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.

Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! We decided to dedicate this to Juliet on Lost and I think it fits aptly. Pours a gorgeous orange-pink-red with a white ring. Rich sour-tart aroma, of under-ripe fruit, wood, and yeast. Sour and crisp taste, of tart fruits, yeast, wine, and a hint of sugar. Lingering crisp sourness that ends a bit watery. Drinkable and quite nice.

2009 Juliet- bottled on my birthday :). This is also the review # that corresponds with the day I was born (not planned at all). This was a crazy gusher which made quite an event at our family gathering. Poured into my duck rabbit snifter (~10 oz). A- Body is a dark translucent pink color with uniform fogginess. Pours with a very foamy light pink head which suprisingly doesnt take long to settle to 1/2 finger and very little lacing is left behind in the glass. S- Nose is quite tart-with an acidic tartness striking first, behind this is raspberry, a hint of vinegar, and a hint of funk-the main character is the acidic tartness. T- As with the nose the acidic tartness is the first to come through in the flavor-at a moderate strength-behind this is dry raspberry and a hint of funk. The tartness quickly fades and almost disappears for the finish allowing a dry mild berry flavor to shine. Nothing really lingers on the palate. M- Carbonation is quite high and tingly with a lightweight, slightly dry body. D- This is a very good wild ale overall. The highlight is the tartness-but overall its mild to moderate with a clean finish. This was a good sour to start the family off with as its not really offensive.

Not my favorite style but I felt it was worth trying at a bottle share to see what the fuss was all about. Pours reddish pink color with a fizzy white head that laces nicely. Nose and taste is tart with notes of cherries, spice, and wine. For those who enjoy this style I am told it is a great beer. For me, I can appreciate where they were going but its just not my thing.

22oz. bomber, 2009 bottled Aug 14, with a big thanks to FlssmrBrewAlum. Gushes on opening, with a ton of light pinkish white foam that settles down in a few minutes. Pours a cloudy rose color with a large fluffy pink-white head that lingers. Aroma is oak, grape skins, ripe fruits, and some dusty funk. Flavor is very mild, with more grape skins, oak, ripe dark fruits and only a hint of funk. Nothing too crazy here, but more subtle and light. A nice summer drinker with enough complexity to keep it interesting. Thanks again Adam!

Bottle. Pours a very nice reddish/purple with fine bubbles and no head. Tart, fruity aroma. Nice dry finish. Light body, a bit acidic.

Blah. Wish I had another bottle for saving to see if them wild yeasts would liven this thing up at all. Found it to be extremely bland-O. Light berry aroma and flavor, extremely dry, barely any noticeable sour or tartness. Just felt dead to me. Blah.

The taste is incredible but extremely restrained. The backbone is vinous, but not terribly acidic or overbearing. Then suddenly flavors of freshly mashed tart blackberries start to bleed through, leading to one of (if not) the cleanest finishes I’ve ever experienced. Finish is incredibly crisp, dry, but refined from the oak. The whole thing just works.

Small sample from bottle @ Zeebra II. Pours hazy dark golden with a ring white head. Aroma is a bit tart with grapes, some fruitiness, wood, slightly vinous. Taste has grapes, fruitiness and an over medium sourness. Finish is quite dry. Nice.

Bomber, shared. Pours what looks like a ruby red in the low light of the bar (could be wrong, maybe it’s lighter), with a small head. Aroma is largely wild yeast with a bit of sour cherry and light fruit detectable as well. Taste is fruit and citrus up front, with a vinious characteristic, and the beer has a wonderful sour/tart finish. It remains clean, it does not get overwhelmed by any of the flavors, and the alcohol is well-hidden. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer; another winner from Goose Island.

I got a 750mL bottle of the 2012 in Spring 2012. Pours a copper orange that is hazy and has a slight but quickly disappearing head. Scent is strong of aged blackberries. The taste is mostly of fermented blackberries that are fruity, delicious, and has a good drinking texture. Mixed with some wine but I’m not sure what kind of wine. Has a dry finish. A delicious beer that doesn’t really taste like a beer.
