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.

Food pairing
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
ABV: 6.5%

On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. A rich of citrus on the nose, soft musk,a bit of fruit. Medium bodied, soft and light, gently acidic, soft fruit, light citrus and lemon. Clean and easy, nice musk and citrus with some dusty hops over gentle bitterness.

Pours a cloudy light golden with a short-lived dull white head. Subdued sour nose. Full mouthfeel. Somewhat astringent. Moderately sour with increasing acidity.

Not much aroma. Hazy golden color. Really good sour flavor that takes a second to notice, but is strong. Isn't too taxing on your palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes of salty lemon build sharply and fade quickly to a grainy, lager-like finish without a real lasting sourness or bitterness. A refreshing summer lemonade. Not my personal favorite sour (the dry hop makes it a little too lager-like which I’m not a fan of) but the flavor build is interesting and I see why it’s appreciated.

oobawa (1859) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Tasty, tasty sour, big and citric and tart with a lovely interplay between the intense yeasty/lacto sourness and the bright orange from the mandarinas. Slight toasted grain underneath the tart front, and a firm bitterness shores up the finish. Modest funk pops up on the fade. Good beer.

Love this beer. One of my favorite dry hopes sour beers. First 90 degree day and I had one of these by the pool - it's that kind of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
