Appearance - Pours hazy and brilliant orange with a white, near finger width head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving behind a mostly barren surface and a thin, broken ring of suds around the edge of the glass. No lacing.

Smell - Peach, peach and more peach. Not much else; maybe a faint hint of spice.

Taste - Follows the nose. Big blast of peach upfront with a hint of spice, then.... nothing. Flavor dies down quickly, leaving a vague trace of the sweet peach flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light-bodied with light carbonation. Drinks easy, but a bit flat on the end.

Overall - Promising brew that doesn't add much past that initial peach flavor. As a saison you'd expect a bit more complexity, but there's not much to find here.

Artufical aroma of peaches but the taste was better. Very flat with an unpleasant feel and a spjce,perhaps pepper that took away instead of inhancing the taste

Full disclosure, I'm not generally a fruit-beer kinda guy but was recently very impressed with a seasonal watermelon brew so I figured I'd roll the dice on another fruit beer. I am a fan of most of Terrapin's offerings but Maggie's was a big mistake on my part....and their's. While it has a decent color and appearance and pours nicely, my immediate thought upon tasting was, Nyquil. It tastes like original, green Nyquil. Perhaps it's just the way it reacts with my pH. Maybe I grabbed an old six-pack.....I don't know, but in my OPINION, Maggie's has a very medicinal taste.

Attractive gold color with minimal cap.

Aroma of slightly spiced peaches with a touch of floral in the background.

Pleasant flavor of ripe peach backed by a touch of spiciness. Not really noticing much of malt, grain, or even the Golding hops which at 22 BU I would've expected at least a whif. This is not to say the flavor is off balance or anything, just that it's a peach infused brew and that's about it. Good peach flavor though, dry and nothing cloying which is hard to do considering the richness of peach generally is due in large part to sweetness.

Light-medium texture with just enough carbonation to balance.

Not my cup of tea but I must admit they pulled it off better than I thought they would based on the description.
