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.

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.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Josh! Clear ruby red pour with thin to no head, aroma has notes of vinegar, lemon, hints of caramel, toffee, touch of red ripe fruit with some cherry, touch of alcohol and vanilla notes as well, touch of honey. Taste is a nice mix of bourbon, vanilla, some vinegar and lemon notes, touch of bread, hints of caramel, slight red ripe fruits with a hint of bourbon, finishing fairly sweet, slightly sour and dry.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle:   Amber, a little fiery, moderate to large frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Tart nose, soft unripened fruity notes, fairly strong, funk, lacto, brett, all sorts of goodness.   A bit more muted on the tongue, tart, bretty, with unripened fruit nose.   The barrel aging is minor, albeit comes out a bit more as it warms.   Finish is dry, with unripened fruit, and brett.   Pretty simple, but clean, enjoyable... not sure if its worth the $20 price tag tho.

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.

Being the first sour ale I,ve had this was quite the experience. The initial aroma was very tart and wine like. After a few sips of this deep orange brew I was convinced that sour ales are a breed all their own in a good way. The finish to love child 2 was bitter yet dry, sour yet refreshing, and vinous in its feel. I liked it! Good job Boulevard... As usual!

Advocate_Ames (478) - 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.

nuplastikk (4918) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2013
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 hadn’t anticipated. Pretty solid sour. Sticky barrel tones under pleasant peachy sour. Cool beer, probably sweated harder not at a tasting I’m sure.
