As I’ve said before, I hate Belgian beer. Which is weird given that it’s considered by many to be the best beer in the world. But there’s something about the open fermentation style that makes me physically ill.
But I do love a Kriek, and more generally a lambic. So on my annual pilgrimage to Brussels I always try to have a lambic that I have not tried before.
The De Ranke Kriek is tart and crisp like a fresh cherry. As it should be. And it’s one I haven’t had before.
On my usual scale of forty bottles of RingBoRee, this scores a 31.
Also I wish I’d gotten the smaller bottle so I could have tried something else rather than filling up on this.
