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.

Soooo good in 30 degree heat in Camden! Great cloudy yellow colour looks like lemon meringue pie. Far too easy to drink. Citrus flavours without the acidity. Small hints of bergamot. Tiniest hint of bubblegm. Finishes quite hearty wheat. Just what I wanted on the day.

mzaar (1733) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2013
Flaska. Lätt dimmig guldfärgad öl med ett vitt snart försvinnande skum. Doften är en citronbomb, där också örter och gräs hittar utrymme. Citronen är klart dominerande även i smaken, med inslag av torr te-känsla och örter. Tunn kropp. Kolsyrig munkänsla.

A great example of the style. Dark orange body, lovely floral and citrus aroma. Very flavourful. Really good.

Joakgust (950) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle, 33cl - Semi hazy golden blond beer with a small head. Aroma is spicy with notes of wheat, citrus, lemons, bergamot, tea and yeasty phenolic spicyness. Flavor is fresh with notes of lemons, bergamot, wheat and spices. Highly drinkable with a nice bite at the end.

stefannilssons (1491) - SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2013
Mmm, det här var ju rätt så gott. Dock tyckte jag nog att den var lite för kolsyrad och sådant drar ju alltid ner upplevelsen. men utöver det så hade den en försiktig kropp men med en skön balans. Smaken bar toner av citron, torkat gräs, sötma och krydda. Slutsats; rätt så trevlig sak det här.

Nische (896) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2013
Cloudy yellow color. Floral, spicy, citric smell. Spicy taste with some sweet fruit and lemon to it. Refreshing and light with a pleasant bitterness.

minutemat (1878) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle from Borough Wines, Stoke Newington. Pours cloudy yellow. Refreshing beer perfect for a warm summer evening. The lemon here is fairly sutble, the spicy wheatiness balanced with the bergamot and a saison-esque fragrance. A good fruity beer.

olsvammel (3548) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Floral and citrusy smell, spicy with some of the regular wit aromas, yeasty with some light citrus fruits. Similar taste. Very tasty brew, specially considering the ABV. Very nice.

Idiosynkrasie (4085) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy pale golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Wheaty aroma, some citrus and orange, a floral touch, bergamot. Taste is initially minimally sweet floral, fruity, lemon, orange, later more and more bergamot comes in with increasing intensity, leading to a dry, floral finish. Nice.
