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.

Huge head, slightly sour aroma. Thin texture with crisp bubbles. Not quite sure what this beer is supposed to be - I'd like to try on tap, as this was a bottle poured into a solo cup... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown maybe some red in there. Tastes of red wine, cherry, dark fruit, very earthy hops, a little spice, darker malts and a little bread crust. Variety of hop flavors, citrus, earth, pine. Medium body. Very refreshing brew and very aromatic.

Aroma of bourbon and alcohol, pours a dark brown with a short tan head. Phenolic slightly sour taste of spoiled fruit. Medium body with a sour finish.

Poured from a bottle. Part of a blind taste test.   Medium Brown color.  Sweet aroma.  Almost tangy. Kind of fruity.

Sierra Nevada-Boulevard Terra Incognita 3 has a thin, beige head, a turbid, dark brown (think of prune juice) appearance, and little-to-no lacing left behind. The aroma is strong and bold- white wine, vanilla, sugar, brown bread, dark fruits, brown bread, and coconut. Taste is of all those elements, with shades of coffee, baker’s chocolate, bread crust, and shaved coconut. Bitterness is fairly low. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Sierra Nevada-Boulevard Terra Incognita 3 finishes on the dry side and surprisingly drinkable. RJT

Bomber at a tailgate thanks to RespertFTW. Large head. Color of the blue solo cup. Tart root beer.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy, Grippitis, JJ. Muddy brown with a lively beige head. Heavy lactic-sourness aroma, a bit musty, underlying tart fruits. Flavours of raisins, cherries, yohurty sourness, seedy bitter finish. Yum!

Pours brown with not much of a nose. Nutty taste - reminds me of a brown ale - with a slightly more complex finish of slight bourbon. Given how much I like Sierra Nevada, this one is a little disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

baraciisch (2016) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Dark brown to black with light tan head... Aroma of earth, light funk, nuts, light tartness... Flavor is earthy and grainy, light tartness and spiciness, bready and earthy finish... Interesting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (948) - Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle from Douglas. Thanks! A: Dark mahogany color with a creme colored head. Lacing. N: Grape, cocoa, tobacco, leather, grapefruit, acetone, toffee, and diacetyl. T: Semi-tart, weird bittersweet mixture. M: Creamy carbonation, medium mouthfeel. O: Strange duck. This isn’t interesting, unless you feel like you should be picking out brewing flaws, and given the pedigree, it’s quite frankly disappointing.
