Pours a hazy, deep golden amber coloration with a small, fluffy head that would probably have been huge if I didn't need to rest the bottle a little to clean up after it gushed quite a bit upon opening. Smells of doughy, bready malt and estery/hoppy fruit notes of apricot, apple and gooseberry, as well as just a hint of funk, oak and tannins. Taste is an excellent balance of biscuity, bready malt, estery fruit and much lighter spice and some floral, grassy hoppy accents, with notes of apricot, apple, gooseberry, white grape, red berries and white pepper, as well as a subtle underlying tartness, mildly cheesy funk and musty, tannic oak. Finishes with a light tartness and bitterness, as well as some fruity esters and subtle musty, tannnic funk and oak lingering in the aftertaste. Effervescent mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

I've said this before, but it really can't be overstated that noone does Wild/Farmhouse Ales like Kemker does in Germany right now and this beer is a prime example of this fact. There is just such a lovely, subtle complexity to this, with a superb balance of fruity esters, grassy hops, musty funk and tannic oak as well as a perfect underlying acidity. This just makes for a brew that feels quite rich and complex, yet subtle and easy-drinking at the same time, with a great deph of character. The fruity and slighty spicy esters are most pronounced here, with some quite rich stone fruit and berry notes, that are complented just perfectly by the subtle funk/acidity and more pronounced musty, tannic oak. Overall. this makes for an excellent, fruit-forward Farmhouse Ale with a great depth of character, subtle complexity and great body and mouthfeel that is an absolute joy to drink.
