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.

Time to catch up before BCTC. Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Throwdown. Thank to everyone who brought great beer and ribs and pickles and everything! Cloudy orange with ring head. Sour woody aroma. Woody tart orange barnyard hay farm, but no real horse balls. Awesome dry finish. Excellent.

Not as sour as I hoped, but it is a good beer and sour enough. Pink color. Yeast in the aroma and flavor. A little bit sour. Moderate berry flavor, and it is real fruit because this is quite dry. Some brett in the aroma. Good. I believe Skyview shared this; thanks Bob.

Tmoney99 (10408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle shared at Noogfest High 5. Poured a hazy dark orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with virtually no lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Bottle @ Cuvee de Castleton release. This sour just pushed my anticipation of the release. Really nice sour, will ry to get my hands on a bottle of my own. Many different flavors that come together well.

Shared by VFerg. Thanks. Light tart easy drinking fruity kinda thing going on. Very sessionable. Not a whole lot there though in the flavor department. Consumed next to Sophie which I felt was a better crafted beer.

Sampled at Noog 5. One of the various sour beers I was lucky enough to taste. Orange/red grapefruit like color with a bit of hazy and a wispy head. Bready aroma with hints of fruit and tartness. The flavor is nicely tart as the aroma suggests but not particularly strong. Just a remnant of peach and strawberry like notes with a wet finish. Pretty good overall.

Big thanks to the Goose Island people for bringing this to Des Moines Brew Fest. Pours a nice hazy pink with some odd perfectly round floaties, berry seeds? Weird yeast? I have no idea. Aroma has some berries, they used blackberries eh? I guess that seems about right, I caught some raspberry in the aroma, along with plenty of funk and oak and a little vinous character. The flavor is dry and sour with a nice fruitiness from the berries, it’s funky and tart and beautiful. I need more of this.

Bottle, courtesy fishingnet. Reddish pour, creamy white head and thick lacing. Nose is tart, some cider, nice dry hay touch. Lactic, acidic, etc. Flavor is big tart cherries, smooth acidity. Very drinkable.
