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.

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.

Just incredible!!!! About a year old and extremely offensive and tart. The blackberry didnít show through a ton however, this is exactly what an American sour should model themselves after

2009 Vintage bottled August 14, 2009. AROMA: Aroma of berries and wine. APPEARANCE: Pours a cloudy reddish gold color with lots of soap like foam. Head is white with a red hue. TASTE: First taste is tart berries and earthy, then quickly turns tart and finishes try with a woody taste. PALATE: Crisp and lively, lots of carbonation here. OVERALL: Iím a really big fan of this beer. In my opinion, it is the best of the three sisters. I still have one bottle of 2009 left and have yet to try the 2010. Can the "new" Goose Island keep up the quality? I hope so!

A grand sour ale. I tried this in a vertical tasting, one from 2012 and one from 2013. The difference was in potency of the sourness which was more acidic feeling in the 2013. As it ages, it loses tartness in favor of sourness.

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.

Light, crisp, refreshing. Perfect amount of tartness. Alcohol is so well hidden. I cant imagine this being any better.

The taste is incredible but extremely restrained. The backbone is vinous, but not terribly acidic or overbearing. Then suddenly flavors of freshly mashed tart blackberries start to bleed through, leading to one of (if not) the cleanest finishes Iíve ever experienced. Finish is incredibly crisp, dry, but refined from the oak. The whole thing just works.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 An incredible mix of tart berry flavors, Belgian yeast, red wine, and very subtle spice notes. Incredibly nuanced and complex. Despite being a true connoisseurís beer, this is one that anyone can enjoy - it is delicious, and quite refreshing as well. Juliet rivals Westy 12 as the best beer Iíve ever had.

Sour fruit aroma, and reddish brown cloudy color. Has a wonderful berry sour flavor with a lot of fizz, and a cabernet long finish.
