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.

750ml bottle, batch #12 from 2008. pours a hazy, bronze with hints of gold and a thick, sticky, khaki head and a thick sheet of lace. aroma is wonderful with big, tart, red fruit notes of berry and cherry with notes of red wine vinegar, sour grapes, tart apricot, and a definite funky presence balanced by sweeter touches of caramel, cinnamon, and wood. flavor was a bit of a let-down after the aroma but was still very nice with milder tart berry notes, dry red wine, and plum with a touch of vanilla, caramel malts, and bready yeast on the finish. the flavor was just not as sour as expected - was this one too balanced?! palate was medium bodied with big carbonation and a lingering, dry, mildly tart finish. overall, a very solid sour ale.

A hazed maroon body supports a solid ring of bone white head with a pair of lace peninsulas

Rustic, juicy aromas and flavors with solid intensity of wine and oak backed by a gnarly earthy sweetness with moments of caramel-banana and bubblegum rounding into an array of fruit flesh offering blueberry, raspberry, peach, pineapple, grapefruit, and mango on a cohesive medium body with very rounded carbonation, resilient basement mold and wood with caramel accents holding on to the last moment of residual

As the residual acids and sweetness layer up, a nutty sense of pecan butter presents itself, a very solid take on the style full of complexity, depth, and bright-rich fruit characteristics

kerenmk (2990) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’. Murky brown red. sour, a little lactic, yogurt aroma. Sour, yet there’s some grainy undertones. Light-bodeid, hardly any carbonation, mild and tolerable sour finish. Nice.

Franckg (292) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2015
Arôme de levures bretts, citron et cerises rouges. Semble être très funky. En bouche, c’est savoureux. Pas très sour comparées aux traditionnelles rouges des Flandres. Un peu acide et goût de cerises et fraises. Touche de citron, chêne et alcool. La finale est moyennement sour, un peu amère. Effervescence moyenne. Une autre bonne bière de JP

EtTuCthulhu (1285) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 6, 2015
The appearance is a murky copper color with small off-white ring, and the aroma blends caramel malts, sour pit fruit (predominantly tart cherries), clove, and oak. The initial flavor is mildly sour, mildly acidic, and slightly sweet, but the aftertaste is a mellow, well-balanced slight sourness and sweetness. The palate fuses a slick texture, soft carbonation, a Pickering effect, and a medium body.

bg80 (44) - California, USA - JAN 29, 2015
From 12oz bottle. Acidic, fruity aroma. Pinkish red appearance, clear, rose-like. No head to speak of, no lacing. Predominantly sour, but funky and a little bitter. Light body, thin texture, nearly-flat carbonation, long, strawberry flavor, slightly bitter grapefruity-finish. Not quite sour enough, too funky and bitter for my taste. A little flat overall.
