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.

Cask. Pours hazy yellow with almost no head which fades within a minute. Aroma is wheat, slight malt, orange, lemon and herbs. Taste is quite sweet but fairly short lived and a hint of dryness in the aftertaste. Overall very nice.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Keg tap at the Garibaldi Hotel, Northampton. Light straw, hazy. A fair bit of evident carbonation. Not much head but plenty of lacing. Gentle lemonade and spicy hop aroma. Taste is sweet, well spiced and balanced with lemon tartness. The bergamot shines in the finish and aftertaste. Very well done.

Bottle at the Head of Steam in Norton. Pours very light golden with hardly any head and pretty clear. Lots of wheat on the nose with a little smokey edge. Pretty wheaty taste but a touch watery on the finish.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2016
Une blanche classique, tant dans sa robe trouble que dans son nez alliant épices, coriandre, notes citronnées et levurées. la bouche est à la fois ronde et fruitée et la finale acidulée. Une blanche de soif

AtronSeige (1287) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 29, 2015
Aroma: Medium coriander, medium-light zest. Missing malt and hops. Appearance: Hazy, straw body. Medium white head, low retention. Flavour: Medium coriander. Light zest. Missing malt and hops. Dry finish with lingering coriander. Mouthfeel: Mouth coating. Light body. Crisp. Medium carbonation. Carbonic sting. Overall: The malt never shows, which is required for a good wit. The coriander is the forefront of the beer, which it should not be. It missed the balance and finesse of a witbier. 330 ml bottle, poured. 16A. Witbier
