3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A selfish pour from 750 bottle into my trusty JK snifter. Primarily orange with gold edges. Topped by a few large bubbles, but no fine carbonation or head to speak of. A hearty swirl brings a few bubbles back to the top, but they fade quickly. Smells of sour funk, pineapple, whiskey, orange and vanilla. Taste is warm whiskey, hay, sour apple, earth, ripe red grape, barely sour pucker at the end. This would be an outstanding beer with reasonable carbonation (a sparkly finish). More time in the bottle would be quite advantageous, too.

Orange colored beer with hardly any head. Low carbonation. Fruity aroma, some tartness already noticeable. Flavor: tartness, fruits and caramel. Nice sourish bitter aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle poured a light amber color with aromas of tart fruit, light Cherie’s, wet wood, whiskey, Brett, light funk, and some vanilla. Flavors are a mixture of the aromas, blended nicely, light sour fruits, Brett, and some booze, light dry aftertaste, damn fine beer.

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!
