Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

750mL split. Thanks!

A: Ruby grapefruit with lively carbonation swarming the glass. Zero head.

N: Loads of cherries and ample oak. Some grapefruit, lemon and fresh leather. A little funk and some zesty pepper.

T: Oak, high levels of sourness and some chery. Strappings of leather. Grapefruit juice and lemon zest. If you wanted to point to the normal taste of a Bruery sour, this is it. Could use more fruit to differentiate.

M: Very lively. Light mouthfeel in keeping with the style.

O: A good beer that needs more fruit to distinguish itself.

2014 Preservation Society bottle.

A - Cloudy pinkish orange, super effervescent (it was a gusher). No head or lacing, fair enough for the style.

S - You can smell the tartness. Assertive notes of sour cherry and background of light brett funk.

T - Extremely sour. Mouth puckering, forehead sweating, eye twitching sour. Big cherry notes, hints of cherry pie brett notes. Hard to discern much else.

M - Medium body, slightly sticky.

O - Great AWA, not as subtle and nuanced as excellent kriek, too heavy handed in the tartness. Still delicious and a treat.
