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. 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.

375ml corked bottle, 2011 vintage, thanks Russ! Tart cherry aroma with notes of funk, wood and Brett. Pours deep red colored with a very thing white head that burned off quickly due to high carbonation. Starts with fruity cherry flavors that are sweet as well as a light oakiness and live mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with light cherry tartness from the Brett presumably. Excellent Kriek as it is well balanced between sweet and sour without either gaining dominance.

ÇA c’est bon! Dégustée en compagnie de Guillaume Sigouin en parallèle avec Mariage Parfait régulière. Une magnifique robe rouge claire et juste. Le liquide est coiffé d’une jolie mousse ni pompeuse, ni timide. Pétillance également agréable émanant du fond de mon verre. Arômes de cerise naturelle parfaitement balancée et naturelles. C’est si complexe et bien fait que j’y retrouve autant la cerise noire que la cerise griotte. Un côté boisé m’amuse également. En bouche le mouthfeel est absolument parfait. C’est clair, léger, savoureux, bien effervescent. De loin la meilleure Kriek que j’ai dégustée de ma vie.

Pours a cloudy, very dark ruby red color with golden copper edges and a one finger pinkish head that immediately settles into a thin, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. Slightly funky aroma that’s bursting with intense cherry flavor. There’s some lactic acid, funky bugs, horse blanket and barnyard character but it’s really fruit forward, to the point where I’m picking up the skin and pit of the fruit. Slightly damp smelling with cobweb and ancient oak but not as intensely funky as other lambic. Mostly because of the prominent fruit. Full bodied, intensely tart and puckering with a much funkier flavor than the aroma suggests. Lots of barnyard, sour acidity and lactic funk along with damp, toasted oak and a sweet vinous fruit character. Slightly syrupy and sweet with a strong cherry/cherry juice flavor. Very organic tasting with cherry skin and juicy fruit flavor balancing out the funk and acetic acid. Again, the pit from the fruit is evident, complimenting the funk and charred oak. Subtle acetic vinegar lingering in the bone dry finish but it’s not harsh or solvent like at all with plenty of juicy cherry fruit flavor balancing things out. Not as extreme as some of the other fruit lambics that I’ve had but its a really nice Kriek that ill definitely be buying again.

37.5cl bottle. Labelled as 2014. Dark red colour with a thin pinkish head. Funk, cherries, wood, earth and brett in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium smooth body. Taste is well balanced between the tart, acid, sweet and bitter notes. Dry and cherry notes towards the finish. Overall, a perfect marriage and a very good beer.
