4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sour tangerines, grapes, musty oak, spicy clove, and coriander make up the complex aroma of La Roja. Orangeish brown in color, with a persistent white ring and very fine bubbles across the top of the beer. Mellow flavors of sour grape skins, some spice, vanilla and as it warms sour cherries make up the flavor. Dry, thin, high carbonation, and somewhat astringent. An excellent brew from my new favorite American brewery.

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.

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!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
