Name – La Roja
Country – United States
Type – American Wild Ale
Appearance – Pours a reddish brown color with a nice off white head.
Smell – Funky and sour nose with green apples and cherries apparent.
Taste – There is a dry funkiness to it. The cherries come through tart with a bit of a taste of the oak. Not nearly as fruity as I thought it would be.
I had been wanting to try this one from Jolly Pumpkin for awhile. Last time I went to Orlando the place I went to was only out of this one. It didn’t have as much sour fruit flavor to it as I thought it would. The yeasty funk flavor is a little more prominent. It is still good but I was slightly let down from what I was expecting. Damn me and my expectations.
Overall Grade – B
