4.2/5  rDev +20%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Had this on tap at Pike - it is their new spring to early summer seasonal.

A - Poured into a pint with a nice, moderate, white head. Good retention and some lacing. Cloudy, this beer is a straw color, bordering on gold. Very crisp looking.

S - A bouqet of aromas here - the spices are at the forefront. Definitely coriander, orange peel and lavender. Some other floral notes as well. Somewhat fruity, definitely yeasty. Great.

T - This is intriguing, and I may re-review this score after having it a few more times. It is definitely a stronger spiced witbier than most, but in a good way. Lots of lavender and other floral notes, definitely coriander again, wheat, and some hints of orange zest as well. Little in the way of bitterness, which is good for the style.

Very strong, there are no doubts about the spicing here. Not subtle in anyway, it nevertheless delivers and is quite tasty and refreshing. I look forward to trying it again soon, although I imagine some may find it slightly overpowering compared to standards such as Hoegaarden.

M - As expected, this is crisp and twangy. Moderate to high carbonation, and the spice adds some kick. Medium bodied, with a dry clean finish.

D - Left me wanting another, and I would have if I had had the time, but I was also wanting to try their newest DIPA batch (improved - awesome!) as well, and moved on to that. This one goes down easy, tastes great, and is definitely refreshing.

Pours a hazy, pale yellow with a white head. Retention isn't great but the film that results is after the bloom from the pour dissipates lasts quite a long time. Really good page.
Smell is sourish, and light malt, citrus, banana, and spices. Balance is good.
Taste is the same with malt, banana, citrus, spices. Balance is good here, too.
Almost medium bodied, slightly warming, drying finish. A fine wit and only $4 at my local store.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, spice, and slight citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, wheat, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is light and fairly refreshing.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours practically no head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is nice: orange, banana and honey.
The taste is pleasant fruit forward with a nice dry lemon bitter coming through the middle to end. The spices are nice too.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable for a witbier.

3.8/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Nice looking, tan and pretty clear with some rising bubbles and a nice, lasting white head that left nice lacing.

Aroma is spicy, coriander and citrus, lemon peel, a little wheat and some yeast.

Flavor is again spicy, a bit more like a wheat beer but with nice citrus, coriander, and just a touch of bubble gum.

Body is light and carbonation is smooth and mild. Very easy to drink.

An enjoyable witbier. I bought three different Pike bombers today because I've really liked their beers so far. Nothing changed here, still good stuff in my book.

I bought a bomber of Pike Dry Wit in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a shiny gold color, clear, with a creamy white head. Thee are very few bubbles in the glass suggesting mild carbonation.

Smell is sweet soft fruit aroma pears and melons with some sweet sugary notes.

Taste is sweet bread flavor upfront, giving way to some soft fruit flavors, with a mild dry bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a dry and bitter aftertaste.

Over all nice light drinkable wit bier.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

opaque golden/yellow pour with a finger of head which quickly diminished. smells of coriander, orange, nutmeg, grapes. a subtle variety of flavors... bready, bitter/tart lemongrass, orange zest, coriander. light body with mild carbonation.. fizzy on the tongue, easy going down!

a nice refreshing summertime ale, priced at $2 you can't go wrong!
