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 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.

Garrold (2688) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Opaque, lemon squash colour. Tight, bright, white head. Bit of lemon. A bit yeasty. Some cereal. Some clove, and what have you. Taste is dry, and squeeze of lemon tart. Thin, oddly greasy palate. A bit watery. Finish is short dry. Smells good. Looks great...

larsga (6765) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2015
Medium white head. Hazy pale yellow body. Fruity mealy coriander aroma, clean and straightforward. Dry coriander and fruit taste with floral mealy mint notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy, slightly flat mouthfeel. Dryish herbal coriander aftertaste with mealy wheaty notes. Itís not bad at all, but a bit anonymous. (0.33l bottle, from Waitrose Canary Wharf, London.)

Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2015
Almost see-through with little foam. Fruity and spicy on the nose. Taste has yeast coming through but fairly light on taste and palate. Lacklustre finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy blond colour. Aroma is citrusy and a bit soapy. Fresh and zesty taste. The lemon is definitely noticeable. Quite sweet at first with a little bitterness in the finish.
