COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kriek Mariage Parfait is an Old Style Kriek of exceptional excellence. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a strong Lambic of spontaneous fermentation and aged on 6,200 litre oak foudres (large wooden casks) for 5 to 6 months. Kriek Mariage Parfait is naturally clarified and referments in the bottle. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavours, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Pour slowly in a flute glass without disturbing the yeast sediment in the bottle and enjoy this epitome of traditional Lambic brewing.

Bottle, 2011. Pours ruby red, large fizzy pink head that dissipates pretty quickly to a healthy ring and decent lacing. Aroma is funky cherries. Flavor is light tart, medium funk, a bit of cheesiness, sweatsocks and horseblanket along with tart cherry and oak tannin. Lightish body, high carbonation, prickly. Quite a nice one.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Maakun for the bottle. 2013 bottle. Deep red with nice big pinkish head. The aroma has lots of funk and fruity yogurt. The flavor has lovely funkiness, sourish with notes of fruity yogurt, raspberry, vinegar and white wine. Medium-bodied. Great stuff.

Belgianloner (12) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
2014 Vintage. AROMA: Heavy on the Brett. A bit dank and musty though with a very nice hit of fresh cherries. APPEARANCE: Large white/pink fluffy head dissapates to a half inch thick and long lasting one.Lovely clean translucent deep red.A nice deep dark colour in darker light which shows off a light but glowing hue. TASTE: Natural, sour, Bretty, fresh.As good as one could wish for. Just a touch of oak. PALATE: Longlasting, cloying, quenching,. Pretty special stuff. OVERALL: One of the best Krieks I personally know of. When you think of what a good Kriek should be, this is it. Sour, very fruity etc etc.
