ABV: 5.2% | IBUS: 20 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“This Amer­i­can take on the Bel­gian Clas­sic Wit, fea­tur­ing orange peel and co­rian­der spice. Priscilla’s zesty cit­rus and light fresh baked bread aro­mas mix with spicy, fruity fer­men­ta­tion.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Gen­tle wheat pres­ence, bready and bal­anced, then orange peel and orange cream­si­cle emerge, along with some le­mon es­ters and fruity es­ters. Co­rian­der and flo­ral come through on the retronasal, and gen­tle ba­nana notes ap­pear as the beer warms.” Fla­vor: “Starts with a rich, bready wheat and a touch of sweet­ness that gives way to a blend of cit­rus and pep­pery phe­nols. In­cred­i­bly fruity, with water­melon, bub­blegum, cherry, and orange, bal­anc­ing su­perbly with the spicy, pep­pery phe­nols and co­rian­der. The soft body and the car­bon­a­tion per­fectly heighten the fla­vors. The dry fin­ish makes you want an­other sip.” Over­all: “Ev­ery­thing is bal­anced, solid, and sim­ple—it’s rich com­pared to other wits out there, and the touch of sweet­ness is a nice ac­cent. It’s what you want and what you de­serve in a wit beer.”
