4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Batch 2 bottle. Pour is slightly cloudy with a purple hue and a large very effervescent light pink head. Lots and lots of bubbles with a few floaties. Aroma is strawberry, cranberry, blackberry, champagne, light wood, tannins, and wine. Really enticing and light aroma. Flavor is intensely effervescent and very true to nose. It really tastes like it smells with a dry finish. Love the berry and wine flavors. Not too much sour detectable, just very well balanced.

Fresh, lively raspberries dance on my palate, infused with bright carbonation. Not too yeasty, earthy, funky; just fresh fruit in yo face. Juliet 2012 is one of the best values in sours today.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the Johnís Creek Beer Growler. Dark ruby colored, with a lot of carbonation, but no head. The aroma is distinct red wine, with some notes of pine, caramel, and coriander. The flavor is strong and unflinchingly tart, with a little backbone of fruity sweetness. Medium body, a little sticky, acidic, and very lively on the tongue. Overall, this is a well-made, well balanced, and very aggressive sour ale.

Hey it tastes great. Is it amazing? No! Very sour. Very nice aroma. Light orange pink color. No head. Sharp new oak wood barrel notes. Vinous! Mostly just straight up sour beer.

Bottle at home with the wife. Nose is big wine barrel notes, red fruits, blackberries, wood, vanilla, funk. Pour is nice - a hazy reddish purple color. Flavor is lightly spicy with notes of grapes and blackberries. Not overly tart but definitely has a kick to it. Decent.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 A - pours light pinky/purple apple juice with 1 finger head that fizzed out quickly. S - wow! Didnít I say that for Gillian? Aromas of tart berries, cherry pie, lacto, musty oak. Sweet like a berry pie and lemony lacto sour. Yum. M - light medium body. Full palate. So complex. Oaky butteriness, lacto/lemon tartness, sweet dessertiness, fruit juice. End is lingering sweet fruit juice. T - complexity is the word. Starts as sweet lemony blackberry pie, crust n all, some buttery oakiness. Palate is a sweet blackberry-canned pineapple juice. Oaky and a nice funk join in. The lacto sourness is nicely subdued and fits well with the beer. Not agro. O - well shit. Goose island is continuing to kick ass, nay, has improved since InBev bought them. So many great sours distributed more. All their classics still good and so much more available, and bcs. Mmm. But I digress. Juliet is damn good. As was Gillian, halia, Juliet. Iím psyched I can get them in Cali. 4.1

Thanks to fishingnet for this one! Light, tart and fruity. Nose is slightly funky and lactic berries. Flavor is subdued and slightly watery. It is a good flavor, I just wish there were more of it. Sour berries, mostly.

Bottle. 22 oz. Split with Tom and his buddy. Pours a brownish ruby with a small, off-white, tiny-bubbled head. Aroma of raspberries, cranberries, pinot noir, stringent sour yeast, and some strawberry jam. Itís outrageously delicious; musty, oaky, full of vinious notes complex sour red grapes, and huge heaps of strawberry and raspberry preserves. Body is supple, and palate is tongue-cuttingly tart, and wonderfully dry. This is a tremendously well-rounded and balanced sour ale. Fantastic.
