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.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2008
GABF 08: Deep burgundy with a nice quarter-inch head on the one-inch pour. Went down easy enough. Not overly sour (though it did have solid sourness). Had some really nice fruit flavors and aromas (blackberry plus other flavors and esters). Had a freshness about it that made it rather pleasant.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2008
On tap at Publican: This poured a beautiful red/brown/maroon in color with a thin head that fades away. The nose shows a tartness with aromas of rye, berries and hay. In the mouth this has great balance. It has great tartness but also comes off quite smooth and refined. It continues to improve in the glass and is one that really needs to be consumed by the glass vs. a small tasting. It really hit a sweet spot and is something I could drink all the time. I can’t wait until they bottle this one!

GABF’08. Aubrey’s wife was raving about this. Aroma is lots of barrel and sweet blackberry. Some oak butter in there and it mixes with the new American sourness light though. Taste is some sour berries and really not much past that, surprisingly. Not overwhelming in the flavor from all the disparate parts, I guess that can be considered an achievement.

(Draught) Pours a reddish golden body with a small white head. Aroma of sour fruit, rye, and biscuit. Flavor of sour blackberry/raspberry, light herbal, and rye.

GTMW 08 - A damn fine beer. Pours murky brown with a minor tan head. The aroma has blackberries, lactic acid, light yeast and some grapes. Medium body with subdued tight carbonation. The flavor starts with sour lactic traits, followed by blackberries that seems very authentic and has a pithy characteristic. The finish is sour and tart with some graininess. Almost seems like a sour ale. Nice offering.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 on tap at GTMW ’08. pours hazy reddish amber with whtie head. aroma of sour, tart, berry, sort of medicinal. flavor is mildly tart and sour, medicinal, black berry, raspberry, refreshing brew. 3.7.

4/10/09, 2009 vintage, pours red with white and pinkish head. nose is funky, musty, tart berry, wood, vinegar, and vanilla. flavors are musty, flabby wild berry, vanilla. the fruit falls off too quick leaving a fizzy acidic dry finish. rather acidic, age could help the sharp acidity but will likely make it even less fruity. 8/4/7/3/15=3.7..

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2008
GTMW 2008: Reddish deep amber hue with very good lacing. The aroma has notes of tart cherries and blackberries, a tad funky, woody and biscuity. The taste has a WOW factor, tart and crisp acidic fruits punched by a notch by the rye and wood. Extremely refreshing beer that just hit the spot. A very nice creation from the folks at GI. I drank more than wrote notes on this one thanks to Mr. Hall.

gtmw 08....seemed like a long line for this one.... poured a hazy reddish auburn brown with a thin soapy white head.... aroma of tart red berries (that’s all i gots).... slightly tart berry flavors with spritzy carbonation. pretty drinkable. not terribly complex but a nice take on a tart fruit beer.

Tap GTMW 2008 Aroma is lactic sourness, red fruit, some cereal. Taste is similar. Dull fruit, berry, and rye. Finishes dry, fizzy and berried. Not an overly layered beer, in my opinion, just a nice meshing of ingredients that is very good.

Great Taste 2008. Another impressive fruit beer, and again one of the highlights of the festival. So much going on here, it was hard to separate the flavors of sour ale from the spice from the blackberry. The came off as somewhat of a combination of New Glarus Raspberry Tart and Founders Red Rye, which as you might imagine, was excellent. Notes of blackberry and currant mesh with sour cherry, honey, hay, and vanilla. The complexity makes this worth seeking out.
