Pike Dry Wit

contrary to the name, it was not particularly funny. get it? dry wit?

It’s been a loooooong time since I’ve posted up a so much as a teeny, tiny peep. I will not point out the obvious-my name says it all. They don’t call me ‘the Lightweight’ for nothin’. Having said that, when I do imbibe, if they are as tasty as this brew that I present to you for review it makes it real easy to get excited and back into the swing of things.

I sampled an unfiltered Pike Dry Wit seasonal white ale. The label states that it’s 92% organic. Groovy. When I first poured and it was super cold right out of the fridge, the nose didn’t offer up much. I detected a tiny bit of yeasty pizza dough, but that was about it. After it came down in temperature a bit I noticed way more spice. Lots of ginger and maybe a little white peppercorn. Perfect for fall. I liked the weight of it-medium bodied, but with plenty of personality. Notes of ruby red grapefruit and some subtle spice on the palate. A bitter finish, but in no way unpleasant. I liked it a lot.

Pike is brewed in Seattle, WA. I was given this bottle by the illustrious Miss BYOBates so I’m not sure how much it costs. It came in a 22 oz. bottle and had only 5% alcohol.

This was an excellent choice for an early fall evening. Spicy and tasty.
