Terrapin Monk's Revenge
I picked up a four-pack of Terrapin Monk’s Revenge from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a vibrant orange-amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of Belgian yeast, lemon, pepper, and wheat. The taste is smooth and bubbly with lots of Belgian yeast. There is a nice lemon, banana and wheat accent with a peppery and spicy finish. The alcohol content is 9.6% ABV. The nice spiciness built on top of a sweetness of a Belgian yeast and banana. The balance is impeccable and very well done, and I can not wait to see how this beer ages.
