Orpheus Sykophantes Tart Fig

Brewed by Orpheus Brewing Company

Fruit Beer7.5% ABV

Sykophantes
sykophantes_artIn 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.

Food pairing
The combination of rich, earthy sweetness and sourness in Sykophantes make it a great pairing for rich, spiced foods like a Moroccan tagine or Hungarian goulash.

Composition
Hops: Northern Brewer
Grain: Two row barley, Munich, Special B
Fermentation: Yeast originating from Rochefort
Other: Black mission figs (dried, organic), Dark candy syrup
ABV: 7.5%
