Terrapin Poivre Saison bottle

Over the winter, Beer Street Journal got the unique opportunity to judge Terrapin’s employee brew-off. Each team of employees created not only a recipe, but had to present a skit to the crowd selling the beer. The winner -Terrapin Poivre Potion Saison.

Like other employee brew-off winners, the Terrapin Poivre Potion Saison features pink peppercorns that spices up this saison.

Traditional beers with a twist on their style has been a Terrapin ritual since the beginning. In keep up with traditional, our 2015 employee beer Terrapin Poivre Potion dry hopped imperial pink peppercorn saison, fits the bill. Brewed with pink peppercorns for a complex spice, and dry hopped for some extra aroma , this multifaceted beer will keep you guessing on which flavor comes next.

Terrapin Poivre Potion Saison is available in 22 ounce bottles, a part of the brewery’s Side Project Series.

Beer Street Journal tasting notes: Side Project #25 upscaled nicely from the employee test batch we chose in the competition earlier this year. The saison is very bright, with a strong peppercorn notes. As the dry-hopping name suggests, this saison has a strong hop flavor. A fun one-off lineup addition, for the fans of the Side Project Series releases.
