COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Turbid (cloudy) spun-gold brew with excellent head retention. Dry and crisp with a honey-like aroma, fruity taste and clean aftertaste. A superb summer beer garnished with a slice of fruit, like an orange or peach.

The Pike Brewery Dry Wit is proof that even the most static styles can be shaped by a brewer and his tools. Wits have been one of those styles that seems like a cookie cutter replica passed along between breweries. The vast majority all taste the same. This isnít a bad thing. I like the style, and I find the consistency comforting when a brewerís other beers may be lacking. But itís not exciting either. The iconic gasp of a bottle freshly opened is answered by an apathetic sigh. But the Pike Dry Wit is a new approach to the Wit, even if itís blander than I would have hoped for. The aroma is spicy and clean, even sterile. For reasons only a neurologist could begin to explore, the aroma smells like a high-class pool, or luxury shampoos. The taste matches this peculiar aroma. Itís a dry take on the Wit style (as per the name) with a thin refreshing body and a nice blend of spiciness to alert the tongue. The Dry Wit is definably dryer and fresher than my normal palate boring Wits, but still lacking in flavor. Even spiciness just seems like texture without some contrasting flavors.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy dirty gold with an ok foamy white head. Citric/spice aroma. Medium body with a lot of mild carbonation. Flavor is bready/wheaty with some citrus. Not too much spice. It does finish quite dry. Has bitter. Sessionable.

Sask89 (409) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 23, 2010
Pours a pale yellow colour, clear with a small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is of floral and citrus hops with a strong herb and spice presence and a light wheat scent. Taste is fruity sweet initially and then becomes more mild and dry towards the finish. Light body, lively carbonation and thin mouth feel. Overall a nice beer, good belgian white.

Bottle, shared with my father-in-law. Pours a hazy deep gold, with an average white head. Aroma is sweet wheat cereal with light coriander and orange. Palate is on the watery side, with flavours of wheat, orange peel, and light coriander spice. Finish has a boxboard dryness.

2010-07-05. Lightly hazy pastel yellow with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is mild, muted yeast, hints of lemon that that may have been from the beer itself or leftover from the removed garnish. Flavour is similarly mild, light spice throughout - coriander? Average to light bodied palate. Okay but a bit bland. On tap at Pike Place brewpub, Seattle
