A Marriage Of Lambics, Cherries

Not a lot of this unique beer has made it stateside.  For those looking for something interesting and unique to drink this weekend, take a look at this one.

Brouwerij Boon is based in Lembeek, Belgium.  They specialize in gueuze & lambic style beers.  Kriek Mariage Parfait is as the name says, a kriek beer. You get a kriek beer after you take a lambic (beer fermented with wild yeast) and fermented it again with sour cherries. These traditional styles are typically brewed in and around Brussels, Belgium. To make this “parfait” Boon has blended various years of the cherry lambic together and fermented it again in the bottle.  You’ll find those who appreciate lambics, speak highly of this beer.
