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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2013
2009 bottle found in a package store in Birmingham, AL for $5.99. Word. Pours dense, deep ruby with a bright pink and everlasting head. Nose is bright and acetic, with notes of cherries, sour lemon, wood, leather, and funk. Taste is tart and acetic and the palate finishes quite dry. A hint of a corky flavor is the only thing holding this one back from complete and utter greatness.

imperialAle93 (2) - ITALY - APR 22, 2015 does not count
vintage 2013. Small pinky head on the top. Very deep red colour. On the aroma rich cherry, wood, vinous, light vanilla and apple funky notes. The palate in very big, medium carbonation, medium to full bodied, with a punch of cherries, wood, and alternance between acetic first and sweet and wood later. No alcohol what so ever. Big beer, very complex and robust.

Bottle from 2011 - bought at Erzbierschof Zurich, shared at home. Dark red/ruby color. Creamy, rose foam disappears as it comes. Not as sour as expected, tasting cherry-wineish, some funk. Carbonation above average (which is usual for these kind of beers), but not unpleasant. Rather dry.
