"Steer clear of the Sirens, their enchanting song, their meadow starred with flowers. Race straight past that coast! If you are bent on hearing, have your shipmates tie you hand and foot, lashed by ropes to the mast, so you can hear the Sirens’ song to your heart’s content…"
So the goddess Circe warned Odysseus to beware the Sirens’ song. This Siren Song carries the same mystical appeal… but, you know, without the threat of death.
The beer's deep, cherry red shines in the light, like the lips of the Sirens catching the sun. The call of the raspberry on the nose is irresistible, drawing you in to taste the ambrosia. It begins with powerful effervescence, churning in your mouth like the frothing waves that slap against the side of the boat. The enchanting tartness of the berries is the main melody of the song, with a touch of Brett earthiness, a little sweetness, and a hint of wood playing the harmonies.
It’s no wonder this beauty won a gold medal at the 2018 Australian International Beer Awards, even before going into the Chardonnay barrels. Lift this nectar to your lips, and enjoy the Siren Song to your heart’s content.
