Dry and crisp with a honey-like aroma, fruity taste and clean aftertaste. Pike Dry Wit is a superb summer beer which we encourage you to garnish with a slice of fruit, like an orange or peach. This beer has a very light mouthfeel due to wheat in the grain bill. Pike Dry Wit is traditionally spiced with coriander, orange peel and a touch of lavender.

22 ounce bottle from Total Wine, Norfolk, VA, opened 7/20/11. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a medium sized creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of faint citrus notes. The taste is tart lime, other citrus notes, faint wheat and a spicy finish. Thin, slightly watery.

Tap @ brewpub. Slightly hazy, yellow appearance with a white head. Coriander spicy, belgian yeasty, light wheat malty nose. Quite spicy, light wheat malty flavor with a dry finish. Quite spicy beer but enjoyable.

Light and refreshing but without any particular distinction. Pours cloudy and with some head. Palate is light without much fruit or spine. Finishes clean and refreshing.

22 oz from PCC. Not usually a big fan of wits, but this one seems very drinkable. Typical ester aromas that smell like banana Runts. Taste is crisp. Lots of carbonation, but it doesn’t foam over in your mouth. Looks like Blue Moon. Bomber is too much because the beer flattens out if left out too long. A pint at the brewery would be perfect.

22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Slips out a clear, golden-hued body with a plentifully-sized, sudsy, white head. Smell: A by no means gushing base maltiness in the nose, smelling lightly of crisped wheat spread over by a single sugar packet. A little note of lemonade and orange juice. The nose offers up slightly spicy, gently floral elements here and there. Taste: Light touches of pale malted barley and wheat with a soft sweetness and hint of grain, yielding an accent of graham cracker. More light qualities of lemony hops along with a hint of orange. Lightly bitter, though still fairly substantial for a wit. Soft floral qualities, delivering just a teensy bit of lavender very late in the taste. Earthy, passably spicy coriander seed flavor. Finishes reasonably dry and fairly clean, though a smidge of spice does linger. Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: An above-average wit, I say! A sufficient, satisfying summertime refresher on a muggy, miserable Georgia day in July.

Really interesting tangy, earthy aroma with a definite barnyard element that I wasn’t expecting. Hazy medium yellow with a thin but persistent white head. Honey, coriander (and maybe ginger) and lemon pop out with some of that barnyard sourness in the back but much lighter than expected from the aroma. Leaves a light dry bitterness in the aftertaste which is the only evidence of hops at all. A light refreshing summer beer with really interesting and intense components that set it apart from the other easier drinking summer beers.

From a bottle poured a hazy straw color with a fair amount of head. Light spicy malty flavor with a quick finish,

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2011
22oz bottle, white label. Golden pour, unfiltered muck at the bottom of the bottle. Scent of yeast, wheat, and citrus hops. Flavor of rich grain, gourmet popcorn (un-buttered), and a bit of spices. Smooth, perfect for summer heat. So refreshing. I may get this one again, being my favorite of these Pike bottles I tried so far.

spicy on the nose, lots of herbs including rosemary, white pepper, coriander and a hint of mint. lots of fizziness. the dryness gives off a good flavor that makes a fine complement to any meal.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 The aroma is not all that dry with wheat, yeast, malt, bananas, and citrus hops. The appearance is hazy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of spice. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is a good beer with no problems.
