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.

750ml bottle thanks to Eric. Cloudy orange/brown pour, smallish beige airy head. Cherries as expected in the aroma, along with some candy elements, and a bit of wood. Taste adds some vanilla to the cherries, as well as additional barrel notes, a bit dusty and musty.

[ 750mL ][ 6oz ][ Texas Liquor ][ $18 ][ Teku ][ 6.25.16 ]
>> Murky red orange color with thicker head and, fantastic lace especially for style. Spiced cinnamon baked apple pie nose with hints of vanilla as it warms up. Taste begins with very soft carbonation, leather, low to no acid, Brett only it seems, low cranberry, low cherry. It hits the mouthfeel and flavors of Flemish red but has almost no acid. It works, though, being infinitely drinkable like a cross between dark saison and Flemish red. Super soft body - this one evaporated from the glass.

An interesting take on the Kriek. Oak is pretty apparent, some lingering vanilla, the cherries offer a tartness more than sweetness. Sweet maltiness. Bought in Indy in 2016.

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.
