COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

SPDickerman (1066) - Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a beautiful red-orange with a fast fizzling light khaki head. Smells a little sour with a slight hint of vanilla sweetness. Taste is sour with some sweetness underneath. Medium-bodied with an astringent texture and prickly mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Love Child #2 finishes with a sour tingle.

Advocate_Ames (513) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2012
A nice blend in taste. Its not too sour and not too tart. There is a nice fruity flavor. The bourbon tends to keep everything in check. The scent is rather delightful that hints to a sour with yeast notes. Overall this is a great brew.

AdamChandler (3744) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Acquired in a trade. I really enjoy these Boulevard beers. Enjoyed at 60F in a tulip. Very still, no head. The cork barely made it out of the bottle.

A - Murky reddish brown. Still. No lacing at all.

S - Nice grape skin musk on the nose, cherries and lavender with some oaky tropical fruit scent.

T - Very tart and bitter up front. Bretty, dry and crisp in the middle. Last bit is a weird identify crisis and i get vanilla and charred smoke and bourbon.

M - No carbonation, light body. Very dry.

O - It’s a weird beer. I love the start and hate the finish.

22oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours amber with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of sweet tarts, caramel malts, and some light hops. A very sour beer. Smooth texture. A good sour ale, with a lot if sourness.

Bottle poured into glass. Good bit of sour funk in this one. Nice balance between the fruit characteristics and the tartness. Easily drinkable and the ABV is masked extremely well. Very good sour!
