Boulevard Brewing Co. brewed its Hibiscus Gose earlier this year and put it on shelves from August to October.
The Kansas City Brewing is known for its Love Child series of sours that are brewed with brettanomyces and lactobacillus and aged in oak barrels. Other than the four Love Child series beer and its Za’Tart, Boulevard doesn’t do any other sour style beers. Its particular version of gose has Hibiscus flowers added at the end of the boil giving the beer a distinct pink hue.
Since its inaugural bottling run in December 2009, Bourbon Barrel Quad has been one of the more popular releases in the Smokestack Series of beers produced by Boulevard Brewing Company. Intended as an annual release, it has appeared on shelves every year except 2012, when the brewery announced that the beer had not developed fully and therefore would not be out again until the end of 2013.
