Update: 4/12 batch, enjoyed 9/13.
Fantastic!
Coloration remains constant with a slightly soapier bubble. The funk has taken on hints of wet hay and horse blanket, all in a good way, with a slight bit of stinky cheese in the back. It’s smoothly sippable and slightly tart, with a great carbonation that keeps it light. I will miss this beer!

Update: Boxer’s Revenge from 4/12, enjoyed 1/13.
This beer has held up exceptionally well, with a mild funk, light carbonation and pleasing tartness. Certainly one where time has been kind to it, and one which very well could continue to evolve.

This pours a light ruddy-golden amber with foam bubbles that quickly dissipate. A mild wild ale? Certainly it doesn’t have an overpowering aroma but rather it’s lightly funky, with some wet hay and funky cheese in the next room over coming across. Palatewise it’s pleasingly tart with a bit of sour bite and some more wet hay on the finish. Cuts through a spicy and heavy meal with the greatest of ease. Great finish. Still wonderful.

Previously, from Tap: This pours a ruddy ruby-amber color with thin lacing. It has an incredible aroma, amazingly tart and sour with an incredible flavor and a funky, dry finish. I get an assertive mouthpuckering tartness up front and a sharp intensity of tastes which cut like a samurai’s blade. No hint of it’s ABV even as it warms. Fantastic! Utterly delicious!
