COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in cabernet barrels with blackberries, Juliet is a tart, fruity, complex ale. Notes of wood, tannin, dark fruit and spice make Juliet an ideal beer to suggest to Pinot Noir enthusiasts and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian sour ales.

Bottle consumed multiple times. Pours a hazy reddish/orange/purple color with a small pinkish head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour berries, tannins, wood, mild funk, cab barrel notes. Solid drinking sour although the finish was a touch soft.

The beer pours a rich, pale purple with an amber flair. It sits in the glass as a rich, rose color with a small head of off-white bubbles that quickly leaves. In body, the beer is a deep, colorful murk with a definite opacity to it. When splashed against the sides of the glass it leaves a receding tide of lacing. On the nose, this thing is richly acidic with tart lemon, rich blackberry, blueberry, and even fresh and antiseptic mint. On a second sniff I receive rich, lightly toasted oak, soft malt vinegar, and smooth caramel malt. As I sniff more and more, I do get a sense of chlorine and pool house air, which isnít completely off-putting, but is odd. On the tongue, this beer is hugely vinous with rich acidity that blossoms into sweet fruit, very faint salinity, and the briefest kiss of herbal bitters. The finish is rich with oak tannin, sweet fruit, and soft acidity. In flavor, this beer is delicately beautiful. It begins as a rich tide of lime and lemon citrus that erupts into rich berry notes mixing strawberry, blackberry, and blueberry. This is then ballooned outwards by a rich, lightly roasted oak and soft earthy characters. The finish returns to bright citrus that blends the berry and oak into a long and fruit-forward finish. In the mouth, the beer feels on the plus side of medium with a rich, jam-like mouthfeel that gives a lovely bristle of fruit skin. Carbonation is soft but gives a nice sparkle and snap to the sip that keeps the beer from feeling heavy or syrupy. The mouth is left slightly wet and sticky from saliva. As I drink more and more the beer does become a little syrupy and left the tongue feeling a little heavy. The tannins add a touch of astringency that really helps with balancing out the syrupy sweetness. Overall, this beer is impeccably balanced. The syrupy sweetness does win out as you drink more and more of it, but it is never tiring to sip and the rich, subtle complexity in flavor makes it quite enjoyable. Goose Island must have a hell of cellar, and their blenderís tongue must be really refined because this beer is miles ahead of many of the other American Wild Ales. Haters be damned, Goose Island has still got it, and it is very good.

2010 bottle. Pours a clear red with no head. The aroma is strong blackberry, oak, and tannins. Thin mouthfeel with strong sour fruit, light oak and dryness. Easy to drink, very good.

Itís weird but I can relate to the nose of this to two of the other sisters (Halia and Lolita) even though yes this is different. Nose of grapefruits, sour grapes, acidic notes. Appearance of golden strawberry, no head. Taste, very tart, acidic, dark fruit acidic... tingly spices. Finishes tart, dry and sour. Top notch beer. Iím so conflicted, an inbev company and some great beers. The only way I can relate this is to Diagio and some of the success of single malt.

Pours an attractive reddish brown with an immediately dissipating head. Aroma of urinal cake, piss and fruit; mainly urinal cake. Tastes of soured box wine. This was a singularly horrid experience.

The aroma is fruity yeasty funky and sour. The appearance is amber with not head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a good style fit and almost indistinguishable from Lolita and not my thing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange color with a small foamy beige head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart and sour sugar and candied fruits. The flavor was tart and sour with a bit of chalk, mixed fruits and Sweettart candies. Medium length tart chalk and fruit finish. Medium body. Solid.

2012 vintage. Nice balance of tartness with a healthy sweetness from the raspberries. Has hints of bubblegum and a very slight amount of funkiness. Probably my favorite of the three sisters.
