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.

0.5 l draught @ Woolshed, Helsinki. Looks like your normal Witbier. Taste is less spicy, but dry enough. Refreshing, but not very exciting

33cl can. Poured a hazy straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is grainy malt buttery biscuit pear, light banana. The flavour is acid citrus with a grainy malt ight crisp watery, acidic, light fruit palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours white golden with a thin head. Taste of a light wheat beer with hint of tea. Mild hops. Nice and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not able to describe it all that well, but I have a real soft spot for this beer despite being thinking it probably isn't the greatest in the world. Classic wit aroma, standard issue bananna, coriander and funk. It's just a really solid beer, probably panned for being too "big".

330ml yellow can. If you ignore the wanky blurb, you've got yourself a reasonably ok wit. Nothing special. Orange peel nuances, lemon peel texture and some tart citrus unity. I can list ten superior wit biers but am happy a UK brewery is trying one.

Bottle at AG Hazy yellow, small white head Nice aroma of banana yeast Taste quite nice, peach, banana and yeast.

28-08-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their August discovery box). The looks of the beer are very nice. The beer has a nice light yellow colour. It is very light, lighter than most Witbieren. The beer has a nice haziness, but it isn’t cloudy. You can still look trough it. On top of the beer a nice layer of rough white foam is formed, with rather bad retention. After not that long only a small drape is left. But that isn’t really a problem. The smell of the beer is nice. It has some typical Witbier features, but it also has something special, something extra. I smell some rather simple malt aromas. They arent to strong, but they give a nice sweet, maltiness. Besides this there is a nice touch of lemon, and distinct bergamot. The lemon has a nice sweet caramel touch to it. Very special and nice. Nice, i like the extra special touch. The taste of the beer is quite nice as wel. I like it, but it is not as good as the taste was. It is slightly less balanced. The taste of the beer is nice though. There is a nice malty touch. Besides this there is a nice hoppy touch, lemon zest, coriander, caramelised lemon, bergamot. It is very nice, and a bit stronger than in most witbieren. Nice. It has a good bitterness, acidity and a nice sweetness. I like it. It is well balanced, but the bitterness gives a dry aspect that is a bit to strong. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium light body, slightly sticky texture and rather low carbonation. The finish of the beer is nice. Nice zesty touch and some cilantro there. I like it. Good one.

Bonne bière blanche, bonne odeur et on reconnait bien le zeste de citron. Rafraîchissante. Toujours dommage que les blanches soit si peu forte...
