A plum sour with a light mouth feel that finishes very clean. Can really taste the fruit and tartness. I could drink a ton of these on a warm day.

One of my favorite new local beers. Nice (but not overpowering) sour note and something you can drink a few of. It's a beer nerd's version of a lake or beach beer. Very drinkable. And coming out in CANS!

Got 12 oz can in trade and poured in to Ommegang chalice

A- Pours a cloudy, watery-golden looking color and produced a massive billowy head that quickly dissipated.
S- barnyard and sour fruits
T- follows the nose with the fruits becoming a bit clearer. Plum, persimmon and a slight hint of citrus with a tad bit of barnyard muskiness. Prominent saison yeast taste with very little on hop bitterness.
M- Fairly heavy feel and lightly carbonated.
O- what a nice surprise. This beer, though a tad on the tart side, is highly chuggable. Each sip got better and would definitely seek out more from Orpheus.

Draft from the Orpheus inaugural tasting and tour session at their Atlanta brewery 5/26/14.

A: Beautiful golden murkiness

S: Moderate smell with a little bit of earthiness and bread

T: Straightforward but delicious. It has a light sour note and a light fruit note. Quaffable.

M: Perfect carbonation, light bodied

O: This is a very solid flagship and seems to foreshadow great things to come for a brewery that is partial to saisons, sours, fruit treatments, and barrel treatments.
