I was into my Wilds tonight. This is one that will be part of an upcoming Wild Feature on Barleydine. I just thought I’d show you all what I’ve been feverishly hording and drinking in private.

A – Slightly hazy amber/copper-colored body with reddish hues and half a finger of off-white head that settled to a thin film and left a bit of spotty lace.

S – Tart and sour nose suggesting green apple and sour cherry notes with a backing of syrupy malt. Aroma has a slight cough syrup aspect.

T – La Roja is sour and tart and, while only hinting at subtle hop bitterness, it is quite woody and oaky. La Roja develops into a syrupy dark fruit tang in the finish.

M – Medium body with lively carbonation and a syrupy texture. A little thin and watery overall. Finish is dry and sour with a good bit of astringency on the palate.

beer + food = Barleydine
