UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 A - pours light pinky/purple apple juice with 1 finger head that fizzed out quickly. S - wow! Didnít I say that for Gillian? Aromas of tart berries, cherry pie, lacto, musty oak. Sweet like a berry pie and lemony lacto sour. Yum. M - light medium body. Full palate. So complex. Oaky butteriness, lacto/lemon tartness, sweet dessertiness, fruit juice. End is lingering sweet fruit juice. T - complexity is the word. Starts as sweet lemony blackberry pie, crust n all, some buttery oakiness. Palate is a sweet blackberry-canned pineapple juice. Oaky and a nice funk join in. The lacto sourness is nicely subdued and fits well with the beer. Not agro. O - well shit. Goose island is continuing to kick ass, nay, has improved since InBev bought them. So many great sours distributed more. All their classics still good and so much more available, and bcs. Mmm. But I digress. Juliet is damn good. As was Gillian, halia, Juliet. Iím psyched I can get them in Cali. 4.1

Iíve been on a sour ale kick lately, and this is the best Iíve had so far (even better than the real Belgian sours). An incredible mix of tart berry flavors, Belgian yeast, red wine, and very subtle spice notes. Incredibly nuanced and complex. Despite being a true connoisseurís beer, this is one that anyone can enjoy - it is delicious, and quite refreshing as well. Juliet rivals Westy 12 as the best beer Iíve ever had.

Bottle over X-mas break 2013. Poured effervescent dark straw with white head. Nose was white wine grapes, oaky, lactose. Tasted tart, with definite chardonnay overtones, some oaky tartness, and a fruity finish.

2013 bottle in a teku. Pours amber/ruby/pink with an off-white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of sour/funkiness, oak, a good amount of blackberries, wine, some light caramel and pale malts, plus hints of spice. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A really good sour with the oak and blackberry adding nicely.
