3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 vintage, bottled Aug 14. $16 @ Binnyís. Off to Thanksgiving weekend with my family, most of whom wonít be drinking. So Iím "laying down a layer."
Oops! Opens with a gusher that wonít stop pumping foam out the top of the bottle. Once it finally calms down in my Goose Vintage stem glass, I have a cloudy caramel beer, a bit pinkish,with loose sediment, a loose foam on top. Has a definite red wine nose, with faint berry background subsumed by aromatic malt. Taste is quite tart. Lacks the creaminess of New Glarus Raspberry Tart. Another pour now shows a nice, fizzy champagne head. Starts to drink more like a champagne, thanks to, I assume, a secondary ferment. Tartness grows on me, with a little bit of fruit. May be a little shallow, but a decent American sour beer.

Draft. Pours a cloudy, light reddish amber. No real head. Fruity, berries.. Wild, good yeast character.. Sour. Little funk, barnyard. Wine barrel. Nice collection and balance of tart, sour, fruity. Nice sensations on back of tongue and throat. Not too dry. I like that the fruitiness was not overtaken, kept a excellent balance. Great initial berry. The shared glass went fast!

Pours a copper, burnt orange color with little foaming. Aroma is sour with some fruit background. Taste is smooth smooth sour but not much of the fruit comes out. The texture is thick and luscious. A great beer, I just wish some of the blackberry flavor and sweetness came through.

Bottle from Total Wines. 750ml Reddish pour, no carbonation. Nice mix of Brett and dark fruit aromas. Mild sourness, balanced well with the dark fruit flavors, some wood in the background. Dry finish and easy to drink for a sour.

Bottle. What a treat. Great blackberry and barrel notes in the nose and taste. Good full mouthfeel with solid pucker action. Awesome beer and shockingly drinkable.

Juliet is an astonishingly complex domestic sour which features a very light hand with regard to the addition of fruit. Contrary to the description above, I would not at all suggest this to Pinot Noir enthusiast; however, its expression does resemble Burgundy in complexity relative to other beers. It could also take the place of sparkling wine if there are no expectations with regard to terroir. Anyone with an interest in Belgian sours should definitely explore Juliet.

Pours a clear copper from the bottle with thin ring of white head. Aroma is funky sour yeast, slight sweet fruitiness. Taste follows, more of the berry flavor than the nose, tart acidity. All of these are great.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber pour with a bubbly white head. Super funky aroma, sour dough, pizza shop, gym socks, dark berries, citrus and leather. Nicely balanced with tart dark berries up front with citrus rind, pizza shop, leather and hay. Medium bodied with tart berry in the finish. Damn fine.
