4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Poured from a bottle. Has a dark hazy orange golden color. Light amount of head dissipated quickly. Smells sour. Has a light sour body in the mouth. Tastes like tart sour blackberries. Such a delicious beer. Very enjoyable
