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.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

750 ml poured into a snifter with a hazy pinkish orange color, reminds me of....oh just a little vomit, giving a thin white head that falls to nothing almost immediately without any type of linger. The nose is sour upfront with light sour cherries, lemony zest and a touch of something sweet in the back. The taste is just dominated by vinegar and an acidic presence that is just off putting. The beer needs more cherries and something else for balance. A thin layer of cherries, oak and lemon work against too much bacteria for sure (lactobasillus?) without any type of structure...now that I've had mother funker, oui oui and now this; I'm starting to gather a typical vinegar presence from the bruery wild stuff that is uninviting and narrow. There is a minimal amount of carbonation and the mouthfeel is medium with a very dry finish. Overall I wanted to like this beer but the truth is, is that's it's a terrible kriek and needs to go on home. A sour, acidic, vinegar, light cherried mess that looks like chunkless vomit. $20 are you fucking serious? I'd rather eat a bag of shit.

Finally got to crack open this offering from the Preservation Series that I signed up with a friend. Poured out of a 750ml bottle into a teku glass. No freshness or bottling date, although the label in the back states that it's best consumed fresh? Huh? Sours SHOULD have a long shelf life, last time I looked.

Pours a delightfully rustic yet slightly murky and ugly shade of pinkish, tomato juice reddish, brown. Very hazy, and not much clarity or shining qualities that I usually admire in the style. There's an initial fizzy, white head, but it eventually dissipates to about a thin ring which soon vanishes altogether. Not too many legs. No lacing at all. Not horrible, but not too pretty.

The aroma is a slight step up, but is not without its bizzarre elements in midst of the good ones. First, the pros: there's an elegant, mellow fruity flavor that melds well with the oak to create a slightly acidic, soured phenolic quality - although where the cherries are, is beyond me. Rather, I get big citrus notes (almost soapy), apricots, grapefruit, and woody, faded sweetened tannins. Then, there's the ugly: tomato puree, cabbage, and basil immediately vanquishes these flavors in a strange manner, although less horrible than you'd imagine. Why is this happening? And seriously, where's the damn cherries?! I admit I am fascinated with the tomatoey notes, but I really am not looking forward to trying it.

Right, the flavor does take things a step up, although not as much as hoped. There's none of the vegetal notes to be found, and instead, there's an initial burst of soured, dried fruits (especially apricots, definitely raspberries - although no cherries), which soon meld with the wood to turn into a highly acidic yet overall creamy finish. Vinegar and vinous qualities soon follow as well, and eventually turn into a lactic acidic complexity that bittered yet slightly saline in nature. Definitely good in terms of texture, although pretty weak in terms of body, which comes off as thinned and grainy as you'd never expected. Not too much restraint in terms of battling the sour yeastiness and woody tannins - disappointing in feel, and perhaps too much of the cherry skins screwed up whatever they were trying to go for here.

This is a poor way to start off the series, and I'm starting to lose faith in this brewery. Not really the worse wild ale I've had, but I've heard these guys can do better than this. It's drinkable, but many factors I mentioned above do not make this wholly memorable. Not a bad way to start off a meal, but could use some serious pruning, especially if The Bruery is supposed to be composed of barrel aging geniuses, and whatnot.

A: Pale pink, syrupy and a bit thin bodied.

S: Yeesh, solventy character that reminds me very much of nail polish remover. Its hard to pinpoint where the lactic acidity ends and the harsh acetic stuff begins, I can imagine that the base beer was better at some point.

T: Taste is nicer than the aroma, but the solventy nature of the nose really ruined this beer for me.

M: Medium syrupy with surprisingly weak carbonation

Reddish-amber pour with a thin fizzy head that retained as a small ringlet, leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Sour aroma, funky and cheesy, essence of tart fruits, lactic, some candy-like sweetness. I like sours just fine, but this one was way over the top. Big sour/tart hit up front, cherry/cranrazz/lemon, Sweet Tarts, lactic and acetic, some leather and cheesy funk in the background, but the sourness and acidity pretty much just overtook everything. Mouthfeel was on the harsh side, this was an almost instant palate wrecker, body was medium, overall came off too green and unbalanced for me. I thank whoever shared this bottle, but I definitely wouldn't pay the [most likely] overblown Bruery mark-up for it.

