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.

wedgie9 (2598) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Tasted on 9/21/11 from a corked and caged 275mL bottle purchased at Midtown, 2008 vintage. Pours an opaque, muddy garnet color with a very thick pink head that recedes fairly quickly to nothing at all. The nose is super sour with tons of lemon acidity, burnt rubber, red wine vinegar, just a light hint of vanilla, and, of course, sour funky cherries. The flavor is very dry and sour with puckering lemon acid, burnt rubber, red wine vinegar, tart cherries, and just a touch of vanilla. The body is medium and tannic with lively carbonation and a very long tart and sour cherry finish.

2008 Vintage. Pours a deep red with a light pink head. Big oak and sour cherry aroma. Flavor is nutty, sour, dry, with a lip smacking tart finish.

phillybeer7779 (101) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2011
2008 vintage. Pours a dark red with lots of pink, fizzy head. Barnyard and cherries on the nose. Tart cherries dominate the flavor with some funk and oak. No hint at all of this being 8%! So glad this was imported to Philly this year, if you see this grab it!!

from erzbierschof.ch; 2008 vintage - hazy ruby-brown beer with no head retention; deep aroma of wood and cherries, sourish with some notes of vinegar; a high carbonation and pretty sticky; some sweetness below; dry and sourish/acidic; long notes of cherries and wood, vinegar - a beautiful beer!

Vignale (3211) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2011
Djuprödfärg som drar åt blått. Lätt skum som lägger sig snabbt. Medelstor körsbärsdoft. Klassisk kriek, men lite starkare än vanligt, lätt besk från jästen men inte så mycket kärnkaraktär. Istället ganska torr och måttligt syrlig. Påminner både till smak och färg om morellerna på mitt körsbärsträd. Mycket läskande och god.

Hermod (6248) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle, vintage 2008, BBE 2030. Poured ruby red color with a pink head, not very longlasting. Aroma is acidic, quite sour cherries and some earthy/cellar notes. Flavor is less sour, if not sweet cherries. Quite noticeable apple notes in the dry finish. Very very refreshing. One of the best fruit lambics I have tried so far.

gEUS (1702) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2011
37.5cl bottle, vintage 2008. Pours deeply red with a medium pink head. Nose has tart cherries and some wood. Taste is quite extraordinary: it has the freshness and acidity as expected from a Kriek but it comes with a round mouthfilling body that makes is well balanced. Dark fruits and strawberry jam complete the taste... Beautiful beer

Clyx (208) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2011
2008 Vintage Aroma: There is that funky horse blanket, sour cherries, vinegar, apple maps. Taste: Sour cherries, seed character, like berry seeds, some funky tone, but they are not as present as they were on the nose. The is also some wood that almost is wrapped around the taste. It’s quite tart too... Mouthfeel: Big body, a worming sensation, smooth.
