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.

__Rb81 (134) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle at home (2012). Pours dark ruby red with a large pink head that quickly disappears. Sour aroma of cherries and earthy wood. Sweet cherrie taste with a nice long sour aftertaste. Quite good, but apparently even better when aged.

robinvboyer (2994) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
2009 bottle courtesy of the slovak sniper. Dark,ruby pour, with a big thick pink head. Huge aroma of vinegar, funk, wet hay and tart, sour cherries. Pefrect carb and mouth feel. Finish is not as tart and sour as you might expect, but its still very nice. Loads of cherries and funk. The alcohol is nowhere to be found. Great stuff.

thirstyrabbit (1070) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 20, 2014
Small corked bottle, 2011 on the neck. Burgundy body with a medium pink head. Aroma has tart cherries and some light funk. Medium sweet and tart taste with lots of cherries indeed. And some cranberry. Not as acidic as I feared it would be but on the other hand not notably complex either. Alcohol is totally covered. I’m not ashamed to admit that I like sweetened Lambics just as much and on some occasions even more.
