Tepache is a traditional fermented Mexican soft drink and Wild have decided to make an adult version.
More importantly, it’s an absolute delight.
Brewed with pineapples, spices and an in-house wild yeast strain, a little lactose has been added to bring a touch of sweetness and a smooth body to this deep amber beer.
The aroma is sweet and fruity with a hint of farmyard silage, it’s earthy and round and inviting, and taking a swig you find a sharp fruitiness, sugar cane, Demerara sugar syrup, runny honey and crumbly biscuits.
There’s also a sharp herbal hit from the hops, they’re steely and dry and they add a good freshness to the fungal woodiness of the salty yeast.
The finish is lightly sour and delightfully bitter.
