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.

ClubGonzo (3924) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2011
Bottle. Appears in the form of a deep cherry red body with a big, though quickly disappearing, pink head. Aroma is tart barnyard funk with cherry tones, citric hints and faint hints of wood and yeast. Nice. Taste is cherries up front, then tart barn-like funkiness soon fading into some slightly unpleasant metallic notes. Wood and citrus in the finish. An OK kriek which could have been great with some extra touches and devoid of metal. Still pretty good, all in all.

hirigalzkar (2245) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2011
Bottle. A well made beer. Not very sour nor the most complex kriek. All though well balanced and highly drinkable. Sweet cherries at first, and then the earthiness comes through in the aftertaste.

From bottle @Brouwerij Frank Boon, Lembeek. Big airy pink head. Body is unclear red/ruby. Rich cherry aroma, with a fine dryness and some metal notes. Very flavorfull. Natural, juicy cherries. A light sour undertone, notes of wood, almonds and earth. More than medium full. Juicy texture. Dryish cherry finish with a pleasant acidity. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 375 ml bottle from Systembolaget. 2008 vintage. Dark red/pink, hazy liquid with small pink head. Looks like a kriek should. Smells sour with notes of cherries, barnyard, funk, oak, leather. Nice. Taste is very dry with medium sourness/tartness. Balanced sourness, not to much and not too little. Lots of cherries. Light to medium bodied with nice carbonation and long lingering finish. Nice one, absolutely.

Pours hazy ruby, almost purple, with a thin head. Huge fruity aroma with lots of sour cherries. Taste is sour but very well balanced, dry and tart with lots of cherry flavor, along with some oak and a light funkiness. Delicious.

SirLimpsalot (2067) - SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2011
som väntat hade den mycket trevliga ektoner i doften. Smaken full av körsbär och svarta vinbär, lagom syrlighet och en fin balans. Kan dricka många sådana i år.
