Boon: Kriek: Mariage Parfait (Belgium: Fruit Lambic: 8% ABV)
Visual: Large fizzy bubbles for a black cherry yogurt coloured head. Dark black cherry body.
Nose: Lightly tart. Wet oak. Tart apples. Sour cherries. Musky. Lemon cleaner air.
Body: Black cherry yogurt. Sour cherries. Sulphur. Fizzing texture. Charring. Tart apples. Wet oak. banana yogurt under notes. Cheese boards.
Finish: Drying. Wet oak and sour cherries. Malt biscuits. Oats. Tannins. Slight peanuts.
Conclusion: This is an interesting mix, or marriage if it will, and it seems they will. This really pushes a proper sour cherries and wet oak character, something that feels like it should be very deep and still, and yet it is played over an invigorating, fizzing lively main body.
The flavours and textures are remarkably complex in the body, it uses tartness, but the main character has such a solid weight that keeps it a much more restrained beer…
