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.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Lemon, pine and mellow dry funk. Cloudy yellow in bottle, less so on keg. Nice creamy head. Lemon, light touch of herbal sweetness. Beautifully zippy front palate then moving to bone dry. Wonderful summer beer when served correct.

ciaranc (980) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 28, 2014
330 ml bottle from Redmonds. Watery, pale yellow, decent foamy white head. Really pale in colour. Coriander, sherbet, lemon, zest and pithy notes on the nose, bit of a slightly unpleasant basement yeast tang in there too. Flavour is pretty flat, some lemon, spritzy citrus. Palette is light, bright and really refreshing. Short finish with more lemony notes.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 26, 2014
Tap (Woolshed, Helsinki)
Slightly enteric wheaty aroma, gentle sharp orangy spice. Wheatier in the taste, in fact itís enormously wheaty. Boring palate, just a chuggable crisp beer. Would happily drink this in a live music venue if everything else was macro crap.
