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.

fkoolen (1483) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2018
UPDATED: APR 22, 2018 37,5cl 2013 ed. Pours a beautifully dark red, burgundy color topped by a nicely stable pinkish head. Sweet cassis and cherries, funk, light dry oak and faintly acidic; very smooth. Soft mouthfeel, soft prickly carbonation, body's a bit watery.

DraftMaestro2 (106) - Whiteley, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2018
UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 Draft at Craft 19, Mercado Municipal de Vallehermoso, Madrid. Assumed from style and ABV as details on board inconclusive. Excellent sour kriek although the girls disagree.

SarkyNorthener (5144) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2018
2013 Bottle from Simply Local, Burntwood. Deep ruby beer with medium light pink head. Aroma of light cherry and farmhouse funk. Taste is funky, some cherry and malts. Great carbonation. Very good but not as strong on the sour cherry front as I would like.

murzyn (783) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 31, 2018
Barwa ciemno czerwona, piana spora. Aromat skóry, drewna, kwaśnych wiśni, lekko ostre przyprawy. W smaku kwaśna wiśnia, pestki, wiśnie trochę nut funky. Alko totalnie niewyczuwalne. Fajne pifko.

Kauge (2231) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2018
2013 bottle from Rimi. BB 20.05.2035. Looks beautiful, smells and tastes delicious, the cherry seems so 'real' and fresh, and the funk takes it to another level. Acidity and sourness tolerable. Crisp. The ABV is rather hidden. Good stuff, went down like nothing, gotta savour this better next time...

GoufCustom (2401) - HONG KONG - FEB 25, 2018


375 ml cork bottle "2013 vintage" (batch # 61304) opened with a loud “pop” bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Translucent deep rose red colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Half finger head with soapy off-pink foams which fades in 40 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant malt, with strong sour cherries, strong funk, strong red wine, caramel, strong yoghurt, spices, sugar, barrel and tannic. Very deep and nice!

Taste: Strong tart malt, with moderate sour cherries, sherry, light red wine, pretty strong alcohol, very sharp liquorices, wood barrel, sugar notes, funk, lemon and tannin.

Body: Mid to light body. Thin palate.

Mouth Feel: Fair maltyness in a slightly runny background. Sour cherry taste is hollowed by layers of sherry, red wine and then sharp booze. Fair funk spicyness with very light sweetness, light lemon and barrel and light tannin to round. Hmmm...

Bitterness / Tannic: Fair to light in nose and taste. The sharp booze gives it a abrupt, fair astringent light malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Boozy funky and fairly tart to mouth.

Comments: The deep winey aroma is quite impressive, but the taste is flat - not much cherries, only a whiff of sharp booze and not enough funk. Hollow as a Kriek and not enough to be gauged with a Geuze. Half-hearted and disappointing.

maurog (26) - ITALY - FEB 16, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 Strong fruity cherry flavor in straight lambic style. Slightly acidic and with solid haze on top. Full flavor, medium carbonation.
