2015 Release. Very solid, could've had a little more fruit presence for my taste.

Blend 1: bottled 11-3-14
Poured a murky brown with basically no head. Smell is funky and tart. First few sips were nice and sour, but as it warmed, all I could taste was sherry vinegar. Very unusual mouthfeel. Overall, disappointed. LOVE the original La Roja....one of my all time favorites. This, not so much.

This was a 2012...Based on this sampling...Do not age this beer! It had the smell and taste of nail polish remover.

Smelled like turpentine and tasted marginally better. Was the 2012 batch.
