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

Bottle courtesy of decoman from TBS. Bottled 8/14/09. Pours a cloudy, essentially opaque reddish-brown. Very red, almost pink. Very bubbly, tons of tiny bubbles in the head. Taste is very fruity...raspberry, cherry. Not as sour as I was expecting - a very drinkable sour. Girlfriend liked it too.

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.

Bottle at home with the wife. Nose is big wine barrel notes, red fruits, blackberries, wood, vanilla, funk. Pour is nice - a hazy reddish purple color. Flavor is lightly spicy with notes of grapes and blackberries. Not overly tart but definitely has a kick to it. Decent.

(Yay... my 300th rating!) Bomber from early last year (2012). Pours a clear reddish amber, little in the way of a head. Nose is wine barrels, wild yeasts and cider. Mouth is acidic up front (ironically is more like a young Chardonnay than a Cab that was housed in said barrels) then tannins and dry cidery notes fading out into some fruity esters varying from quince to wild berries. Iím not really the sour sort, so my taste buds werenít as welcoming to this one as they were to, say, the BCS varietals that GIBC puts out, but I can be objective and do respect the craft that went into it... so on those merits this really is a pretty good beer.

Fresh, lively raspberries dance on my palate, infused with bright carbonation. Not too yeasty, earthy, funky; just fresh fruit in yo face. Juliet 2012 is one of the best values in sours today.

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
