OMG. So thrilled to be trying this one. Murky red-brown pour, not so dark. Funk, kriek, and wood on the aroma. Fantastic house character as always. Basic tart la roja base comes on first but then later you get this blast of all of this wood and these cherry tannins. Little bit of cocoa powder. Abundant carbonation is not overdone. It’s really super. Oh wow. Just kind of mouth-smackingly delicious. I think it’s all about the JP terroir. If you like that...this beer is heaven. My guess is that this is a point or two better than the regular Roja, though I’m not going to change my 4.3 rating there for now.

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. bursprak (3219) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2017
