Sans Pagaie is our take on the Belgian-style kriek, which is a sour blonde ale aged in barrels with cherries. Sans Pagaie translates from French to “without a paddle” (see what we did there? Kriek/”without a bottle”….. 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.
