COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevards 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 dont we all? Oak barrels were used to age the majority of beer used for Love Child No. 3with 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.

Clownoisseur (453) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Pours a deep amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas of tart berry, barnyard funk, oak and a slight sweetness. Taste is very complex, with sour notes of tart berry upfront, coupled with an above average body of malts. Nice balance of flavor as the oak slips in, giving it some spice character. The bourbon is almost an after thought. The alcohol is so well-hidden this could sneak up in you at 9.5%. A dry finish allows some leather flavors to resonate along with a final touch a tart berry. Very crisp and well done.

Alphadelic (2232) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Grapey, sour and plenty of redcurrant. Smooth and incredibly fruity. The bourbon barrel is mellow and comes through in that slick and woody fashion. Oh damn. This is well put together. Light.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of tart notes with some hints of oak with some Brett notes. Taste is a complex mix of tart notes with some Brett notes comprised of barnyard and wet leather notes with some wood noticeable as well. Body is above average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very complex drink but also able to retain a good drinkability level.

high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy reddish amber with a tan head and lacing. The aroma is funky with dark fruits. The flavor is tart fruit up front with a slightly sweet (maybe from the bourbon) but mostly sour finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Inbreak (5639) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 19.01.2014, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is sour-ish fruity, masses of sour red berries (mostly red currants), mild vinegar, oak, berry skin, hints of paint and grass. Taste is sour-ish dry, lots of sour red berries, soda powder, berry skin, sorrel, raw rhubarb, mild vinegar, oak, grass. Medium bitterness, nice acidic mouthfeel. Very nice, but I cant really see where the bourbon aging kicks in...
