Saison Athene pours cloudy, yellow-gold with a frothy, white head that clings to the glass as it dissipates. Light, grainy malt scents take center stage, but are backed by a chorus of soft, fragrant pears and fresh-cracked pepper. The first sip is honey-sweet; bready malted barley and tart wheat flavors slide over the tongue. Hops march in with bold, peppery spice and bitterness. While the texture is chewy, the effervescence and mild alcohol warmth culminate in a dry, crisp finish.
