"Kriekenlambic/k" is the draught product which has gone to no extra bottle-fermentation. It can be either straight, or sweetened for debit. In this last case, it is usually pressurized.

cpetrone84 (1201) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Had on cask at the brewery. Pour is dark ruby red with copper edges and a creamy light pink head leaving a huge lace. The nose is overly singular and heavy on fleshy cherries. The taste folllows suit, ripe fleshy cherries, much akin to cherry juice. Body is light and soft, fair amount of carbonation but lingering finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. Poured up via wooden cask gravity feed with a grape fruit juice color and deep ruby red hues supporting a minimal thin pink ring of foam. The aroma offers up musty notes of wood and funk and getting more sour the deeper I pull. I get full dark currant to grape skin like notes. The taste is rich, bright and tart with dark currant like flavor and then getting a bit spicy with oak before smooth red wine nuances are noticed. I also get some tannins seeming to dry it out into the finish. Wow, nice smooth rich and easy drinking.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
On draught at the 21st Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Pours a very dark ruby colour with no head. A Cabernet Sauvignon aroma with cherries, lemon, almonds and oak. Similar flavours and fairly tart with a very dry tannic finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely. Really reminded me of a Cabernet Sauvignon.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2012
Dark red colour, purple red. No head. Aroma of cherry, pips, berries, almond. Quite fruity. Flavour very balanced sweet and sour, loads of cherry, quite astringent. Finish cherry, cherry pips, almond, marsipan and succade. Very lovely!
(Draught @ De Nacht van de Grote Dorst, Eizeringen. Supposedly the lambic for the Mariage Parfait. Thanks Uli for suggesting it to me!)

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2012
small wooden cask @ ZBF 2012 // base Marriage Parfait Kriek // (a) very dark Bordeaux red, tiny pink head // (s) sweet cherries, touch candy-like // (t) starts out quite sweet, oodles of sweet cherries, artificial, tad candy filling, hints of malts, fruity, hints of wood, maybe I can imagine some sourness in the body // (b) flat, touch mashed fruits, how come both the krieken & frambozenlambik are so simple & non-sour & fruity sweet (bordering on sweetened)?

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2012 Note: a mix of two ratings. The scores entered are the average of both.

26/V/2012 - on tap @ WoSF 2012 (Opstal) - (2012-540)

Little cloudy ruby red beer, no head. Aroma: pretty sour, bit of unripe cherries, little cheese, bit sweet. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty spicy, bitter, some cinnamon, cherry candy. Tartness cutting through it like a razor. Aftertaste: sour, spices, pretty bitter as well.
Ar: 6, Ap: 4, T: 7, P: 4, O: 14, Total: 3.5

29/IV/2012 - from small wooden barrel @ ZBF 2012 (Leuven) - BB: n/a (2012-450)

Note: advertised as the blended, unbottled, Kriek Mariage Parfait.

Clear deep ruby beer, small pink creamy layer, little stable. Aroma: very fruity, cherry candy ("poepkes"), little dusty (woody?) and some urine, let’s call it bretta. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, little sweet, bitter, sour tangy. Aftertaste: still fruity, cherries, bitter woody touch, green apple skin, little bit of alcohol.
Ar: 8, Ap: 4, T: 5, P: 4, O: 9, Total: 3

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2012
Cask @ ZBF’12. Holy mother of all labmic, this is divine. Couleur rubis, acajou trouble profond, col est minime avec qcq bulles percant la surface. Arôme oscille entre le vin, raisin, cerise noire le tout étant renforcé par un alcool plus présent, terreux fruité. En bouche, profile cerise profond, fruits noirs avec une palais réchauffant qui pour moi rappel le côté vin de la Zwanze 2011 fraîche, le tout conserve un très bon profile cerise aigre très appréciable au palais. Pour avoir déguster la framboise à 5%, on y note toute la différence en alcool pour une bière qui se rapproche d’un vin et montre toutes les subtilités que ces qcq degrés de différence donnent en bouche..

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Translucent ruby, thin pink head. Nose of cherry pie, bit of soap, breadcrust. Flavor is more straightforward cherry, sugar clinging to teeth, light citrus. Very sweet, cherry pie filling finish, one-sided and not that developed.