When blended with the somewhat lack-luster Cpt. Lawrence Barrel Reserve Raspberry and a dash of Rubaeus, it actually turned out pretty good!

750ml brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap and appealing label served into a New Belgium stem-goblet in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are pretty high; historically I haven't liked The Bruery but I've been realizing recently that their stouts and sours seem to be the exceptions to The Bruery's overcharging-for-garbage modus operandi. I'm a big sour fan, so I'm excited for this.

Served a bit warmer than refrigerator cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Not paired with food.

A: Pours a one finger white colour head of fair cream, decent thickness, and above average retention - though the ABV is quite modest. Body colour is a dull muted orange-red. Maybe tangerine to get pretentious. Nontransparent and opaque. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Sourness, bacteria, wild yeast, fermented fruit, fruit skin, light oak. I look for cherries but cannot find them; I just get vague fruit. Then again, me nose is broken. A moderately strong aroma, though it lacks the assertiveness and obvious acidity of most good sours I've had. No alcohol comes through.

T: Bright fruit and fruit skin merged with sourness and a light tart kick. Not sour enough nor tart enough to really satisfy me, but it's a pleasant beginner's sour I suppose. Some pale malts. An oak undertone. The finish has a resurgence of tart sourness accompanied by a luscious malty crispness that I quite fancy. I wish the entire body were as flavorful as the finish. No alcohol is detectable. The fruit is curious; it's not at all cherry - at least not in a kriek sense - but I'd hazard to allege that it's sort of peachy. What cherries were used? Unfortunately, it's worth noting that it's just a bit watery, which really wrecks the build. In spite of that transgression, I'd still call it a mostly balanced beer - albeit a somewhat muted one.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and a bit undercarbonated. Good thickness. Supports the flavours by not intruding, but it adds little to the beer.

Dr: A drinkable beginner's sour, but probably not worth its high pricetag. There are better sours from this brewery at around this price, and I'd see no need to get this one again. Not worth seeking out; its flaws ultimately make it a disappointment. Maybe I was wrong to start being so optimistic about The Bruery.

Poured in to Bruery tulip.

A - Light strawberry red with a big glow throughout. Small film of off white head that was scattered as large bubbles.

S - Sour and tart up front. Lots of oak. Some cherry aromas, but not as much as I expected.

T - A huge sourness up front with some funk and lots of oak. Tart cherry flavour adds a nice layer of complexity without taking over the beer.

M - Light body, moderate carbonation.

Served in a Bruery tulip. Nose has some bright cherry and shows some initial acidity. Flavor is quite tart with cherry and light skin. Light body; needs more carbonation. Sad to say, this is another disappointing Bruery sour after some others (particularly dark base sours) have shown so much promise.

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.

Quick review from written notes.

Bright reddish color, spray of spotty white foam in the glass.
Cherry smell, clean and lactic, slightly sharp.

Slightly artificial with a cherry ludens cough drop aftertaste, sharp and super sour up front with biting acidity. Very spritzy and dry, fully attenuated. The sharpness is a little much and more sour just for sour sake, adding little dimension to the beer itself. This was nice to try, but a little one-dimensional.

Cloudy blonde body with nice white head in the glass. I'm not picking up much from the nose and certainly not cherries. Still no cherries to speak of in this one. It's mouth scorchingly tart/sour. At points it is warhead tart, and other times it is just sour. It's not balanced and it has no fruit in the party. This one is just a misfire for me.

3.63/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Beautiful color, a translucent grapefruit pink with a ring around the glass.

