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.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2013
Perhaps the closest to a perfectly satisfying beer I have tasted since I started taking notes on tasting. Pours a gorgeous copper color. Aromas are balanced funk, sweet citrus with sour peach and soft vanilla-ish barrel flavors. The taste is as close to the beer of the gods as we will see on earth. Funk with citrus that fades to peach as it warms followed by just a hint of barrel and some vanilla creaminess. The mouthfeel is equally as immaculate with just the perfect amount of carbonation that lightens the body of this beer nicely. Overall I can’t give a beer a perfect score until I’ve tasted them all at least once. This however was pretty darn close!

Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is peppercorn, huge oak, straw, lactic. Mouthfeel is good with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a tart following and wood tannin finish. Overall this is an interesting brew but VERY heavily oaked.

(bottle) murky golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of coconut, lemon meringue pie and vanilla, with lots of lime zest and some yeast. flavour is quite tart, with lots more lemons, some walnuts, nettles and a hint of alcohol in the finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma of tart and oak notes with some light funky ester is quite nice. Taste is also dominated by tart and oak notes with some funky ester with low level of acidity. Hops presence had pretty much disappeared which is no surprised considering the age of the bottle. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Quite complex beer that retained some good drinkability.

dmac (4212) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle at Paul’s. Poured an orange bidy with a smaller fizzy white head. Aroma was bad, notes of urinal puck, funk, earthiness, acorns, lemons and band aids. Slightly thinner body with a harsh acidic burn despite creamy carbonation. Flavor is better than the aroma, notes of lemons, earth, toast, slight vinegar and funk. Meh
