COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sans Pagaie is our take on the Belgian-style kriek, which is a traditional, sour blonde ale aged in barrels with cherries. The word "kriek" actually translates to "cherry" in the Flemish language. Sans Pagaie, our clever monicker for this beer, translates from French to "without a paddle" (see what we did there? Kriek/"without a paddle"..... hello, anyone out there?). The base beer has a subtle funk, which 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 homemade cheesecake.
2015 vintage uses Balaton and Montmorency sour cherries.

davidezdonz (611) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 23, 2017
A 750ml bottle, 2017 vintage. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass. It was a nice cloudy ruby red colour with a just over one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving sparse to no lacing. Aromas were tart, cherry, oak and vanilla. Tastes like the aroma, sour, tart, cherry, oak and vanilla. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, nice, refreshing acidity with great aromas and taste.

bhensonb (15859) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Capped 750 shared by Marcus. Pours translucent light cherry with a slight off-white head. Aroma of medium sour cherry. Med body. Flavor is moderately sour, and the cherry is very reminiscent of what comes in pie filling cans. Cherry comes across as rather fresh, despite the sour. Nice drink.

Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Sample from 2015 bottle at the DBLDP on 09/03/2017. The beer is a clear pinkish-red color with a thin pinkish-white head that burns away steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of tart cherry, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of sour cherry, oak, yeast and doughy malt. The finish is moderately tart with a cherry aftertaste. Good beer all around.
