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.

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!

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Sampled at Noog 5. One of the various sour beers I was lucky enough to taste. Orange/red grapefruit like color with a bit of hazy and a wispy head. Bready aroma with hints of fruit and tartness. The flavor is nicely tart as the aroma suggests but not particularly strong. Just a remnant of peach and strawberry like notes with a wet finish. Pretty good overall.

dark gold with moderate white head. mild sourness and fruity/floral nose. moderate to low carbonation for the style. very little initial bitterness before some floral hops and fruity esters come into play, some brett-tartness, but nothing overwhelming at all. if told of the blackberries i can discern some presence, but overwise I would just consider it part of the hops flavor. not sour enough and not enough depth to the flavor. somewhat disappointing

Sample from ridgewood. Sour but nowhere near pucker power. Bare minimal blackberry comes through. Leaves the palate dry for a long time. Like it a bit better than the peach Halia ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz 2009 bottle (bottled Jan 09) from NobleSquirrel. Pours a very clear bright orangish ruby golden with thin white head that reminds me of Alka Seltzer, but disappears much quicker. Nose is a winey, fruity, light acetic mix with some woody tones laying under it all. Lightly tanic and you can definitely pick up the blackberries and some apple, especially as it come fully up to room temp. It also looses some of the tartness on the nose as it warms as well. Light vinegar and thin fruitiness, with some dry peppery wood bitterness on the end. Really kind of watery, lacks depth and doesn’t live up to the promise that the nose offers.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bomber from 2012, bottled 1.26.12. Pours dark orange and lively, dark pink and orange in the glass, with a small and short-lived beige head. Aromas of sour cherry, blackberry, and raspberry. Tons of fresh fruit and tart seeds, wet hay, and some ripe cheese. The flavor is sweet and tart raspberry and blackberry; tart seeds and berry funk build gradually to a tart finish. The finish has bright, unripe berries, cheese, and mild barnyard funk, with perhaps a splash of Pinot Noir. Medium carbonation and body, savory and mouthwatering, quenching, and bone dry. Solid, and very tasty. I hate cellular immunity. [1089]

Bottle. The pour is a very hazy light red. The aroma is strong sour. A little more on the light side overall with the taste. Good for a sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Loved it...tart super funky and drinkable, this is a well produced sour. It puckers you slightly but there’s very good flavors from the barrel and the fruit. You get some of the berry as well as dryness from the oak now and I’m excited to see how this one ages.

timfoolery (1125) - California, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle from Beat trade. Aroma of sour blackberries and Brett. Flavor was much stronger with the same notes as aroma with a little funk compared to the sour factor. Palate was exquisite and I’m left wanting more. Excellent beer...I’ll trade for more...Pliny or RR sours anyone?
