Gonna try to let this condition in the keg as long as possible. If I need the keg and it is still tasting bad, I will dump it. Had a taste last night for the first time in a few days. Still bad but not as bad...haha

What possessed you to put Columbus in a wheat beer?
I would consider mixing it, but the suggestion to dump it isn't a bad one. I had to dump a batch, and while it hurt a little, in the end it was about $16 worth of ingredients and I'm not broke. Time counts for something, but again, I'm not broke for time either. After the little bit of sting, I just brewed another batch and moved on.
I got past the "I don't want to dump any of my beer" stage pretty quick, and I'm much better for it. Sure, you could try to blend it, and you might even make a decent beer. But, wouldn't you rather brew 5 gallons of something you want to brew instead of trying to fix something that's broken? Otherwise you've just dedicated 2 brew days and batches to an iffy beer. Sounds like throwing good money after bad to me.
If you really want to try to "fix" that beer, I say dump the batch you have and rebrew a new version of the recipe that is closer to what you want. You'll get a lot more out of it in the end.
Think about mashing fairly high (158ish) so it doesn't attenuate too much. I think that's a big key for session beers.
I just did a light hoppy sort of summer ale with IIRC 30% munich 10L to 78% 2 row and 2% crystal 45 it turned out well. still malty but just enough to balance the hops.
