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.

dmac (3983) - 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
