First pour in a Love Child No. 2-4 vertical. Opened about 4 months past the stamped 03/2014 "enjoy by" date.
Flanders red in appearance.
Slight funkiness in the aroma with the bourbon barrel characteristics standing out more.
A crisp tartness upfront. Finish was mostly the bourbon barrels with little-no fruitiness and very little sour. The aftertaste was the same. The sour/funk characteristics were not as prominent as I thought it would be. Might have been due to age especially when compared to Love Child No. 3.
Still a great and enjoyable beer. Really liked being able to pick out the differences in all three of the vertical.

Aroma: tart cherries and strawberries. Clean funk.
Appearance: ruby cherry color. Beautiful. Head falls immediately.
Taste: starts medium tart with a bit of funk and finishes with prominent plum and cherry skin flavors. Hard to pick out malt flavors.
Mouthfeel: puckering and dry. No dms, very light diacetyl.
Overall: great beers that loses some of its ripe fruit characteristics with age but is almost more complex now.
