COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“It is absolutly paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don’t know what it means. But we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth.” -Benjamin Peirce That’s a little how we feel about the last 10 years and the phenominal growth we’ve 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 equation… 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

Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Pours a medium golden with a thin but pillowy whote head that leaves a thin coat of lacing. Aroma is enticing with some floral notes, some hints of orange, a touch of sweet spices. Flavor is rich with a sweet underpinning of orange, some nutty like sweetness, an odd hint of chocolate and vanilla and a buttery back end. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Happy 10 years Terrapin - well done!

unclemattie (4118) - Georgia, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Vintage 2012. 22oz bottle, gold foil wrapped. Pours clear, golden orange. White ring of head. Some floaties. Aroma of flowers, loads of coriander, orange zest, and some peppery spice. Tastes of sweet honey, spicy rye, clove, orange. Complex flavors, sweet and spicy. Minus the floaties it was very enjoyable. (3410).

Big strong belgian Ale flavor and aroma. Golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Nice fruit and spice flavors. This was a tasty beast.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Gold, thin white head. It’s almost clear and sparkling, as well. Smells lightly spicy, with some citrus notes, plus clove and floral notes. Taste is floral, spicy, with a fairly heavy palate. I get some licorace as it warms.

aracauna (3035) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Draft from Hop City’s growler station. You know how some beers just seem to catch the light and glow? This is one of those beers. Perfectly clear amber seems to be somehow brighter than the ambient light in the room. The aroma is perfume-rich with the spicing and yeast. Nothing really dominates or overpowers, but this is a bold beer. Nice balance continues into the flavor. This may be one of the best beers Terrapin has ever made and I usually like Terrapin beer.

Pours lightly hazy dark golden color with white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, cloves, and citrus. Doughy and fruity flavor with some lemon. Medium body with average carbonation.

Gachupines (850) - USA - JUN 30, 2012
Cloudy yellow with a thin white lacing of head. Aroma is yeast with slight notes of hay. Flavor is light and spicy with yeasty, bread-like undertones. Mildly sweet in the finish, but not too sticky. Pretty solid.

SpringsLicker (3115) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a fleeting white head. Fruity citrus and melon aroma. The flavor is somewhat complex. Sweet fruits and light candy. Lots of carbonation lead to a sprtizy mouth feel.

Bomber shared by Butters at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of sweet and toasted wheat malt, celery and other vegetal notes, spicy finish. The taste is sweet bready malts, citrus, spice, floral and vegetal notes, pepper. Medium bodied. Decent.
