James and Pete paired up for Gentleman’s 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.
It’s turned out as one of the most incredible beers we’ve 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, it’s dry and interesting and quenching and a dry, phenolic spice ends the mouthful like a full stop ends a sentence.

Draught @ Euston Tap, London. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat, spice, coriands, lemon. Flavor is light sweet with wheat, spice, coriands, little lemon. Thin to medium body, lively carbonation. Wits is not really my game, but my mom liked it. 150913

Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with small white head. Aroma of bubble gum, earl grey, lemon peel, earthy wheat, white pepper and bread. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of earth, earl grey, pepper and bread. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Ok but a bit weird. Samuel thinks it smells like sushi.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
August 18, 2013 - on draught at Cask Pub & Kitchen (Pimlico). Hazy pale gold with a decent off-white fizzy head. Aroma - mmmm, tree fruit, cardamon and bergamot - really good, the bergamot really hides a fair amount of background sweetness nicely. Taste - really smooth and balanced (herbal bitterness and pear sweetness) - quite floral and no alcohol to detract. Average body, dry, decent carbonation ... starts soft and fruity/malty and finishes floral and a little bitter - well done.

Bottle. Pours a milky straw yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma is lemon, straw, herbs, coriander and hints of wheat and pale malts. Taste is lemon, grains, herbs, coriander, citric peel, hints of herbs and wet grass. Medium body and carbonation. Decent wit for sure.

Keg at cask p and k. Hazy creamy yellow with small ring of white head. Aroma is light and spicy/peppery with hint of banana and citrus. Taste is more estery up front, banana, with a little lemon and light pepperyness. Dry and refreshing. Nice.

Very light and refreshing with a good lemon taste. Overall though I’d vote for a strong citra hopped IPA over this.
