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.

Absoultely loved this from cask at the Draught House in Austin. Presentation is like an English real ale, with the same free-drinking body. But the sour twists and the beautifully accenting hops make this rare and wonderful - - an exciting play on a variety of understated themes - - sort of a farmhouse ESB saison barleywine. I would give anything to have this stuff in the fridge, or otherwise handy, but I don’t think they bottle it, and I live in Wisconsin.

vyvvy (4557) - 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.

JStax (3532) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2015
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.

kevinator (1228) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2015
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.

harrymel (1549) - Spokane, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Batch 5 Sept 5, 2013 Pours amber hazed with an etched top. Smells spicy, touch of licorice, some sage - dig it. Flavor is tits: spicy once again, some aspirin, some grain, some apricot, a bit of tartness. Again, nice. Mouth is medium on thin with some limited carb (partly due to my constant stirring and sniffing). I like this beer. It reminds me of some of the Upright beers, I know I like it, but I can’t tell you exactly what makes me love it.

Kirunavinter (12) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2015
Hazy amber/golden color with white head. Aroma of vinegar, funk, yeast. Taste is quite bitter, with notes of vinegar, yeast and funky characteristics. Light to medium body with good carb.

Beermack (716) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 25, 2015
2011 bottle shared. Reddish orange pour, not much head, v light carb. Nose is sour and dirty - big barnyard, big woody notes, sour citrus and earth. Taste gives big woody earthy funk, some red berries, citrus, big Bretty tang. Rough sour finish, lingering wood, spruce and Brett. A big sour punch to the face, remember enjoying younger bottles more, but still very good.

Bov (10215) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 19, 2015
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark orange beer with a long lasting foam; funky and decently woody, notes of oranges, cheese and grapefruits; full-bodied, juicy and sourish palate, quite dry and long fruity aftertaste of orange peels, almonds, wood and marzipan with a lingering sourness
