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.

650ml bottle. Frothy head on hazy amber. Nose is strong spice, floral and banana. I heard that there was lavender in this beer. If so that must be where the soapy perfume floral flavour comes from. However it may be my favourite beer with amber a taste I normally run from. Not going to become my go to patio Wit but it is a pleasant drink and one I might return to on an annual basis. I think it needs some food to fully enjoy with. A soft soapy" palate. A spicy floral wit light in banana or yeast notes.

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.

trevor211 (1678) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2010
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 isnt dry. In fact its almost a quencher. Good summer brew, sure - but Im wary of any brew that has a suggested serving with a fruit garnish. This isnt up to Pikes normal caliber.

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.

ManvsCity (183) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
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.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2010
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.
