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. reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013

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. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
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. portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2013
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!

Know any jokes about Sodium?
$18 a bomber. About what I expect from a sour. Probably won’t spend on getting this one again - but it’s good. rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bouteille de 650ml embouteillé le 26 janvier 2012. Quel honneur que de boire cette Juliet 2012
bouteille #1440 merci Patrick. Liquide rouge, saumon foncé avec pas de mousse. Au nez cette
bière est un mélange explosif de fruité / boisé. Une touche surette transperce tout comme des
notes d’écuries. En bouche c’est acétique, boisé, une sorte de bonbon suret. La final est sur le
bois et le vinaigre de framboise. Un classique. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle poured a red amber color with a little fiz of off white head. Aroma has tart berry, medium acidity, oak, and seedy bitterness. Mouth feell is on the light side and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has quite tart berry, oak, creeping acidity, red grape skin, and some light funk. Quite powerful on the flavors and got more sour as it fully warmed. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Quite the tart change of pace from the Paradisi. This really shows off the wine notes. Some spice in the back but I get a jolt of sour at first and then another at the back of the palate. I got a little cherry note as well. Might be just me though.
