Creature Comforts Brewery Athena Paradiso

What the brewers say

“Athena Paradiso is our fruited treatment of Athena. This version is a bright pink color with cranberry adding some acidity and the raspberry flavor balancing out the beer with a bit of sweetness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big cherry aroma up front that settles into a nice raspberry aroma similar to a lightly sweetened jam. Some cranberry, but berries dominate the nose. Slight tartness, but it’s difficult to identify whether it comes from the beer or the fruit additions.”

Flavor: “Starts with big raspberries and cherries and a touch of sweetness that flow into tart cranberries with a very dry finish. Nice tannins from the fruit. Maybe could use just a touch more body, and some more malt complexity might help this beer carry the berry complexity into the finish.”

Overall: “Fun beer with a delicate complexity of fruit with sweetness and tartness and a beautiful color. It stayed light and refreshing while ushering in some nice berry tartness and sweetness, but it lacked real complexity.”
