Sans Pagaie translates to “without a paddle” and is our take on the Belgian-style kriek, a sour blonde ale aged in barrels with cherries. The base beer has a subtle funk that melds gently with the fruit giving this beer flavors reminiscent of coconut, vanilla yogurt and of course, fresh cherries. A complex beer, perfect for a warm California day in the park with a slice of home made chocolate cake.

Bottle share and special thanks to my good buddy Joe -

A: Pours a gloomy orange, ruby reddish/pinkish color. Head if slightly off-white with some retention, and little lacing

S: Flowery, funky, acidic, and wild: Aroma hints at an assortment of cherries, vinegar, yeast, orange/lemon zest, citrus apple, vanilla

T: Sour black cherries and they’re delicious too. Nonetheless, notes of lemon, orange, grapefruit, vinegar, oak, and yeast are a bit funky, acidic, and tasty

M: Mediocre-ordinary carbonation with an oily light body

O: A Pleasing and enjoyable sour where the sourness, cherries, and sour cherries are all very much prevalent and are all very excellent
