Boon – Kriek Mariage Parfait
375ml – 8%abv
From Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. This beer is unfiltered, unsweetened, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavours, preservatives or colourings added. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a strong Lambic of spontaneously fermentated beer. Then it is aged on 6,200 litre oak foeders (large wooden casks) for about 6 to 8 months. After a refermentation and maturation of 6 months in the bottle it is ready. Kriek Mariage Parfait has a high ageing potential, keep it by preference for more than two years in a cool and dark place. The beer offers tart cherry notes with some mild lambic funk, winy, well supported by its alcohol content. The palate is dominated by loads of fresh tart cherry notes with some mild barnyard, almond and some vanilla notes, balanced against a backdrop of musky roasted oak.
