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.

Tognetta (534) - 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.

Swaroga (1864) - 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.

TET (2343) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Beautiful beer, a dark red colour, a head is smaal and pink. Aroma has cherries, raspberries, some sourness and also cherry stones. Taste is more sour than aroma, sour cherries, cherry stones, white vine vinegar. Medium bodied, slightly sticky. Good-looking and good aroma, otherwise quite simple and sour cherry.

NordicV (1576) - 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.
