Priscilla White Wit WheatPriscilla White Wit Wheat
Notes: 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.

Pours a straw color with a huge head of over two fingers. The nose has notes of wheat but also something astringent. The foundation of the flavor profile is hearty wheat but there is the obligatory coriander note as well. This offering is low on the funk scale. The body is more full than most wits.

Non-traditional, which is probably why I enjoyed it.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint apricot + honey colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat malts with a hint of caramel sweetness along with moderate aromas of clove, citrus/orange, and coriander.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of wheat malts with a light amount of caramel malts and a touch of sweetness. There is a light to moderate flavor of Belgian yeast with light to moderate flavors of clove, citrus/orange, and coriander. Light lingering flavors from the yeast. Minimal amount of bitterness and no discernible hop presence.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy and chewy.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing with well hidden alcohol.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear yellow-golden body, white fizzy head, plenty of quick bubbles, islands of lace. Smell has lots of pepper, bready yeast, and a touch of grass. Almost verging on spicy hops. The flavor contains the same, but with an even more overbearing presence of white pepper. The bread crust, yeast, spice, and herbal notes (similar to bay leaf) are washed out. Quite far into Belgian yeast territory, without the grace. Body is quite fizzy with abrasive carbonation, light.
Not an unpleasant brew, but apart from the hot pink can a forgettable one. Seems like a lot of American brewers got their hands on the real deal Belgian yeast and can't seem to restrain it quite like the natives can.

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.

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.

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.

12oz. can poured to tulip

Pours crystal clear gold, with 2 fingers of white head that quickly clears to just a ring

Nose is primarily yeast notes and coriander, some breadiness

Flavor is sweet and spicy. Coriander, clove and pepper notes swirl around with citrus and sweet breakfast pastry.

Body is light but mouthfeel a little slick

Overall a very nice tasting, specacularly pretty wit that doesn't deviate from the stylistic guidelines

From the 12 oz can in a snifter. this decent little wit pours a nice
lightly cloudy golden straw with a very nice head of white foam that
lingers long and fades slowly to a thick ring, thin light pool, and features
nice light lacing. Nose of soft wheat bread, light floral notes, honey,
and subtle esters from the yeast. Flavors follow but lightly exceed by
presentation with soft wheat and honey mingling with light notes of banana
and honey melon with a light herbal hop note on the finish. Nice mouth feel;
medium light body, smooth, medium light carbonation, and a lightly dry
cracker finish.

Overall, it is a solid little wit.
