Pours a clear, deep amber coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smells of doughy, slightly bready malt and estery fruit and spice, with notes of red apple, apricot and clove, as well as hints of cheesy funk and tannic oak. Taste is an excellent balance of doughy, slighty bready malt and distinct estery fruit and spice notes of red apple, apricot and gooseberry, with lighter clove and cinnamon, as well as hints of blue cheese funk and musty, tannic oak. Finishes with a medium tartness and some red apple, apricot, cinnamon and oak lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and light/medium carbonation.

Aoltbeer is their flagship Wild Ale, a "M√ľnstersch Alt" that certainly doesn't have a lot in common with modern examples of the style though. They vary batches of this considerably, aging them in different barrels for different amounts of time and with additional ingredients sometimes added. I would love to have a side-by-side of different batches at some point, but from memory this seems somewhat richer and sweeter than the last batch I had, with quite distinct red apple and apricot notes, perhaps a bit less funk, but more, quite tannic oak. As alway, it's a damn fine barrel-aged Wild Age from Germany's premier, and pretty much only, maker of the style. Rich, complex and well-balanced, another real treat from Kemker.
