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.

Last one from an awesome box from deyholla. Pours a beautiful deep ruby orange with tiny fizzy head that recedes quickly. Smell is sour vinegar and very sweet fruit. Flavor is sour up front with a smooth berry finish. The berry is not too sweet and has just the right balance. Prickly carbonation and light-medium mouthfeel. Awesome sour, probably my favorite of the GI ladies.

keanex (1787) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottled August 1, 2013 (3.5 months old).
Appearance: The body is mildly-moderately hazy with a bright orange hue with a purple hue. The head is short and effervescent with a tan hue, quickly disappearing with no sign of a head left after itís gone.
Aroma: The aroma was pungent with blackberry on the pour, but as it sits itís very fruity with sweet blackberry, sweetened by aromas of confectioners sugar with a mild backend of cabernet. The aroma leans sweet, but not overly so, with good strength. I enjoy this.
Taste: The intro is sweet with sugar and berry fruitiness, the sour build up quickly to a strong sour blue raspberry flavor you find in some ice pops or candies. The sourness quickly becomes vinegary, finishing out the flavor with a slight pucker. After a few sips the flavor reminds me of a blue raspberry soda, albeit, not as sweet. The finish lingers a moment of vinegar and blue raspberry, very enjoyable.
Palate: Full-bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This is my favorite of the Goose Island sisters. I find this to be complex, sour and very drinkable. I love the blend of flavors and I love the sweet undertones. This is great.

Stine (1759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Bright, brazen orange. Cloudy. Aroma is lightly funky, with cheeses and salts foremost, fruit beneath, and minerals and sugars at the end. Complex and lucid.

Very tart and pleasant flavor; pineapple, cayenne pepper; intense, but calm. Firm yeast textures in breads and brown spices; dark fruits, oak, vinegar; tons of different sensations, all of which are positive, distinct and softly put forward.

Bright, toned palate; brisk and light, but full bodied. Some vinegar and pit fruit flavors nearing the finish. Really masterfully done, and so understated, i loved it. Thanks Ty!

MacBoost (1744) - Penfield, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2014
2012 bottle, 22oz. Murky dark pink pour, little head. Aromas of wood and fruit. Taste is very tart and dry. Flavors of tart blackberry jam with some woody pie crusts. Nice. Wonder if it dried out in the bottle a bit or if it was brewed this dry. Very lactic, slightly funky. Very tart. I like this a lot.

Bottle from chicagodri. Thanks Paul! Pours a reddish-pink color with a fluffy light pinkish head. Big fruity nose with plenty of horseblanket funk. Prickly and tart. Quite acidic. Funky fruit, currants, red wine flavors along with some wood barrel notes. Dry as hell. Nice sour. Probably slides just below some of the big boys in the category.

Hazy amber pour with a bubbly white head. Super funky aroma, sour dough, pizza shop, gym socks, dark berries, citrus and leather. Nicely balanced with tart dark berries up front with citrus rind, pizza shop, leather and hay. Medium bodied with tart berry in the finish. Damn fine.

Bottle which I purchased from Goose Island Cly ($30) so I could quit looking for it in the stores. Pours light cloudy pink with a pink head. Aroma of blackberries, strawberry, light wood, and the wild yeast, slightly sour. The flavor is tart and finishes dry. I wish it was a little more sour, but still a fine beer. I just wish I hadnít spent the $30 on it.

Reddish orange pour, this is a fruity bomb with some funky tartness. Some pinot flavor and fruity goodness. This is a nice sour with a dry finish.

750 bottle thanks to pantanap. A bit of small gusher but no issue. Light orange and hazy. Nose is wonderful-a bit fruity, bretty, and some spiciness. Taste is very subtle with some light wild yeast, a bit of fruit, effervescent, dry, with a light body. Very light alcohol presence. Eminently drinkable.
