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.

12.7 oz bottle, 2007. Clear garnet with a puffy pink head. Nose is cherry, barnyard and lemon. Medium body with sparkling then soft carb. Taste is black cherry, toffee and red apple peels. Finishes dry and minerally with just a trace of sour fruit. Classy stuff.

In courtesy of Nisse666. Pours hazy cherry red with small pink head. Fresh fruity and berry - not l ike a kriek - slightly sweet and intense sour aroma. Crispy, sweet and fruity mouthfeel. Lovely balanced sour, fruity, sweet and tart cherry flavor with notes of peppermint . Sour and fruity balanced palate. Finishes nice thin with great fruity dry acidity.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2010
(Bottled, 2007 harvest) Clear, deep blood ruby red with a small, pinkish head. Quite tart nose with natural and strong, dark cherry aroma. Flavor is mostly ripe cherries, with tartness and some sticky sugar. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Quite sweet overall, but the 8% is perfectly hidden, and I liked the full, dark-cherryish body (distantly reminiscent of the excellent De Cam Kriekenlambik). 5266

head: pink , away fast !
colour: deep slightly hazy red
smell: malts, lambic, tad sour, tad tarty , cherrys on sugar, tad citric, bit barley

Damico (3002) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2010
2008 bottle form WholeFood SoHo...the kriek pours dark thick crimson with a beautiful bubbly foamy pink head. The amazing aroma of sweet berries from the cherries and some funk from the yeast, but not too much. The flavor of cherries rounds out a nice wild funky flavor typical of Boon and the great sour producers of Belgium.

(375ml bottle 2008 vintage best by 8-10-2028 thanks to bu11zeye) clearish deep garnet, fine white bubbles around the rim of the glass. Nose is funky cherries that are quite real, tangerines. Taste of fungi, very tart and dry cherries, cellar, moss, almost seems tart just to be so. I liked this a lot.

(375ml, 2008 vintage) Pours a ruby body with a medium pinkish off-white head. Aroma of cherry, earth, a meadow on a spring morning, a hint of chocolate, almond, and balsamic vinegar. Flavor of cherry, lemon, and subtle yogurt.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2010
2007 bottle (well, the neck label says 2007, but the best by date is for 2028. Hmm), gifted to me the the legendary Fin. Thanks bud. Pour on this one is a cloudy red with a fizzy, soda-pop head. The aroma is a bit clammy, toe-nail funk, hay, wheat. Nice and funky, not particularly acidic. The body is thin on this one, and there is a notable, unwelcome candy sweetness in the flavor, almost Lindemans like, though not nearly as intense. The finish is short and dullish. Really lacking in the acid department. I hate to say it, but yet another dud from Boon.

Big thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this rare sour. 2008 vintage with a best by date of 10/8/28. The beer pours a beautiful dark red color with a white head. The aroma is strong cherries but there is also some nice funk mixed in. One of the funkier smelling krieks that I have tried. The flavor is a great mix of brett notes, barnyard funk, cherries and surprisingly, some alcohol. The tartness level is light to medium. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very glad I got to try this beer. It definitely lived up to the hype.