Nose is fruit. Cherries, strawberry, a dash of lemon: these notes are all a bit sugarcoated and a tad artificial. There is also the funk element - which is quite unique, not a very belgian scent, quite unique and not entirely appreciated. All together not entirely balanced but interesting nonetheless. It's like it doesn't quite know what it wants to be, therefore a bit restrained, a bit muddled.

The cherries save this beer from being mediocre. All together a watery beer, but the sweet cherries along with the astringent tart are a combination that is hard to screw up. Quite good.

Watery, a higher ABV is a must for this one. Also could use some more complexity: a dash of vanilla or more personality from the oak.

For a young brewery to produce a sour at this level reveals great potential, I look forward to sampling sours from Rue & co. in a decade or so.

750 mL bottle acquired through the Hoarders Society. Bottled 3/22/13. Served in a Bruery snifter.

Pours a strange, opaque, murky pink peach-like hue, similar to grapefruit juice, with a rapidly fading pale head. Zero retention and no lace.

Smells tart with vinegar, funk, yeast and sour fruit.

Flavors are sour but somehow rounded. Tart cherry, smooth oak, apple cider vinegar, acidic sour lemon, wet hay, funk and a dry yeasty character.

Light to medium body with mildly tingling carbonation. Near puckering finish with sour cherry and oak.

Pretty good stuff. The tart cherry complements and smooths out the sour. Not something I'll hunt for more of but nice enough that II enjoyed this try.

Bottle opened with a hiss and foamed over about 4 oz of beer before I got it into my glass. Pours a hazy amber orange color with a faint pink hue and a huge head that disappeared almost instantly. Smells of sweet malt and sour cherries with enough funk and sour tartness to keep me interested. The tartness pricks the tongue at first sip and never lets go. I get lots of lemon and tart cherry flavor and I swear I'm getting coconut as well. Earthy and fruity tart describe this one fairly well. The finish is quite dry with a long lingering tartness on the palette. Medium to thin body body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a tart almost salty mouthfeel. This is a nice tart light beverage to drink, but it's not my favorite.

750 ml bottle served in a Deschutes tulip. Thanks to Andrew (nasty31) for sharing.

A: Pours a semi-cloudy grapefuit color with a thin white head forming on the pour. Ite recedes to a thin ring and leaves some small splochtes of lace behind.

S: Oaky with some tart cherries up front. Sour berry with a slight malty sweetness. Light grassy hops on the finish.

T: More sour than tart. Cherry skins with a litt green grape tartness. The finish is malty and sweet.

M: Light bodied with a nicely carbonated body and drying finish.

O: Nice drinkability and it was pretty balanced. Nothing was over powering, but that being said it wasn't anything spectacular either. Better than average, but nothing crazy.

Review #200

Appearance: Pours a murky orange color with hints of red. What little head form upon pouring dissipates instantly to the thinnest of collars around the edge of the glass. Body is extremely hazy, almost to the point of being opaque.

Smell: Big barnyard funk, wet hay, mild cherry aroma, acidic sourness, tart citrus, slightly cheesy.

Taste: Nice acidic sourness right upfront along with lots of sour pie cherries, which was a bit surprising given the somewhat muted cherry presence in the aroma. That's followed by some funk, oak, hay, lemon and lactic acid. Sourness is low to medium.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with lower levels of prickly carbonation. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, almost watery.

Overall: Another good beer from the Bruery. It's a nice homage to the traditional Belgian krieks though doesn't reach the same level as the good ones. Given the it's a brewery only release, I'm glad I got to try it, but I doubt I'll be going out of my way to track it down again.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks Chris for sharing!

(A)- Pours a very cloudy/murky blush red color (looks like grapefruit juice). Some white froth formed.

(S)- A nice clean, albeit dry oaky profile with some crazy fresh berry fruits: strawberry, raspberry, and cherry; very vibrant.

(T)- Again, very clean (no funk). Tons of fresh fruit and a subtle dry oak. Very very subtle acidity.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A nice balance of acidic fruit and oak. A rather subtle sourness, but it is there.

(D)- Another solid wild ale from the Bruery. The sourness is subtle, but such a vibrant combo of fruits and dry oak that I almost did not miss it. Time might help the sourness to round out though.

