22oz bottle. Pours red with a small ring of white lacing. Lively carbonation. Aroma is of cherries, wood, yeast, funk, and spice. Taste starts off very sour with lots of tart cherries and apple. It slowly mellows after a few sips, allowing a lot of spice, yeast, and oakiness to come through. The finish is very dry with some hints of tangy fruit and hot spice. Body is light. Mouthfeel is light, almost fizzy due to the carbonation. I definitely enjoyed this beer.

Bottle shared by Hophead22 from pantanap.. Pours a glowing orange with a white lacing head..Aroma is sweet fruits and sourness.. Taste was drier than the aroma would lead you to believe. Had a nice sour tartness to it. Tasty.

Sampled at Noog 5. One of the various sour beers I was lucky enough to taste. Orange/red grapefruit like color with a bit of hazy and a wispy head. Bready aroma with hints of fruit and tartness. The flavor is nicely tart as the aroma suggests but not particularly strong. Just a remnant of peach and strawberry like notes with a wet finish. Pretty good overall.

2010 bomber from a trade 2 years ago... Deep brilliant ruby red with a white head. Acidic, vinous nose with some band aid tartness. Nice oak levels with dark fruits, Cabernet notes and a pleasing level of acidity throughout ... The band aid notes are distracting and bring the beer down a few notches. Semi tart finish with lots of blackberries and more band aid.

Fresh, lively raspberries dance on my palate, infused with bright carbonation. Not too yeasty, earthy, funky; just fresh fruit in yo face. Juliet 2012 is one of the best values in sours today.

22 oz. bottle, pours a clear ruby red with a small off-white head. Aroma of blackberries, raspberries, dark fruits, some wood tannins, and red wine barrels. Flavour is fairly tart, but also very juicy, full of blackberries and raspberries, wild yeasts (definitely some brett in there), and subtle use of the cabernet wine barrels to accentuate the complexity. Very complex, with a very refined mesh of flavours. My favourite of the Goose Island sour ales. Excellent stuff - very sophisticated.

22 oz. bottle. Pours hazy amber red with little to no head. Aroma is sweet tart little funk and wine corks. Taste is more the same with he fruit characteristics showing well and the sour and funk is nice and gentle. Palate is medium and slick and very dry. Solid!
