3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, shared by phaleslu. Hazy orange-red color. Some bits of yeast floating in the body. Minimal off-white head. No lace sticks. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Medium body. Lightly dry in the finish. Nice fruity raspberry aroma, some oak, wood. Tart taste, lightly spicy. Solid sour. Donít get much bourbon, though [for some reason I was under the impression that this was bourbon barrel-aged]

Bottle. Slightly hazy brown pour, slightly soapy white head and an aroma tart cherries and a bit of dry wood. Flavor is also woody cherries, hints of red wine, mellow tart raspberries and finishes with a nice bite and dry. A steal at $9/bottle.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL bottle. Pours a deep amber, hazy with medium white head that dissipated quickly. Nose is funk and cidery notes. Letís get this out of the way quickly: I didnít detect ANY bourbon barrel in this. Wild yeastiness: check Acidic sourness: check. Oaky dryness: check. I also got some tanins and a medium bitter finish. While I am a big fan of Boulevardís brews, to be fair, Iím honestly not a big sour fan, but Iíve had a few that I liked more than this one and in this instance, (and I understand the amount of labor and aging is built into it the cost) Iíd still say this one is wayyy overpriced for what the final product actually taste like.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by phaleslu). Looks good; a cloudy amberish orange with off-white lacing. Smells good too; like a sour brown with a nice barrel presence. Tastes like it smells with a nice, tart mouthfeel. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters with a hazed, orangy tint, with some bubbly, off white head foam that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and left some light, spotty lacing. The nose was light, yeasty funk, and a slight touch of horse blanket and leather. Sour, but not out of control, a little vinegar, esters, and vinous/grape notes. Dry finishing, but would have preferred more effervescence. A little unrefined, but decent.
