DeanF (2404) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2016
Aroma is good sour funk on the nose but it comes across as a bit too clean. Has a nice big head and penny copper body. Again, seems a little it too refined for a wild ale. Flavour is good sourness, but too thin, too simple. Kind of weak on the mouth. this is like the wild ale that went to prep school and has neatly combed hair, wears a schoolboys outfit, and doesnt cut loose. WIld ales should be mess to a certain extent and this just dont got that full field funk feeling.

LearninBeer (530) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2016
The aroma is malt, caramel, clove and a little earthy yeast. Pours a brown/amber with a creamy light brown head mostly lasting. The taste is sour-medium. The body is medium, the texture creamy and the carbonation fizzy, the finish astringent. Overall the buzz outweighs the taste.

There are strange and wonderful things going on in La Roja. It pours dirty red with not-white suds. The aromas are funky, fruity, and acidic. The flavor profile is an odd balance of sweet/sour/fermented. Malty caramel, booze-soaked wood, tangy cherry, sweet/tart citrus, balsamic and white vinegar, and funky earth. Its all so unusual, all so drinkable. Rot can be fun if you let the right brewer show you how.

Bottle. A- Oak, cherries, subtle sourness, overripe stone fruit A- Orange brown color, hazy liquid, beige head. T- Oak, caramel, cherries, slightly sour. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, full finish. O- Decent. Reminded me much more of a barley wine than a sour. Aroma was good. Something in the taste that I cant quite place that hurt it a bit for me.
