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.

2009 Vintage. Bottled August 14.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, reddish-pink body with a very tall, rather fizzy, lightly pink head.

Smell: Airy nose of tart-scented berry-based spread, oak-based barrels, and a particularly small spoonful of salty bleu cheese crumbles tucked in back.

Taste: There’s a brief, light opening of sweet maltiness. A handful of berries, both ripened and unripened, firmly funky barnyard phenolics, and with a robust, zesty oak wood presence throughout. Though blackberries were used, it all keeps coming up tartish raspberries. Not overtly flavorful, the fruit, though ample for the proceedings. Modesty lactic. Cracklingly acidic. You’ll likely pucker. One drop of lemon juice, then a continued subtle fruitiness into the dry, fizzy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Highly carbonated.

Drinkability: There’s freely wild funkiness, there’s fruit, and plenty of bubbles. Interesting and enjoyable for a bottle’s worth.

2009 Juliet- bottled on my birthday :). This is also the review # that corresponds with the day I was born (not planned at all). This was a crazy gusher which made quite an event at our family gathering. Poured into my duck rabbit snifter (~10 oz). A- Body is a dark translucent pink color with uniform fogginess. Pours with a very foamy light pink head which suprisingly doesnt take long to settle to 1/2 finger and very little lacing is left behind in the glass. S- Nose is quite tart-with an acidic tartness striking first, behind this is raspberry, a hint of vinegar, and a hint of funk-the main character is the acidic tartness. T- As with the nose the acidic tartness is the first to come through in the flavor-at a moderate strength-behind this is dry raspberry and a hint of funk. The tartness quickly fades and almost disappears for the finish allowing a dry mild berry flavor to shine. Nothing really lingers on the palate. M- Carbonation is quite high and tingly with a lightweight, slightly dry body. D- This is a very good wild ale overall. The highlight is the tartness-but overall its mild to moderate with a clean finish. This was a good sour to start the family off with as its not really offensive.

Bomber shared with my bro on nye 2010 to 2011. Pours a light reddish brown with a glowing pinkish hue, small quickly fading white head. Aroma is funky barnyard, nice fruity note. Definitely some woody wet earthiness along with the light fruit notes. Flavor starts sweet and mild, nicely soft and fruity before picking up some funky notes, then a sharp citric lemon tartness. The tart notes linger with the blackberry definitely up front. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Very nice beer, happy new year! Many more beers to come! :)

22 oz bottle, 2009 version sample December 2010:gushes on cap removal...I barely manuvered the bottle over the glass, losing just a few drips and bubbles. Pours with a thick, billowy & fluffy off white head that loudly and quickly diminishes...strong, funky barnyard aroma is immediately noticeable...with notes of oak and lightly charred wood. Lively palate, though not overly so as I was expecting. Clean...while being fairly tart. I imagine there used to be light fruit, but that has faded to be replaced by yeast and nice bitters. Long, leathery and funky finish. This holds true to a great farmhouse ale, though I would classify as a sour...either way, nice.

10/9/10. Thanks, Lance! Bomber shared at Tally Sourfest. Light fruity and woody aroma with a slightly sour and quite winey flavor with plenty of dark fruits. A bit simple and light, but very nice.

22 oz. bottle from lushawn- thanks again, Shawn! 2009 vintage. Gushed a little when it opened but we didn’t lose too much. Pours a cloudy orange color with some reddish tints and a huge off-white head with pink tints. Aroma of red grapes, raspberries, lemon citrus, wood, tannins, and a general acidic sourness. The flavor is essentially the same, very fruity and tart, with some funky yeast as well. Medium-bodied, with high, soft carbonation and a tart, juicy mouthfeel. Really nice sour, fruity and not too harsh.

G: Poured into a Duvel tulip glass. A: Beautiful orange-pink rose color with a frothy, slightly pink head. S: Mostly sour notes. Tart fruit of cherries and blackberries. T: Sweet and sour from the outset. Makes you pucker on the first sip, and then mellows more into the fruity, sweet flavors, especially as it warms more toward room temperature. M: Sour on the tip of the tongue and the sides of the cheeks. Very light and crisp. Moderate to minimal carbonation. D: Very solid overall. Goose Island is really stepping up its game with the new collection.

Boittled@SBWF2010. Ambery golden colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some acidic wood, mild caramel maltyness as well as some spices. Flavour is acidic wood, some sour fruits, tart berries as well as some slight maltyness and spices as well. A rather wellbalanced and pleasant brew.

Batch 1. Pours an amber red orange with almost no head. A nice fruity nose: tropical fruit, orange citrus, lemon, and all around fruity. Tart acidic fruit flavors lots of acidic fruit especially cherries with some wood bringing in another layer. Good stuff. 8/3/8/4/15
