Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Belgian Wit similar to The Lost Abbey’s Witch’s Wit. A classic Wit with aromas of citrus and spice. Light-bodied and refreshing with a slightly tart finish. A perfect summertime beer.

6 oz. Flaked Wheat

Hops

1/4 oz German Magnum  14%a, 60 minutes

1/4 oz. Czech Saaz 5%a, 30 minutes
