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. Pours a very vibrant red (cherry cough syrup red) with an abundance of fizzy pink head. Aroma has funk in the forefront with lemon, yeast, and plum in the distance. Flavor is primarily funk/horseblanket with a touch of plum and sour cherry. Dry up front with some subtle tartness in the background. Oddly enough, the finish is flat and flavorless when I sip immediately after agitation. Only shake this one to smell, not taste.

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! :)

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...

JBPortland (1488) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2014
22oz bottle (2010 vintage) pours clear dark violet red with small fading fizzy head. Nose is musty tart acidic blackberry and funky barn oak, a touch acetic. Taste is tart semi sweet juicy blackberry, grape juice, touch of syrup, wood, subtle wine. Finish is semi sweet tart fruity blackberry and mixed berry juice, paired with dry old wood, and they play nicely off each other. Holding up very well for a bottle this old!

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.

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.

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.
