Calabaza Blanca

$2.49, Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. 12oz bottle.

Annoying huge head that eventually falls back to something managable and sensible. Some lacing. Great color – a hazed, clouded bright yellow, like a top quality Hefe or better. Nice looking pour.

Aroma and tstes give the JP signature acid/funk. OK, now I am beginning to lose some patience with the brewery. This is nothing like a contemporary Wit, and to describe it as such is plain misleading. I like the taste of the beer with that typical West Country (England) farmhouse cider twang, but this is totally out of the modern Belgian Wit style. Perhaps it IS true to some traditional Wit, but for now this is not what I want to purchase when the label says Wit, hence, although I like it, I still took significant points off.

JP appears to be an off the wall brewery to say the least. Right now I have no handle, I guess I have to keep trying!
