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.

harrisoni (15041) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2009
37.5cl bottle from Dranken Geers. 2007 bottle. Hey, I’ve never rated this. In fact I don’t think I have had it before. Hazy deep red, thin pink head. Some moderate funk and strong cherry aroma. It feels fantastic in the mouth and I love the fruit in the mouth. Really good cherries and then this sour dryness on the finish. So lovely. The 8% ABV doesn’t come into it. Really good. Far dryer than the regular kriek. It’s wonderful, I love the flavour and in particular the mouthfeel.

Svesse (6900) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2009
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm. 2007 harvest) Deep burgundy red colour with frothy, pink head. Fruity, sourish nose with distinct notes of cherries and almonds. Fruity, slightly tart taste with cherries, almonds and red berries. Not quite as tart as the beers from Cantillon or 3 Fonteinen, but the sourness is extremely well balanced and lingers nicely with the cherries and almonds. Very tasty. Excellent kriek.

Bottled@Akkurat, Stockholm. Murky deep cherry red colour with small pinkish beige head. Aroma is rather tart cherry pips along with some mild wooen notes. Flavour is being quite much the same in a very nice balance. Refreshing.
