Goose Island’s Juliet

Sour beer fans, this one is for you. The Belgian-style wild ale known as Juliet comes from Goose Island and offers tangy bursts of tartness and wood followed by a long finish and the slightest suggestion of blackberries. The large-format bottle is ideal for sharing but after a few sips you might suggest to your drinking partner that a bottle each is more appropriate. If you happen to have an unopened leftover, it will age for up to five years. Pick up a 765 ml bottle ($24.99) at Whole Foods, 1550 N. Kingsbury. —Michael Austin
