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. We’ve 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.

On tap at Sovereign in Georgetown DC. Pours a hazy red with a small offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of funky red fruits, brett and oak. Taste is moderately tart and nicely oaky. Winey. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate. Tannic. A very nice variation on the regular La Roja. Way more oaky.
