Just as the Serpent Bite and loss of Eurydice was the catalyst for Orpheus’s journey, our love for hops and sour beers was the catalyst for Orpheus Brewing. Serpent Bite is a dry-hopped, sour mash saison, with a tart bite, and notes of orange and tropical fruit.
Serpent Bite is moderately assertive, citrusy, and acidic. Rich meats, fatty fish, and ripe cheese will be complemented by the fruit character and nicely cut by the acidity.
Hops: Mandarina Bavaria, Apollo
Grain: two row barley, white wheat
Fermentation: wild sour mash, French saison yeast
