Pours hazy deep gold into a tumbler. Bright white head quickly recedes to skim surface. Sour peach aromas. Sweet, medium caramel upfront turning to sour summer fruits in the dry, lasting finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light straw-gold with a smallish head. Bubble gum and banana, with pepper and some citrus on the nose. Somewhat dilute flavor of mild hops and fruits - this one certainly isnít dry. In fact itís almost a quencher. Good summer brew, sure - but Iím wary of any brew that has a suggested serving with a fruit garnish. This isnít up to Pikeís normal caliber.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a loose white filmy head. Mild, lightly spicy nose, just the faintest hints of coriander and orange on the nose along with some fairly subdued honey notes. Medium body, a bit watery in spots, probably a little undercarbonated, especially for the style. Caramel and toast on the mid palate, bits of honey, some very light spicing. Super restrained beer throughout.

Had this twice now on random occasions...decent wit style brew from Pike. A bit wet for my tastes, surprisingly, as the label is listed as being "dry". Not as much of an impact flavor punch, but the zest of a nice wit on a summer day is definitely there. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
LIght and thin, would pair nicely with goat cheese. Bomber pours a cloudy honey golden with a thin white foam and slight lacing. Faint aroma of straw, white grapes, flowers, and a little bit of barnyard funk. MIld taste of coriander, fresh wheat, and Belgian yeast. A bit of a dry finish, like crabapple, but not very pronounced. An easy drinking, simple summer brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Soft wheaty aroma, earth, soft spice, even a little dank. Pours hazy light golden, no head or lace. Wheat, citrus, ginger, soft yeast, not much else. Lingering ginger wheaty finish. Light, well made, uninteresting.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bronze glow with a lacy head. Piquant nose redolent with Pacific Northwest scents...salmon, ginger, grains of paradise, zesty and vivacious. Heaven-scent smells. Musky wheaty body boosted with coriander and ginger and alligator pepper/grains of paradise. An exquisite, refreshing, flavorful, and deliciously complex wit. Truly a best in class candidate for the style. No contest, this should claim perennial seasonal status, a truly superior example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Caskfest. Hazy gold pour with a large white head. Has a slightly tart orange creamsicle aroma with coriander spiciness. This is a pretty nice little wit: citrusy orange flavor, light vanilla notes, coriander, light toasty wheat. Refreshing and tasty.
