Terrapin Maggie’s Blueberry Cobbler Imperial Farmhouse Ale

Posted: October 28, 2015 in Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale, Terrapin Beer Company

Now that we have three cats, it’s an interesting dynamic. The kittens are a bit of a handful and Angel is still getting used to them. They have a lot of energy and seem to get into everything. It’s definitely been fun so far. Anyways, let’s talk about this beer. It’s a limited release from Terrapin. It’s the first one from them that I’ve been able to try.

ABV: 8.55%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Maggie’s Blackberry Cobbler Imperial Farmhouse Ale is made with fresh blackberries and graham crackers for a taste you won’t soon forget. Reminiscent of the smell in Granny’s kitchen on a Sunday afternoon, this beer is liquid dessert for any home cooked meal.”

Random: Although I appreciate why breweries encase the tops of bottles in wax, but it’s still a pain in the butt to get off.

This beer poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. But, it left a slight crown on top of the body. The body itself was a hazy, dusky brown color with moderate carbonation. The nose had a lot of bread and light coriander. There wasn’t much fruit to speak of on the nose. The taste started with yeast and then transitioned into light berries that didn’t offer any sweetness. There was light coriander and white grape as well as apricot. The booze was well-hidden. It had a moderate body and had high carbonation. It had a medium-long finish with yeast. It was $11.99 for the bottle, which came to $.55 per ounce. This beer wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great either. I wished it had more fruit to it.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
