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.

Fantastic smooth Wheat beer from the Fantastic Camden Town Brewery. Unique smell of lemon and a fantastic smooth wheat beer with banana undertones. One of my favourites!

jjsint (2998) - 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.
