3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of decoman from TBS. Bottled 8/14/09. Pours a cloudy, essentially opaque reddish-brown. Very red, almost pink. Very bubbly, tons of tiny bubbles in the head. Taste is very fruity...raspberry, cherry. Not as sour as I was expecting - a very drinkable sour. Girlfriend liked it too.

Bottle pours light amber color with white head. Aroma is subtle oak and barnyard. Flavor is berry like, tart, funky, smooth, dry, and is overall a very well done beer. I’d drink this again anytime. Very nice.

$18 a bomber. About what I expect from a sour. Probably won’t spend on getting this one again - but it’s good.

Bottle, courtesy fishingnet. Reddish pour, creamy white head and thick lacing. Nose is tart, some cider, nice dry hay touch. Lactic, acidic, etc. Flavor is big tart cherries, smooth acidity. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[300th rating] aroma of light yeast funk and subdued but bright citrus. appearance is burnished orange, nearly the color of, well...oak. flavor is ultra tart. blackberries are definately not out in the open, which i appreciate: they served to fuel the yeast but were certainly consumed as no horrible ’bad lambic’ sweetness remains. flavor is just plain sour and even a bit peppery. the only other flavor element that comes to mind is of a vinous quality, marked by the super dry finish. so dry in fact that is burns the throat for just a moment then passes and leaves cleanly.

This beer had a very tasty blueberry flavor along with the tartness of a sour. Flavor was still bright and well balanced. Nice clear color, good carbonation, and a tasty sweet finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh 2013 bottling. 8.0% abv. Been wanting to try this for years. Bottle served in a tulip. Pours hazy dark orange amber with almost no head. Has a slight fizz to it. The nose is terrific and voluptuous. Red wine, oak, tannin, and tart fruit galore. The blackberry shows nicely. Perfection? Perhaps. This will be interesting with age. Medium sour attack that shows vanilla from the oak and an oily, thick tart fruity finish that last and lasts. Worth seeking out.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours hazy orange with hints of purple and a super tiny white head. Smells sour, vinous, and of blackberries. Taste follows the nose, lots of sour fruitiness and blackberries. Medium-bodied with an astringent texture and average mouth-carbonation, Goose Island Juliet finishes sour and prickly.
