Reddish-brown with a white head. The aroma has some light funk to it as well as some cherries and oak. The flavor is a bit different. I get some brown sugar notes up front, as well as some maple and light funk. There is also some Belgian yeast notes as well as some biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really digging this Love Child series. Just wish I could get a bit more of them. This one pours hazy copper with a beige head. The aroma has some toasty malt, lots of bugginess, vanilla, light bourbon, dark berries and dry red wine. It has a medium husky body with lush carbonation that is fairly soft. The flavor begins with logs of funky bugginess & is fairly tart and sour. There is also a fruitiness that seems like blackberries and raspberries and it has a unique spiciness to it. the finish is sour & funky and shows just a bit of the barrels. Another excellent beer from Boulevard.

Bottle @ Avery SourFest 2013. Pours a dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Whiskey, caramel, dark fruity, spicy aroma. Tangy red fruity, spicy whiskey, a touch boozy, toffee flavor thatís fairly tart and somewhat acetic. This was ok but honestly, I havenít been a big fan of the whole series.

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]
