Oskar Blues Launches Priscilla in Cans Year-Round

Oskar Blues Priscilla White Wit Wheat

Oskar Blues has announced a new addition to its canned year-round lineup. Priscilla White Wit Wheat is a wheat beer brewed with coriander and orange peel, mixing bready, spicy and floral flavors and aromas throughout.

The beer has been available on draft for over a decade, but this marks the first time the beer will be distributed in cans.

The beer will launch in June in all 50 states.

Here is the release from Oskar Blues:

Longmont, CO & Brevard, NC & Austin, TX - Oskar Blues Brewery, the brewery that launched the craft beer-in-a-can apocalypse in 2002, announces the national launch of an AmeriCAN take on the Belgian Classic Wit, Priscilla White Wit Wheat. It's a Belgian White, Belgian Wit, Belgian's a White Wit Wheat (5.2% ABV, 20 IBUs). 

The beer, which features orange peel and coriander spice, emanated from the basement blues music legacy Dave McIntyre (18 year Oskar Bluesologist) 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.

"Priscilla is a beer steeped in Oskar Blues' music history," said Chad Melis. "A longtime Oskar Blues favorite, we've decided its time to bring this amped up, electric brew from the basement and to the masses."   

Oskar Blues, named "The hottest place to be on a Saturday night in Colorado" by Rolling Stone because of its roots in the Colorado music scene, will brew its first batch of Dale's Pale Ale at their new brewery and taproom in Austin, TX today. The brewery will continue its tradition of soul-savin' live music with a music venue as part of the Austin taproom.

Priscilla White Wit Wheat will launch throughout the month of June in all 50 states where Oskar Blues is sold and will be available in 12oz. 6-packs and draft.
