COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Förväntningarna på veteöl med bergamot och citron är givetvis i fotknölshöjd och den som gapar efter mycket mister...poängen med en massa udda idéer. Det är inte någonting som når ända fram, vare sig som som veteöl eller något annat.

maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2013
Keg Euston Tap London 30/05/13. A very hazy blonde beer with a nice bright white head. The aroma is spicy witty floral which follows through to the mouth. There’s a great combo of fruit and spice in this. Actually this is a very very good Belgian Wit. Very authentic and very lovely. The spicing with the lemony edge goes so well together. Very refreshing, very lovelt, very impressed.

Linnet (1091) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2013
Ar: lovely fruitiness, lots of spices and lemon zest, lots of fruity yeasty esters, actually rivaling its Belgian counterparts in aroma. Ap: hazy golden colour, medium quickly disippating white head. F: low bitterness, slightly tart, a low bot noticable sweetness, zesty, citric, spices, but actually a bit thin. P: Lively carbonation, but low ABV is very noticable leaving it a bit watery. T: had higher hopes for this one.
