Big thanks to FTowne for this bottle...
A: Pours a deep red/brown with a big medium khaki colored head. The foam fades in a moderate amount of time, leaving a thin layer of foam across the top of the beer. There is minimal lacing as it drinks.
S: The nose is pretty much what I expected, based off of Love Child #2. It's tart with big cider vinegar notes, cherries, and mild blackberries. It stings the nostrils a bit.
T: The beer starts off biting with a big sour vinegar note. It hits hard, but backs off as some fruit begins to shine through. As the beer moves back to the finish, it's tightens up again, making it slightly yeasty and puckering.
M: Medium bodied beer. It's tight, puckering, effervescent, and dry in the finish.
O: Decent American Wild Ale, but the balance is just off. As in Love Child #2, this beer falls shy of the mark, but it's still drinkable. I just wish Boulevard would add more fruit, let the beer sit in some oak barrels for longer, and smooth this creation out. It's just too harsh overall.
