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.

Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy amber orange color with a thin off white head. Aroma is slightly dry, oak, tartness, mild vanilla. Flavor is moderately tart, slight vanilla sweetness. Light to medium in body with a long lingering tartness. Fantastic beer. Combines two of my favorite things. Sours and Bourbon barrels.

Nocturne (888) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Sample at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Hazy orange shade with a golden cap. Smells wild, berries, jam. Lots going on in the taste. Leathery brett notes come forth first, then there’s a touch of citric sharpness. Very nice. Always impressed with Jester King offerings.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2014
750ml bottle. Blend #6. 10.2%abv
Pours a murky light brown with a generous white head. Aromas of some light sour fruit, molasses, dirty funk. Taste is tart, slightly bitter and even though it says the FG is 1.003, it still seems semi-dry, leaving just a slight residual sweetness, although never cloying. Flavors of tart fruit, oak staves, sweaty brett and bacteria. Mouthfeel is quite full yet I don’t really detect any off-putting alcohol for a beer of this size. Quite chuggable. Finishes just off dry with a lasting sour bite. Very nice.
