Cuvée de Ranke (ABV 7.0%) from De Ranke Brewery is a blend of roughly 70% sour ale brewed with top fermenting Rodenbach yeast and 30% aged Giardin lambic, and is the base for their Kriek de Ranke.

Unfiltered and unpasteurized, it pours hazy copper gold with a small yellowish head. The aroma is fruity, tart, and bracing, with notes of unripe white grapes, leather, oak, and flowery hops.

Full-bodied on the palate, with medium carbonation, it tastes both sour and hoppy, combining notes of grapefruit, green apple, and grass with earthy notes of leather, oak, and mineral. Rustic, refreshing, and well-balanced, it boasts a rating of 99 (out of 100). 25.4 oz capped bottle with paper wrapper.

The De Ranke Brewery was founded in 1996 by good friends Nino Bacelle and Guido Devos, hobby brewers who turned a part-time obsession into a successful commercial venture.

At first brewing only on weekends using the equipment and facilities of an existing craft brewery, De Ranke soon established a reputation for producing robust and flavorful ales with a massive hops profile; hops, in their philosophy, are the single most important ingredient in any ale. They embraced traditional brewing methods (without eschewing helpful new technologies) and used only the freshest natural ingredients like real hop flowers instead of cheap hop extracts like many of their larger more commercially driven counterparts.

As a result, De Ranke brews grew steadily in popularity and demand; in the late 2000s, De Ranke was able to relocate to its own brewery in Dottignies in the Hainaut province of Belgium.

Today, De Ranke Brewery exports award winning hop-centric ales to nine different countries including the United States, India, France and Japan.
