Oskar Blues Grill & Brew
Colorado, United States
oskarblues.com

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This AmeriCAN take on the Belgian Classic Wit, featuring orange peel and coriander spice emanated from the basement blues music legacy Dave McIntyre (Oskar Blusologist) built at the original Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons, CO. On draft for over a decade, Priscilla's zesty citrus and light fresh baked bread aromas mix with spicy, fruity fermentation. Light bodied with a subtle savory spice accent and a dry, lightly tart finish you can nearly feel the flicker of the neon and sounds of the King. White Wit Wheat.

Poured into a mug, the appearance was a semi-ruddy/burnt yellow color with a thin finger’s worth of white foamy head that sustains nicely and ends up dissipating at a nice pace. Moderate carbonation could be seen rising. The aroma has a sweet wheaty, semi-citrusy, low spicy (coriander-esque), Belgian yeasty esters and then a touch of bubblegum. The flavor leans sweetly through the previous mention of those aromas and the coriander seems to only compliment nicely. Clean sweet wheaty biting / semi-bubblegum sort of aftertaste sliding into a quick wet sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation feels fairly low. Nice crisp wheatiness lays down on the tongue. Overall, another witbier by an American brewer coming to what I say "session standards." Good for what it is and I would prefer to have again in the Summer, but honestly, doesn’t compare to it’s Belgian counterparts. Though, I could have again for me.

I'm a fan of Wits. This one pours a typical golden beer color with a large white head and lacing. A yeast and bread smell turns into a citrus and coriander flavor. A little more carbonation than I like but not bad. Overall I'd buy again.

L: gold with a slight haze under a thin white cap with poor retention.

S: The aroma is medium low with traces of bread crumb, orange peel and coriander. Fermentation aromas are low.

T: The flavors have some fruit - citrus and orange peel leading to a slight tartness on the finish. A medium sweet start finishes juicy.

F: Medium light body and medium high carbonation.

O: Light refreshing beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "canned on" date 9-9-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, straw color with less than one-finger white head that dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is some lacing on the glass, lighter than average carbonation.

SMELL: banana bread and lemon citrus, very pleasant to the nose.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially banana and bread then a lemon citrus note and some spice at the end.

PALATE: medium body and lighter carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a fine wit beer, I would buy this again no problem and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

Trade with Marty.
Canned 6/24/16. Stored at 42 degrees. Served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma – Yeast and spice, fades but still noticeable at the end.
Head – large (maximum four cm, aggressive pour), white, fizzy, high density but low retention – gone in less than two minutes leaving a one to two mm ring and a very thin partial layer.
Lacing – none.
Body – light yellow with a bit of chill haze which quickly clears.
Flavor – begins slightly sour with a bit of apple cider taste. Very slight yeasty taste, some spice. No malt, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – light, watery, fizzy.

Seems a bit over carbonated but otherwise a passable (probably inexpensive) wit.

Appearance 3.75, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.5.

COD 8/11/16. Clear golden pour. Quite outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.

Very good classic wit nose. Fresh light tangy impression with a bit of lemon citrus coupled with a slightly sweet bready / yeasty base. Rounding it off is a bit of clove and coriander.

Heavy light body with a hint of slickness. World class carbonation / body balance. Lively effervescence begins in the middle and never lets up. The finish is finely bubbled and culminates in a prickly rush.

The flavor profile is very good. Overall it is very well balanced but lacks the intensity and complexity to achieve outstanding status. The flavors of the nose are present but only clove really ever takes center stage. Orange, rather than lemon, is the strongest fruit presence. From the middle on, clove takes command and lingers after the tart and slightly dry finish.

More flavor intensity and contrast (sweetness) would really improve this beer. The base is very good but just lacks the wow factor. Tweak the recipe and OB will have a solid chance for an outstanding beer.
