3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[300th rating] aroma of light yeast funk and subdued but bright citrus. appearance is burnished orange, nearly the color of, well...oak. flavor is ultra tart. blackberries are definately not out in the open, which i appreciate: they served to fuel the yeast but were certainly consumed as no horrible ’bad lambic’ sweetness remains. flavor is just plain sour and even a bit peppery. the only other flavor element that comes to mind is of a vinous quality, marked by the super dry finish. so dry in fact that is burns the throat for just a moment then passes and leaves cleanly.

Pours an interesting palate pinks, oranges and reds. Notes vinegar, basement, blackberries (real). Incredibly tart without being overwhelming. Palate: somewhat slippery

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours hazy orange with hints of purple and a super tiny white head. Smells sour, vinous, and of blackberries. Taste follows the nose, lots of sour fruitiness and blackberries. Medium-bodied with an astringent texture and average mouth-carbonation, Goose Island Juliet finishes sour and prickly.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh 2013 bottling. 8.0% abv. Been wanting to try this for years. Bottle served in a tulip. Pours hazy dark orange amber with almost no head. Has a slight fizz to it. The nose is terrific and voluptuous. Red wine, oak, tannin, and tart fruit galore. The blackberry shows nicely. Perfection? Perhaps. This will be interesting with age. Medium sour attack that shows vanilla from the oak and an oily, thick tart fruity finish that last and lasts. Worth seeking out.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

Tap GTMW 2008
Aroma is lactic sourness, red fruit, some cereal.
Taste is similar. Dull fruit, berry, and rye.
Finishes dry, fizzy and berried.
Not an overly layered beer, in my opinion, just a nice meshing of ingredients that is very good.
