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.

Bomber shared with my bro on nye 2010 to 2011. Pours a light reddish brown with a glowing pinkish hue, small quickly fading white head. Aroma is funky barnyard, nice fruity note. Definitely some woody wet earthiness along with the light fruit notes. Flavor starts sweet and mild, nicely soft and fruity before picking up some funky notes, then a sharp citric lemon tartness. The tart notes linger with the blackberry definitely up front. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Very nice beer, happy new year! Many more beers to come! :)

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.

2009 Bottle - Thanks for popping this Toby! - Pours a ruddy orange with a medium white head...aroma is cherry and lemon, oaky, phenolic...flavour is bone dry, lactic red fruit, more lemon...more reminiscent of a belgian lambic than a sour, to me at least...finish is tannic and tasty...

beernbourbon (1496) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2009
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.

Huge thanks to Fear025. Bottle pours red with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of tart berries, oak, light caramel, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of vanilla, leather, and tons of lactic goodness. Overall, probably my favorite of the 3 sisters, and very well balanced. I only wish I had some more.

On draught at Belmont Station. Reddish golden color. Aroma is cherry, berry, tart funky yeast, light vinegar, white wine, and oak. Taste is sweet and sour cherries and blackberries, pungently tart yeast, white wine, and wood. Gary tickle in the mouthfeel, really balanced sour fruit and yeast finish.

22 oz bottle, 2009 version sample December 2010:gushes on cap removal...I barely manuvered the bottle over the glass, losing just a few drips and bubbles. Pours with a thick, billowy & fluffy off white head that loudly and quickly diminishes...strong, funky barnyard aroma is immediately noticeable...with notes of oak and lightly charred wood. Lively palate, though not overly so as I was expecting. Clean...while being fairly tart. I imagine there used to be light fruit, but that has faded to be replaced by yeast and nice bitters. Long, leathery and funky finish. This holds true to a great farmhouse ale, though I would classify as a sour...either way, nice.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2009
22oz bottle. Bottled January 09. Musty aroma. A slight bit of wet wood. Lactic and acetic acids. Tannic fruit pits. Yogurt-y. A slight spiciness... cinnamon maybe? Pleasant, but not a whole lot aroma-wise. Pours a cloudy peachy/orange/pink with a thin ring of white. Flavor exhibits a lot more character than the aroma. Lots of acetic and lacto. Barrel and fruit tannin as well. Quite dry on the tongue. Lively carbonation. Lots of lacto on the sides of the tongue with a very pleasant acidic finish. Not overly complex, but everything works very well for this one. Highly drinkable sour for sure. Thanks Kan!
