The Ale Apothecary
The Beer Formerly Known as LA TACHE is the table sour produced year-round by The Ale Apothecary. LA TACHE is made of malted barley & wheat and Goschie Farms Cascade Hops.
The hops are used only for aroma as the balance of the beer comes from acid produced by lactobacillus culture. It spends 3-9 months in barrels during a long, relaxed fermentation prior to a month-long dry-hopping (yes, in oak barrels!). Lemon citrus & fermented orchard fruit nose over earthy undertones. The palate finishes with soft lactic acid balanced by the malt body.
