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.

2010 Bottle; Pour is slightly cloudy strawberry in color - Fizzy white head initially , but it does dissipate rather quickly, and simply rings this snifter in a mild way. Spices and blackberries on the nose, with a Belgian yeast note that isnít quite Belgian, to me. I find the aroma to be the strong suit of this brew. On the tongue, there is a certain crispness from the carbonation that lingers through the finish. It is sweet, to be sure, and has a sour feel, but I suppose it isnít what I want it to be. Blackberries, Strawberries, Oak, and a very slight spiciness rounds it out.

í12 bottle from a BA trader - thanks! Pours a murky copper with an orange hue with no head. Aroma is lightly tart with berries, clean oak, a but of sour suggesting lemon, and balanced acidic sour. Taste is tart fruit with sour and lemon and a bit of red wine flavor before even more sour and tart through the finish. Slight vinegar aspect but itís considerably dialed back and much more in balance than what you typically find in sours from the Bruery and Cascade. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. I am very impressed - excellent sour.

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

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.

On tap at Whole Foods. The pour is a brilliant ruby-ish orange with a quick fading head and no lace to be found. The aroma is also quite good. It's got a great fruitiness to it with just an awesome funky sourness. There is also a light booziness which I like. The fruits are both sweet and tart, and just lovely. The flavor is definitely sour, with a nice fruitiness backing it up. There is a good overall tart sourness and I just love it. The mouth feel is a little thin, not very carbonated, but decent. The aftertaste is nicely sour and fruity and delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
