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.

On tap at Barcade in Phily for Beer Week

Appearance: A really unique and cloudy pink color. Almost no head and no lacing.

Smell: Subtle, but still very funky and sour. Mostly cherry.

Taste: My friend Patrick was drinking a Supplication, and this was more mouth-puckering. Very sour, with lots of vinegar, tons of sour cherry, and some oak and vanilla. The sourness almost over-powers the different tasting notes.

Mouthfeel: Very sour, with a very long finish. Mouth puckering and delicious.

Overall: An amazing Belgian sour. Lots going on, but all tied together by extremely sour cherry notes. Would definitely buy again. Very good.

Serving type: on-tap
