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.

CaptainTilven (167) - Nancy, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2016
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.

375ml bottle at home. Dark purple with a medium pinkish head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with nice sour tones. Sour cherries, tart, rhubarb, wood and some acidic tones. Good stuff.

KoNrRiI (1231) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2016

0.375 bottle.
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...

asheft (2990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
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.

The_Osprey (6631) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
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.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy reddish purple color with a small pinkish head. The aroma and flavor have tart cherries, some sweetness, tart citrus, funk, wood, earthy, dry, some acidity, interesting mix, nose is a bit better than the flavor, though still good.

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.
