Saint Somewhere Saison Athene
I ordered a glass of Saint Somewhere Saison Athene at Brass Rail in Campbelltown. The beer pours a yellow golden color with a foamy and sticky white head. The aroma consists of pepper, orange, and pear. The taste is vibrant and fresh with lots of pear, apple, and orange. It has a dry finish with some rosemary accents. As far as mouth feel, the Saison Athene is nice and carbonated and is light on the tongue. The alcohol content is 7.5% ABV. I thought that the Saison Athene was an amazing beer and very well equipped to refresh on a hot summer day. It is a light drinker and light on the tongue, but packs a good fruit punch and a nice spicy finish of rosemary.
