Postmortem Brew Review
Cloudy honey golden color.
Sweet candy like smells with a fruity background.
Very little head; slightly off-white.

No lace on glass, but instead, it leaves syrupy traces.
Sweet honey that keeps coming and has a lingering fruit taste.

Slight amount of carbonation.
Viscous syrup
mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Part of the "Monster Beer Tour", Terrapin has a WheatWine ale brewed with honey from the Savannah Bee Company. That's right, a WheatWine, not a BarleyWine. Made from Tupelo & Sourwood honey and wheat, instead of barley, Gamma Ray is a 'Super Hero' of a beer.

Deliciously sweet (and boozy), it will make you feel as if you have super powers, too. But remember those powers do not include driving or flying or any other machinery operations....lest I, The Reaper, see you first!  Be careful with your superpowers. They should only be used for good and not evil! Muahahaaahaaaa!

Try some, or get some and put it away for a while. This will keep very well at 10.8% ABV. Terrapin suggests you do the same and then break it out a few years from now, in the hour of need, when a special celebration takes place. You will be hailed as a super hero, for sure!

As stated on the label, "...'CAUSE SOMETIMES YOU FEEL LIKE A SUPERHERO!"
