4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A couple four packs that were picked up from the brewery after Coachella, weekend two. Slightly hazy yellow gold with a one finger off-white head, pretty good retention. Definitely has some wit-like yeast esters, along with plenty of crisp wheat notes.I’d also like to add some pear and light tropical fruit (the description does not lie). I’ve had a Bravo hopped Russian River beer many years ago (like 4-5), but never Calypso. Flavor continues with the wheat and pear dominating, some wit esters following, and some added grain and light toasted biscuit malt (not to be confused with brown ale toastiness). Dry crisp wheat finish, bitterness at a 2 or so. Light smooth carbonation with a light to medium body. A fantastic seasonal (quite sessionable) that goes down great as well as breaking the mold a bit. Dunno why this had to be in four packs as opposed to six, and for about the same price as Orange Wheat, IIRC. One of the most underrated breweries out there.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours cloudy amber with a decent beige head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with some spice and a strange wheat finish. Quite unusual.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce thanks to Jose. Not exactly a wheat beer since it tastes like an IPA with big malty and caramel flavors. Dry finish. I don’t know how much the hops used here differ from the Columbus IPA. Feels like a similar beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden orange with a thin off white head which fades to thin, soapy lacing. Aroma is of light snd is Belgian yeast, citrus, and bready wheat bread. Taste is more robust then the aroma and is of belgian yeast, citrus, cloves, banana, spices, baked bread, apricots, wheat, and mild hop bitterness. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a dry, slighty bitter, refreshing finish. Overall, a pretty tasty and drinkable spring sessional then seem like a hybrid between pale ale and a Belgian wheat ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a golden blonde with a slight haze to it while a delicate layer of foam cap developed but quickly retreated. Aroma is mild with scents of hops and green citrus tress that have yet to produce fruit. The flavor is somewhat bland with light notes of butter and toffee. Also has a finish of bitter hops that hint towards a taste of citrus. Decent spring wheat but I am glad I caught this 4-pack on sale $6.99 instead of the original $8.99 price.
