Boulevard Changeling Dark Sour Ale Returns

Boulevard Changeling Dark Sour Ale ReturnsFrom Boulevard:

Changeling Dark Sour Ale returns on draft (NEW!) and in 750ml bottles beginning in the Greater Kansas City Area on July 9th.

Changeling Dark Sour Ale is an enchanting blend of sour ales aged in wine barrels, whiskey barrels and neutral oak barrels and stainless tanks that were inoculated with brettanomyces and lactobacillus. The beer pours a deep ruby color with touches of gold at the edges of the glass. Leading with plum and toasty malt, the flavor transmutes into a soft tartness, with notes of earthiness and funk provided by brettanomyces and a touch of lingering caramel to create a delicate balance.

Aromas of sweet caramel/toffee, raisin and plum give way to notes of lemon and tart cherry punctuated by subtle oak, vanilla and char. The mouthfeel is light and spritzy.
