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.

Pours a deep amber with a thin white head. Aroma is strong barnyard funk and some cherry. Taste is sweet with some very mild cherry tartness, backed up by all the brett funk. Has a very light body with fizzy carbonation. This beer is definitely heavy on the funkyness and light on the lactic acid sourness. The most forward with funk beer Iíve tried as many end up being too heavy on sourness.

The aroma is malt, caramel, clove and a little earthy yeast. Pours a brown/amber with a creamy light brown head mostly lasting. The taste is sour-medium. The body is medium, the texture creamy and the carbonation fizzy, the finish astringent. Overall the buzz outweighs the taste.

There are strange and wonderful things going on in La Roja. It pours dirty red with not-white suds. The aromas are funky, fruity, and acidic. The flavor profile is an odd balance of sweet/sour/fermented. Malty caramel, booze-soaked wood, tangy cherry, sweet/tart citrus, balsamic and white vinegar, and funky earth. Itís all so unusual, all so drinkable. Rot can be fun if you let the right brewer show you how.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, full finish. O- Decent. Reminded me much more of a barley wine than a sour. Aroma was good. Something in the taste that I canít quite place that hurt it a bit for me.

Deep Amber with a nice head that leaves great lacing on the glass. Funk and earthy notes in the aroma. Sweet, sour, caramel tartness in the flavor with a tasty, tart caramel finish. Delicious!

anstei (1016) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle at Erzbierschof Zurich. A light and vineous sour. Beautifully red, slightly cloudy. Very round and balanced, almost quaffable, but also one-dimensional.

Stylurus (17) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Nicely tart and sour. 750ml had little head produced in the glass. Consumed in Jan-2016 and bottled in Sep-2015. This could make you pucker up with the lemony mouth feel. A great sour beer that is amber red in color.

Really enjoyed the balance of the malt and tartness. Have been hanging on to this for awhile and was pleasantly surprised with it.

Backlog. Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 06.05.13. Unclear dark golden. Aroma of gueze. Sour taste of lemon juice. Long and sour aftertaste. Relatively round mouthfeel. Well-balanced, with medium high drinkability.
