COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Roja, an artisan amber ale brewed in the Flanders tradition. Deep amber with earthy caramel, spice and sour fruit notes developed through natural barrel aging. Unfiltered, unpasteurized and blended from barrels ranging in age between two and ten months. Truly an ale of distinction.

Initially bright spicy light hoppy aroma. A whiff of milky sourness comes on. Medium sweet, medium to full bodied. Touch of wood, real bit of sourness, not enough to diminish the body, but it is definitely there. Very, very solid stuff!

dark reddish brown pour with a good head, slightly fruity aroma, but not very strong, spicy, fruity flavors, a bit like a sour ale, but not quite the same

Thanks to Hatchy. Pours a darker hazy brownish amber with a medium off white head that laced nicely. Aroma was a bit light. Picked up vegetables, some spice, malty, caramel and a bit musty. Flavors of the same...kind of hard to explain. A bit sour and vineous.

Distinct flavor and aroma of bourbon. Cloudy brown pour with short, off-white head. The flavor, beyond the bourbon, had notes of overripe fruits — apple and cherry. A sweet beer with a tart to sour alcohol finish that’s short in duration. The body leans toward the thin side. The mouthfeel is fizzy. Not a favorite.

Murky brown pour. Some light fruitiness in the nose (apple, cherry) is dominated by stale malts - bready and flat. The body is light with spritzy carbonation. More apple, cherry in the body, almost cough syrup like at times. Not cloying though, just a bit harsh. The finish is heavy with notes of sherry and vinegar. The yeast seems to get lost in all of this. Interesting, but one bottle is enough for me.

Huge head with a caramel apple-like aroma is quite pleasing some cinnamon and other spices are present as well, wonderful Nose. Appearance is a murky brownish-orange. Taste heavy fruit notes, apple definite, some citrus lemon perhaps, caramel, rather tinny too, Somewhat sour light palate at ends kind of flat. Nice spice filled and fruity brew, not my cup of beer (tea), but very pleasant and refreshing for a change.

Deep amber pour on this 750 ml bottle that I recieved from SuIIy. Thanks! Huge foamy head took a while to lower to a smaller creamy one. Aromas were mostly metallic with some apple and pear and currant. Flavors were definitely a pick up with toffee, caramel, and more fruit. Vineous and nutty too. Dry finish. Pretty good stuff.

Apple Cider smell. Brown redish and carmel like colors with a nice frothy white head. Real sour with a really dry finish, some berry flavors as well. Thin bodied with moderate/high carbonation, unflavorable finish. Unique beer very dry finish. The mix of sweet and dry was a little too much for me.
