap it was more sweet, and more peach.

3.59/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of a soapy white head.

Smell: Fresh peaches, funk, pepper, and spices

Taste: Follows the nose closely. Slight sweetness and tartness upfront with more flavors of peach, hay, and coriander. Very mild bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp with medium carbonation. Slightly watery.

Overall: Starts promising with the aroma, but falls off a bit from there. Still a decent beer though, and worth a try for someone who likes saisons.

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.
