Sour characteristics come to the fore in this release, foreshadowed by the tart, winey aroma. Notes of cherry, chocolate, olive brine, and leather give way to a subtle hint of funk and a dry, clean finish.

Sample at Falling Rock Beer Tasting with Dr. Bill on 10/13/2012. This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of grapes and bready malt. Medium body with a vinous character and notes of crackery malt and touches of hops. The finish is fruity with an earthy malt aftertaste. Good overall.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Reddish color with an offwhite head. Aroma of cherries steeped in an old balsamic vinegar and some new leather shoes. Flavor is lightly sour, some of the leather comes through in the flavor and some cherries as well.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Hazy burnt-caramel ale with no head. The aroma offers caramel, toasted barley, an assortment of berries and lactic acid. Full-bodied with stinging carbonation. Super-tart, fruity, black cherry and sour cherry flavor. Finishes, tart, bready and lightly bitter. Bottle generously shared by biggsbowler! Rufus? Randall? He’s the man!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with paper thin off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is cherry, funk, and wood. Thin mouthfeel with a strong tart and leathery malt with nice sour finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A very impressive sour ale from Boulevard.

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Thanks Steven! Hazy dark orange appearance with a small off white head. Mild whiskey, spicy cinnamon, vanilla, oaky, red fruity, tart aroma. Tart cherry, tart berry, woody, leather/tannin, vanilla, quite sour, dull whiskey flavor. I’m quite surprised that I enjoyed it that much.

"Ho-lee-crap. Did NOT expect this! A wonderful; marriage of tart funky fruit and bourbon. Carbonation high, but just right for the style. Dances on your tongue. Dark and light fruit, wine-like sourness, and some vanilla bourbon sweetness and a hint of pepper. What a delicious brew. Didn’t know Boulevard could do wild like this."

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2013
750 shared at Capone’s with a generous benefactor. Pours turbid orangy dark strawish colored with off-white head. Nose is tart, lactic, fruity, funky. Tastes complex, fruity, with a lot of caramel flavor, lactic sourness, and a tart, crisp finish. This is a sour done right.

750mL thanks to Travlr! Pours a full haze, deeper orange tea. Weaker off white foam. Nose is sharp red wine, acetic, saltwater. Taste is tangy, orange, butter, tangy orange. Some sharper ruby red grapefruit juice and lime. Sharp, tangy, not too acetic. Salty all the way. Butter/diacetyl is a little distracting. As it warms, it cleans up. Salty, balsamic, red wine tannic and sharp. Bourbon barrel is a bit of a mismatch but the beer is very nice underneath. Very good.
