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.

The Pike Brewery Dry Wit is proof that even the most static styles can be shaped by a brewer and his tools. Wits have been one of those styles that seems like a cookie cutter replica passed along between breweries. The vast majority all taste the same. This isnt a bad thing. I like the style, and I find the consistency comforting when a brewers other beers may be lacking. But its not exciting either. The iconic gasp of a bottle freshly opened is answered by an apathetic sigh. But the Pike Dry Wit is a new approach to the Wit, even if its blander than I would have hoped for. The aroma is spicy and clean, even sterile. For reasons only a neurologist could begin to explore, the aroma smells like a high-class pool, or luxury shampoos. The taste matches this peculiar aroma. Its a dry take on the Wit style (as per the name) with a thin refreshing body and a nice blend of spiciness to alert the tongue. The Dry Wit is definably dryer and fresher than my normal palate boring Wits, but still lacking in flavor. Even spiciness just seems like texture without some contrasting flavors.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy dirty gold with an ok foamy white head. Citric/spice aroma. Medium body with a lot of mild carbonation. Flavor is bready/wheaty with some citrus. Not too much spice. It does finish quite dry. Has bitter. Sessionable.

Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 23, 2010
Pours a pale yellow colour, clear with a small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is of floral and citrus hops with a strong herb and spice presence and a light wheat scent. Taste is fruity sweet initially and then becomes more mild and dry towards the finish. Light body, lively carbonation and thin mouth feel. Overall a nice beer, good belgian white.

2010-07-05. Lightly hazy pastel yellow with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is mild, muted yeast, hints of lemon that that may have been from the beer itself or leftover from the removed garnish. Flavour is similarly mild, light spice throughout - coriander? Average to light bodied palate. Okay but a bit bland. On tap at Pike Place brewpub, Seattle
