Thanks to AtlCarl for this bottle, the last man standing from our last trade...luckily to be replenished as soon as the cold front from hell leaves town. 12 oz. bottle with typical Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles label.

Pour is a fizzed, fuzzy yellow that's clearer than I'd expect from the style. The nose is a rip-snorter of a Georgia peach covered with sweet sugar which, I must add, is quite a pleasing mental image. Farmhouse? Not unless it's in the background of the pin-up. Outstanding start.

Maggie's Peach Farmhouse Ale brings a sunny, peachy smile to a scene that seems to be trending heavier & darker all the time. Light ripe peach explodes out of the beer like taking one right in the kisser during a harvest fruit fight. Lovely, dry yeast bite that yields a tartness that sets off the peach sweetness nicely. Flecks of grain, zingy spices, touch of other light fruits rounds out the experience. Flits through my teeth like so much air, & vanishes about as fast.

This might be the surprise of the year; the peach/farmhouse combo complements one another like conservatives after a Tea Party electoral rout. Excellent beer & one of the better I've tasted from Terrapin.

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.

12 ounce bottle poured into snifter

A - pours up light straw with a towering, fluffy head that manages to stay around for awhile. Loads of sticky lacing remain.

S - one word: peaches

T - basically a very tart peach flavor giving way to a dry yeasty finish. There are some metallic notes present as well.

M - great carbonation

O - nice offering, easy to drink

A: A pale peach-orange color upon the pour yields a monstrous cornsilk white foam head that was very audible, pitty and pockety around the edges with large soapy pockets. Chunky, soapy, lace adores the glass, visible carbonation doesn't seem as strong on the insided. Longtivity on the head retention, dense clarity with micro-bran particles floating about on the end of the pour.

S: Nice sweet and tart mixture of peaches, hints of strawberry quick powder and light funk of oranges.

T: Flavor was tart peaches on first impression, touch of straw and pale grains, again light funk with minor hints of orange. Touches of wheat and dry alcohol come on the close.

M: Crisp mouthful, active, lots of tingly senstaion, has a smooth creaminess when things settle.

O: Overall crisp, nice tartness, the peaches add some nice influence,but wish the peaches were just a bit more fresh, sweet and pronounced. Decent summer time quencher.
