COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spring! A time of renewal. Renew your taste buds with our “California style” Spring Beer, a unique fusion of a hoppy wheat beer brewed with a blended fermentation of Belgian and American yeast. Pours a hazy gold with a thick, white head. Floral hop aromas abound, complemented by the taste of tangy wheat and spicy Belgian yeast notes with a bitter, slightly sweet, bready finish. Additional Information: For our first Seasonal 4-pack, we decided to create something one of a kind. This beer was fermented in two separate batches, one using a traditional American Ale yeast and the other using a Belgian Wit yeast. The two finished beers were then blended to create an extra layer of complexity and flavor. We also used two new hop varieties: Bravo & Calypso. These hops add a wonderful tropical fruit and pear character to our CSB.

Bottle from Bine and Vine. Pours hazy light golden amber with a slight frothy white head. Aroma is light fruit with a citrus background. Approaching med body. Flavor is wheaty, with some mixed light fruits including citrus. There’s a little spice, and there’s a mild earthiness. Nice, but hard to pin down on style. Seems like there’s too much here to just label it "wheat". For me it finishes a little dusty and dry.

This beer pours cloudy gold. It has a mild citrusy hop aroma. It is rather mild with a hint a bitterness in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

13th March 2014: in my second flight at the Back Bay Bar (inside Wholefoods, Newport Beach). Slight mistiness to the old gold colour with a white head.Refreshing and interesting. Vanilla and honey melon came to mind as I sniffed and sipped the brew. I’m not a huge fan of wheat beers, but this was fine and sat apart from the other beers I tried during a pretty boozy day (the others being mostly high alcohol or hop laden).

Pour is a hazy copper orange with a beige head and larger bubbles throughout. Nose is faint, light herbal and citrus notes, fair spice with light yeast and banana notes. Taste is a bit muted, decent coriander spice and lemony banana notes, light hop finish herbal and citrus. Assertive carbonation, oily slick feel, syrupy and heavy on the tongue and incredibly short finish.

Hazy orange with a chunky one-finger head and decent lace. Aromas of banana, orange, mint and tea. Flavors are similar, highlighted by orange peel with a touch of yeast. Light body, effervescent, and a dry finish.
