BREWERY DESCRIPTION:

The 7th bottling in our Love Child series of blended sour ales returns to the Flanders-style red base beer that has composed most of our releases with the notable exception of Love Child No. 6. The very first release of a Love Child blend was 100% soured Bourbon Barrel Quad, but each subsequent batch has included an increasing amount of Flanders-style red. For that reason, the strength has been steadily declining from the 12.5 ABV of Love Child No. 1 to more recent releases in the 8-9.5% range.

Following primary fermentation with our house Belgian yeast strain, the component batches of beer were aged in a variety of whiskey and wine barrels as well as stainless steel tanks. Following aging in those vessels with lactobacillus and brettanomyces, 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 blend, but rather to offer a blend of the very best sour beers we have on hand. The blend for Love Child No. 7 breaks down as follows: Previously used red wine barrels – 48% Previously used whiskey barrels – 30% Stainless tanks – 22% The resulting beer was blended together in a bottling tank on our Smokestack Series bottling line and inoculated with brettanomyces and our bottle conditioning yeast strain.

Pouring a slightly hazy, reddish amber hue, Love Child No. 7 opens with aromas of red fruit with a slight acidity detected. Lactobacillus provides a crisp, refreshing acidity with fruit, oak and subtle spice notes presenting in the flavor of the beer. Ending fermentation quite dry at 1.75 Plato, Love Child No. 7 tapers to a subtle oaky finish that begs for another sip. At 8.2 ABV and 9 IBUs, our latest Love Child blend is a perfect match for aged/funky cheese, desserts with fruit and tangy/citrusy salads. Love Child No. 7 is a limited release that is available exclusively in 750 ml bottles.
