Bottle, courtesy fishingnet. Reddish pour, creamy white head and thick lacing. Nose is tart, some cider, nice dry hay touch. Lactic, acidic, etc. Flavor is big tart cherries, smooth acidity. Very drinkable.

[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

ICEatALAMO (1002) - Troy, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2013
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

SPDickerman (991) - Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2012
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.

cmonster (986) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2013
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.

Brouwerij (943) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy pink with quickly settling white head. No lacing. Aroma is tart, oaky, lactic, raspberry, acidic, strong oak, mildly funky. Flavor is moderately tart, oaky, raspberry, berry, oaky, tart, lactic, buttery. Moderate carbonation, light body, and moderately dry texture. Tasty, tart, lactic, very enjoyable.

JBPortland (934) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 7, 2014
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!

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2008
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.

Small sample from bottle @ Zeebra II. Pours hazy dark golden with a ring white head. Aroma is a bit tart with grapes, some fruitiness, wood, slightly vinous. Taste has grapes, fruitiness and an over medium sourness. Finish is quite dry. Nice.
