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 bottle. Pours a hazy red and pink with a big foamy pink head. some nice lace. aroma is musty, a little bretty funk, must. Flavor is dusty, dry, raspberry fruit juice, mold. lively carbonation. Tastes like a dusty moldy funky sparkling sour fruit juice. Not what i expected. refreshing and good.

22oz 2009 bottle (bottled Jan 09) from NobleSquirrel. Pours a very clear bright orangish ruby golden with thin white head that reminds me of Alka Seltzer, but disappears much quicker. Nose is a winey, fruity, light acetic mix with some woody tones laying under it all. Lightly tanic and you can definitely pick up the blackberries and some apple, especially as it come fully up to room temp. It also looses some of the tartness on the nose as it warms as well. Light vinegar and thin fruitiness, with some dry peppery wood bitterness on the end. Really kind of watery, lacks depth and doesn’t live up to the promise that the nose offers.

Bomber from River Grove Binny’s. Pours a hazy reddish amber with large fizzy pinkish head. Aroma is tart berries, wood and some dark fruit. Flavor is berries, wood, some sweet caramel, and light tartness. Nice balance between sweetness of the berries and tart flavors from the wild yeast. Nice carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Wish is was a little more sour. My wife really enjoyed this also.

Pours attractive deep and clear ruddy brown. Nose is tart and slight oak. A bit of berry in the flavor with the funk and barrel influence. A bit single faceted. Not much of a barrel influenced finish either.

Bottle 65cl. @ post Borefts BF 09 hotel tasting
Unclear medium orange amber color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, sour berry, dark berry, wood notes. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate to heavy acidic with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20091031]

2009 Bottle - Thanks for popping this Toby! - Pours a ruddy orange with a medium white head...aroma is cherry and lemon, oaky, phenolic...flavour is bone dry, lactic red fruit, more lemon...more reminiscent of a belgian lambic than a sour, to me at least...finish is tannic and tasty...

Bomber, shared. Pours what looks like a ruby red in the low light of the bar (could be wrong, maybe it’s lighter), with a small head. Aroma is largely wild yeast with a bit of sour cherry and light fruit detectable as well. Taste is fruit and citrus up front, with a vinious characteristic, and the beer has a wonderful sour/tart finish. It remains clean, it does not get overwhelmed by any of the flavors, and the alcohol is well-hidden. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer; another winner from Goose Island.

2009 Bottle - thanks to Toby. Pours an orange amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is sour and tart with fruity notes and oak. Dry, lingering vinous and oaky tart taste. Very rich and puckering. Has gueuze similarities... Delicious!
