COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kriek de Rank is real Belgian sour ale fermented with cherries and then blended with real lambic. It is unfiltered and unpasterized. The de Rank brewery was founded by two good friends; Nino Bacelle & Guido Devose. To them, brewing is a weekend hobby, not an occupation. For a few hours every week they make small batches of what many consider the best specialty beers. Their beers are robust and flavorful. They use the best Hallertau and brewer’s Gold varieties of hops.

NordicV (1934) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2015
Körsbärsröd färg med rosarött skum. Kraftig doft av sura körsbär. I bakgrunden finns en aning jordighet och funkighet. Den är torr och syrligheten är mycket mer fruktig än vinäger. Balanserad.

milo91hd (200) - Lecce, ITALY - OCT 21, 2015
Bottiglia 75. Colore rosso rubino con una schiuma finissima che sparisce quasi subito, aroma di ciliegie, legno e cantina, al palato è abbastanza aspra e il lambic si fa sentire abbastanza rispetto alla ciliegia, il finale secco invita subito ad un altro sorso. Ottima

patricks110 (2410) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
Delectable. Pours a bright ruby red with a pinkish white head. The nose is bright and fruity with tons of cherry and acetic notes that culminate in a floral, funky nose. A bit sweet up front but it doesnt verge on syrupy with a light malt base, crisp and refreshing profile. Bitterness is moderate with ligth floral hop notes. Funky and estery with a light tart sour note. Very well done.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours a blood red, initial bubbly cap that disappears. Aroma of cherry pit, cherry skin, and faint jam, good funky yeast backbone. Taste is sweet and tart. Palate is very sticky, medium-high effervescent, and lasting medium-dry finish. Lovely.
