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.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 750ml bottle. Nice sour peach sour tones. Really pleasant sour barrel tones, leathery. Really has a steady sour edge which I hadnít anticipated. Pretty solid sour. Sticky barrel tones under pleasant peachy sour. Cool beer, probably sweated harder not at a tasting Iím sure.

750 thanks to Holly. Iím pretty sure I smelled this yearís ago on a tour. Cherry and vinegar. A nice brown tartness to this beer. Some red grapes. A bit of that so called leather in nose. Very nice.

Bottle. Slightly hazy orangish pour, with off white head. Grain, cherry, sourness, a bit of cheese, leather, and oak. Good.

Pours hazy ruby-tinged mahogany into a tulip. Off-white head bubbles and quickly recedes to hug rim leaving scant lacing. Sour pit fruit aromas. Sharp and tart with cherry upfront turning to earth and brine in the lasting finish.

Bottle. I hope it tastes better than the deScription: olives and leather?!?! Dirty red-copper with minimal head. Strong wine-vinegar aroma. Tastes like the deScription. Not sure that I have ever tasted pickles or olives in a beer. Cool malt undertones but sensing that the emperor is a little underdressed.

Location: 750 ml bottle at Flying Saucer-Little Rock, 6/20/12

Aroma: The nose has lots of sour/tart berries, with some brett/funk, yeast, and wood
Appearance: It pours a cloudy dark orange-amber color with minimal head, and no lacing
Flavor: Tastes much like youíd expect from the nose: sour and tart with the same notes coming though
Palate: The body of this one is fairly light, it is quite drinkable, and the alcohol is rather well-hidden
Overall Impression: I thought that this was a really good sour. Nicely made, and hits all the right marks for the style. Good job here by Boulevard. Iím glad I saw this one up on the New Arrivals - Bottles section, as it was pretty easy to miss and based on the limited number of reviews, I doubt it is something that would have stumbled over again anytime soon if I had missed it. I found this one to be quite good.

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, meh, just a glass of apple vinegar, no sweetness or anything, one dimensional and very acetic

Bottle corked and caged, poured a nice light amber color, with aromas of light cherries, light booze, some funk, and a touch of leather. Flavors of a tart cherry dusted with some coco with some light booze injected. Not overly sour, not overly boozy, the perfect blend in my book. Glad I got this bottle in a trade.
