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 bottle brewed in march 2013 into a New Glarus flute glass. about a year old.

pours a very interesting and attractive murky red that i really dig. smell is very acidic with a tad of cherries... taste is lip puckeringly sour with the vinegar and acidic notes. cherries are present but have faded noticeably in a year. as it warmed up it became a tad less acidic. mild body with mild carbonation.

overall a lip puckering sour. i dig those but maybe not for everyone.

Teeters on the line of good and great in my opinion but easily buyable again and very enjoyable to sip.
Pours almost the color if pink grapefruit juice with no head to speak of. Smell has sour cherry, oak and a hint of vanilla. Taste a nice mix of tart and bittersweet but not overpowering with mostly cherry and acidic fruit notes.
