4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

Citrus & hoppy combines with sour notes. Hoppy bitterness lingers on the palate. Highly fascinating 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!

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.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hugely complex nose, mild grassy tropical fruit mixing with more dominant hay and spicy Brett and brown sugar. Some light vanilla, woody caramel. First pour is clear and golden, small but lasting white head. Flavours of mandarin/orange citrus blending into woody Brett notes. Fairly light body but a lasting tart and light acidic finish still gives a substantial mouthfeel. Fantastic beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes, 8/29/12:
Poured a 750ml bottle into a Jester King glass, careful not to disturb yeast sediment. Served at suggested serving temp around 50 degrees.
A: Yellowish orange, nearly clear. Carbonation bubbles visible, soapy lacing down the glass.
S: Sour, light funk, citrus, whiskey alcohol. Sour apple as it warms.
T: Sour up front, nice hop presence, citrus. Vinuous & whiskey in the finish.
M: A bit heavy, slightly lower than normal carbonation compared to other sours I’ve had. I like it that way for such a big brew.
O: Sampled Boxer’s at the brewery, was happy to pick up a bottle. I like the elevated hop presence compared to other sours I’ve had. Glad to have access to a quality local sour.
