Three Skulls Ales in Seattle, WA is an offshoot of Baron Brewing LLC. Three Skulls was created to brew beers other than the traditional german style beers regularly brewed at Baron Brewing. Both my wife and I are fans of Witbiers so we thought that we would give the Three Skulls Blood Orange Wit a shot.
This beer pours an uber cloudy, straw yellow with a very minimal head. The typical wit aromas of citrus, coriander, and yeast are present, with a little bit of peppery spice as well. As far as flavors go, there are the expected flavors of soft grainy wheat, coriander, light spices, and just a hint of acidic orange. The blood orange flavors are actually very suppressed, and if it didn’t say so on the bottle, I’m not sure I would even notice them. The wit is heavily carbed, but overall has a fairly thin mouthfeel. While this is not a beer to write home about in the least, It would make a good thirst quencher on a hot summer afternoon. Cheers!