Poured from 750ml bottle to a tulip. Bottled 4/2012?? So a year and 3 months of age.

A - Clear, brilliant pink/rose' color. Clear head that disappears immediately.

S - Sour cherry, light white vinegar, musty barnyard notes, although slight.

T - Sour cherries and white vinegar are forefront. Lemon juice and a slight white wine character. Slight blue cheese finish (very slight and actually enjoyable). Much less puckering sour than I remember.

M - Light and crisp, although it seems to have lost a little carbonation, I think it works to its benefit. Not watery at all. Nice balance.

O - I like it much better than when I had it fresh. Flavors meld together well. Much less vinegary than I remember. Might be benefiting from some age.

Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead tulip at slightly under cellar temp.

A - Grapefruit color, slightly more red, with a white head that quickly falls apart.

S - Sour cherries, similar to a life saver candy. Some smoothness in the background to mellow the tartness.

T - A sourness that comes through and waters the mouth. Some cherries, lemon, and buttery finish. The finish is the lacking component here.

M - Lighter, crisp, pleasant feel.

O - Decent beer but the appearance and finish really take hits on this one.

On-tap at Reserve Society Party 2012

Pours sort of a pinkish red color with a pink head. The aroma features plenty of cherry, but there does seem to be a mild butter aroma at first. A little bit carbonic (sort of a soda-water note). A bit of vanilla and wood, not quite as tart as I’d like. The flavor has plenty of cherry. A bit on the sweet side, sort of cherry pie-like. Some oak and vanilla are present on the palate as well, maybe a bit of grass. Not much in the way of funk.

750ml bottle poured into a Bruery tulip glass.

This was a beer that I have had a few times since it's release, but was never really impressed by. Having heard some really positive things about how this was aging, I decided to give it a go and see if time has done this beer some favors. The beer pours a light pinkish red color, very clear with a few bubbles rising to the top. A very lively off white head appears momentarily, lots of large loosely packed bubbles, much like a soda, but is gone almost instantly leaving behind no trace of film or lacing. The aroma is pretty nice, heavy on the cherry, mild funk, a good amount of pie spicing and sweetness. It's simple, but to be expected of a Kriek style ale, the Cherry is a bit lighter than I was hoping for, a bit more reminiscent of sweeter canned preserved cherries rather than fresh tart whole cherries. The flavors are almost identical, more cherry than the nose and thankfully it's more tart than sweet. Additionally, there is a decent amount of pie spicing, light vinegar, and a bit of sweet biscuit malt at the finish. The body is nice and light, carbonation is a bit lower than I would have expected giving this a bit of a syrupy feeling.

Verdict: A decent Kriek style Ale from The Bruery, but I'm still not sold on this one. The flavors are almost there, but still come off too artificial and sweet and the syrupy body wasn't doing it for me. I applaud the effort and definitely enjoyed this beer, but it's by no means one of the better sour offerings from The Bruery.

750 mL bottle poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip. Thanks to my Reserve Society trustee JRSD fo getting this out to me.

Sans Pagaie pours more of a deep orange than a true red, with a good bit of haze to it. A couple fingers of white foam crown the beer, showing little head retention and no lacing. The nose is excellent, led by a blend of earthy funk and cherry skins. A solid supporting tart aroma rounds out the picture. The flavor profile has far more acidity than I expected. It really takes over the beer and drowns out the cherries and brett. They're both still there (though definitely the former more than the latter), but this is a very different beer than the nose had suggested. The body is very light,and paired with an expansive, active carbonation. The mouthfeel is champagne-esque. Sans Pagaie is a bit aggressive for a beer that's just out of the gates, especially compared to some classic Belgian krieks. It's definitely not without its charms though.

A slight haze in a salmon body, just a short lived finger of foam fizzes out like a cola leaving no lace

T the cherries tart, some black currents, no sulfur or solvent is an improvement over the nose, vinous notes and wood
