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.

gtmw 08....seemed like a long line for this one.... poured a hazy reddish auburn brown with a thin soapy white head.... aroma of tart red berries (that’s all i gots).... slightly tart berry flavors with spritzy carbonation. pretty drinkable. not terribly complex but a nice take on a tart fruit beer.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 on tap at GTMW ’08. pours hazy reddish amber with whtie head. aroma of sour, tart, berry, sort of medicinal. flavor is mildly tart and sour, medicinal, black berry, raspberry, refreshing brew. 3.7.

4/10/09, 2009 vintage, pours red with white and pinkish head. nose is funky, musty, tart berry, wood, vinegar, and vanilla. flavors are musty, flabby wild berry, vanilla. the fruit falls off too quick leaving a fizzy acidic dry finish. rather acidic, age could help the sharp acidity but will likely make it even less fruity. 8/4/7/3/15=3.7..

GABF 08: Deep burgundy with a nice quarter-inch head on the one-inch pour. Went down easy enough. Not overly sour (though it did have solid sourness). Had some really nice fruit flavors and aromas (blackberry plus other flavors and esters). Had a freshness about it that made it rather pleasant.

Tap at the Blind Tiger Goose Island Event: Pours ruby with a fading head. The aroma is tart and fruity. Notes of grape skin, a touch of sweet berry, vinous qualities and a subtle sweet vanilla cask note. Slick body with a fruity tart presence in the flavor. Cleansing cranberry-like tartness and fruit skin tannin character. The later flavors have mild oak and just a slightly sweet cask note of vanilla. Finishes with residual fruity tart notes and oak. An interesting fruit beer; well integrated.

FOBAB 08’. Poured amber with a little head. Aroma was barnyard funk, rye and wood. Taste was vinegar, small berry flavor and rye with a decent finish. This one didn’t stand out too much for me. enjoyable but a little underplayed and one dimensional.

4/25/2009: Goose Island Juliet has a sour aroma and a tart/sour, dry, delicate fruity flavor. Its color is peachy red. This beer is fairly light on the palate. Good overall.

Sample from bottle at Dark Lord Day 2009. Rating #38 for this beer.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Light peach/cherry color with lite fizzy head. Sour cherry aroma. A sour dry cherry/berry flavor dominates. A tad thin but still an excellent beer.

Shared by VFerg. Thanks. Light tart easy drinking fruity kinda thing going on. Very sessionable. Not a whole lot there though in the flavor department. Consumed next to Sophie which I felt was a better crafted beer.

Not as sour as I hoped, but it is a good beer and sour enough. Pink color. Yeast in the aroma and flavor. A little bit sour. Moderate berry flavor, and it is real fruit because this is quite dry. Some brett in the aroma. Good. I believe Skyview shared this; thanks Bob.

Bottle shared at Wild the Wild Beers Are 2009. Aroma is tart fruit, only slightly sour. The appearance is red, hazy, white head. The flavor is tart fruit, bread. The finish is again tart fruit, but is slightly sweeter than expected. Decent.
