    Strange beer, easy enough drinking and easy to make but wouldn’t rush to make this again. If I did then I’d probably leave out the lemon and lime because I think they are giving the beer a strange cold tasting sensation almost like mint. Dark colour like stout but light like a lager to drink so tricks your beer senses a bit. If bottling then prime for a good level of carbonation, this beer needs to be fizzy.

      Hey Lewis, Strange recipe, Shock Top is a Belgian Witt but the brewers who made this recipe has added roast barley and dark crystal which is totally out of style. That’s not to say it would make a bad beer but nothing like a Belgian Witt.

    I made this as a wedding present. The dark crystal was a mistake on my behalf 🤣 but the lad who I made it for said it tasted exactly same. It blew his mind to have a light tasting beer that was black.
