The Ale Apothecary’s brewing process is so time-intensive and each release so small-batch, only the luckiest Wild Ale fans get a chance to taste the 100% wood-aged treasures. Everyone else is left to stalk trade forums and bottle exchanges to experience one of VinePair’s Top 10 Breweries in America.
These coveted brews have become the object of Wild Ale fans’ deepest desires. And today, collectors have their hungry eyes set on The Beer Formerly Known As La Tache 2018 Vintage.
The mixed-fermentation, Oak Barrel-Aged Sour reveals itself in a pour of golden effervescence. Potent hop aromatics on the nose are complemented by woody spice. Bright flavors of lemon tartness, crushed nectarines, Pink Lady apples, and sweet honey are all softly enveloped by a lactic acidity in the finish.
With a 4.29 on UT, The Beer Formerly Known As La Tache is an incredible balance between juice, acidity, barrel, and funk.
For Sour seekers, The Ale Apothecary name means quality over quantity. To the lucky ones, this directly translates to damn good beer. For the unlucky ones, it translates to “Crap, Sold out again?!” But don’t worry -- with Tavour, luck’s in the air today!
