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.

mergels (15) - SWITZERLAND - APR 10, 2015
Bottle from 2011 - bought at Erzbierschof Zurich, shared at home. Dark red/ruby color. Creamy, rose foam disappears as it comes. Not as sour as expected, tasting cherry-wineish, some funk. Carbonation above average (which is usual for these kind of beers), but not unpleasant. Rather dry.

Rouge fonce, effervescence moyenne-faible, col rose foncé. Excellent lambic, cerises foncées, boisée, légèrement surette, alcool bien masqué. On a surtout envie de la regoûter (bien) vieillie!

radzik5555 (601) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Butelka 0.375L.
Wygląd: Rubinowo, czerwone. Obfita, różowa piana, średnio trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa.
Aromat: Wiśnie, stajnia, końska derka. Dość kwaśny, dziki i owocowy aromat. Intensywny i lekko drażniący w dobrym tego słowa znaczeniu, taki jakiego można byłoby się po lambiku spodziewać.
Odczucie: Wytrawne, musujące, wysokie wysycenie.
Smak: Wiśniowe, kwaśne z dziką nutą końskiej derki, pestki wiśni. Kwasność intensywna ale krótka. Lekko medyczny posmak, coś jak wibowit w proszku. Lekka pestkowa goryczka.
Całość: Świetny Kriek.

King_Alex_II (522) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Dark Bordeaux ruby red with delightful pink/rose foam. The smell is definitely cherry but not as sour as I hoped for. The taste is sour on the tip of the tongue and a beautiful excessive carbonation in the beginning. A bit too sweet for my taste, but still an awesome beer.

SinH4 (932) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Harvest 2013. Dark ruby-purple color with big pink head. Looks awesome! Typical Oude Kriek aroma, with a nice funk. Taste is soft sour, stone, kriek. Foamy in the mouth, dry finish. Heavy as well, from the ABV. Very high carbonation, which is a pity because it keeps you from tasting the details. Fortunately, the carbonation is gone quickly. A great Kriek nonetheless. The ABV gives a nice feeling of a little sweetness.

McWorta (941) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 3, 2015
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.
