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.

My favorite sour from The Bruery is Sour In The Rye; until I had this fresh. I have had many The Bruery fruit forward sours, and I waited too long; so I learned my lesson. I had this one right away. Loved it. Sour blonde with cherries. Delicious. I am so happy that I have two more bottles to enjoy. Keep on with the good work

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.

O: Maybe the most drinkable wild ale I've ever had.
