COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ďIt is absolutly paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we donít know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth.Ē -Benjamin Peirce Thatís a little how we feel about the last 10 years and the phenominal growth weíve enjoyed here at Terrapin. Join us in celebrating ten years of Terrapin with an Ale brewed with a Belgian yeast strain, Coriander, two kinds of orange peel and Chamomile. We chose to express this beautiful beer with what has been described as a beautiful equationÖ sip the beer while you ponder the math and our beautiful universe full of so much possibility! ABV: 10% IBU: 30 OG: 21 FG: 3.1 HOPS: Nelson Sauvin MALT: Pilsner, Malted Rye, Malted Dextrose ADJUNCTS: Coriander, two kinds of orange peel, chamomile

22 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy golden color with a half finger thick off white head. Faint spotty lacing. Aroma is esters, spice, and yeast. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt, esters, and spices. The malt sweetness and spices linger in the finish. Medium to full body. The alcohol is noticeable, but doesnít come across as 10%. A nice beer, but Iím not sure I can drink the whole bottle myself. Thanks Jason.

Misty golden body and small off white head. Spices, orange, yoghurt, cake and delicate hops. Strong flavoured with lots of sweetness and a sharp alcohol finish. (On my Florida trip)

Strykzone (5038) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Mhazy golden with a white head. This is peppery, Belgian, citrus. This is a nice beer that could be a big wit.

maxwelldeux (3760) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Really didnít like this one. Lots of sweetness to this one thatís too pervasive throughout the entire drink. Not the worst thing Iíve had, but too spicy and sweet for me.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bomber from a trade but I forgot who sent it. Pours golden amber with a white head. Aromas of orange, candied sugar, sweet malts, and some spices. Flavor of orange, candied sugar, caramel malts, and some belgain spices. Solid.

HonusWagner (1525) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
I cannot give this a remotely good score in good conscience. I donít think that pilsner malts, nelson sauvin hops, and coriander blend together particularly well, since this beer tastes like some abortive hybrid of a belgian strong ale, an ipa, and a saison Iím tempted to believe this initial analysis. As Bells 10K proved, more is often less in beer world.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Great. The nose is bready with notes of citrus and clove. The beer is a deep golden with a nicely shaped white head. Sweet with notes of clove and alcohol. Strong and medium full in body with a smooth hot finish.

jbruner (2418) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Pours a slightly hazed golden orange from the bottle with dissipating, frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma of corn malts, light belgian yeast, and odd spice. Taste is more of the belgian yeast than smell, and an odd mouth from the spice. Weird.
