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

NachlamSie (3244) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bomber from Bruisin’. Pours a fizzy light gold with a bubbly head. Here we go with the ridiculously perfumy and spiced aroma. It’s a load of flowers, candy, clove, perfume. No subtlety whatsoever. I can handle overbearing hops, roasted malts, sourness, but the whole spice and fruit thing I can only take in reasonable amounts. The first sip of this is out of hand. It’s like drinking pure flowers and clove. It’s an overbearing yeast bomb with tons of chamomile punching me in the face. Terrapin excels at American styles. I really enjoy those.

Cybercat (5046) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Strong, malty fruity aroma has a subtle undertone of yeast and a hint of - is that coriander? Yes, coriander! It pours a beautiful clear solar yellow with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent white head. Flavor bursts with malt, orange, apple and butterscotch with a bit of a hoppy undertone and hints of yeast and coriander. Smooth, firm texture has a decent amount of fizz and leaves a nice fruity finish that has hints of coriander and hops. Special indeed! BTW I’m drinking this while watching the transit of Venus on-line, for what that’s worth.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of chamomile, coriander, and Belgian yeast. Poured yellow in color with a small, creamy, dense, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of light Belgian yeast, slight malt, chamomile, grain, barley, a hint of alcohol, a hint of hops, and a hint of fruit. Medium body. Slightly sticky, slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, Belgian yeast, spice, coriander, chamomile, grain, banana, slight hop finish is dry. 10%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Hangover (1115) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Cloudy orange pour with nice carbonation streamers and a thin white head. Aroma is musty with some coriander and orange. Nice mouthfeel with a peppery, spicy citrus flavor up front. Middle is a bit more yeasty with a bitter, almost tangy back end. Has enough body to support the alcohol and seems best suited to a long session of slow sipping. This is a pretty good brew!!

This is a Delicious beer. It looks great, it smells great, and it tastes great. I enjoyed the flavor a lot. You can pick up a vanilla and banana flavor to it. If you get a chance give this one a try.
