Pours cloudy orange with a super tiny white head. Smells tart, fruity, malty, and a hint of caramel. Taste is tart, fruity, and a tiny bit bitter. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Jester King Boxer’s Revenge Barrel-Aged Wild Ale finishes with a soft tartness.

750mL thanks to Jace! Flat pour, full haze dirty orange. No foam. Nose is mild vinegar, some intense meaty Asian melon like jackfruit, mangosteen, lychee. Nice. Taste is a bit harsher acid, some sugar cube, mango power, dried mango chips. Palate acidic, citric, mild acetic heat. But very good as expected from JK.

Appearance: Pours an amber orange with nary a head.
Aroma: Faint soured fruit, melon rind.
Taste: Modest tart fruit (granny smith, white grape) some funky brett like bug. Nice wood notes that linger.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, juicy, modest bubbles.
Overall: A very funky beer with gentle tartness. A very good showing from such a young barrel program.

Bottle courtesy of "AKfaust". Colour... cloudy gold with a thick white head. Nose...apples, pears and lemons with a hint of quince. Palate...quite the sprite! Loads of lemon curd, kumquat and a delightfully dry feel across the palate.

bottle @ birefts 2012. One of the big surprises for me. Super sour and tart aromas of granny smith apple, grassy notes and butter/battered milk and whey. Nice sourness and vinegar notes in the taste. Definite like!

750 ml bottle acquired in trade from thirdeye. Thanks, Chad. Pours a nice deeper hazed orange amber hue. Good big orange glow and darker middle, well hazed with a loose frothy offwhite head atop. Small loose layer laces small, broken film. Aromas are melon and some white grape, subtle wine quality. Mellow sourness, citrus and crab apple meet firmer funky brett, straw and horseblanket, cobwebs and firmer oak. Some yogurt, dry dusty brett. Winey oak is more white slanted, some tropical fruit, melon, and tangerine. A faint waft of whiskey. Not bad. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, with some red fruit tartness. Faint cranberry, red grape and mellow citrus. Melon, oak, and some lactic elements. Firmer brett, dryness, white grape and melon mix, some tannic wine elements, gentle whiskey. More white still. Middle is mellow, gentle carbonation, dry and mellow funky brett. Cobwebs, some basement, and gentle bready sweetness. Tartness and sour apple, citrus are pretty doable, a bit dry, bold as we hit the backend. Dry, fizzy, a bit of cheesiness. Firm tannic finish, wild elements, the whiskey comes in a bit more on the backend and finish, some sour fruit, berry, citrus, some apple. Firmer funk and barrel presence, sourness is there but falls back. Different than expected but pretty enjoyable. The barrel element was pretty enjoyable, tannic and winey. Further into the bottle the sour element picks up a bit more, melon and white grape. Nice. Pretty fun beer.
