Keg; Special.
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.

Cerveza de color dorado amarillo con una espuma blanca delgada. Aroma a limón, especias y té, sabor fuerte y picante. El regusto es cítrico y luego se suaviza en cremosidad suave. Cerveza muy agradable.

(Bottle) Hazy, pale yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with bread, citrus, grass, banana, clove and subtle hints of Earl Grey tea. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of white bread, citrus, lemon peel, clove and flowers. Rather light body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty witbier. Quite nice.

On keg at the Craft Beer Rising event at Drygate brewery. This one didn’t really give me the wit aromas of orange peel or coriander and neither did it give me the expected Earl Grey thing. However, it did deliver all of this on the taste. Quite pungent though.

Big fan of a white beer and I love the play on words. Creamy yellow with a really dusky cloudy appearance. Quite citrusy on its own. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
