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.

Jester King Boxer's Revenge A-Rather clear, bright orange. Slightly hazy. Fizzy one finger head. Head disappears quickly but still has some lacing throughout. S-Sweet and tart notes of peaches, green apple skin, bit of hay, lemons, green grapes, slight hint of oak & maybe whiskey. T- Quick grape and peach tartness blended with a hint of whiskey. Light kind of dry, funky, white wine flavor in the middle with some oak notes and finishes with a solid barnyard/straw flavor and more oak. M-Medium mouthfeel, moderate to light carbonation. Good warming alcohol at the back of the throat. Super easy drinking for 10%. Dry, but not overly so. Very smooth brew and very well blended. O- Again another great beer from Jester King. This is a must buy when you see it. I would have liked it to have a bit more depth to it, maybe a little more sweetness, but it was still excellent. -

750ml bottle brought by bananabi11. Shared by all. 2016 vintage. Excited to try my first Jester King! Hazy ipa pour. Big berry. Big sour. Funk. Definite wild yeast presence. Oak. Very sour. A touch of sweet tarts. So tangy tart and strongly wild. Medium bodied or a bit more. Some alcohol presence. The blend is good. Finishes strongly sour tart. 4 Wow! Strong. Certainly wild. Flavorful. 14.1

Pours a deep golden brown from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma of nice lactic acidity and earthy brett funk, a touch of citrus in the middle, and nice piney hop notes on the end. Taste follows, like the biggest and best sour/funky IPA you have ever had. The booze is well hidden, tasty for sure.

From notes. Enjoyed at a share up at Huffman Lake with some good dudes the weekend of September 30 through October 01. 750 mL bottle. Blend #8. The pour is a darker golden brown with a thick white head and a couple spots of lace as it falls off. The aroma is pretty sour right up front with a nice red wine aspect and a growing oak. There is a pretty heavy vinegar on the back end that I’m not too crazy about. The flavor is a little better. There is a nice cherry and funky citrus to it that transitions through a light vinegar, but lets the oak really shine. There is a little barnyard funkiness on the back end, but it’s doable. The mouth feel is medium bodied and brightly carbonated with a lingering sour and funky aftertaste. There is a late red wine vinegar that begins to creep in, but it’s not too bad. Pretty sour. 6 4 7 4 14

Sample at Aficionado’s during the "Big Bad Bottle Share" on 02/10/2017. Hazy bright orange color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Aroma of funky lemon, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of funky yeast, citrus, oak and malt. The finish is funky citrus and yeast. Pretty good overall.

Bottle at RBGT. Pours cloudy amber. Aroma is funky farmhouse, some fruit, little oak barrel. Body is medium, lightly sour with a good tartness and a late bitterness. Long and fruity, yet lightly boozy palate.

Bomber. Thanks, Mike. Sour fruity nose, tart peach, some tropical fruit notes, too. Medium yellow/amber color. Light sour fruit initial, smooth stone fruit in mid, moderate bittering. Thin body and quite astringent. Interesting, tart, and tasty.
