4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dégustée à température de 12,2°C à 14,8°C. Corps grenat à reflets acajou, trouble, couronné d’une mousse rose pâle à reflets violet, très épaisse, crépitante, qui retombe progressivement. Arômes de cerise aigre et de bois. Tranchante et sèche, fruitée et boisée; amertume prononcée qui donne de la longueur; pas sucrée du tout; très bien sur un sorbet cassis pour constituer un beau dessert digestif. Rustique et élégante, assez exigeante.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark red color with a medium, pink head of average retention. Aroma of cherries, some cedar wood, and perhaps a bit of brett. Taste is sweet and sour with obvious cherry predominance, though other tones are featured as well such as malts and pickled cucumbers. A medium body, a slick texture, and a fizzy carbonation. Finish is medium long and does not seem to introduce anything new. Overall, the beer is good, a greatly refreshing brew.

Peccato perchè secondo me non era a temperatura perfetta, però nonostante questa pecca, è davvero meravigliosa, al palato è fantastica...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pickle juice and tons of sour cherry aroma with some sweet fruit accents. Hazy dark red under a thin, pink sheet. Very sour cherry and sweet pilsner malt, with a little pickle juice and bitter fruit pit. Medium body, mouth puckering juicy, high carbonation. Fairly ethanolic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml cork and cage bottle at home in Richmond as ’Boon Kriek Mariage Parfait’, 8%, 2013 vintage BB 2034, so aged 2 years in bottle. Very dark red, pretty much opaque in this light, dense foamy pink head. Aroma is chlorinated swimming pool, cherry stone, strawberry boiled sweet found down the side of an old sofa, cat litter. Simple cherry juice and also musty lambic stuff. Body is a little frothy, low carbonation. Taste is cherry sweets, rhubarb jam, some light lemon, touch of red wine, perfumey notes. Not particularly sour or tart, but obviously has those aspects. Deep rounded fruitiness and, importantly, not too sweet. For the style, drinkability is high. Excellent, as expected.

375 ml bottle I picked up from the Thirsty Quaker a while back. 2014 date on the bottle, best before end of 2033, so I snuck it in with just over a decades and a half to spare. Purple-red color with a creamy, sheeting, pink head. Tart cherry juice aroma. Bit of wood and spice. Fairly acetic, tart, and also kinda sweet. Soft mouthfeel, that gets more lively and tart as it needs the finish. Well executed.
