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.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Pours a nice deep ruby red. A nice aromatic tart cherry nose with a good kick of earth barnyard funk. Nice tart cherry and green apple on the palate that finishes with a nice earthy punch.

Moravius (1211) - Beijing, CHINA - MAR 26, 2017
Flasche (75 cl, MHD: 06/16). - Dunkles Kirschrot, rosafarbener Schaum. - In der Nase vornehme, herbe Gueuze und dezente Sauerkirsche. - Im Antrunk zunchst harsche Gueuze-Aromen mit den typischen muffig-holzigen Noten. Darunter natrlich fruchtige Sauerkirsche, bittere Zitronenschale und holzige Herbe. Prickelnd rezent, enorm sauer, adstringierend und dadurch sehr schlank. Im Abgang viel Kork bzw. Holz. - Krftig sauer und herb aber komplex und vielschichtig, nur zuletzt etwas arg holzig.

750ml bottle @ Alexs. Pours a nice rich red colour with a tiny white head. Nose is a mild sour funk with cherries. Flavour is definitely cherries, with something not quite right. Perhaps flavours influenced by the cork? wood? something just different.

Sergeys birthday party; vintage 2015, exp 05/02/20
Deep burgundy color, small frothy pink head. Aroma and flavor are characterized by a strange cork character, then some cherries; the mouthfeel is very dry; the flavor is a bit woody and astringent, there is acidity but no real Lambic quality.

750ml bottle from West Coast LS Kerrisdale at Alexs in honor of my birthday and CPA PREP finish. Vintage 2015. Pours a red color with a rose head. Aroma is woody, corky and cherries, somewhat artificial. Same taste with those artificial notes. Just not bad.

sjogro (3461) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2017
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontanais. Murky brown red with thin white head. Sweet and sour cherries, rhubarb, light metallic/woody. Over moderate sour and moderate bitter. Medium body, minerallike texture. Soft fizzy carbonation. Bit more watery in the aroma than the Cantillon cuvee moeder lambic but still a good crisp tartness that is very lovely.
