Terrapin Sunray Wheat
This wheat beer was fresh from the tap and was ultra fizzy. Golden and hazy, the unfiltered beer smelled immediately of banana and cloves - I have come to expect the presence of those two. It was slightly sweeter than most hef's I have tried, mainly due to the addition of Tupelo honey during the brewing process. The citrus notes were definitely there, mainly lemon zest, and the brew finish was crisp and a bit tart at the end.
I want to try and provide some subjectivity to the beers that are listed on these pages, so I may play around a little with different rating systems until I find something I am comfortable with....Feel free to throw in ideas or thoughts as I try to crudely rank these brews on some kind of cosmic scale. This one was a good beer, but it didn't impress me in any way and nothing about it was extreme or too different. Probably a 7 out of 10 based on the ability to drink mass quantities of this during the summer months...
