3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy dark brown with huge off-white white head. Aroma is loads of fruity and complex brett. Round mouth feel with medium/high carbonation. Aftertaste is tart and fruity brett and some mellow whiskey from the cask. Overall: Very enjoyable. The brett works so well in this one. Very sessionable beer because of the medium mouth feel.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from the bottle. Aroma is typical of a sour, very bright and fruity. Flavour is much more earthy as they claim. More spices and the oak comes through with the bourbon. Not much sour flavour like you would expect due to the aging, but the bourbon is not over powering either. Very nice beer!

Tasting in Missouri Thanksgiving í13.
Pours cloudy brown with a 1 finger white head. Sour, woody aroma, very interesting. Very earthy, brett, some fruit. Finishes dry and lightly sour. This is a difficult one to describe, but I really dug it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle, best before 02-2015. Served in a tulip, the beer pours dark brown with a couple inch light tan head that sticks around for a very long time. Thereís also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like sweet and tart dark fruit, dark bread, oak, leather and some vanilla. It tastes like tart and sweet dark fruit (cherries, red grapes, plums, blackberries), oak/wood, brett, earth and a bit of vinegar. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it has high but soft carbonation so itís not hard to drink. I think Terra Incognita is a solid brew, and Iím glad I tried this. But at $21.99 a bottle, Iíll pass the next time I see it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown ruby-hued body with a huge rocky off-white head. Nose is "candy powder", mild horseblanket, citrus, hay and hints of stone fruits, grains and earthy leaves. Taste is stone fruits, raisins, hay, horseblanket, grains and hints of citrus, cinnamon and hints of wood, herbs and wet leaves. Medium body, high carbonation. Pretty nice bretty ale, although I long for a bit more sourness to compliment the earthy malt and hop tones.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown-amber body with an initially fluffy, light beige head.
Smell: Incognita has a bit of a Flanders vibe going on. Acetic and wild infused amber malts, chocolate, modest roast, toast. Barrel aging characteristics are present but not overbearing. Light, lightly spoiled fruitiness.
Taste: Starts sweet, but not overly so, with roast and cola, as well as light chocolate and caramel. Toast noted. A little herb hit of menthol. Acetic quality throughout, a skosh vinegary. Dark fruit notes. Good inclusion of well-integrated whiskey character. Dries out at a comfortable pace. Light fruitiness and a drip of rose water weaves in and out of the finish.
Mouthfeel: A notch beyond medium-bodied. Fluffy, full carbonation.
Overall: I quite enjoyed it.

Pours a dark brown with a very thick, foamy tan head. It has a rich aroma of funk, tart cherries, and some malt. It has a strong flavor of tart cherries, funk, and some malt and wheat leading to a slightly tart finish over a medium, foamy body.
