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.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy gold with a small frothy off white head. The aroma is yeast clove and pepper. Thick mouthfeel with a spicy yeast and pepper with dry finish. A decent Wit from Pike.

A nearly perfect Belgian White. The smell and taste are of particular note.

A run of the mill wit beer is another solid release from Pike. Its 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 isnt 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 Im not sure how it could travel from coast to coast and still be the cheapest option on the shelf.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a medium, white head. Very light aroma but slightly sweet with a hint of citrus. Mild wheaty flavor with a hint of spice and citrus. Dry slightly bitter finish. Smooth and refreshing but fairly bland.

nuplastikk (6056) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2012
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, doesnt have any of the vanilla or big wheat tones I like in a Wit. Either way, its a decent enough session beer.

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.

dresden (1558) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 9, 2012
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 dont mind it.

I enjoyed the taste of this beer a lot. Im not a huge hef fan but I like how this beer isnt too wheaty. Its got a little more heart to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
