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.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2008
FoBAB 2008 offering: #806 - A very interesting sampling from Goose Island. Real murky brown pour with a small white head. Touches of funk and oak in the nose with a mild fruitiness. Taste is oaky, with dryness and vanilla, and notes of sour berries. Funky barnyard notes are present, but not prominent. Lighter fare, well carbonated, but very nice. Taste lingers quite well on the palate.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Tap at the Blind Tiger Goose Island Event: Pours ruby with a fading head. The aroma is tart and fruity. Notes of grape skin, a touch of sweet berry, vinous qualities and a subtle sweet vanilla cask note. Slick body with a fruity tart presence in the flavor. Cleansing cranberry-like tartness and fruit skin tannin character. The later flavors have mild oak and just a slightly sweet cask note of vanilla. Finishes with residual fruity tart notes and oak. An interesting fruit beer; well integrated.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Draught @ BTAH, ’07 vintage. Pours cloudy, dark strawberry red, with thin, fizzy head. Nose is fantastic - sharp, tart red fruit, berries, sweet notes blending with acidic sharp tartness and a barnyardy funk also. Really delicious. Flavor is funky up front, musty, barnyard, bit of wet leather, with a matching fruity tartness, sharp, more acidic - red berries coming through clearly. Wonderfully drinkable, funk lingers without being overwhelming. Mouthfeel is light with a vibrant, sharp carbonation up front.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Fobab VI. This is kind of like a holy grail for GI fans. Pours a nice light amber with a fuzzy, foamy head. Nose is very softly tart and a touch funky, some nice grassiness, hops and rye spiciness. Some juniper and very minimal berry flavors. There are some sour bugs in here as it has a very clean tartness. I could drink this one all day. Very good.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2008
GABF 2008. Pours hazy light amber with an average, rocky, white head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (straw), light hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (earth) with notes of wood and blackberry. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a sour finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and sourness.

Aubrey (3432) - 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.
