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 for and released exclusively at SAVOR Fest 2012. Re-released to the general public on 6-18-13.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a cloudy, deep brown to black colour with a huge, beige and creamy head. Aroma of oak, dried fruit, berries, forest floor, barnyard and some hops. The flavour is similar with more oak, dried fruit and some alcohol and hops. A little dry in the end. Silky and slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A sour ale with an American hoppy touch in the background.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014
Big 750ml bottle topped by a cork and a wire, from Vinmonopolet Langnes. Rocky beige head, decent off-white head. Mixed smell of tart fruits and sweet malts, vinous. Flavour of grainy malts, plums and hints of dark chocolate added by a little dry tartness to the finish. Hidden alcohol. Medium bodied and foamy in the mouth. Satisfying, not great though (shared at a rating session, Tårnrommet, Tromsø 15.05.2014).
