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.

theisti (4068) - Kansas, USA - MAY 15, 2011
22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington. Pour is a hazed yellow golden with a clean white head. Aroma is citrus floral yeast, honey, hay, and a pleasant lemongrass. Fragrant nose. The taste is the lemongrass citrus, with a more pronounced straw taste versus the nose and a pleasant earthy hay. Spice yeast lingers in the finish. Palate is medium bodied, with lower carbonation and the lingering straw honey lemongrass finish - quite dry. Nice enough, it worked well for the Bainbridge ferry crossing.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2011
Received 22-oz bomber via trade with 5000. Pours a hazy golden amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a clean disk. Aroma of lemon zest, some orange zest, yeast, touch of honey and golden grain malt. Taste is medium bodied, some white pepper spice flavors with multi-grain malt, lemon zest and yeast. Finish is semi-dry with both citrus zest and yeast aftertaste.

troopie (2303) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle. Poured cloudy orange with a thin fast dissipating head and many bubbles. Aroma is candied peaches and naartjies. Fruity and spicy flavour, Light bodied. Leaden finish, that brings the rating down.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle purchased on 11/17/2010. Colour: Bright yellow and slightly cloudy. Nose: Candied fruits, specifically mandarin oranges and pineapple. Spearmint and eucalyptos is quite evident along with hints of liquorice. Very interesting. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, light sour. Dry wheat, mint, plain yogurt but all quite distant. Have to work hard to get solid character out of this one. Great nose though...

Hazy yellow. Wheat, coriander and orange nose and flavor. Nothing overwhelming, but nice solid wheat beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2010
In short: A watery wheat beer with coriander and orange peels flavors. Boring and not even very refreshing
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh about two months after purchase
The look: Partly cloudy orange blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose has some coriander and orange peels. Body with on the light side, even by witbier standards, almost watery. Light wheat presence, some coriander, some minerals, some orange peels, light floral touch. Quite drinkable but this thin unpretentious witbier is missing the lemony character that makes other watery lemonade-witbiers refreshing. As it is, it is a bland without even being very refreshing. You want some dry wit? There you go: Why did the chickenpox crossed the ocean? Because Death To America!!

One of my contributions to BCTC. Cloudy orange with ring and lace. Very strong coriander and orange aroma. Orange wheat tang and way too much coriander. Meh.

The flavor i get some orange,coriander,spices. But it feels a little thin sometimes. Its close to the style though. The aroma has some lemon,yeasty and light wheat notes Pours a cloudy yellow color with an average sized white head and some spotty lacing. It has a fair amount of carbonation The finish is dry i guess hence the name dry wit. I get some white pepper. I find with things from these guy its hit or miss. I have been to the actual brewery in Seattle. So it depends if you try the stuff at the source or not.

Bottle. Looks like a white beer, smells like a white beer and tastes like a white beer. Aromas of spice, orange, herb and some light sweetness maybe. Taste is of coriander and slight spice. Palate is dry and boring. Boring style but as already mentioned, you know what you are getting before you even get it.
