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.

Tmoney99 (11678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2012
Corked Bottle. Poured a clear ruby color with an average frothy reddish head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour fruit yeasty aroma. Medium body with a fizzy texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet & sour flavor with a medium Sor & sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

dmac (4538) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2012
375ml cork and caged bottle from Cranbury Buy-Rite. Poured a deep burgundy body under an average z=sized frothy pink head that settles to a quarter inch thick and just lasts and lasts. The aroma is greatly funked up with a lot of sourness up front, cherry, ban aid, medicinal and sour at the same time. Very full body with strong stingy carbonation and an almost chewy feel about it. The flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma. Notes of cherry pie, sour candy, funk, graham cracker crusts and lingering sour cherry. This one gets better with every sip.

Bottle at Monk’s. Pours a cloudy neon red with a soft pink head. Some lacing. Sour cherry up front. Fuller cherry flavor as it warms. Fizzy and acidic on the tongue. Heavier body than expected. Top tier Kriek!

Beersiveknown (3715) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 18, 2012
Deep crimson with rich cherry aroma and plenty of brett too. Thick and fruity body with a good level of tartness. Dangerously drinkable for its ABV. Lovely
