Terrapin Maggie’s Peach Farmhouse Ale is a refreshing summer brew with a peach kick. Heavy peach aroma coming from this light amber pour with a nice head. Taste is peachy with a nice malt balance and a touch of sour. Maggie’s Peach may be too fruity for some but is very well executed for what it is. rajendra82 (1078) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Pale straw yellow color, cloudy body, and active carbonation, which formed a three finger thick head crowning above the rim of the glass, gave this beer an appropriately rustic look. The smell was dominated by peaches with some hay like hops occasionally poking through. The taste had a rich peach flavor right up front, with a bit of powdered sugar mid palette, some white pepper and clove like spicy phenols following, and a tart acidity towards the finish. The body was airy, light, and quenching. There was a Sichuan pepper-like tongue numbing activity in the aftertaste. Unlike a lot of the American interpretations of Saison, this one was actually dry, spicy, and refreshing.SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2014

The beer came out naturally cloudy (some would even call it murky), pale, and developed a decent sized head. The smell was a invigorating combination of tart, sweet, and floral aromas, and deeper breaths revealed a significant hop presence. The taste was a tart and hoppy combination not usually seen anywhere. There was not much sweetness, and late in each sip some clove like spiciness and lemony sourness started to creep in. The mouthfeel was bone dry, and refreshingly light.
I’ve seen many American interpretations of Saisons use exotic ingredients like lavender and end up being too sweet and flowery. This beer on the other hand was all grain based, which made it feel rustic and authentic. I could certainly imagine this being made in a farmhouse. I wish that Terrapin would keep this into their regular lineup and get rid of one of the weaker entries in their lineup. This is just perfect for the hot local summers.
Pours orange with a small white head. Smells of peaches and minor funk. Taste light peach and very mild funk. Light-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Maggie’s Peach Farmhouse Ale finishes with a subtle fruit tartness.

Peaches and wheat right out of the glass with subtle notes of citrus and spice. Cloudy yellow golden with a dense off white foam. Sweet yet tart in the finish with a distinctive fresh peaches flavor. Medium to medium light bodied with a crisp tart finish yielding a very refreshing beer. Really one of my favorite fruit beers in a while. Great with homemade vanilla ice cream. onceblind (9428) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Clear golden with a foamy spotty white head. Beautiful semisweet nose of peach purée and zesty saison farmhouse grains and peppery esters. Smooth crisp flavor that’s bright with a pop of apricot and peach purée, lots of saison-like esters with grainy hay and Belgian blonde tones, and a slightly sweet fruity but estery peppery finish. Delightful, slightly clove-y and without being cloying.

Slightly cloudy pour with a lasting white head. Nice spicy, peppery aroma with banana and yeast. Flavor is more of the same, with a nice medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Fruity finish. Pretty good saison. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 25, 2009

Vibrant, yet somehow dusky, yellow-green pour with a minimal ring of light foam. Aroma is quite yeasty; accompanied by preserved lemons, floral honey, and a warm pollen-like funk. Flavor is bright with sweet orange blossom, hints of juicy peach, and full of hefe-like yeasty goodness. The thin and slick mouthfeel, combined with the delicate floral finish, make this highly drinkable.
Fairly ’straightforward’ in style, but I am truly enjoying the subtle nuances that are peeking out from behind that ’simple’ mask. This turtle rocks! I volunteer to work on Maggie’s farm next season. Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Originally reviewed: 3/29/10. Poured this into a tulip glass. Pours a cloudy darker gold, with a thin white head on top. Retention was pretty weak, but there were lots of spotty globs of lace left over after each sip. Scents of yeast, pineapple, grains, sour apples, and a bit of honey. The body was crisp, bordering on effervescent. Smooth going down though. This was one of the more bready Saisons I’ve had. Pretty filling beer. The tart yeast comes out in the flavor, but it’s rather subtle. Mild fruitiness on the backend, but again, lots of bread here. I like it. I could handle this bomber no problem. Great refreshing beer. Even though this is a one-off, my local store has a bunch of these left. I may have to grab a few more for the summer. Recommend.
