Love Child Number Five is a Flanders style red ale, or rather, an “aged Belgian-style sour ale,” and a member of Boulevard Brewing Co. “Smokestack Series.” Boulevard Brewing imparted separate wood and stainless steel aging techniques to blend this sour beer. They were successful in giving this ale an intense sour profile that overshadows any other notes. Though after allowing time to breath and come to temperature, an underlying sweetness takes hold along with some fruitiness in the body. A mild yeast presence began to find its way out on the finish as well. Its mouth feel is light and bubbly like a nice champagne. Overall an exciting experience, one worth repeating, but perhaps not at $20.00 per 750ml bomber.
