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.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 37,5cl 2014 Vintage shared when Belgium was still a promise in the EUCup. - Makes a lot of sense as a bonedry, amped Kriek Lambiek featuring cherry stone, skins and quenching brett-thinned wheat in equal doses. Acidity remains tied in to the beer thin oaken body, feels like a crisp wood chip splinter of that cherry infused foeder on the tongue. Horsey aromas remain well-mannered, orchard like. Not a whole lot of cherry juiciness, all fruit turned into bone dry lambiek here. High-class summer sipper to revisit regularly.

tricksta_p (3614) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle at home. 2014 vintage enjoyed in juli 2016. Aroma is tart and slightly sweetish cherries, barnyard funk, oak. Flavour is moderate to medium sour and light sweet with a bone dry finish. Good complex funk and oak, lots of cherries. Though not as sour as I like my Kriek, this is an excellent specimen.

MrOrla (2303) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2016
Bottke at Home. Pours red with a small pinkish head. Aroma of cherries, light vinegar, light acedic, light barn, a whiff old Honey, light cherrystones. Taste is rather tart, with mellow cherries, a tad of barn and small scent off which stays for a while in the aftertaste. Dry and quite well balanced not too sour.

Saazale (8) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 4, 2016 does not count
Prostě tohle miluju, žádný přeslazený kriek pro masy, prostě přírodní, relativně výrazně prkvašený s vysokým ne příliš výrazným alkoholem v chuti. Něco co nejde nalít každému, ale úžasně se snoubí klasická chuť spontálně kvašeného pivka s višňovou ovocnou kyselinkou. Prostě něco co bych mohl stále. Lahvinka padla u pěkné knížky a úžasný večer byl dokonalí.

mariuspoenari (1689) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2016
37cl bottle at home. Dark ruby, clear, with a tall pink head with good retention. All sorts of cherries in the taste notes (macerated cherries, cherry preserve, slightly unripe cherries) on top of a light lambic funk layer. Light body, high carbonation and a sour-sweet aftertaste.

Matwill (91) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2016
Bouteille de 375ml, indiquant Récolte 2014. Une mousse crémeuse rosée se forme sur un liquide rougeâtre translucide. Le côté fruité typique des kriek ressort au nez. Son côté acidulé s’ajoute ŕ la combine, nous donnant un produit de haute qualité.
