COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boxer’s Revenge is inspired by the hearty “stock ales” or “provision ales” produced by some of iconic farmhouse breweries located along the Franco-Belgian border and named in honor of the stalwart workhorse in George Orwell’s Animal Farm. It combines delicate notes of tropical fruit, citrus and spice from the primary French farmhouse yeast with tart, rustic, earthy notes from the Brettanomyces. A final dry-hopping with fresh Cascade and Centennial hops adds yet another layer of depth and complexity.

Deep orange street-worker colour. Short head. Smells like spiced old barrel after the summer rain. Very carbonated. Doesn’t last long. Short, dry. Dry fruit aftertaste. Reminds me of macerated malvasia. Almort like barrel aged grapefriut. In short love-hate relationship.

Draft - Orange, spices, grains and funky yeast. Cloudy copper with a white head. Peach, straw, spice and orange with some barrel and yeast. Fruity, but not as tart as I expected.

On tap at brewer poured a milky deep orange hue w/ medium white head. Huge wine aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a big sour aroma. Tastes are Brett funk, sour milk, red wine, and ruby red grapefruit. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel and dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brett makes the most of this beer then comes centennal flavours. Nice combination of wilderness and dry hoping. A réal treet..

HOMG 2014. Tart aroma that tickels your nose. Lots of sour flavors come through. A little bit of light fruit but the yeast and sour is what you are after here. Cloudy reddish brown color. Surprised to see the alcohol count on this one because it is absolutely not there. A little one dimensional with the sourness and not much else to round it out.
