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

Nice Belgian ale, this beer has a full body and a fairly clear appearance. The orange peel is evident in the flavor, along with muted coriander and a slight grassiness.

Somewhat random tasting note (tap at Proof): covers alcohol really well - spicy, peach, sugar, candied, orange, warm.

drowland (5992) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2012
5/24/12. On tap. Golden/orange pour with a small khaki head. Slightly odd fruity aroma with floral aspects, spices, and more fruit. Sweet fruity flavor with brown sugar and spice. Reminds a bit of apple cinnamon but with flowers. Interesting.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Deep golden pour, bright and oily looking, almost halfway to a mead in appearance. That’s certainly appropriate, given how sweet this beer turned out to me. Spices and sugars in the nose, but the flavors suggested a witbier with chocolate and brioche additions, or perhaps just liquid apple pie.

Mason jar at Tylers Apex. Sweet, yeasty, banana, clove, coriander. Clean golden orange color. Small head, no lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, sweet finish. Good, really like aroma. Sweet, spice is subtle. Easy to drink.

Bomber. Havy golden ale w/ sweet nose backed w/ heat. Taste is sweet, slightly citrus, & booze but lighter than I expected. Enjoyable but nothing special.

Braudog (5645) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Draft at the Birch! Very light amber/golden pour, with a thin topping of foam. The beer is packed with flavor, a tapestry of bright summer herbs, light citrus, a hint of yeast, and a tight little graininess one has to associate with the rye. Exceptionally easy to drink for a 10% beer. Excellent. (#4598, 5/16/2012)

kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Pours clear light amber with lacy head that dissipates quickly. Sweet citrus smell. Tastes sweetly of orange peel, coriander, and malt. Well balanced hop and malt flavors, but very citrusy and with slight alcohol taste. Somewhat heavy finish.

obguthr (3763) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Very weak malt nose. Cloudy amber, no head. Full body. Malt forward, cherry and apple hints, no hops. Not really mind blowing. Mainly dry and malty, light lemongrass.
