BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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.

Poetry in a bottle! An amazing craft that's like drinking a tart cherry pie with vanilla notes and the Brett shines through like a siren. The oakiness of the whiskey barrels mingle around with lemonade flavors. Very light carbonation and an acidic medium body. A sinful amber color that reflects nicely from the tulip glass. Truly an art!
