“Hop Harvest 2012”

Wet Hopped Golden Ale
A hazy, golden ale at 6% alcohol, this once a year edition from Brouwerij De Ranke has a big white foamy head with a complex aroma of fresh hops, hay, fruit and De Ranke's complex yeast. There is plenty of malt character to back up the assertive hopping, and a pithy, dry bitter finish.

We hope you enjoy it, while it lasts!

“Noir De Dottignies”

Belgian Dark Strong Ale
The heaviest ale from De Ranke with a very rich taste, coming from the six different kinds of malt they use. These malts also give it that rich, dark, nearly black colour. The royal doses of Challenger and Saaz hops bring the typical balance between sweet and bitter.

9% Alc/Vol

“Pere Noel”

Belgian Winter Ale
Père Noël is a Christmas ale, though very different from any other Christmas ales you might know. While most Christmas ales are rich & sweet, this one is amber-coloured, 7% vol. Alc. strong and tastes quite bitter. The complex taste is completed with the addition of licorice. In the recipe we can also find pale malt, Munich malt, Caramel malt, Brewers Gold hops and Hallertau hops.

“Saison De Dottignies 750ml”

Traditional Belgian Saison
Saison de Dottignies is named for the town in which the De Ranke ales are brewed. This beer is a great example of a dry, yet full tasting Saison with plenty of fruity yeast character. The snappy finish from the hops serve as a terrific palate cleanser, which makes a for excellent food pairings.

“XX Bitter”

Hoppy Belgian Ale
XX Bitter is a blond, bitter ale containing 6.2% vol. Alc. It’s famous for it’s very bitter and strong flavour. XX is made with pale pilsner malt and loads of Brewers Gold and Hallertau hop flowers. A perfect combination that has been nationally and internationally praised. This ale has been a real trendsetter for the current comeback of bitter ales in Belgium.

“Kriek De Ranke”

Flemish Style Blend, with Cherries
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 redbrown 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.

Available only in 750ml bottles.

“Cuvee De Ranke”

Flemish Style Blended Ale
Cuvee de Ranke 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 very well.

“Guldenberg”

Belgian Tripel
Guldenberg is a tripel-style abbey ale containing 8.5% vol. Alc. It's colour is blond and it’s made of pale malt with the addition of candy sugar. The bitterness comes from the Hallertau hops used as bittering and aroma hops. On top of that dry-hopping is employed with the same hops which give the ale its unique flavour and aroma and its perfect balance between sweet and bitter. The name came from the former Guldenberg Abbey in Wevelgem, the village of birth of Nino, one of the brewers. According to data in Flandria Illustrata ale was brewed here in the past.
