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.

Pungent sour funky fruit, cherry. Some sweetness, Tannic fruit. Pillowy pinkish head on pour. Settles to ring on light murky brown. Taste is sour with spots of sweet. Just hints. Invigorating, wakes you up. Sour Tannic earthy funk wood. Acidity balanced is balanced withs dark fruit tart.

Rating #2500 and what a beer to have for it. Sampled at St. Louis Microfest 2011 & what welcome surprise to have for it. Pretty excited to see what Boulevard delivered for the first sour ale from them I know about. Pours very murky brown with absolutely not head at all. The aroma has a mix of sourness, bourbon, caramel malt, toffee, richness and a coffee-like presence - not what I expected, but it was interesting to say the least. The body was medium/light with a crispness to it and almost no carbonation to be found. The sourness that was blended with the aroma is front and center in the taste with prominent acidic and vinegar traits and a distinct lemon presence - it is a very sour beer. However, underneath the sourness is dark caramel, molasses, brown sugar, dates, raisins and toffee. The sourness masks some of that though. The finish is sour as well, but has a smoothness to it. Someone else trying it may have sum it up well saying it tasted like a mix of an old ale and a sour ale. Excellent beer to say the least & it showed no alcohol. Glad to try this one.

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.

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

Bottle corked and caged, poured a nice light amber color, with aromas of light cherries, light booze, some funk, and a touch of leather. Flavors of a tart cherry dusted with some coco with some light booze injected. Not overly sour, not overly boozy, the perfect blend in my book. Glad I got this bottle in a trade.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with paper thin off white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is cherry, funk, and wood. Thin mouthfeel with a strong tart and leathery malt with nice sour finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A very impressive sour ale from Boulevard.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Nose is big, full sour with an earthy funk and stone fruit. Just between red and brown with no head. Flavor is sharply acidic with a rich funk and loads of fruit. Cherry, strawberry, peach, pomegranate. Medium bodied and immensely easy to drink. So unbelievably good.
