Terrapin Beer Co. Maggie's Peach Farmhouse Ale

Farmhouse Ales have a strong popularity and continue to grow. The Farmhouse ale is an old world style that originally brewed in winter. To be consumed trough out the summer. The Farmhouse or Saison generally are a complex style, and many have very fruity aromas and flavors with earthy yeast tones and mild to moderate tartness. I have had my share of farmhouse ale but never one with a fruit add. This one, Terrapin Beer Co., Maggie’s Peach Farmhouse Ale, 5.3% ABV, comes to me via Brewpublik ( Terrapin is out of Athens Georgia. Maggie’s pours a very light orange and yellow color with a hazy to it, and an almost two finger head that bubbles away kind of slowly. Aroma is not as peachy as you might think it to be but there is a subtle yet faint peach aroma with some yeast notes. Taste is like what you get on the aroma not much peach flavor, but what I did get was okay and there is some spiciness with slight yeast notes that make it taste more along the lines of an apricot than a peach.  The mouth feel is light with a juicy feel, and this beer finish with a nice tartness. Aftertaste is fruity with some peach/apricot that fades away after settling for a while. This is Farmhouse ale isn’t bad but the peach flavor could have been stronger. I give this a B. I would like this to have more of a full peach flavor to it. It is quit drinkable and yet refreshing. I enjoyed this and would have it again as well as recommend that you try Terrapin Beer Co., Maggie’s peach Farmhouse Ale. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
