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, split with my bride. Pours a clear, brite, reddish-brown color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, blackberry. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, fruity, blackberry, a little Belgian yeasty, with a nice tart finish. Very tasty.

(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.

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

Thanks to fishingnet for this one! Light, tart and fruity. Nose is slightly funky and lactic berries. Flavor is subdued and slightly watery. It is a good flavor, I just wish there were more of it. Sour berries, mostly.

Bottle. 22 oz. Split with Tom and his buddy. Pours a brownish ruby with a small, off-white, tiny-bubbled head. Aroma of raspberries, cranberries, pinot noir, stringent sour yeast, and some strawberry jam. Itís outrageously delicious; musty, oaky, full of vinious notes complex sour red grapes, and huge heaps of strawberry and raspberry preserves. Body is supple, and palate is tongue-cuttingly tart, and wonderfully dry. This is a tremendously well-rounded and balanced sour ale. Fantastic.

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 doesnít live up to the promise that the nose offers.

Pours orange with low head, aroma is tart vinegar and grape and berries taste is tart and sweet with a lingering finish, very similar to Lolita.

Bottle. Pours a copper amber with a bright red hue. A huge foamy, rapidly dissipating head that leaves no lacing. After a swirl and dump of the bottom of the bottle the beer becomes murky, and darker red and leaves thin vinuous red lines of lacing. Aroma is tart, sour with a rich sweet cherry note. Flavor is aggressively tart, sour with an acidic character. Finishes with a mild lingering sourness, and a lively carbonation that leaves lingering flavors long after a sip.

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
