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.

Body is ruby color with only a little bit of off white head around the outside of the glass. Aroma is fully of cherries, wood, and vinegar. Very carbonated feeling on the front end, but the bubbles are quickly dissipating. The flavor is pretty sour with a bit of a red wine vinegar taste, then has a little metallic chalky finish.

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.

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

Alexanderdahl (111) - DENMARK - SEP 5, 2015
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, it’s 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.
