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.

Almost see-through with little foam. Fruity and spicy on the nose. Taste has yeast coming through but fairly light on taste and palate. Lacklustre finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mike_77 (6553) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
Hazy blond colour. Aroma is citrusy and a bit soapy. Fresh and zesty taste. The lemon is definitely noticeable. Quite sweet at first with a little bitterness in the finish.

craftbeersweden (667) - SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2015
A little bit "old" - Best before november 24 - 2013. Still very drinkable though! Hazy gold yellow with a one finger high, white head tha dissapears fast. A nose of citrus, orange, coriander, banana and herbs. Fresh taste of bread, citrus, lemon peel and clove. Light, fresh body - Easy drinkable!

leaparsons (10496) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow gold with an off white foam. Aromas are clean wheat with lemon and lime. Coriander with leafy, herbal notes. Flavours are lemon with yeast and sweet wheat. Resinous with sugar and nutty lager malts base. Not bad.

RichardGretton (4754) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2014

Beese (2669) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Draught at The Euston Tap, London on 23 Jun 2012. Poured a cloudy golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of pear drops, cloves, coriander and banana essence. Fairly light flavours of bread, wheat and citrus. Finish was dough, grass and lemon zest.

Keg, Liverpool Craft Beer Expo, Camp & Furnace. Hazy yellow looks with a small white head. Banana and clove notes in the nose. Flavour was a little sweet and has some juicy citrus and spice alongside wheat and yeast notes. Full smooth mouthfeel. For some reason far better than anticipated. A tasty interpretation of the style.

ALLOVATE (3002) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle @ Graincru Carpark Brewday 2014.
Produces up a palest straw, misty and with fine conditioning. Head is a lacklustre ring of white not serviced at all by the bubbles coming to atmosphere. Soft, lemon balm, Belgian pale candi, yeasty bready funk, boiled rice and damp, river moss (?) pose the aroma. Sour, tart, a little drabby and quite flabby on the palate. It is light bodied but sits a little heavy. Wheat malt dominates and adds a chalkiness to it. Little in the way of clean phenols. Candi, yeasty mid-palate. Lemon hits but the bergamot is a little askew, which is a shame as its oils are generally quite rotund and fragrant. A style I attempt to like but deep down begrudge, so Iím doing my best to shake hands with this one. This is drinkable and to style - unsure if that was their intention - but itís not for me!
