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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 Dark bit cloudy red with brown hues and a light pink frothy head. On the nose aromas of cherry, earthy, woody, red grapes, black currant, almonds/marzipan hints of brett develops. Light fruity sweet with a well balanced acidity/sourness and a hint of bitterness with subtle notes of amaretto and balsamico. Medium fruity body; thin, bit lively and sticky texture and a long finish. Nice lasting aftertaste of cherry.

tmrmwel (1201) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle, vintage 2011, enjoyed January 2015. Pours clear dark red, with a big, but quickly receding, pink creamy head. Nice wooden aroma, with red wine barrels, leather and lots of nice cherries and forest berries, as well as farmhouse funk and lactic acid. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is musty and tart rather than sour, with fruits, grapes and tannins, as well as some funky wood and farmyard through the finish.

tdtm82 (1010) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottled; Ale House Chelmsford! I feel harsh with the appearance as there is not much concentration on that its all about taste and taste is HUGE. Palate is super-clean. A slight puckering and acid levels but still really incredibly tasty .This vintage is 2011. The cherries are awesome. The barnyard texture is sublime, SO MUCH DAMN FUNK. Its a JBs record in a glass!!!! WOWZER! Utterly excellent. Drinkability is very high too! A touch rough on the palate but generally speaking this is world-class and I love my local for stocking it! BOOOOOOOOOOOM!
