COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Situated at opposite ends of the California Trail, pioneering breweries Sierra Nevada and Boulevard have embarked upon a journey into the unknown, to a land where adventures in brewing and flavor await. Terra Incognita is, fittingly, an earthy beer, celebrating the unique terroir of the two locations. Beginning with Sierra Nevada’s estate-grown pale malt, and combined with amber malt, wheat, and malted wheat, it is then assertively hopped with Bravo and Styrian Goldings, dry-hopped with East Kent Goldings, and finally barrel aged with Brettanomyces in Missouri oak.
Originally brewed at Boulevard and released exclusively on draft at SAVOR Fest 2012. Batch 2 was brewed at Boulevard and re-released to the general public in bottles on 6-18-13.

I hung on to this bad boy way too long. The souring agent in this beer is very understated. Elegant, perhaps. The oak provides a toffee/vanilla accent that enriches the beer. Hops are strong but not overpowering. Grapefruit citrus, grass. A success.

v8powered (129) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Got in 11/2014. Aged at 55 degrees until 6/4/2015. Pours dark with light lacy head. Lighter carbonation. Nice light fruit with some biscuit flavor. Some raisin and wheat flavors. The hint of bourbon and wine barrel notes makes it a really nice finish. Wish I had more than one bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PartyFowle (586) - - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle. Highly carbonated, with two inches of sandy tan head. Deep chocolate brown hue. Smells like the inside of a stone church. Slightly musty, like granite. The flavor is similar -- minerally, with a slight funk. Maybe a little too subtle.

Dogbrick (9350) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2015
This beer pours a dark amber color with a medium thick light beige head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, vine fruits and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of mildly funky fruit, vinous oak, earthy malt and mild hops. The finish is dark fruits and oak with a funky yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
