Orpheus Brewing, Atlanta, GA
In the heroine Atalanta, we see the traits of what we aim for in all of our beers: piquant, deceptively robust, and a bit wild. A tart plum saison, Atalanta tastes of plums intermingling with spicy yeast, and a refreshing tartness that makes Atalanta as good for pairing with food as by itself.
Atalanta is a light hazy gold with a light nose, kind of sour. Almost smells like a wine. It tastes sour, then has a wheaty aftertaste. It is very tart and sour. This is more like a sour than a saison. We like it the more we drink it!
Would we have it again? Yes – even Large Marge likes it!
6 pack? Nah, Father Jack would rather get Duchesse de Bourgogne
