Beer Brief #43 – Love Child No. 3

Brewery – Boulevard Brewing Company, Kansas City, Missouri

Beer – Love Child No. 3

Style – Bourbon barrel-aged wild ale

ABV – 9.5%

IBUs – 13

Color – Cloudy copper with a creamy off-white head

Aroma – Earthy, tobacco, woody spice, vanilla, a bit of cherry

Flavor – Caramel and vanilla briefly, cranberry tartness with earthy funk, dry finish with pithy citrus peel bitterness

Verdict – I really enjoy this brew. It has a perfect amount of tartness to go with the sweetish start and lovely funk, and maintains a nice balance that doesn’t become overpowering (at least not for me).
