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.

Bottle from Byron Burger joint. Cloudy yellow pour with a small white head which stays around. Nose is heavy banana, doughy bread and light musk. Banana huge in the taste. Not the nice kind of ripe banana though. Just a heap of banana. Really one dimensional and boring. Wits aren’t my thing anyway

Oh this is lovely! Draft, at the Local Pub in Athens. Spicy, lemony, refreshing Wit - really firm on the palate, whilst still being balanced.

Poured into glass. Light yellow appearance with a small creamy head. Taste of lemon, bergamot and sweet fruits. Fairly light body. Great for hot days. One of the better wheat beers in my opinion.

Very nice attempt with a Wit from England. Good foam crown and fresh tart lemon flavors that blend well with the wheat malt.
