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.

Davros (2460) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2013
Pours gold with a fading head. Nose shows a herbal note (bergamot?), lemon peel and a doughy wheat character. Somewhat reminiscent of sponge cake. Some lemon remains as a flavour along with the herbal note. More doughy wheat too. Needs more carbonation. An interesting twist. Still think some orange peel would be good though.

DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 25, 2013
[10/3/13] Draught at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell in London. Hazy yellow. Aroma of coriander, citrus peels and wheat. Spicy flavor, sweetish and a bit tart, with citrus and a drier, more spicy finish. Light-medium-bodied. Refreshing.

clear yellow with a quickly fading white head. aroma is spicy lemon which carries in to the taste with light bitterness and sourness, zesty. Light body and light beer but some interesting tastes. good summer beer.

A light, lemony wheat beer basically, fairly tasty, without being a particular knock out.

Alphadelic (1974) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2013
A dry, citric nose with an element of cedar wood to it. A touch of soap and a very light and soft body to it. That soap ones is unfortunate. It sets the beer back a bit for me.
