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.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2010
750ml bottle, batch #12 from 2008. pours a hazy, bronze with hints of gold and a thick, sticky, khaki head and a thick sheet of lace. aroma is wonderful with big, tart, red fruit notes of berry and cherry with notes of red wine vinegar, sour grapes, tart apricot, and a definite funky presence balanced by sweeter touches of caramel, cinnamon, and wood. flavor was a bit of a let-down after the aroma but was still very nice with milder tart berry notes, dry red wine, and plum with a touch of vanilla, caramel malts, and bready yeast on the finish. the flavor was just not as sour as expected - was this one too balanced?! palate was medium bodied with big carbonation and a lingering, dry, mildly tart finish. overall, a very solid sour ale.

Disig bärnstensfärgad öl med ett kraftfullt smutsvitt skum. Doft och smak är bärig, fruktig, inslag av trä och brett. Torr munkänsla.

Draft at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. That's some proper flanders, very drinkable, strong red fruits and wood notes, little vinegar.

Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2017
Pours red with a tan creamy head. Smells sour, funky, bretty. A bit vinegary up front, balsamic notes, nice, a sharp texture. Lots of flavour but nothing seems forced. Aftertaste keeps building, not bad.

On tap at St. Augustine's during 54 taps Beerthirst event. Pours a hazy copper with a white hear. Aroma is some barrel and fruity notes. Same taste with nail polisher notes. Not bad.

Sampled at 2017 Dayton Alefest- sour pumpkin on the immediate taste. I appreciate the effort but not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
