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.

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?

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!

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.

$18 a bomber. About what I expect from a sour. Probably won’t spend on getting this one again - but it’s good.

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.
