The look, feel, and smell of this beer is great, but I agree with the previous poster--the taste is just too vinegary for my buds. I love funky and sour beers, but this one's literal sourness tips the scale a few scant points past easy drinkability.

This one felt a little too one dimensional and not as complex in aroma and taste as some other Love child’s I’ve had. A little too “vinegary”.

On tap at Das Biergarten. Grapefruit colored, almost pink. No head. Smells acidic and oaky. Cherry and oak. Some lighter fruitiness, like stone fruit maybe. Tastes intensely sour right up front. Much more stone fruit. Oak throughout. Raspberry more than cherry here. Oaky finish. Puckering sourness. Almost hard to drink. Medium body. Sourness is the primary flavor, which isn't enough for me to be that impressed.

Served from bottle into glass at home. Bottle best by date February 15, 2019. Pours light orange in color, with short lived white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, oak and and hint of acid. As it warms up yeasty fruit and spice aromas appear. No discernible hop aroma. Flavor is even more funky; wet horse blanket and a stronger sour character than the aroma implies. Some subtle candied orange and spice flavor, reminiscent of Belgian yeast is detectable. No discernible hop flavor. Mouthfeel is medium full; sticky, almost sugary. No detectable alcohol. Overall this beer is as complex as a mixture of multiple vintages of Flanders-style sour red and a sour Belgian golden ale could be. The farm funk and tart sour character of a Flanders dominate, but is balanced by the fruity spicy flavor and full body of a Belgian.
