COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard’s Love Child Series of "wild" ales are barrel-aged with such boisterous cultures as Lactobaccillus and Brettanomyces. These wayward offspring can prove so complex that we employ gauges on the label to convey the intensity of three key personality traits, Funk, Sour, and Fruit, presenting a picture of the ale at the time it was released. It will change as it ages, but don’t we all? Oak barrels were used to age the majority of beer used for Love Child No. 3—with beer aged from 16 months to nearly six years. Another portion of the beer spent 11 months in stainless tanks, souring on Lactobacillus. While very tart, the sourness is short-lived and the beer finishes dry with a trace of oak.

Ungstrup (29222) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2014
Bottled. A hazy reddish beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes over ripe fruits, brettanomyces, malt, wood, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, brettanomyces, wood, berries, and a bit of bourbon, leading to a tart finish.

ej (695) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2014
Pours a little dark for a sour, deep golden , almost amber with a fluffy and somewhat lasting offwhite head. Fantastic aroma of citrusy acidity, oak and hay. Tart flavor, again with citrus-acidity and oaky notes. Finishes dry and leaves my mouth watery, like when you’re excpecting to chew into something sour. Drinks very easyily for being so strong, abv - wise..

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Deep copper, tanned head. Smells of funk, berries, dark malts and hints of caramel. Moderate sweet, quite tart, nice fruits and malts, some nice acids too. Moderate bitter. A very nice sipper, works very well with food

beer_est_deus (640) - örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2014
Oklar rosa-orange med ett stort kraftigt orange skum. Doft: Gräs, jord, växthus, fuktig och sunkig källare, plommon. Lite för svag doft tycker jag. Smak: Citron syra, syrlig och lite bränd plommonmarmelad, trä, mild brett, övermogna frukter. Smörig eftersmak. Lite som frukost, rostat bröd med mycket smör med min hemma gjorda rabarbermarmelad med lite mandel i och i glaset har man filmjölk.

Palme (3302) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2014
Sampled from a corked 0.75l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) Bottle Share. It’s really cloudy this, deep orange, almost murky in color with a low white top. The nose is a little bit fart-ish at first. I get some fruity sweetness, old hay and a gentle tartness all the way. I really really like in a strange way. Nice oily mouthfeel with a soft prickling carbonation level. The taste has some freshness, it’s a little herbal with lots of hay and a little yeast. Brett and tart fruits in the finish. Really superiously good! 15.06.2013

Total sour beauty. Funk upon funk. Floral, citrus flavor abounds especially after it warms.
