Poured from a bottle (2013) into a Cantillon Tumbler. Pours a reddish purple. No visibility, and tons of carbonation. The head is pink and fizzy, it only last a few moments before it disappears. The nose is barnyard, with a lot of earthy must. Tastes of dry cherries, and musty horse blanket. Loads of carbonation in the mouth, and a good amount of acidity. Its a treat for me to find a bottle of the Kreik Mariage Parfait because we see so many bottles of the unflavored version (which is great). Very enjoyable offering from Boon.

375 ml bottle, best before date of 04/11/2030, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a deep red color with a couple fingers of dark pink head, recedes to a collar and leaves little lacing.

S- Some tart cherry, sweet fruit/raspberry aroma, oak.

T- Moderately tart and lactic with some sour dark cherry flavor, which could stand to be a bit stronger, has some lingering fruity sweetness, some oak and tannins.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, moderately dry finish.

O- A pretty nice kriek, it's a bit sweeter than I would like, it's very drinkable but I easily preferred the Geuze Mariage Parfait.

12.7oz. corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip. 2008 Vintage. Thanks to beerwolf for the bottle!

(A)- Pours a deep cranberry; almost plum color. Produced a nice cap of pink froth; some lacing.

(S)- A nice fruity-like jam tart character. Some nice dry oak.

(T)- Similar to the smell. A ripe jammy cherry/berry flavor. Some acidity. Finishes dry and oaky.

(M)- A nice mellow carbonation level. A nice balance too of fruit and oak with a kiss of sour acidity.

(D)- Overall, a solid Kriek. An easy to drink and enjoy offering, so very approachable if you are just getting into the style. Surprisingly refreshing too.

A – Pours a beautiful crystal clear light red with a very active one finger white head that only lasts but a second. No lacing seen.

S – Tart sour cherry is the first thing I smell. There is some a little funk there but mostly the cherry is very dominant.

T – Nice tart cherry with very mild acidic character.

M – The carbonation on this one is really high…the bubbles streaming out reminded me of champagne. It is light to medium bodied a bit dry.

O – Overall this was delicious lambic that I really enjoyed. The cherry was not astringent and the tart acidity was not overwhelming.

2008 bottle split with oglmcdgl and Dan who just found out that supplication is his favorite beer, Kudos.

A- BOKMP has a ruby red sangria watered down blood color with a off white/ pinkish head that fades with ease. No lace on this sucka and after a while it looks dead.

S- Smell is cherry all day with a small amount of barnyard muskiness, hay and earth. A slight medicinal vibe thats not to large. Light malt and I might even detect some chocolate, but I could be reaching there.

T- A cherry kriek that is inbetween sweet and sour, this is much more quaffable than the regular boon kriek which was sweet as hell, the sweetness is tamed much in this, but still there. A small amount of oak and red grapes and a touch of barnyard in the back. Simple.

M- Above light bodied this one is sour on the mouth but not overly puckering. A slight spritz in the beginning goes into a smooth ride afterwards. Lightly carbed, the fruit sticks around for a few. Acidity plays a part.

D- I liked this, it just did bot blow me away. A bit one sided although the cherry component is quite bold and noticed. A bit more oak would of been a treat and a tad more bubbles as this seemed kinda dead, although it could be unblended. Glad I tried it.
