2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy brownish yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a small cap which produced some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was mild of a light grain malt and a sweaty Belgian yeast with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), pears, wheat and a bit of coriander.
The taste was lightly sweet with a moderate dose of wheat and honey early on, progressing into a much yeastier flavor that had a strong citrus presence and a touch of spice at the end. The flavor lingered for an average amount of time after the swallow with a slight watery feel and a yeasty citrus taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was light ion body and watery in texture with an almost flat carbonation.
Overall an OK Witbier with a mildly light body and taste, that along with the low ABV makes this a good brew for a hot summers day when you feel like not getting blotted and having more than just a few...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours practically no head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is nice: orange, banana and honey.
The taste is pleasant fruit forward with a nice dry lemon bitter coming through the middle to end. The spices are nice too.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable for a witbier.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: bottle artwork is way too busy; pours deep orange gold (dark, for a wit) with a whitish rocky, fizzy head and average lacing. Aroma:citrus, coriander, buckthorn, some spicy hops, yeast, and wheat thin crackers. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with some honeyed sweetness and slightly herbal, slightly funky bitterness; is this a brett beer on the down low?. Finish: the finish is very fast, almost like a door slamming; again, makes me think it’s a brett beer. Notes: Not a bad witbier. A fine take on the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking, tan and pretty clear with some rising bubbles and a nice, lasting white head that left nice lacing.
Aroma is spicy, coriander and citrus, lemon peel, a little wheat and some yeast.
Flavor is again spicy, a bit more like a wheat beer but with nice citrus, coriander, and just a touch of bubble gum.
Body is light and carbonation is smooth and mild. Very easy to drink.
An enjoyable witbier. I bought three different Pike bombers today because I’ve really liked their beers so far. Nothing changed here, still good stuff in my book.
