Terra Incognita by Boulevard Brewing Co.
American Wild Ale
8.50 % ABV

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.

(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a thick, 3/4 of a glass, head of dense foam that settles down to a dark brown body and there is still thick lacing with each sip.

S- The earthy tart wet wood that takes on a pencil shavings note before becoming more dry old oak as it opens. There is a nice hint of Flanders Red yeast esters with cherry hints and basement hues.

T- The nice dark fruit tartness leads to a bit more funk character and some old barrel notes to follow. The white cheese rind brett taste and some earthy darker malt notes blend with wet oak in the finish.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a full roundness from the gentle fizz and no real alcohol heat or astringency noticed.

O- This beer has a great wild funk character blended with barrel notes and some good yeast esters and malt flavor for support. This is very drinkable.
