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.

Bottle. [thank you, Joris]
[Bottle #6 in the Kolding Blindtasting, 20th June 2009]
[vintage 1986]
Pours dark brownish red with a small, bubbly rim of off-white foam. Aroma is tart, soft cherry, light caramel and funkiness. Soft carbonation, great dry mouthfeel. Flavour is seriously mouth-puckeringly tart. Still lots of cherries, a hint of peach and a good, balanced note of caramel and funkiness. Lightly warming as well.

NOTE: This is the first time, I’ve ever opened a bottle of beer, where the cork had a worm in it... thankfully, the cork still sealed off the beer nicely.

MaxxDaddy (413) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2009
1983 bottle @ Kulminator. Pours light red with wispy white head. Aroma is slightly sour and a bit musty. A good bit of acetic acid as well. Taste is absurdly sour to the point of drying your mouth out. With 26 years of age on it, there are only vague hints of cherries in the flavor. Finish is more sour, of course. While definitely fun to drink, I’m not sure I could ever do the entire 750 by myself. Serious sour goodness!

KimJohansen (10347) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Hazy red with a medium white head. Sour aroma with barnyard sour cherries, almond and wooden notes. Flavour was very sour with notes of sour cherries, wood, straw, almonds, barnyard and lemonds. FInished seriously sour. Love it and by far the best product I have ever tasted from Frank Boon!
