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.

750ml blend #4 6/2013 Pours a muddy amber/brown with a decent eggshell head - ugly beer. Aroma is heavy on brett with fruit/cherries, oak, and booze. Taste is quite nice - tart fruit/moderate acidity, funk, oak, and subtle whiskey/booze..gets much better with warmth and air. Medium body, dry brett finish. I would suggest giving this a bit of air before consuming as the last glass was by far the best, the alcohol and acidity mellows- split with the wife so not the booze talking.

ben4321 (3563) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from Hay Merchant, 12/10/13

Aroma: The nose is funky goodness, earth, citric and a little fruity, oak/wood, and brett
Appearance: Opens up as a big gusher, fizzy beige head on a cloudy amber-orange body
Flavor: The taste is funky and a little tart, with fruity, citric, and brett flavors, the barrel flavor is noticeable but overpowering, and there’s a lighter bitterness that is earthy and fruity as well
Palate: The body is on the smooth side, with a tangy/sour feel, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: Heck of a wild. I really enjoyed this one. The mix here is excellent: tart, funky, fruity, and a little bitter. This one is a really well-made and enjoyable beer. I’m quite glad I got to try this. I’d probably call this World Class.

bytemesis (2581) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours quite hazy copper amber, small bubbly white head, some lacing. Aroma is oak, tannins, yeast, caramel. Flavor is light tart, fairly astringent, some sweetness but a dry finish, sharp and biting, acidic. Earthy and a bit odd. Spiciness from the yeast. ABV well hidden. Medium body. Unusual for sure.

Bottle shared at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Cloudy golden. Funky aroma with yeast, flowers, some fruitiness, oak and some citric and floral hops. Sourish and funky flavor with oak, yeast, lemon, a vinous hing, a sweetish hint and a bitter finish, hoppy, floral and citric, with a hint of alcohol. Very nice.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
750mL bottle, pours an opaque orange amber with a small bubbly white head. Nose brings out whiskey and red wine notes, a little brett, and dry fruity notes. Flavour brings out loads of brett above anything, followed by subtler notes of whiskey. Not really getting any red wine barrels. Tremendous depth to this. Definitely a brett bomb. Excellent.

Hazy light amber color with compact head. The aroma has a nice orange peel touch, bitter oranges, fruity, a bit funky, woody. Smooth, highly carbonated, with dry malt flavor, orange peel, mild funkiness, a bit fruity and astringent.
Just great.
