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.

bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2012
750 bottle thanks to Specs downtown Houston. Hazy, cloudy, dark amber with little head. Nice citric funky nose. Flavors overwhelming with the first taste, with lots of citrus, acidity, then toning down on the end with a faint sweetness. Can’t find the barrel or alcohol in this-hard to believe this rolls in close to 10%. It’s delicious and so easy to drink. Top quality stuff here-well done.

750ml bottle. Hazy amber brown brew with some off-white head. Nose is funky and tart - cherry, oak, tobacco, and vanilla. Flavors of bourbon, earth, dark fruit with a vinous feel.

JBPortland (1578) - 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!

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle pours deep ruby/orange with no head retention, well carbonated. Smell is very fruity, minimal oak presence. Cherry. Taste is very tart, pretty dry and coats the mouth. Puckering effect. Very nice.

4.2
coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bomber. Poured amber brown with a large light tan head and some dark floaters. Aroma and flavor were full of brett, a bit of funk, moderately sour, slightly sweet, lots of dark fruit (cherries in particular), some chocolate and toffee, leather. Some woodiness and a slight booziness. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Full mouthfeel. A real winner of a sour ale.

3.4
EricE (1372) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle courtesy of travlr. Hazy orange brown pour with a thin tan head. Light bourbon aroma with lots of tart oaky notes. Dry woody lemony tart flavor. Dry bitter and tannic. Slight popcorn note on the fnish.

SPDickerman (1315) - Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a beautiful red-orange with a fast fizzling light khaki head. Smells a little sour with a slight hint of vanilla sweetness. Taste is sour with some sweetness underneath. Medium-bodied with an astringent texture and prickly mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Love Child #2 finishes with a sour tingle.

3.6
brystmar (1314) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Thanks Matt! Hazy, ruby red color; minimal head/lace.

Oaky as hell. So much barrel; borders on too much barrel. Dark cherries. Fruity blend with oak, soured grain, yeast. I prefer #3, I still love this.

4.2
dwaggs2 (1298) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle. Some talk about the high price but its worth it. Poured a murky brown color with a smaller white head. Aroma was fruits, sour notes, very malty and funky. Flavor was very sour. I loved the fruits and spice that balanced with the funk and sour notes. Sour, sour finish. Amazing beer
