La Roja is brewed in the Flanders tradition. We blend this beer from oak barrels where the beer has been aging for 12 months or longer. We’ve added 10 lbs. of cherries and let this beer mature for additional time in the firkin. Truly an ale of grace and distinction. La Roja is a beer that we offer year round. Roja du Kriek is a beer that we made special for you at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Mahalo Plenty.

Draft to mini snifter at Liberty’s. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tangy fruit, cherries, vinous, oak, vanilla, some acidity, light funk, the more I drink the more oak comes out, solid offering.

umich03jm (2556) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Tap at Bierkeller. Murky orangish brown pour with very little head. Aroma is musty and damp. Rotten wood, vinegar, cherry skins, red wine, and light barnyard. Tastes very sour with strong vinegar, tart cherries and oak. Light barnyard show up in the finish. Low carbonation. Pretty darn good and very intense but not as smooth as I was hoping for.

Keg at Sirens 2nd birthday bash at Siren, 07/03/15. Orange/reddish with a moderate beige cap. Nose is jammy berries, musty wood, funk attack, tangy cherries, damp straw. Taste comprises earthy red berries, light spice, cherry skins, tarte red berry, funk, damp straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with subtle puckerings. Decent cherrified sour, not in your face, pretty mellow and approachable.

Nocturne (1082) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2015
Tap at Siren Festival of Wood. Hazy reddish orange shade. Ring of head. Vinous, fruity, grassy aroma. Taste offers a particularly strong sourness with lots of jammy fruitiness. Cherry is carried through well. Solid stuff but if I wasn’t craving a sour so much it would be a bit overwhelming.

mR_fr0g (5001) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015

CraftBeerNick (1174) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Tap at Siren, Festival of Wood, 7th March 15. This was disappointing, weak, not too much flavour. Dull beer compared with the heavy hitters surrounding it

Fin (8188) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
On tap at Siren, Brewery 2nd Anniversary Event, Finchampstead, Saturday 7th March 2015 Reddy amber in colour with a smattering of white bubbles atop. Fruity, sour and tart with some sharp bitter cherries giving the tastebuds a good funky scrubbing over. The woodiness softens the edges slightly, it’s a nice beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
