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.

hopscotch (8907) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Bottle...This beer rocks!... Murky caramel in color with a mid-sized, frothy, khaki head. Wonderfully complex, floral aroma with notes of coconut (vanilla & wood), brown sugar, lime, tropical fruit and light perfume. The well-balanced flavor is full of caramel, tropical and citrus fruits and just a rumor of bourbon. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, mildly bitter, dry, finish. Grassy. World class brew!

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2008 Brown/amber. Big, bubbly, tan head. Gorgeous nose- sour fruits, oak, vanilla, earth, toasted caramel, subtle spice. Same flavors, dry finish. Medium body, softly balanced carbonation. Excellent.

Metalhead (627) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2005
This crap is near drain pour. It would have been if not for the price. Poured a very cloudy diahretic brown with a large head. Taste was terrible. Like a bad mixed drink at a cheap wedding mixed with stale butter cookies. Could’nt quite place it but this stuff BLOWS! Even worse when very cold. a 3.85 avg,c’mon??!

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2005
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy particulate orangish brown body with a large beige head. Interesting aroma of butterscotch, red and green peppers, maple syrup, vanilla, oregano, and florals. Flavor of caramel, fruit, and spices. Full bodied with a thick creamy texture. Enjoyable and unique!

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2005
750ml no date. Style points for a cool label/packaging. Beautiful ruby red in color sporting a creamy layer of froth. This one gets a five for appearance. Fantastic and complex aroma. Berries, fruit,caramel, wet cardboard, peppermint, this ones got alot going on. Lots of spices here. Body is silky smooth with a crisp effervescence and medium to full. Flavors are also complex. Slight sourness, really funky flavors that are blend or fruit, malt,spice and yeast. Overall a really impressive ale that I recommend trying.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2005
Shared this bottle with walleye. Hazy reddish orange color with a decent sized beige head. Sweet fruit aroma(apples, pears, plums, and maybe some peaches). Also some alcohol as it warms. Not a fan of the taste. Bitter chalky taste with a hint of some fruits. LIngering bitter finish. The more I drank it the less I liked it I’ll pass on this next time

TChrome (1415) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2005
Gorgeous red color with a totally retained off white head. Aroma is subtle, refined and has notes of medium fruit, caramel, and yeast. Flavor is also subtle with sour hints and a bit of malt sweetness; lightly acidic and effervescent. I continue to enjoy Jolly Pumpkin Ales.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2005
750 mL, capped bottle: rich, garnet, violet hued body below a thick, tight bubbled off-tan head, that leaves behind a dense Styrofoam-esk lace. Sweet & light aroma with caramel coated plums, dark red grapes, vanilla beans, oak bark and a soft, creamy icing. Yeasty esters linger just above the glass and mix with a slightly more than subtle banana alcohol presence. Liquid hop pellets slide across the tongue while rich, bitter leather tannins round out the palate offering an interesting twist and combine with a dry, spicy earthiness to really sooth and relax the body and mind after a long day…truly a special brew.
