3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
