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.

Nische (1508) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
Hazy red color, with a little pink head. Smell is tart cherries, wood, earth, acetic. Taste is very tart, sourish and oaky. Sharp acidity and dry mouthfeel.

JorgeLee (1572) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
On tap in Moeder Lambic. Deep pinky brown with an off-white pink head. Good sour character, maybe not as mouth puckering as some, woody, fruit adds something but would like more cherry definition. That sounds harsh - it’s tasty stuff!

ippopotamo36 (1081) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 4, 2015
In Ghent-Belgium, 0,75 bottle at Backdoor pub with markoijelena. Vivid and cloudy reddish pink, minimal pinkish head which lowers super fast. Nose: subtle cellar notes, jasmine flowers. Mouth: not that complex but fairly good. Mild red fruits, medium tart overall palate, decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

King_Alex_II (917) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Ruby color with little foam. There is nearly no smell (I have a very limited sense of smell). The cherry taste is decent but present and moderately sour. The aftertaste is a bit regular. Still what criticism could one have, when you have a kriek in front of you.

dodskenta (125) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
75cl bottle shared. Pours redish with a film och pink head. Aromas of ripe and unripe cherries, tart, green apples. Flavour is sour with notes of red fruits, cherries and lemons. Not getting much funkiness at all which is a bit of a dissapointment. Great sour nontheless.

SinH4 (1601) - Garching, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at Moeder Lambic. Red color with small pink head. Tart fruitiness, intense sour cherries. Taste is intensely fruity and sour, stone fruits, acidity, but perfectly balanced. Just the right amount of carbonation. A superb Kriek!
