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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: murky, blood red with an orange hue. lots of carboantion, with light fizzy head that dissipates quickly as if it was a soda.

S:big wine notes right up front with big sourness and tart cherries and blackberries. ther eis some slight oak and woody characters with a subtle touch of alcohol, and nicely balanced.

T: blackberries, tart cherries, oak, slight Brett funk, decent amount of sourncess,touch of vinegar, slight hints of tannins. really enjoy the balance between the tartness, the slight funk and fruits here in this beer. and i feel that the gauges on the label are quite accurate

M: medium bodied, with moderate carbonation. leaves a nice tart fruitness on the palate that doesn't linger too long and excites the tastes buds with each sip.

O: really enjoying the balance of this brew, and as previously stated, I think that the label provides an accurate description of its components. definitely worth a try.
