Notes/Commercial Description:
Oak barrels were used to age the majority of beer used for Love Child No. 3—with 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.

4.33/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Batch Number: LC13060-2
Best by Date: 03-2015

A= Pours a deep dark amber color that is very hazy with an active head that rises to two fingers and falls slowly for how fast the bubbles pop into a thin layer on top of the glass with some spotty lacing.

S= Big vinegar sour is the first thing I notice. Tons of it. Then I notice the bourbon understones coming through. There is a bit of a sour cherry smell to it that plays out as well as some basic woodiness.

T= The taste is up front very sour. Suprisingly sour actually after reading some of these reviews it made me think this was gonna be mild. This hits me right in the mouth with a lactic sourness. Less Vinegar than I was expecting as well. The bourbon barrel comes in but it's a little late to the party and I only notice after my mouth grows accustomed to the sour assault. The sour cherry flavor that I got in the nose plays a big role in the flavor as well. A moderate amount of funk comes through but it's a little subtle.

M= The mouth is nice and active.

O= This beer is great. I think it's my first sour from Boulevard and they did it right that's for sure. With the sours disappearing out of MN it's nice to see a brewery bringing a quality sour into the state. Loving this beer so much I might go buy the rest of the shelf at the store. It's hard out here for a gangsta
