COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Roja is brewed in the Flanders tradition. We blend this beer from oak barrels where the beer has been aging for 12 months or longer. Weve added 10 lbs. of cherries and let this beer mature for additional time in the firkin. Truly an ale of grace and distinction. La Roja is a beer that we offer year round. Roja du Kriek is a beer that we made special for you at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Mahalo Plenty.

Were listening to Pat Boone singing Enter Sandman. Does this make the beer better? Maybe. Sweet lemon and asian pear.

Ferris (13810) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle - Light cherry and some barrel spicy notes. Cloudy copper gold. A bit bland, cherry and a touch of raw wood. Nothing of interest, although not bad just bland.

DuffMan (9917) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle sent by b3shine and shared at the RBAG winter event. Slow gusher! Very hazy dark orange, tart cherries and light phenols, cherry juice, seedy and woody undertones, dry tart finish, but lacking punch, edging on watery even. Good stuff, but a little thin.

Ungstrup (35892) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2016

maekchu (3695) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2016
Bomber. Thanks to Mike. Dark fruity nose, plums, rustic and earthy, some fumes. Cloudy reddish/amber, very little head. Dark cherry, plums, wood. The oak has mellowed things and added its own touch. Thin-medium body and very lightly astringent. Very interesting nose (one guy said "shochu," and that is a pretty fair approximation.

Sammy (11641) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
A decent drinking cherry ale, tart cherry but not too much and I do like cherry. Not a typical kriek. February brewed, found at Premier.

DocLock (10260) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2016
750 capped bottle from Whole Foods and Capones. This one is a gusher. Pours turbid copper toward ruby with frothy, off-white head. Nose was tart cherry, yeasty funk, oaky tannins. Tastes dry, with notes of cherry, oak, yeasty funk. Reminds me of a yeastier cherry version of Sly Fox Blackberry Reserve. Decent kriek.
