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.

2009 vintage, bottled Aug 14. $16 @ Binny’s. Off to Thanksgiving weekend with my family, most of whom won’t be drinking. So I’m "laying down a layer." Oops! Opens with a gusher that won’t 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.

Pours a clear light copper orange. Has a very sour and tart fruit aroma. An immediate extremely sour and very tart fruit taste of grapes, wine, and oak. Once the sour kick goes, it leaves a dry wine and sweet fruit taste.

he aroma was cloudy dark copper with a near pink colored head. Nose of funk and wood. There was also some raw plant matter, like a pile laying in a greenhouse. The taste was fairly tart with some hay. A sweet finish.
