Caliente means “hot” in Spanish. That is, temperature hot and not spicy hot. It isn’t clear exactly why this particular variety was named that but it appears to be reasonably well received by the craft brew market featuring in quite a few commercial brews to date. There is some difference of opinion on it’s exact tasting notes but it has been said to impart flavors of citrus, peach, pine and even cherry along with distinct aromas of stone fruit and mandarin. Subtle aromas of peach have also been documented.
