COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Come warm up today in our Tasting Room with a little taste of Paradise. We are tapping Athena Paradiso with tart cherry, raspberry, & cranberry. Athena Paradiso is our fruited treatment of Athena, so it comes in at about 4.5% ABV. This version is a bright pink color with cranberry adding some acidity and the cherry and raspberry flavors balancing out the beer with a bit of sweetness. We have made several versions of this beer, but this is quickly becoming a fan and brewery favorite!

neongolden (2075) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2017
(Can pour @ MBCC 2017 Yellow Session, Copenhagen) Pours pink-red with a white head. Notes of raspberry and mixed tart red berries, touch of obvious cherry character, lemon yoghurt, hints of wheat, lightly tart with a hint of berry sweetness. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, refreshing and pretty clean. Solid fruited Berliner if up against some strong competition at the festival.

Can, courtesy of Koelschtrinker. Pours lightly cloudy orange/salmon with a low head. Aroma is cherries, cranberry and raspberry indeed. Not citrus or grapes left anymore from the original Athena. Body is medium, displaying the added fruit clearly but also in a good balanced. Carbonation is soft but still there without stealing the show. Light acidity and tartness. Very easy to drink and quite refreshing, despite having quite a healthy sweetness. Again, similar to a good soft drink. Good!

jc1762 (1693) - JAPAN - JUL 13, 2017
Can into a snifter showing cranberry red with a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a sweet juicy raspberry forwardness with light notes of tart cherry. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated but foamy with an airy mouthfeel. The palate is lightly tart with fruit forward flavors of raspberry and subtle hints of cranberry and tart cherry. Strong acidity on the attack. Light brine balances out the tartness with the fruit forward flavors in combination with the airy carbonation. Although lactose is added, the sweetness is barely noticeable and the beer still remains dry. A fantastic brew.
