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.

750ml bottle from the Bierkoning - not badly priced. Pours a beautiful pomegranate red, slightly opaque. Looks really nice. The aroma is classic Geuze, not special but good. The flavor is really nice. It is not sweetened but also not overly sour. Very well balanced plenty of fruit. I think this is going to be one of my favorite krieks.

Appearance is cloudy, red with little foam. Very sour and sweet aroma, enchanting! Palate starts out smooth and ends in nice sourness. Taste is just fantastic! Sour wine or juice, in a good way.
