3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours pinkish amber with very small head. Aroma is Rodenbach-esque with deep berry notes, sweet malt, grape skin, balsamic, and delicate sour cherry. Bright citrus, too. Taste is sweet cherry and rosť wine with caramel, amaro, lemon peel, oaky finish. Havenít had regular La Roja in a while so hard to say how this compares, but itís excellent stuff.

Bottle. It poured a red color with a white head. The aroma was of tart cherries and wood. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tart cherries, wood and a solid sour finish. It had a medium body with a nice texture. Very nice.

750 ml bottle, labeled as La Roja Du Kriek to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DrSilverworm). Blend 2, bottled on 04/08/15. Looks good; a cloudy amberish dark caramel with thin fizzy white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes semi-tart and fruity with a nice cherry presence alongside a bit of oak. The amber malt bill complements the sour part of the beer nicely; like a pleasantly full Flanders. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pleasantly tart. Good beer.

Draught @ Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours hazy deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, cherries, some fruits, brett and tartness. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour with a long dry, sour, cherry and funky finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. An unclear, amber beer with a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma is lemony, vinegarish and lightly malty, with some berry and funk. Itís medium bodied and tart on the palate, quite effervescent. The berries are more evident in the flavor than in the aroma, with the same light caramel malts and vinegar sourness. Lasting funky, berry-ish finish. A bit too much vinegar for me, but sure nice anyway. 150614

Bottle, split with staff. Hazy red orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves kind of bigger ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of slick.
