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.

I am usually not much on wild/sour ales but I am glad I tried this one. Pours an orange color with a small head. The aroma is funky with some barnyard notes. The taste was medium sour, cherry, leather. Finishes clean.

Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy orange to copper with minimal white head. Aroma is pronounced tart sour. Taste, acetic sour with some raspberry and cherry notes. The fruit comes through but I can’t tell if they really used any. Seems to be the case. Very dry and some shoe leather notes. Overall, ok American sour that is somewhat all over the place.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Nose is big, full sour with an earthy funk and stone fruit. Just between red and brown with no head. Flavor is sharply acidic with a rich funk and loads of fruit. Cherry, strawberry, peach, pomegranate. Medium bodied and immensely easy to drink. So unbelievably good.

SPDickerman (975) - 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.

Concealer (808) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Boulevard said they named this "Love Child" because of all the time, love and care they put into this beer. It truly shows. This is one of the best sours I have had. If you can get a bottle, do so. Now.

750ml bottle. Pours an opaque dark copper with burnt orange hues. Aroma of wine, fruit, vanilla, whiskey, wood, leather. Flavor is lemon juice, cherry juice, olive, wine. It is definitely sour.

Pungent sour funky fruit, cherry. Some sweetness, Tannic fruit. Pillowy pinkish head on pour. Settles to ring on light murky brown. Taste is sour with spots of sweet. Just hints. Invigorating, wakes you up. Sour Tannic earthy funk wood. Acidity balanced is balanced withs dark fruit tart.

freeofthoughts (659) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2013
One year bottle pours burnt orange amber with a rim of khaki fizz. The aroma is funky and tart with some grainy sweetness. The flavor starts with a robust barrel note and warming grain but it quickly melds into a lemony tart sour with a very light Belgian must. It has a nice fitting sweetness that masks the intensity of the tartness and brings out some of the light fruitiness. It is low carbonation and finishes with a lingering tart citrus, light grapefruit and more so lemon, with smooth amber malts and a touch of barrel.

high_on_hops (632) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a nice clear amber with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is not too funky, and it also has some tropical fruit and a small amount of sweetness from the bourbon. The flavor has the sourness up front with a cider-like taste, but quickly moves to a sweeter flavor with some of the bourbon in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiercepanda (587) - Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2012
A cloudy brown beer with a quickly dissipating beige head. The aroma is wood, vanilla, cherry, and citrus. The flavor is wood and vanilla up front with a very nice tart cherry that intensifies in the finish. Quite sour but also quite delicious.
