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.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Dark red pour with nice cherry aroma. Seems real thick and cherry syrup. Lacked some of the dryness and base sourness from lambic I am used to. Still good but not great.

ciocanelu (349) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 15, 2015
2012 vintage. Dark burgundy color with pink head that goes away completely after a while. Aroma is not very intense, with an underlying sweetness, caramel notes and dark cherries. Taste starts funky and fruity, quite balanced between sweet and sour. Aftertaste has a complex caramel and barnyard note. You can definitely tell that it’s an aged lambic. Body is light to medium and carbonation is in the medium range too. I think it would be a good choice for a beginners lambic because of the sweet/sour balance.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle at Hiranoya. Deep cherry smell, bit nutty. Taste is cherry, light sourness and marzipan. Very fruity. Seems I don’t taste sour anymore. Good stuff

after4ever (6925) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2015
375, 2007, corked and baled, opened 2015. Pours a deep opaque burgundy with bright pink edges. Pink fizzy cream on top. Bright tart pie cherry nose, showing bits of penetrating wood, bracing acidity, and soft vinegary sweetness. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Beautiful blend of piercing pie cherry tartness, lactic bite, wood, and vinegary balm on the mid-palate. Long tangy tart finish. Lovely beer.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Dark Cherry red. Smells like horsey cherry yogurt. Dry, medium acid, very low bitterness. Funky cherry yogurt. Very un-beery. As compared to the version without cherries, this is smoother. The fruit really rounds it out. Super delicious.

anstei (515) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle at Erzbierschof Zurich. Dark clear ruby with a beautiful foam. Slightly funky aroma, but already lots of cherries. Mouthfeel is dominated by the bubbly champagne-like carbonization, which takes away almost a bit too much of the flavour. Lots of cherries while swallowing. Not as balanced as it could be, but still an incredible brew.

Shag (2723) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Ruby red with a reddish beige head. Aroma is a huge whack of cherries. The flavor is slightly sour but mostly sweet. Some sour apples in the finish. Overall awesome.

SlackerMads (2305) - DENMARK - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle. 2011 vintage, I think the label said. Hazy dark read with a large pink head. Nose has cherries, but also a good share of funky notes; barnyard, leather, oak. Flavour is more all out on cherries, some almond and marzipan, light oak and barnyard behind it. Medium body, soft and fluffy carbonation, mild sweet and sour. Drinks below the abv.
