COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A not-so-traditional American Wheat Ale, Calypso provides an incredibly easy drinking beer with a hoppy kick that's sure to please. On a hot summer day, nothing will cleanse the palate better.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2005 More body than expected, more malty than expected, definitely more hop presence than expected. More parrots on the bottle than expected. Fairly non-descript in appearance, but I found nothing else to complain about.

Ernest (6260) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (lemon), lightly yeasty (sweat). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The acidity is partly the dull yeasty kind, but overall the balance is good.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Bright straw color with a a tall white head. Mild fresh hop and fresh mowed grass aroma. Sweet pale malt flavor. Semi-sharp mild white pepper finish. Actually not bad for a American Wheat.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2002
Very light golden in color. Huge head initially that quickly faded but left some nice lacing. Smells very un-wheatlike, in fact it was hard to dicipher anything but the cascades they use as finishing hops. Not a good wheat beer.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2002
Clear gold - obviously a filtered wheat. not much of the typical wheat flavor - must have been filtered out! This is more of a very light APA - but it does have some nice citrus and light hop flavor. Just a good thirst quencher.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2002
Clear straw-golden color. Watery and smooth up front. Rich and dry in the finish. Very light and gentle. Some bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Clean, without any off-flavors to complain about, just a little underwhelming... unfortunate for such a great brewery!

jazz88 (2558) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 27, 2002
Bottle. Almost a clear yellow but a large foamy white head. Some citrus and hop aroma. Not much flavor, dry, wheat, thing body.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 Very pale with a white head. Aroma is a little fruity with a touch of wheat. Thin body. Low hops. So-so brew.

nice frothy head, lively carbonation, not much in the aroma, slight citrusy flavor and a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. not too bad
