Boulevard Love Child #5 Hits Shelves

Victory Love Child #5

Boulevard’s Love Child Series features the most tart, sour, and funky flavors in the brewery’s arsenal. This year, we are lucky enough to get two of these coveted Love Child releases.

Boulevard Love Child #5 is a blend of whiskey and wine barrel aged ale, stainless steel fermented ale, fermented with Lactobacillus (sour bacteria) and Brettanomyces yeast. As #5 hits shelves, there is something important to note. By using spirits barrels, Boulevard’s idea is not to give Love Child a strong wine/bourbon character. As brewer Jeremy Danner tells Beer Street Journal, they use the barrels as a habitat for acid producing bacteria and wild yeast to funk up the beer.

It’s a little bit lower ABV than past releases and we also wanted to create a blend that focused a little more on soft lactic acidity versus sharper acetic notes. I’d place the sourness in between Love Child #3 and Love Child #4. – Jeremy Danner
