Brewery Ommegang of Cooperstown, N.Y. has started shipping a new limited edition named after the “enchanting melodies that fabled sirens used to lure in weary sailors.”
The new beer is appropriately named Siren’s Song, a 9 percent ABV Belgian-style dark ale brewed with figs and raisins as well as pilsner, midnight wheat and soft red wheat malts.
“Belgian-style dark ales are a treat to drink,” said Justin Forsythe, innovation manager at Ommegang, in a post on the brewery’s website. “Sirens’ Song is brewed with dark Belgian candi syrup to impart decadent notes of dark fruit and burnt sugar, and also brewed with raisins and figs in order to compliment the rich, fruity character of this dark ale.”
According to Ommegang, Siron’s Song is packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles that are shipping to the 28 states in in the brewery’s distribution footprint now.
