COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg; Special.
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.

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.

elbernays (390) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 16, 2014
Pours cloudy pale yellow with bubbly white head. Pepper, herbs, basil, citrus and pear nose. Flavour is bread, yeast, sour, not sweet. Light body. Flavour is not full on. Plenty of bubbles which leave a slight lemon bitter aftertaste. Very refreshing. Nice and a little bit different for style.
