Target Clientele

Translated from Latin, ‘Dulcis Succubus’ means a sweet succubus, a female demon appearing in dreams who takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce men. She is both dreaded and desired… There you go, you have been warned: once you taste it, you will be asking for it … for eternity. This beer is intended for sour candy lovers, dreamers and epicures ready to sell their soul to be forever indulged in beauty.
