COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg; Special.
James and Pete paired up for Gentlemanís Wit (4.3% ABV). The inspiration, other than loving the zesty spiciness of wit, lies somewhere between a plate of lemon meringue pie and a cup of Earl Grey tea. James roasted 20 lemons covered in bergamot for 20 hours until they were juicy, fragrant, caramelised and sharp. The beer was made with a classic recipe and yeast strain with the lemons bombing into the whirlpool at the end of the brew.
Itís turned out as one of the most incredible beers weíve brewed. The colour is as beautiful as a beer can get: a hazy, unfiltered warm pastel yellow. The lemon and bergamot poke through the aroma, a hint of sharpness cuts through the middle, itís dry and interesting and quenching and a dry, phenolic spice ends the mouthful like a full stop ends a sentence.

Bottle from Booths, Clitheroe. Straw-blonde wit a very thin head. Decent witbier, similar to Hoegaarden, with plenty of citrus in its nose.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2015
Had a bottle of this a while back but didnít rate it. This time itís a pint from keg at the Botanist pub near Liverpool St, 19/06/15. Post exam celebrations in the sunshine. Pale yellow, very hazy, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light, vague citrus. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Taste is wheaty, medicinal, sodawater. Basic and gassy. The over-carbonation detracted a lot.

berkshirejohn (5163) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2015
On tap at the Perseverance, Lambs Conduit Street. A hazy pale straw pour with a thin white head; fresh lemony aroma; soft berry fruit taste with a slightly chalky body; and a dry, refreshing finish. A pleasant Wit, on the first proper day of summer.

wheresthepath (1787) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Bottle at the Purple Turtle, Reading. Itís a very pale yellow with virtually no head. Itís a bit thin, fizzy and watery up front. The main flavour is lemonade with some floral hints. Thereís a little grass and ginger too. Light banana comes through in the aftertaste which leaves a slight creaminess in the mouth, losing the crispness and refreshment that I was seeking on this surprisingly hot spring evening. Iím not normally a fan of Belgian-style wheat beers, but despite a few faults (largely in the mouthfeel), this is a tasty enough beer that I quite enjoyed.

Draught at Draft House Soho. Lemon zest wheaty taste with coriander and ginger. Subtly hopped. Overall pretty mild.

alberti92 (159) - - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours yellow with a thin white head with light body and active carbonation. Aroma is cloves and wheat with a pinch of spice. Taste begins with a sharp spiciness on the tongue which radiates into cloves and citrusy notes particularly lemon. Finally the ending is mildly bitter and mildly sour. Pretty mild for a wit beer but still enjoyed.
