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.

Keg - Cloudy pale straw, thin white head, good lacing and good retention. Aroma is lemon, herby, pine and musty barnyard. Taste is herby, piney, grainy, grassy, coriander seeds and slightly sour. Medium body, light carbonation. Can’t say I liked it that much.

elbernays (714) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 16, 2014
Pours cloudy pale yellow with bubbly white head. Pepper, herbs, basil, citrus and pear nose. Flavour is bread, yeast, sour, not sweet. Light body. Flavour is not full on. Plenty of bubbles which leave a slight lemon bitter aftertaste. Very refreshing. Nice and a little bit different for style.

ciaranc (1040) - 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.

Flavours were coriander, fruitiness, sweetness, grass and low bitterness. Aftertaste had citricness, coriander and low bitterness. A weak watery Witbier.

FatPhil (9818) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 26, 2014
Tap (Woolshed, Helsinki)
Slightly enteric wheaty aroma, gentle sharp orangy spice. Wheatier in the taste, in fact it’s enormously wheaty. Boring palate, just a chuggable crisp beer. Would happily drink this in a live music venue if everything else was macro crap.

RexTalionis (2788) - FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
Draught. Hazy pale yellow in color with a small whitish head. Light hints of spicyness, some wheat and citrus in aroma. Also some summer meadow and floral notes are present. Notes of citrus and wheat as well in taste. Chewy mouthfeel. Coriander spicyness in aftertaste. Refreshing.

Holmen1 (3022) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 22, 2014
Til maten (et meget godt valg!) på The Horseshoe, i lag med Steven og Håkon april-14: flott skum som varer, og den lett uklare strågule fargen kler stilen. Masse aroma og smak, den hadde ingen problemer med å skjære i gjennom den nydeligelangtidsstekte lamb shank med tilbehør. Sitron, bergamottappelsin og belgisk gjør. Heftig og begeistret! Og bare 4,3 vitamineneheter, jeg var meget imponert. En pub jeg skal tilbake til.

zacgillbanks (2740) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a hazy pale straw coloured beer with lemon and sage (bergamot?) flavours, floral fruity notes and a creamy zesty, tart fruity finish.
