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 37,5 cl BBE 2031. Poured dark ruby in colour with a pink fast disappearing head. Cherries and light sour apples in aroma. Cherries mostly in flavour with some sour barnyard notes as well. The sweetness of cherries is quite dominent in aftertaste but feels still nice.

radzik5555 (515) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Butelka 0.375L.
Wygląd: Rubinowo, czerwone. Obfita, różowa piana, średnio trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa.
Aromat: Wiśnie, stajnia, końska derka. Dość kwaśny, dziki i owocowy aromat. Intensywny i lekko drażniący w dobrym tego słowa znaczeniu, taki jakiego można byłoby się po lambiku spodziewać.
Odczucie: Wytrawne, musujące, wysokie wysycenie.
Smak: Wiśniowe, kwaśne z dziką nutą końskiej derki, pestki wiśni. Kwasność intensywna ale krótka. Lekko medyczny posmak, coś jak wibowit w proszku. Lekka pestkowa goryczka.
Całość: Świetny Kriek.

King_Alex_II (298) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Dark Bordeaux ruby red with delightful pink/rose foam. The smell is definitely cherry but not as sour as I hoped for. The taste is sour on the tip of the tongue and a beautiful excessive carbonation in the beginning. A bit too sweet for my taste, but still an awesome beer.

SinH4 (554) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Harvest 2013. Dark ruby-purple color with big pink head. Looks awesome! Typical Oude Kriek aroma, with a nice funk. Taste is soft sour, stone, kriek. Foamy in the mouth, dry finish. Heavy as well, from the ABV. Very high carbonation, which is a pity because it keeps you from tasting the details. Fortunately, the carbonation is gone quickly. A great Kriek nonetheless. The ABV gives a nice feeling of a little sweetness.

Bottle @ Parc Josaphat. Nice red color and pink foam. Aroma of wild cherries that comes back in the aftertaste. Well balanced, overall a good kriek.

McWorta (804) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 3, 2015
Dark bit cloudy red with brown hues and a light pink frothy head. On the nose aromas of cherry, earthy, woody, red grapes, black currant, almonds/marzipan hints of brett develops. Light fruity sweet with a well balanced acidity/sourness and a hint of bitterness with subtle notes of amaretto and balsamico. Medium fruity body; thin, bit lively and sticky texture and a long finish. Nice lasting aftertaste of cherry.

tmrmwel (1138) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle, vintage 2011, enjoyed January 2015. Pours clear dark red, with a big, but quickly receding, pink creamy head. Nice wooden aroma, with red wine barrels, leather and lots of nice cherries and forest berries, as well as farmhouse funk and lactic acid. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is musty and tart rather than sour, with fruits, grapes and tannins, as well as some funky wood and farmyard through the finish.

tdtm82 (848) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottled; Ale House Chelmsford! I feel harsh with the appearance as there is not much concentration on that it’s all about taste and taste is HUGE. Palate is super-clean. A slight puckering and acid levels but still really incredibly tasty .This vintage is 2011. The cherries are awesome. The barnyard texture is sublime, SO MUCH DAMN FUNK. It’s a JB’s record in a glass!!!! WOWZER! Utterly excellent. Drinkability is very high too! A touch rough on the palate but generally speaking this is world-class and I love my local for stocking it! BOOOOOOOOOOOM!
