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 shared by mfielden on BA at a tasting. Thanks, Mark! Pours a cloudy reddish color with a medium-sized off-white head and good lacing. Had this in the middle of a series of wild ales and lambics. Aroma was not incredibly pronounced compared to some of the Cantillons and such. Bretty funk, prosecco, red wine, and red berries were present. Flavor is tart, slightly funky and bretty, with red wine, prosecco, blackberry, and raspberry. Fairly light on the body with slight acidity and lasting tartness on the finish. Drinkability is high and this is pretty refreshing for a wild ale. Overall very good, but not quite a standout within its style.

hombrepalo (1936) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Poured amber with a too much head, extra carbonated. Aroma was barnyard funk, rye and wood. Taste was vinegar, small berry flavor and rye with a decent finish. Very easy to drink but lack a bit more of a kick.

A Mes rate. Bottle at Borefts 10am day after hotel tasting.
An excellent red amber colour with a pinky off white head. An amazing Belgian style base beer with a stunning delicate sourness. Beautiful stuff, clean as hell and really downable. Something that reminds me a lot of Mr. Kipling’s Cherry Bakewell tarts. And that’s a good thing. Lovely dry finish with plenty of barrel showing but it sits just right. Excellent beer.

Sample from black friday tasting. Gold body with white head. Aroma had a fermented aroma maybe little below other sours. Good sour and tart flavor. Thanks to Rusty i think.

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.
