Corked bottle and served in Duvel snifter: Pours a reddish amber hue with a fading had and minimal lace. The nose has plenty of lactic sour’d notes along with some developing barnyard funk, over-ripened cherries and biscuit, milk chocolate and caramel malt notes. My biggest issue with this brew is the phenols and a noticeable rubbing alcohol character. Seems the fermentation temps were off on this one. I really wished this was less aggressive and not as boozy for it would have been a very nice Flemish Red... but alas., I am very disappointed.
750 ml. Tart, metallic. Cherries lemons and berries. Bit of oxidation. Thinking this one was past its prime. JBPortland (1557) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2015
750ml bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke for pulling this one out of the cellar stash! pours semi clear rusty brown red with medium head. Nose is musty earthy dark cherry fruit and old damp leather. Nice complexity of tart vinous berry and cherry, musty wood and grape, damp wood. Finishes fairly dry with some funky tart fruit, earthy barrel, forest wood and dark cherry wine spice. Acidity still nicely balanced. Nice stuff! jandd1983 (4550) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle, aged nicely. It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of cherry, funk, chocolate and wood. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tartness and malts with an awesome sour finish. Good stuff. Fsuveritas (15) - Clarkdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Aromas of vine and oak barrel. Complex taste, lacto front, funky tart fruit. ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a reddish color with no head. Notes of malt vinegar, burnt hair, leather, and funk. Very sour, long finish. Excellent.

Backlog. Small taste of a 750 ml bottle last Saturday night. Funky, sour and fruity with a light mustiness. Held up pretty well. j12601 (13032) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle shared by Dany for our rooftop brochette dinner. Pours an orange amber with a thin white head. Sour acid and wood on the nose. Medium bodied, acetic with warm alcohol coming through. Tart acid and wood. Tangy acetic finish. slowrunner77 (12591) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Ho-lee-crap. Did NOT expect this! A wonderful; marriage of tart funky fruit and bourbon. Carbonation high, but just right for the style. Dances on your tongue. Dark and light fruit, wine-like sourness, and some vanilla bourbon sweetness and a hint of pepper. What a delicious brew. Didn’t know Boulevard could do wild like this." merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2014

Pours copper brown with thin fizz. Picking up more of the lacto than brett on this one. Great sour cherry notes dominate. Not getting any perceptible bourbon. Puckeringly sour. Dryish finish.
