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 brewers Gold varieties of hops.

bartlebier (3728) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2017
Annual 75cl vintages since 2012-13 and draught @Ganzerik, Gent Feb 2017. - Pink-mauvish pour with off-pinkish head. Musty almond cherry pit and sharp lime lacto in aroma. Flavour and bonedry mouthfeel point toward an oldschool lacto Berliner Weisse steeped with cherry&pips - if it werent for that deep adn deeply Belgian musty, bretty underbelly. Cherry flesh and juice all drained gnawed out of vital juices by what must be a zombie monster of a brett/lacto culture. Refreshing, distinct, headstrong for an off-Pajottenland kriek.

Tap at Moeder Fontaines. Clean lactic character blends well with tha standard natural kriek feeling. Finishes slightly tart. Balanced, dry, easy drinking. Great.

tomer (3294) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 30, 2016
Draught at Moeder Lambic, extremly bubbly foamy head, light cloudy red color with pinkish taints, aroma of cooked cherries and sweet spices with hints of sweat and stinky cheese, flavor of cooked cherries and sweat spices, fels like a cherry cake, piercing yet mellow sourness, not too heavy. Really nice and enjoyable.
