Saison Athene is a bottle conditioned saison brewed with chamomile, fresh rosemary and black pepper. A dose of wild yeast at bottling adds to the complexity.

Aroma is basement funk, really old and rustic nose, color is foggy unfiltered gold with light lace, flavor is funk and added spices, black pepper really stands out in the flavor, body is light and the finish is super dry, the brett obviously had plenty of time to chew this guy down to 1. Interesting saison, i would recommend it to anyone who can appreciate a wild ale.

750 ml bottle. Pours clear gold colour with copious white head. Final pour was cloudy. Lots of chunks at the bottom of the bottle. Nose is large Belgian barnyard funk, which follows through on the taste. There is lime peel, really refreshing with a short-medium herbal, minty slightly bitter finish. I don;t taste much of the spices, maybe some slight rosemary. This is a really good saison.

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange. Aroma of green leaves, pepper, pepto bismol, massive barnyard funk. Taste is tart and sweet. Effervescent, and a bit mulchy.

This poured a light orange with a white head. Aroma is of poop diapers and skunk. Flavor is much better, light funk, citrus, earth and light skunk. Me.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a completely transparent lighter gold with foamy white head. Smells solid too; a nice balance of yeast and spice with mild notes of chamomile. You get a touch of the wild yeast in there as well. Tastes like it smells with a nice medium-bodied mouthfeel that’s on the dryer side. A good example of the style.

Cellar aged a couple years out of laziness. Cloudy off orange pour small white head. Herby aroma hints of lemon grass and white pepper. Avg palate. Nice mellow slightly sweet flavor. Good stuff.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Rated on 8-23-10 (2008 corked and caged bottle) This beer has a large very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent bright as the sun body, and a fair amount of lacing. The aromas are malt, yeast, sweet, fruity, and spice. The taste is sweet, spicy, fruity, yeasty, and a little funky tasting but in a good way. The palate is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this is an easy drinking beer and is refreshing on a summer day. It is worth trying as the flavors blend together nicely and it is a beer I would drink again.

Saint Somewhere Saison Athene is perfectly balanced to provide a unique saison experience that can’t be beat. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Pour is a cloudy orange-yellow with an effervescent white head. Taste is nothing short of a treat -- orange-lemon flavor with a bit of floral and peppery notes and just enough sourness to make it interesting (but not overpowering.) Athene lingers pleasantly on the palate. I think Saint Somewhere makes some of the best saisons in the world and I am lucky to have them somewhat local here in Florida. Athene definitely lives up to that expectation.

(StLCoB tasting) gold. Tart aroma. Flavor was more sour than Saison spice.
