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.

A murky brown color with a large off-white head. Slightly sour aroma, woody, hints of vinegar soaked cherries. On the dark and acidic end of the biere de garde spectrum, approaching Flemish sour ale status. I like the woody touch, though the dominant flavor here is something close to lemon. Seems like itís stuck in between two styles: Flemish sour, and dubbel. Itís still pretty good, and has a place if for nothing else than for some interesting food pairings.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Amber to garnet pour light carbonation and thin white head. The great think about this one is the taste. Loads of Brett and lactic tartness. The malts were there but subdued. The balance of the sweetness to tart was 20/80 just like I love it. Some odd metallic taste on the finish otherwise it would have scored better.

Botella de 330 ml. adquirida en New Beer Distributors, LES, New York. No soy fanático de las Wild Ales pero esta se deja tomar. Rojiza y casi sin espuma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Amber pour with a small white head. Crisp and fresh sourness, with a hint of stables and a little bit of dank, red berries. Sharp and dry sour, with notes of sour red apples and a finish of a bitter grapefruit.

Good funk to this beer pear and plumb tastes that leave you with a slight dry mouth feel. Sour but not overly sour.

Possibly the first sour beer I ever tried, itís still almost exactly as I remember it being six years ago. Caramel coated sour apples, a bit peppery, I recall thinking there had to be cherries in this and being shocked that there were not. Still paramount to an understanding of the style.

Drank straight from the bottle. Initial reaction was surprised because I didnít know it would be sour. Not bad, but too sour for me

Bottle at home. Aroma is fermented red fruits, oak, light smoke, strawberry infused balsamic vinegar. Sweet / tart, with notes of berries, caramel, dusty old hops, oak, light vanilla, light funk. Decent souring on the finish. Very good.
