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.

A decent cherry sour beer with lambic added. Has that bitter aftertaste that I'm not crazy about. Pours a deep red with very little head. Doesn't have the sweetness you'd expect from something blended with lambic ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(On draught @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 27 2015) Pours hazy deep pink-red with moderate pale pink head and lace. Aroma sweet cherry pie filling with a tart edge, metallic notes, very little acidity. The palate is mildly sweet and mildly tart cherry flesh with a light lactic yoghurt acidity. Metallic astringency prominent from middle through finish. Lingering soft cherry flesh and lacto in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied with average effervescent carb, easy drinking. Not particularly exciting to me, however.

Swaroga (1758) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
Slightly hazy color with a medium, rose head. Fresh aroma of cherries, apples, citron and tart. There is also a deep barnyard funky aroma to it aswell. Beer is mederatly acid with creamy mouthfeel. It has a dry tart finish like any lambic but has a ale body which plays well together. Easy to drink and hind the alcohol well...like any acid beer is. A very good sour ale.

northropfrye (2775) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 13, 2015
On ta at MoederLambic brussels . Red body pink head . Attractive . More sour than some sweeter fruity kriek and that is something I appreciate . Not a wussified kriek. Great beer.

yourilevesque (396) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
Rouge pourpre trouble, la bière présente une tête rosée lourde et molle qui coule le long de mon verre sans y laisser de trace. Triste à vois. Mon verre est beaucoup trop propre. Le nez est mi griotte - mi sirop - mi levures. Je ne sais pas trop où j’en suis en fait mais une chose est cependant certaine :les vapeurs sont plus sucrées qu’acides. Saveurs aigres et douces où les cerises et la levures se font libre concurrence. Courte, mi sèche, corps moyen, cette bière est faite pour être dégustée en terrasse.

SaintMatty (5897) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2015
750ml Bottle - Red in colour with a pinky white head. Cherries, strawberrries, wood and some musty notes in the aroma. Tangy, fruity and sharp taste with cherries dominating proceedings, although notes of damp wood, almonds and strawberries can also be detected.

Andy_ (998) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2015
750 ml bottle
Ruby reddish clear beer with pink head. Aroma has barnyard, saddle leather, lemon juice and cherry. Flavor has lemon juice and cherry. Palate is quite thin with quite strong carbonation and quite strong sourness. Finish has sourness and mild bitterness. Aftertaste has cherry and lemon juice. Very strong sourness. Has stronger gueuzeish lambic elements than most krieks I’ve had.

Tognetta (336) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAY 24, 2015
Cor de vinho, vermelho bem escuro. Espuma rala, de difícil formação, não persiste no copo. Aroma intenso de cereja, azedume médio, dulçor idem. Paladar trás ainda mais o dulçor de cereja e frutas vermelhas, azedume leve. Corpo e carbonação médios. Aftertaste ainda mais característico de morangos e cerejas. Uma sour ainda melhor que a Cuvée, delicada, ótima representante do estilo.
