A - Poured with a slight head that faded very fast. The beer is incredibly bubbly. An SRM of 11, dark purple red appearance with a slight cloudiness.
S - I can smell the Blackberries from 2 feet away. It’s filling the room easily. Wow. Smells very close to the Boon Frambois. I’m getting a huge raspberry scent and a big oakiness with tannins.
T - Wow. Intensely tart right at the start. Raspberry and Blackberries dominate the glass. Perhaps I drink so much Frambois, that I’m confusing the tartness of the blackberries with raspberry. High acidic qualities. Pickle juice and nice citrus notes on the finish.
M - 40% carbonation. Light body. Tartness lingers forever and ever.
O - Exceptional. Worth the price and the wait. This is a fantastic beer...I’d like a little less pickle juice taste but overall, very nice.
2012 bottle. Bronze in color with a small white collar of foam. Strong blackberry aroma, sharp tartness, slight cotton candy flavor. Nice. Great mouthfeel on this. Acidic, sharp, nice carbonation. Fruity, tart, some noticeable blackberry. Very nice. My favorite of the ladies. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2012
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. xscottypx (104) - Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2012
vintage 2012. pours a copper with hints of plum, light fizzy white creamy head. light retention. soft berries on the nose, subtle lemon and tartness. nice sourness through out. soft blackberry and dark berry flavor. some light lemon and dry oak. very moderate carbonation, great tingle which helps bring out the berry flavor. overall, very delicious. never boring. 8% makes it a bit slower of a sipper but really easy to drink away on. great flavor, cannot see it improving.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Date: June 8, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: Trade with fullobs Description: Semi-opaque orangish brown with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was sour funk, red wine, bready, berries, wood and spice. Taste was consistent with aroma, the wood really came out in the finish. Thin to medium palate and a little bit of carbonation.

Post Borefts I Invasion of Fonefan and Charlottes room tasting! Cloudy amber beer. Crisp dry palate. Sour and fruity and a little sharp. Finsihes very dry and with some minerals. Decent sour, a bit dry but not too puckery!
Delicious, sour grape/apple aroma. Bright, clear amber colored pour with very little head. Flavors of tart green apple, raspberry, and grape tannin. Very light palate with a medium tart/tannic finish. Very nice! FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Very lucky to have snagged a bottle of this. It seems like it’s even more evasive than Lolita in the Twin Cities area. Bottled 1/26/12 - bottle # 1247. Poured from 22oz bottle to snifter:
Pours a glowing, beautiful pinkish golden pear. A short-lived, fizzy off white cap fades off to a thin dollop of a head. Slow, pinpoint beading. What a nice looking beer.
The nose is just as bright - sour berries, aggressive tart character, yeast, a bit of rhubarb, white grapes, a touch of booze far and away.
Exceedingly complex on the tongue. Tart, drying fruits... some bright grape notes, faded hop character, a touch of sour peaks before a very dry finish.
I think I prefer this one to the Lolita. A bit more balance and drinkability. Really a delicious beer I think. DalzAle (2037) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle. Dark tan/reddish pour a little carbonation and a very sour aroma of fruity blackberries and wine. Flavor is also very tart berries, woody with a dry sour finish. Definitely good, but not $20/bottle good.
