COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Redlight in Orlando, FL. Aroma is extremely unique...fermented cherries, cheese rinds, musty oak. Taste is loads of wood, musty cherries. Taste like it was aged 100 years but still so fresh and lovely.

Bottle from Spec’s. Cloudy reddish-amber with a small but lasting pinkish-whitish head. Aroma of sour cherry, oak, yeasty esters, and maybe a hint of caramel and vanilla. Medium bodied and quite dry with smooth but somehow lively carbonation. Taste is oak and cherry, moderately tart and slightly sweet. Good.

Hazy pink color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, wild yeast, some wood. Taste was sweeter cherries, toast, light tartness. Not nearly as good as Rojzilla.

baraciisch (2730) - California, USA - APR 16, 2016
Murky amber brown in color... Aroma of light brown malts, overripe cherries, floral notes... Flavor is very subdued, nutty tones without as much cherry as I was expecting... Definitely can tell its there, overripe cherry notes especially towards the end...Minimal tartness... Decent but I think I prefer the original ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
