RATINGS: 16   MEAN: 3.29/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.14/5   SEASONAL: Autumn   EST. CALORIES: 165   ABV: 5.5%
A distinct 5.5% ABV session-lager brewed with elemental, native terroir from the following collective of brewers: Sierra Nevada (wild rice, beets, cucumber, mint and carrots), Avery (Colorado alfalfa honey), Allagash (Maine purple potatoes), Dogfish Head (free-range Atlantic Ocean “beach” wood), and Lost Abbey (cage-free Pacific Ocean “beach” wood). Born out of a backroom conversation in a Boulder restaurant and blooming into a full-blown cornucopia of a collaboration, Repoterroir is a coming together of like-minded craft beer compatriots. Brewed at Sierra Nevada’s brewery in Chico, CA this sessionable lager beer reclaims the earthbound mantle of terroir from the grape-soaked, buttoned-down world of wine and re-purposes it in a new sudsy sense. Featuring natural ingredients contributed by each of the five breweries, this unique and earthy beer is complex and layered but ultimately drinkable. Using the full repertoire of skills from more than 86 combined years of brewing knowledge and skill, this lager combines traditional (and not so traditional) ingredients into an ideal summertime brew.

At lost abbey. Pale gold pour. Aroma is cucumber salad which is insane. Taste is crisp and clean and heavily cucumber with slight vinegar to it. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Draft at Lost Abbey with Andrew, Brendan and the big boy daddy dad Bachelor, Dallas. Pours a light hazy lime body. Aroma is cucumber and lemongrass. Mouthfeel is thin and soft with notes of cucumber, pickles, grass, lemon and lime. Incredibly unique brew. Wow, nothing like it.

Tasted at Lost Abbey on tap. Clear golden in color with a thin white head. Stick your nose in this beer and you feel like you are at the beach on a windy day. Pronounced beach wood aromas flow. Smells more like Atlantic wood to me. Light bodied brew but flavors were quite complex that melded well together. Flavors were of honey, mint, earthiness, and grass. The finish is not sweet and some what dry. Very tasty unique beer.

Tap at CK. Sounds like a Sam Caligione beer. Pours low haze golden. A bit murky/dirty. Weak head formation. Nose is powerful spice medley with heavy potpourri, sea salt, lavender, rose pedals, flower pollen....even some dill and even dill pickle. Taste is powerful perfume, flower, pollen, lilac, lavender. Spicy rosemary and rose water. Big white pepper and sage. I like it, but I love these types of mega herb garden beers. Unique, dry, fun, enjoyable. But if you hate lavender perfume or dill pickle, stay away.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
On tap at Lost Abbey. Listed as simply Repoterroir Session Lager. Pours with a crystal clear yellow hued body with a lasting white head. Aromas are hoppy, floral, lightly spicy, starchy, crackery malt, clean yeast wise, and a bit of spicy wood/cedar like notes. Flavors are malty, bready, floral, light peppery (pepper corn) character, flowers, cantaloupe like fruit notes. Lively bubbles, dry, light chamomile tea herbal thing going on. Medium bodied. Tasty for such a strange group of ingredients.
