    Bottle from Styles. Pour was beautiful for an aged brew, nice off-white head over a fully amber body with some deeper reddish hues. Aroma was bretty funk, citrus, caramel, tart fruits. The flavor followed, everything coming together wonderfully from the aroma along with spicey oaky (cedar even) barrel elements, tart apples, and vanilla. This is up there with some of my highly liked Russian River products, and I'm incredibly glad to have had the opportunity on this one. Thanks, Chris, a generous bottle to have sent me!

    Cherry brown color with ok lacing even in my small sample (thanks to eaglefan438). Huge aroma of brett. The flavor was a wonderful brent of brett, sour and tart fruit and heavy wood and ash notes. Nice.

    Big thanks to Ogglethorp for this one. A huge nose of whiskey, eggnog, sour, lactic and peppery. Taste is figs, oak, whiskey, vanilla with a nice dry finish. I'd now like to get a hold of the regular La Roja to find out the differences. Perhaps I did this a bit backwards? Oh well. A great mistake.
