Terrapin Beer Co.'s Moonray to Soon See Light of Day

Terrapin Beer Co. is set to release Moonray, the next beer in their Side Project series. 

 Moonray is a chocolate orange Weizenbock; the beer's flavors were inspired by the chocolate oranges found in many a Christmas stocking of yore. As a dark wheat beer, calling the brew Moonray also serves to give a little hat tip to Sunray Wheat, a summer seasonal retired in 2011.

From the label:

Sometimes things get a little weird when there's a full moon. Floating into Side Project spot 22 is Moonray Chocolate Orange Weizenbock. Our rendition of this traditional style is clearly a hoax with the addition of cocoa nibs and orange peel for a greater depth of flavor. With its big malt presence and hint of banana from the yeast, this beer may just make you howl at the moon.

ABV: 8.3%

IBU: 20

OC: 19.5

Malts: Malted Wheat, Munich, Dark Munich, Vienna, Chocolate

Hops: Sterling

Other: Cocoa Nibs, Orange Peel

Moonray will be available in 22 oz. bottles and 1/6 BBL kegs throughout Terrapin's distribution network beginning in early May.
