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.

Marheb (2302) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Liquide d’une fluorescence impressionnante, belle mousse rosé ambitieuse, un nez autant sauvage qu’acidulé avec une tonne de cerises, pas beaucoup de sucre en perspective. En bouche c’est une acidité tranchante qui nous accueille dans un déluge de cerises surette, une alléchante verdure termine l’escapade. Excellente buvabilité.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Big bottle. Pours pink, not much head. Nose is sour cherry, wood, sweaty old hops, lemony sourness. Flavour is a straightforward sourness with nice amount of cherry and wood in the background, medium sour finish. Quite dry. Very nice. The finished product is less complex than expected considering the components.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2013
Tap på Moeder Lambic. Intensiv körsbär. Påminner om Intense Red. Snudd på syntetiska körsbär, men ändå inte. Det är de som gör den så bra. Klar och rubinröd

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle 0.75l from Marlou Zonhoven. Pours a clear deep red with no foam. Aroma is some sour cherries. Nothing else. Taste is tart, sour, full of cherries. A slight sweetness in the end makes this very well balanced. Refreshing, tasty, really good.
