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.

750 ml bottle, 1995 vintage, into glass. Cheers to Christmas! Cork was in there tightly and took some wiggling to get out, but no pop at all. No carbonation/head at all. Great crystal clear red body with some orange to the hue. The aroma is fresh sour cherries with a hint of barnyard funk. The flavor is a notch up from the aroma. More potent and lively, yet still smooth and tamed. A bit sour and funky, but mostly fruity and dry. Overall: very nice easy going brew. I probably should have saved this to have it with desert, but couldnt wait any longer!

Sammy (9314) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2008
have a neutral label, not a pink one, from State Line Liquors. A wonderful geuze. Wonderful aroma for the style. What fruit was naturally imparted? This is a bit aged, but still good for another two decades. Funky bold, a white head on creamy yellow with active bubbles. By itself. Oal, sour, very drinkable and satsifying. Good carbontion.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2009 Bottle at DLD 2008. Thanks to BrianK in line for dark lord one hell of a beer. This is one of the original bottles (vintage 1995) when Girardin was uses in the blending. Wow what an awesome mildly funked palate cleansing bastard of a lambik. Loved it!

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2008
In short: My favourite Fruit Lambic ever. The driest and most intense Iíve had. Funky as hell too. A vintage masterpiece.
How: Generous sample from a nearly 20 year old bottle. Eternal thanks to Brian (BrianK) for sharing to gem. The highlight of Dark-Lord-Day 2008
The look: Redish amber body with a medium beige head.
In long: Ho man is this ever aromatic and tasty. I could smell that extra-funky sour aroma for hours. Taste is dry oak, dry cherries and dry everything. This is dusty, extra-sour, extra-tart and especially extra-dry. Never though Iíd find a beer drier than 3 Fonteinen Framboos but here we are. This is ďmaking facesĒ intense yet I couldnít keep my lips off my glass and I really had to pace myself. Statistics say that those who claim to be enjoying a 20 years old fantastic Perfect Marriage are probably referring to this beer and not their spouse.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 15+ year old bottle (as dated by Boon) Holy shit, this beer is dry. Nice and funky just the way i like it. I donít know if itís the age of this beer (Iím assuming so looking at previous reviews) that makes it amazing, but who cares this beer if insane. Definately going to put another 7 years on my last bottle and drink it at 20 years old, i canít friggen wait. UPDATE: I can still remember almost exactly how this beer tastes 2 months after tasting it and itís without a doubt the the best lambic iíve ever had. That being said Iím bumping up my rating. The bottle we drank deserves it. My first 5.
