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.

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 (1046) - 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.

CraftBeerNick (1144) - 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 (8126) - 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

Keg at Siren. It pours cloudy red with a small white head. The nose is floral, rosehips, cherry, raspberry, Granny Smith apple, earth, Brett and wood. The taste is crisp, tart, sour cherry, red grape, vinous, some acidity, lemon sherbet, Granny Smith apple, earthy brett, floral and good mouth-pucker. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Crisp, tart and mighty drinkable. Very nice indeed.

tectactoe (2979) - Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 Tap @ Jolly Pumpkin: Opaque orange-y copper with a slight brown tint; small, gray-tinted head quickly disperses to a mild collar. Aroma of tart cherry skin, slightly musty hay, mild wood, & some vinous grape notes coming in & out. Not as woody or funky as La Roja but the cherry shines beautifully. Hint of sour lemon, too. Flavor is on point. Tart cherry, lemon flesh, slight yogurt-y lacto, a hint of dusty cellar must, some mellow & wet oak, & a tart, drying finish. A kiss of acidity but nowhere near burning. Beautifully done, great execution. I hope these guys start cranking out more fruited classics.
