Pike "Dry Wit"
Pike Brewing Company - Seattle, Washington USA
Belgian Witbier (ABV 5%) (IBU 20)

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a hazy brownish yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a small cap which produced some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was mild of a light grain malt and a sweaty Belgian yeast with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), pears, wheat and a bit of coriander.

The taste was lightly sweet with a moderate dose of wheat and honey early on, progressing into a much yeastier flavor that had a strong citrus presence and a touch of spice at the end. The flavor lingered for an average amount of time after the swallow with a slight watery feel and a yeasty citrus taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was light ion body and watery in texture with an almost flat carbonation.

Overall an OK Witbier with a mildly light body and taste, that along with the low ABV makes this a good brew for a hot summers day when you feel like not getting blotted and having more than just a few...
