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.

On tap, al pub "Wild Rover" di Manzolino, Castelfranco Emilia (MO), Italia. Acida fermentata con le ciliegie..si avverte subito il carattere non filtrato..testa frizzantina bel colore dall amaranto al rosato corpo medio..olfatto di ciliegia e forse un po di "fieno balsamico" alla geuze.. bilanciamento perfetto.. nota acida controllata alla perfezione nella evanescenza dell iniziale aroma dolce.avverto anche nota citrica gradevole per legare frutta e alcool...ottima secchezza della ciliegia, comunque fruttatissima fresca e molto accessibile nonostante la struttura importante. Ottima.

tap at Moeder Lambic - Pours hazy red with a small head and a tart cherry aroma. It has a delicious tart cherry flavor with enough sweetness to keep it from being too pucker inducing. Excellent kriek.

Hopverdju (210) - BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2016
Rozig – rode kleur met zeer dunne witte schuimkraag die vlug weg is. Geur: zurig, krieken vlees, wat amandel van de pitten. Smaak: droog zurig. Afdronk: blijft niet zolang hangen, droog. Geef mij maar de Kriek i.p.v. de Cuvée! Lekker droog zurig met een goeie krieken geur.

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.
