in stock again we have some rare ales from Brouwerij De Ranke.

De Ranke Saison De Dottignies: 96 points at RateBeer

This is classic De Ranke – well-hopped, floral and dry – so in some ways this beer is no revelation. But it’s lighter and brighter than the XX Bitter, refreshing as a saison ought to be, and at 5.5% strength ultimately very useful.

Kriek De Ranke: 99 points at RateBeer

Kriek De Ranke is a 7% vol. Alc. Kriek that’s unique because the composition is based on two different styles of sour ales. Being the red-brown style from the Roeselare / Kortrijk / Oudenaarde-region and the Lambic style from the Pajottenland region, close to Brussels. We produce and acidify the red-brown ale ourselves, after which we add 25% sour cherries. These cherries stay in the ale for 6 months. Once fermented, the cherries come out and we add Lambic from Brewery Girardin. After this the ale matures for a while before being ready to drink. It’s an explicit thirst quencher, that contains nearly no sugar.

Kriek De Ranke: 99 points at RateBeer

Cuvee is an ale of mixed origin like many Belgian breweries used to make. The production process is nearly the same as for the Kriek, the difference being that no cherries are added. It’s a naturally acidified ale in which we try to reach the perfect balance between sweet and sour. This amber-coloured ale contains 7% vol. Alc. and can age really nice.
