(COOPERSTOWN, NY) Brewery Ommegang is proud to announce the release of Sirens’ Song, a dark ale brewed with figs and raisins and the brewery’s latest limited edition offering. Named for the enchanting melodies that fabled sirens used to lure in weary sailors, 9% ABV Sirens’ Song will draw in beer fans to explore uncharted imbibing territory.

“Belgian-style dark ales are a treat to drink,” says Ommegang’s Innovation Manager Justin Forsythe, who developed the recipe. “Sirens’ Song is brewed with dark Belgian candi syrup to impart decadent notes of dark fruit & burnt sugar, and also brewed with raisins and figs in order to compliment the rich, fruity character of this dark ale. It’s a wonderful wintertime treat, or a beer to age for years to come.”

The mahogany colored ale has with a thick, creamy tan head and distinct lacing. Aromas of roasted malt and dark fruit are pronounced. The flavor begins with sweetness and caramel notes and finishes smooth with lingering hints of caramelized sugar and balanced bitterness.

Brewed with pilsner, midnight wheat, and soft red wheat malts, Sirens’ Song is hopped with noble varieties for balanced hopping. The figs and raisins used in brewing not only add to the complexity of the beer but also represent cargo lost to the sea because of the bewitching sirens’ songs.

Pairing suggestions include grilled meats and BBQ, smoked salmon or trout, and rich cheeses like blue cheese and cheddar. Available soon for a limited time in 12 oz. four-packs and on draft.
