Terrapin Beer Company T-Time
What the brewers say
“T-Time Berliner weisse is a tart and thirst-quenching wheat beer made with fresh tea and lemon peel. This easy-to-drink summertime refresher will get you back into the swing of things both on and off the course.”
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Big lemon and citrus notes, some herbal tea notes, and a really nice wheat character. A nice blend of sweetness with some tartness and complexity.”
Flavor: “Really interesting flavor. After the aroma, one might expect this to be a citrus/lemon bomb, but it has some interesting herbal notes to balance the tartness of the lemon and tartness. It’s really dry in the finish, but you get this nice residual sweetness from the malt that allows the tartness and citrus to linger. It tastes like lemon herbal tea, and the flavors balanced well together. Not too sweet, not too tart.”
Overall: “Fun beer! The lemon notes are well done, and the underlying Berliner weisse comes through with some grainy notes and a tart Lacto that isn't overpowering. The lemon brightens the whole thing up. The aroma really delivers on the citrus whereas the flavor provides this nice herbal character that cuts through the tartness. It is delicate, light, and refreshing with some flavors that worked well together. Easy drinker for a hot day.”

Two pillars of brew- ing history come together to release a beer that represents the origin and the evolution of brewing. Braupakt is deliciously drinkable, showcasing both Weihenstephan’s brewing prowess through their signature yeast and Sierra Nevada’s proclivity for big hops flavor. The initial impression on the palate is of a bouquet of aromas, including subtle touches of banana plus refreshing grapefruit from the American Chinook hops.
A flavorful craft beer that’s uniquely easy to drink? It’s true. Introducing Firestone Lager. While Firestone Lager may not be your father’s lager, it is just as drinkable—which is ultimately the point. In the words of Brewmaster Matt Brynildson, “Firestone Lager is all about enjoying a good, clean beer.”
New Belgium The Hemperor HPA®
Our brewers are always on the lookout for different hops varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclu- sion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.
Tröegs Nimble Giant
We had no idea that a little experiment with Mosaic hops would set us on a year-long path to a new double IPA. But seven small-batch Scratch beers later, we found the Giant. Nimble Giant—brewed with Mosaic, Azacca, and Simcoe—gracefully boasts grapefruit rind, pineapple, and honeysuckle notes with a hint of earthy forest floor.
