Boulevard’s Love Child Series of “wild” ales are barrel-aged with such boisterous cultures as Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces. These wayward offspring can prove so complex that we employ gauges on the label to convey the intensity of three key personality traits, Funk, Sour, and Fruit, presenting a picture of the ale at the time it was released. It will change as it ages, but don’t we all? A blend of wood and stainless aged sour beer, Love Child No. 7 is composed of multiple vintages of a Flanders style sour red ale. This release features soft lactic acidity punctuated with very slight acetic notes and a tart, fruity flavor.
