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
Availability: Draft Only. Oct-Dec
