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.

sonnycheeba (3301) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep ruby with thick, frothy pink head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is cherries, red grapes, cookie malt, and funky, sour fruit. Flavor is balanced sour and tart fruit esters which transitions smoothly to a sweet, red dessert wine flavor; dry finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

stevencon (418) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2014
2011 vintage: wow the color of the head and lacing is an impressive highlighter pink. The body has a nice deep ruby plum. Aroma of funk barnyard with jammy cherry pie. Effervescent mouth feel with tannic wood. Fruit jammy sweetness followed by a dry funk sour grain. Beer is very dry. Finishes like a very dry stale toast with cherry jammy spread on it.

daknole (8863) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Deep cranberry juice colored pour, pink head. Flavor is interesting. It’s like a true kriek meets a gueuze meets a lemonade. Starts sour, leads I to tart cherries and lemons and finishes a tad funky and dry.

Almost opaque dark cherry red beer, small pink head. Palate is light and crispy and airy. Rich but mellow cherry. Little dry seltzer. Mild tang. Light finish. Simple and rather drinkable. Hides the abv superbly.

Saeglopur (253) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from Beergium.com, 2012 edition. Deep, dark red body, with a medium, frothy to creamy, pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, sour red berries, earth, tart, wood, flowers. Taste is dry, sour, with the same aromas, very well balanced and satisfying. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with a medium carbonation and it finishes sour and dry. Really tasty! Fortunately not sweet at all, like so many other Kriek beers. Greatly balanced, refreshing and with the high ABV completely hidden, so that it is dangerously quaffable.

Feines Lambic, das erstaunlicherweise etwas an Kirschen vermissen lässt. Dafür erstaunlich süffig, erfrischend, ein klein wenig kernig und mit ausgewogener Perlung. Mild und beruhigend wirkt es fast. Klasse.
