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.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #79 (Aug 2013):

A hell of a lot better than the usual generic fruit beer—not that Terrapin would do such a thing. More of an American Farmhouse Ale rather than its Belgian counterparts. Great use of fruit as well ... this is the way we want to taste it, this is a beer of course.

STYLE: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 5.3%
AVAILABILITY: Summer Seasonal

LOOK: Big head, hazed pale golden hue

SMELL: Ripe peaches, grassy grain, nutty yeast, lemon pith, faint taffy

TASTE: Smooth, sufficient crispness, fluffy body, peach skin, earthy, yeast, peppery, mild twang, dried grass, hint of esters, herbal, biscuity, mild phenolic funk; finishes dry, with a dried peach aftertaste

Perfect amount of peach flavor. Not over powering.

Very disappointed in this beer. The color was a golden yellow with very minimal head. Once poured it smelled like rotten peaches and it tasted the same

Appearance is pale gold with a white fizzy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is dry and peachy, with a honey-like sweetness. Taste is also peachy, tart, dry, lightly sweet and. Mouthfeel is very bubbly and it has a tangy after taste. Overall a very enjoyable beer for summer, but not one that it earth shattering.

Exceptional, near creamy, bone-colored head over a pale golden body. The head is very durable.

Aroma is a bit too unappealing and soapy despite a nice and natural aroma of fresh peaches. I think the peaches just don't play that well with the hops.

The flavor seems a little better overall, even through the fresh peach is less obvious.

O: rather drinkable (not very funky) farmhouse.

My first beer from Terrapin, thanks to HopDiggityDawg.

It's thick, as in, while the color is a dark yellow, it can't be seen through. It's not so much a haze or cloudiness as just a thickness in the body. The head has a yellowish tint and, while it immediately rises high, it doesn't maintain that height. It does still keep a sturdy half finger and leaves moderate lacing.
The smell is certainly of peaches, and I feel the mark of a well-made fruit beer in particular, along with the strong malts base, which this beer has, is how fresh and in a way raw the fruit comes out. This is all fresh peach in the smell without overpowering, while the wheat-like malts that support it are strong but let the peach prevail.
The peach is just as fresh in the taste, a little sweet but far from cloying while a bit tart as well. It avoids the unnatural sourness that comes into the finish of some fruit beers. It's not crazy or thrilling, but it is a pleasure to drink, showcases fresh peach, and offers the malts to boot.
The body also avoids being weak or thing, sitting somewhere between light and medium, though after a resolute crispness, the liveliness sort of flashes out a little.
Overall this is a very well-constructed fruit beer.
