3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle
A run of the mill wit beer is another solid release from Pike. Itís not a complicated style so it makes it hard to mask any flaws. Of course this release has none. On the contrary it makes a great $2.99 daily drinker for those days when the huge barleywine just isnít appealing.
Aroma / Appearance - Carbonated transparent bronze liquid bubbled around the glass with a stark white head its companion. Light cereal grains, citrus, and Belgian yeast are as light as a snowflake melting on the tongue. Simple and effective this is the prototypical Belgian table beer.
Flavor / Palate - Lemon, yeast, and mint play on the senses. Lasting for a minute or two they then fade away like the last traces of light at sunset. The finish is like chewing on a freshly cut piece of thyme. An excellent beer for the style Iím not sure how it could travel from coast to coast and still be the cheapest option on the shelf.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber. Slightly hazy orange-tan with a thin, oily white head. Some lemony-orange citrus tones, mild wheat. Delicate spicing, not overbearing. Medium bodied, refreshing, but not so zesty. A little dull, doesnít have any of the vanilla or big wheat tones I like in a Wit. Either way, itís a decent enough session beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dry is a very desriptive term here. The effervescence pulls all of the wetness off your toungue in a very apparent way. Bubbly and etnertaining. Otherwise everything else here is more pronounced and kicked up. Clove, banana, wheat are all there and working together nicely.

Golden pour with a little white head on it. Aroma of lemon and spice. Tastes light and refreshing. Really easy to drink. I could enjoy this on a hot summer day. Lots of coriander in the taste. I donít mind it.
