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.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2004
I had an old version of this one - maybe that accounts for my not that overwhelming impression. The the color is brown and it has no head. The aroma is of wood and ammoniac. The flavor was sour - as it is supposed to be - but with strong notes of ammoniac. The ammoniac really draws this beer down for me - I have to try to find it again.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Corket half bottle, vintage 2008, 3 years old
L0308 bb 04.11.2030

Cloudy ruby color, with a dark pink head, frothy. Strong aroma of cherries, cherry kernes, and some cellar smell from the Lambic. Very high in carbonation, it has the qualities of the Lambic, with a moderate sourness, and an accentuated dryness, some astringency, along with some cellar character; the fruit is present but mild, missing some of the cherry potential; the final is a bit lemony too.
Refreshing, not extremely complex.
