Boulevard Love Child #9
The ninth bottling in our Love Child series of blended sour ales is composed primarily of a blend of Belgian-style Golden Ale, Flanders-style Red Ale and a touch of fruited sour ales aged in previously used wine barrels. Following primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks with our house Belgian yeast strain, the component batches of beer were aged in a variety of previously used barrels with lactobacillus and brettanomyces. Following aging, samples were pulled from like lots and blended during a tasting session attended by brewers and members of our quality assurance team. With each release of a Love Child blend, it’s not our intention to reproduce the character of the previous year’s blend, but rather to offer a blend of the very best sour beers we have on hand.
