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.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 2009 bottled on Aug 14.
Poured a bottle of this into 2 snifter type glasses. Pours a reddish hued murky color with a huge slight pink head. The aroma is of the wild Brett and fruit. Some sourness notes in the noise. The taste is very good. The funky brett plays center stage followed by the blackberry flavor. The mouthfeel was extremely light. This bottle was really carbonated so I let it sit a while in my glass before enjoying.
Overall, I was really excited to try this and it didn not dissappoint. Very good overall.
**2012** vintage: Bottle. Pours a slightly clouded pinkish hued golden color with a whispy white head that collars around the glass. This is very fruit forward being such a "young" beer. Cherry, raspberry, blackberry notes. Light mouthfeel. Oaky fruit start, pretty tart. Woody, earthy finish with a touch of bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 A - pours light pinky/purple apple juice with 1 finger head that fizzed out quickly. S - wow! Didn’t 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. I’m psyched I can get them in Cali. 4.1

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.

765 ml bottle poured and split. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a wine like sour fruit aroma. Sour blackberry and grape front sour that is really tart, yet simple to drink. High carb. My kind of beer here. Loved it.

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.
