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.

Tried at DLD courteous of a random beer fan. Poured light red-brown with a nice white head. Had a fruity aroma. The sour taste was pleasant, gave the beer a real good finish.

Bottle via honkeybra, thanks dude! 30th rating of this beer, shared with dalekliz and my girlfriend, on the night of the lack of Lost, and as such is dedicated to Juliet on the show. Pours an amazingly beautiful with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and fruity and a touch vinous. Taste is sweet, tart, rich juicey and acidic, with some clear vinous notes. I gotta say this isn’t perfect but its damn damn damn tasty, and as liz says its ridiculously pretty.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2009
Bottle from Binny’s in Orland Park, Cook County, Illinois, in the United States of America: It pours a hazy amber bosy with an egg-shell head that quickly reduces to a ring. Spotty lacework.. The aroma is toffee, berries, wet straw, and a tart Brett funk. Sharply acidic in the taste, it also has a touch more fruitiness, some white vinegar, and a bit of rust. Dry tart/sour finish with some underlying berry sweetness. Quite nice and will age well.

Bottle, Jan. 09. Opaque ruby-red grapefruit color with a fine pinkish head. Toffee, butterscotch, and tangy berry nose. Funky, acidic undertones, kefir? Flavor is more one dimensional and much more what I was expecting. Acidic with the wood and blackberries coming through nicely. Soft but lively carbonation. Abrupt, soda like finish. Very nice.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2009
Pink hued amber color with a diminished, again pink tinted taupe color. Caramel and tart cherry scents. I somehow feel transported to a carnival with caramel corn and cherry slushy in hand. Light and airy feel. Hints of malt in the front, but quickly diverted to the side. Tart cherries and berries dominate the middle. Lightly acidic in the finish. Quite clean linger, with a hint of iron. Some wheat and malt sweetness wander about at times. This seems to beg for a hot summer day. To bad all the global warming "nut" want to spoil this for me.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2009
[Sampled a few times before. Rating from 22oz bottle] Pours a semi-murky tea colored with a fine white head. Aroma of lightly cheesy/yogurt, funky yeast, faint moldy mixed dark berries. Flavor follows, very drinkable, not extremely sour, more like slightly tart, this by no means would offend anyone with its puckerness, really quite moderate, tart tangy mixed moldy berries, touch of yogurt, actually very dry which is pleasing. This is a great introductory sour, small very fine crisp carbonation, lovely, thinner body, not sticky at all, super drinkable... quaffable.

BeerBunker (725) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours red with a small ring of white lacing. Lively carbonation. Aroma is of cherries, wood, yeast, funk, and spice. Taste starts off very sour with lots of tart cherries and apple. It slowly mellows after a few sips, allowing a lot of spice, yeast, and oakiness to come through. The finish is very dry with some hints of tangy fruit and hot spice. Body is light. Mouthfeel is light, almost fizzy due to the carbonation. I definitely enjoyed this beer.

22 oz. Couple sessions. Split 3 ways, and 1 to the dome. Orange body with white head that seems a tint of pink or red @ times. Sweet aromas of pie crust n breadiness. Champagne like fruitiness. Belgian yeasty funk. Some wood, cherries, blueberries, apple release more as warms. Mouth is tangy. Sour, but not to the degree of my last sour, La Folie. Mouth is thin to mild with some sweet oakiness in between and a very VERY dry woody end, similar to a wine. Carbonated like a champagne. Had to give this a 2nd shot @ the price point. Sweet fruit on linger. Only my 3rd sour but seems to be on the mellow end of the style. Should buy one to age for a bit. Looking forward to rest of the series.

HonkeyBra (3516) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2009
22 oz bottle, bottled Jan 09. Red pour with white ring around the rim of the glass. Aroma of cheese, funk, light sour fruits, wood. Flavor is sour cherry, blackberry, and medium sourness. Light funk, rye, oak. Easily, my favorite goose island beer.
