Priscilla White Wit Wheat, a doozy of a name. Mind you, Oskar Blues is the same brewery that brings you Fugli, so make of that what you will. This is the third Oskar Blues brew I’ve tried, and so far they’re 1/2 in my book. As you probably know by now, hops and I have a tolerate and hate relationship most of the time. Dale’s Pale Ale was too much for me (full review coming soon enough). Fugli was a great brew because it balanced sweetness with the hops, creating a pleasant flavor throughout. But as a MASSIVE fan of witbier, I was excited to try out Priscilla White Wit Wheat.
Priscilla White Wit Wheat has a slightly hazy, pale appearance that’s fairly typical of a witbier. It is mildly carbonated and builds a medium head when poured into a glass. The subtle, wheat-y tones of many witbiers, such as EOS and Paulaner, is present.
Flavor wise, Priscilla is a solid, yet fairly standard wheat beer. Its smooth, fluffy texture carries a non-threatening profile, with a very slight bitterness. The taste goes down easy and makes for a very enjoyable brew. The aftertaste holds the profile for a short period of time, maintaining a crisp bitterness. As is to be expected, the smooth wheat-y flavor is fairly consistent from start to finish.
As with many wheat beers, Priscilla’s beer is a simple example of what you see is what you get. In the grand scheme of things, this is a pretty solid brew, but it’s not overly remarkable. I would place it in the “better” echelon of wheat beers but not quite at the top. In saying that, it’s worth trying and you likely won’t be disappointed. Just don’t expect this beer to rock your world. I guess that gives Oskar Blues 2/3 in my book.
Oskar Blue’s Priscilla White Wit Wheat is a nice brew. It’s definitely enjoyable, but likely wont leave you gobsmacked. I would recommend picking this up, just don’t expect to be overly wowed. All in all a good choice.
