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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish-orange with a white head. Taste sour, fruity, slightly sweet. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours red and hazy. No head at all. You can smell the sour from a mile away. Moderate carbonation. Puckering sourness! Must have for sour lovers. No hops to speak of, but you do get that real sour cherry and a bit of lemon bite as well. Finished surprisingly dry ad clean, get another sip! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2013
From the November 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tart vinegar, cherry, plum, oak and pepper. The flavor was tart and sour but was a bit thin with a tangy cider vinegar presence. Very long sour cider vinegar finish. Medium body. Ok.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Very similar to Monk’s Flemish Ale but much more seltzer like and drier. Decent but not as good as Monk’s.

Pours a amber with a small offwhite head. Aroma is tart, hints of paint thinner and dried hay. Taste is refreshing, light tartness and very well balanced. Somewhat light bodied.
