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.

375 ml bottle 2008 edition sampled in 2016. Almost clear, deep red body with a small, bubbled pink head. Aroma is a bit weak, but feels pure and nice, dominated by cherry, some almond and the background, acidic berries and moderate farmhouse. Flavor is sour sherry, hint of almond, discrete vinegar, light farmhouse and a feeling of sweet berries by the far end of the aftertaste, that’s mainly rather tart and dry. Fine balanced body and a fine balanced flavor all over. As always I tend to prefer my Kriek a bit stored to reduce some of the cherry flavor, I sure enjoy the cherry flavor distinct, but don’t want it to overtake too much of the lambic. This one works very well for me without beeing a sensation. .

From bottle at Vill & Syrlig 2015. Dark ruby body with a small pink head. Aroma is a cherry bomb with leather and barnyard, taste is sour, cherries, oak and funk with a lively zesty palate. Lactic finish with a heavy cherry dose. Quite a nice one!

arkanu (50) - Iasi, ROMANIA - MAY 17, 2016
2011 edition. Impressive dark red color with huge strawberry pink head that will stay for so long. Sour cherries, slight hints of alcohol and notes of oak barrel in the nose. Taste is sour, full of cherries, hints of aromatic vinegar and dark red wine. Intense carbonation, alcohol is totally hidden in the taste, but one can easily feel the woody notes that give this drink a lot of character. Very good beer, just as expected. Dry finish, makes you crave for more...too bad it’s the only bottle I have :)

Franckg (1036) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
Récolte 2014, embouteillée le 13/05/2015, bue après 1 an. Robe rouge vin légèrement trouble avec de minuscules particules au fond du verre surmonté d’un beau col de mousse rosé à l’apparence de lait frappé. Arômes de cerises juteuses, levures, notes boisées, légère acidité avec un côté vineux. En bouche, mélange de cerises et de jeunes lambics. Ces derniers prennent un peu plus de place. L’acidité est bien contrôlé, goût de bois mouillé, pain, foin. La finale présente du vinaigre balsamique ainsi que des tanins de cerises. Les saveurs sont brèves et sensation de sécheresse au palais. Texture onctueuse et corps moyen malgré l’acidité du liquide. Très bonne kriek.

Muggus69 (2023) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2016
375mL corked & caged bottle from Slowbeer. 2013 vintage Pours out a big fluffy pink head, drops away to an effervescent ring atop a deep magenta body. Reasonably intense nose - vinous cherries & red fruits, old oak, hard cheese, acetic vinegar, hay & barnyardy notes. Lively carbonation, tannic with grippy acidity, long finish yet light bodied - don’t realise its strength at all! Red wine vinegar notes on the body - sour cherries, plum skins, cranberry, dank wood & cellar, barnyard & natural yoghurt. Drawn out finish, bracing acidity. Serious intensity on this one, actually gets better with warmth - fleshier fruits, somehow sweeter and more luscious - very good!

Hazy rubin color, with a nice pink/purple head, disappearing. Aroma is of cherries, wood, must, cellar. Taste is fruity, lactic acid, with a dry finish. Tartness is perfectly balanced, very enjoyable.
