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 brewers Gold varieties of hops.

On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a dark ruby with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong cherry skin, wood, light funk. Thin mouth, tart cherry, strong funk, light, very good.

jesperhammer (4291) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
12-SEP-2015, draft @Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, with Ulklbben. Red and hazy with a pink, lasting head. Cherry, sour but not a lot. Balanced by the fruit sweetness. By far the most balanced Kriek I have had. This is really fantastic. I want to try this from bottle to see if that is the same.

AleRider78 (717) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2015
Shared a bottle with Metalchopz at Pub Italia. Pours very little head. No lacing. Has a reddish appearance, kind of like kool aid. Aromas are quite yeasty and sour. Flavours are very sour right away, strong tarty and yeasty notes. Good mouthfeel. Average retention. Lively carbonation.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - AUG 24, 2015
Alla spina. Aroma intenso e molto caratterizzato dalla ciliegia che si sposa alla perfezione con sentori di cuoio, terroso, cereale. Al palato lacidit intensa e bilancia la dolcezza data dalla frutta. Molto bilanciata ed intensa nei suoi aromi.

TET (2731) - 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.

Maakun (4222) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2015
75cl bottle shared at home. Clear bright ruby colored with short lasting bubbly pink head. Cherries, red berries, dough, raw green vegetables, light yeast, sour milk, raw almonds, berry pits, light funk and soft spices. Light sour with long lasting almond and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with low sparkly carbonation. Pretty nice beer, but light on the fruits maybe but very balanced and drinkable.
