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.

Fritz123 (1013) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton. Pinkish-red pour with a pink head. Beautiful color. Aroma starts with sour cherries, oak barrel, slight vinegar, sour apples and grapes as well as wild yeasts. Taste is close to the same with the cherries most dominant. Very sour, not a sweet fruit beer. Thin body, heavy carbonation. Finish is tart and delicious. Slightly dry ending. Very good.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle 0.375l. Pours deep red with pink head. Aroma is full of cherries, tart, wood. Taste is sour but with a very well balanced cherry sweetness and fruitiness, hints of wood. Aftertaste is sour with some bitterness, medium carbonation. Very drinkable Lambic, not ultra sour and tart but more on the sweeter side.

Ferris (4227) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Cherries and oak with just a slight acetone note. Cloudy ruby with a thin bubbly pink head. Tart cherry, nice rich oak notes but again with an acetone note. Overall, quite nice event with the acetone.

brnandersen (1910) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2014
Sample from bottle, CBF 2014. Deep red colour with a dense, pink head. Fruity aroma with tart cherries, caramel malts, vanilla, oak, yeasts, barnyard, some earthy hops. Taste is light sour. Medium body with a lively carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with tart cherries, fruits, yeasts and marzipan that chases most acidic notes away. Albeit a bit on the sweeter side, a very enjoyable Lambic.

dfroms (254) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle, 2008 vintage. Pours a deep ruby port color with almost no head. Aroma is deep and rich: red wine, musty cork, oak, cherry skins, plum, appetizing tartness. Oak and barrel character is especially pronounced. Taste is prominent sour cherry and grape skin tannins with a hint of balsamic, oak, and an almost Sour Patch-like sweet-tart quality. Really good.

Roze bier met schuim. Smaak is typisch voor Lambik, droog en zuur en niet zoet. Krieksmaak is duidelijk aanwezig.

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottled from Burg Bieren, 2011 harvest, BB 13 07 2032, large sample, served in a chouffe glass. Initially clear ruby color, big frothy pink head, diminishing to a firm medium lasting head. Aroma of cherry, marzipan, some horseblanket and barnyard, some oak wood. Quite sour in taste, slight fruity sweetness. Mostly citric acid and some lactic acid. Some nutty cherry pits in flavor as well. Quite full bodied, high on carbonation but not in a too disturbing way. Slight alcohol noticeable and slight dry in the finish. Quite heavy on the stomach, but still a lovely brew, although I prefer still (fruit)lambic instead of carbonated stuff.
