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.

On tap at Pike brewery. Pours hazy golden hue with a white, foamy head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, flowery hops and some spices. Medium, smooth body. Some Belgian yeast, spices and banana combine on the palate. It seems to me that this brew is a hybrid of hefe and wit.

Hazed golden color, foamy white head has good retention. Aroma of lemon, some sort of sweet spice and grass/hay. Taste is much the same, not too sweet, not as much perfume spice and orange flavor as other wits Ive had.

Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a two finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a thick lasting ring. Slightly earthy, spicy aroma with hints of grassy hops, pale malt, yeast and citrus. Lots of lemon zest, pepper and coriander with bread ans wheat notes. Full bodied with a nice balance of earthy hops, crisp light and citrus fruit, zesty spice and bread/yeast. The hops compliment the peppery, coriander spiciness really well creating a crisp bite up front that lingers over the sweeter notes into a slight dry finish. Theres some pale malt underneath along with a prominent yeast/bread character and lots of sweet citrus rind. Very flavorful, refreshing and easy to drink.

Sampled on 6/22/2011. This witbier pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, orange some yeast and spices. A medium to light bodied witbier. The malts are citrusy, wheat, fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Lively carbonation. A very dry finishing witbier. The dryness kind of negates the fruit and citrus sweetness. It is probably the driest wit I have ever tasted, makes it a very refreshing beer, but I wonder if a little more residual sweetness would make it an even better beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry, clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch spicy.

Bottle. Murky gold with a short white head. Spice, yeast, wheat and light citrus in the aroma. Taste is wheat and soft spice up front followed by sweet malt, light citrus, dusty yeast and light candied fruit. Body is light-medium with a lively carbonation. Finishes with a touch more bitterness, yeast and wheat notes are still strong here as well. Lighter malt and fruit notes come through as does a softer spiciness and light bubblegum.

Quite a wheaty aroma with some lemon. This is surprisingly good at first. A bit wheaty, but the dryness battles the wheat in the aftertaste. Overall, the sample was enough for me.

Weak lemongrass and coriander nose. Cloudy amber, thin head. Grain and coriander. Finishes as it smells, with maybe a mintier thyme edge. Drinks fine, although it is grainier than I like in any wheat beer. Its the Dortmunder of Belgian wits. If I didnt love wheat beers as much as I do, this would probably get a lower rating.

Just excellent for a lower abv beer. Taste is dry, featuring summer fruit and some spice. Much better than one would expect. I would definitley drink this one again.
