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!

Opaque, hazy, orange pour. Head was easily 2 fingers. Lacing was minimal and sporadic. Looked good in the JK snifter for sure!

Aroma is spice, spiciness, yeasty, mildly tart and fruity with a fair amount of hops.

Taste was lightly tart, hoppy, earthy, spice, sweet malts and a bitter-tart finish.

Light to medium in body, crisp, slightly creamy texture.

Drinkability is fairly good. Not being a particular fan of sours, the tart qualities are mild and tolerable for me!

Blend #5 Sept 5, 2013 at 45 degrees into flute
Initial aroma of oak and vinegar
Head average (3 cm), off white, creamy with rocks, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm ring and 1 mm layer
Lacing fair, mostly occurring on the side of the glass drank from.
Body medium amber, cloudy
Flavor begins with oak and sourness; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl. Ends slightly sweet. After several minutes an alcohol burn begins in the stomach.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

A very oaky wild ale, heavy on the vanillin. IMHO, not up to the usual quality of JK.

Bottle purchased from WLV Liquors.

A - Pours burnt orange, small white head, thin collar.

S - Spices, bread, yeast, light citrus, honey sweetness.

T - Fruity tartness, yeast funk, citrus, grapes, and oak. The alcohol is hidden wonderfully for 9%. The finish is tart grapes/oak. The taste was much more sour then the nose suggests.

M - Light body, good carbonation, dry finish.

O - Easy drinking for 9%, nice amount of sour notes, and a nice dry finish. Enjoyed this one for sure, and would buy another bottle if I have the chance.
