Orpheus Brewing’s New Sour: Sykophantes

Orpheus Sykophantes

Orpheus Brewing (Atlanta, GA) has released Sykophantes Fig Sour this week. The fall offering is a part of the brewery’s rotating sour series.

Sykophantes features a few hundred pounds of figs, and dark candi syrup. A follow up to the summer offering, Serpent Bite.

In ancient Greece, “showing the fig” was a vulgar hand gesture, and Sykophantes means “one who shows the fig”. Earthy and full of dark fruit flavor from hundreds of pounds of figs and dark candy syrup, but with a sourness that cuts the gentle sweetness, Sykophantes is our fall beer.

Orpheus Sykophantes is available on draft only, through December, 2014

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Figs, Candi Syrup)
Hops: Northern Brewer
Malt: Two row barley, Munich, Special B
Yeast: Rochefort

Availability: Draft Only. Oct-Dec

7.5% ABV

One thought on “Orpheus Brewing’s New Sour: Sykophantes

  1. Tasted this today. A little light on the sour notes and the fig sits on your tongue long after swallowing. Great for people that like figs, but personally I found their Atalanta much more enjoyable as a sour.
