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.

Bottled once

Looks like cherry 7-up. Clear, no carb except a few loose bubbles at the bottom. Smells primarily of oak, sour cherries, some raw wood, a little tea and some sour character. Tart, cherries (bing with a little pie cherry), oak, slight sweet character in the background, some earthy character I'm having difficulty articulating. Fuck, this is good. Thin with low, but prickly carb and a dry finish. I'm sad to have had this just because more would be hard to get.
