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.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is wild yeast with some funk. Appearance is a hazy gold. Taste is a funky, sour beer. Straight up. Palate is sour. Overall, a decent sour, but still not quite right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andyhwcinc (1657) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Enjoyed on tap at Jester King Brewery in Austin, TX. Appearance is a rich gold with a thin white rim. Aroma of light Brett, champagne like, smells light but nice. Taste I think is fantastic, expected this to me more sour than it is, I find it crazy that this is pushing 11% ABV because it doesn't taste like it. Good stuff.

vyvvy (4673) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pours reddish with a white head. The aroma has berries, vinegar, big maltiness for a sour ale, lemons and some cherries. It has a fairly full body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with thick chewy bready malt, cherries, vinegar, caramel and spices. The finish shows some oxidation and sourness. Tastes a bit like an American strong ale that has gone sour. Pretty good.

750 ml bottle from Errl from way back. Thanks dude! Pours a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. Good retention. The aroma has notes of grapefruit pith, pineapple, and must. The taste is a touch astringent, but the pineapple tanginess wins out. Nicely sour. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Stumbled across an old bottle of this and was glad I did. Nice strong earthy and wood aromas. Bold flavors of oak, must, sour grains and funk with a mix of fruit. Great balance with a smooth and dry finish. Complex.
