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.

Mar 2013 bottle, opened Sep 2014

A - Seltzer-like fizzy white head builds and dies within seconds. Nectarine nectar colored body.

S - Skull tingling sour with an undercurrent of tannins, lemon pith, canned tuna in water, and soft barn notes.

T - Stings so good. Acidic lemons, black cherry jello powder, orange zest, roasted carrots. Backdrop of tinny canned cherries.

M - Light frame with a smooth body. Puckeringly sour finish.

O - Definitely in the upper tier of the most sour beers I've ever had.
