Priscilla WheatPriscilla Wheat

Brewed by:
Oskar Blues Grill & Brew
Colorado, United States | website

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

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.

Pours an effervescent honey color with 1 finger of ivory head. Pretty good head retention & better lacing

S: Rubber band & phenols

T: Follows the nose, a little coriander as well up front. Some breadyness breaks through as this warms, more Band-Aid & a little dryness once warm. Finishes with a little dryness & phenol

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation

True to the style & pretty drinkable

On tap at South Park Tavern, Dayton OH. Served in a nonic glass.

Appearance: Pale gold, mostly clear with a slight level of haze. Thin white head with thick sheets of persistent lacing.

Smell: Grainy. Faint herbal leafy hop smell. Some coriander.

Taste: Wheat tang, bready. Light herbal hop. Definite coriander but mild orange citrus peel flavor.

Mouthfeel: Very chewy. Brisk carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: Probably one of the least hoppy beers I've ever had from Oskar Blues. A good example of the style, with more of an emphasis on the wheat and coriander than anything else. I was fine with a pint - I didn't want more.

First had: on tap at Oskar Blues, Longmont, CO

A nice, hazy, yellow wheat beer from Oskar Blues, capped off with a nice fluffy white head. Citrusy aroma, wheat, with a dash of spice. Typical wheat taste, not at all harsh, mildly acidic, yeasty, with notes of peppery spice and citrus zest. Light and very smooth, more so than many wheat beers. Refreshing and drinkable.

Served on-draught into a weissbeer glass at Liquids and Solids. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were fairly high.

A: Pours a half finger thin biege colour head of no cream and bad retention. Colour is a hazy cloudy lemonade yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Lemon, bright wheat, clean barley, and light citrusy hops. A mild to moderate strength aroma.

T: Lemon over a wheat base with clean malts and light citruys hops. Clean and somewhat refreshing. Simple but enjoyable. Not particularly subtle, but nicely balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Light on the palate. Adequate carbonation. Suits the flavour profile decently.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. Somewhat refreshing. Overpriced, at least on draught. I wouldn't get it again. Its simplicity holds it back. One of Oskar Blues' more inferior offerings.

Served On-Tap @ OB Lyons

A — Pours a hazy and bright banana yellow hue into the glass. There is a semi-tall white colored head that sits on top and leaves behind some quality lacing with each sip. Shaker pint may not have been the best choice here, but alas.

S — Smell is more Belgian Wit than anything, there is a resounding banana and clove note that often resonates with the style. Quite yeasty and bright overall.

T — Taste is driven by lemon, banana, clove, wheat, Belgian Wit yeast, it is bright, lightly estery, and overall nice.

M — Medium bodied, fairly light overall though, just a bit of residual sweetness.

O — Good overall, I wouldn't know this was brewed by OB unless you had told me so, somewhat out of their comfort zone, but very well done.

I'm just not a fan of the style. OB does it great though. Clove and banana flavors just don't belong in a beer, but that's 'just like, [my] opinion, man'. OB makes some great beers and this one is (probably) spot on for the style.

Pours a very nice slightly hazy pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, with some minimal sticky lacing. The nose is pretty nice malty, yeasty, with some pretty nice clove, banana notes. The taste is very nice malty, yeasty, with some cloves, bananas, some spice notes. Medium body. Overall, a very nice take on the style.

On tap at Oskar Blues in Lyons, CO.

Pours a murky light orange color with a 1/2 inch white head that fades to an oily fim. Random clumps of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, spices, and a nice orange/citrus aroma. Taste is very good with wheat, mild spices, and a delicious orange/citrus flavor. This beer has high carbonation and a crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good tasty wheat beer from Oskar Blues. I am glad I got to try this one as this is nowhere to be found in CA.
