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.

rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods, poured into tumbler. Poured a hazy red bordering on pink with an effervescent pink head. Aroma is sour with funk, cherries, and a tiny bit of citrus. Flavor is similar, but with a mitigating sweetness that keeps the sourness from becoming too much to handle.

mikske79 (1381) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - APR 3, 2016
Zowel de geur, de kleur als de smaak zijn zoals een kriek moet zijn, niets meer. Niet slecht, zeker niet, maar ook niets uitzonderlijk.

alteregoo (666) - POLAND - MAR 29, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Piana znikoma, sycząca, szybko opada do zera. Barwa czerwono różowa, mętna. Aromat zdominowany przez kwaśne wiśnie, w tle czerwone wino, taniny w typie starej beczki. Smak półkwaśny, generalnie powtórka z aromatów - mocno owocowy kriek z zaznaczoną pestkową goryczką, lekko rozgrzewającym, przyjemnym alkoholem, z długimi posmakami zbutwiałego drewna i wytrawnego wina wiśniowego. Nagazowanie średnie, lekkie, gładkie i pijalne w odbiorze.
