Beer of the Fortnight: Camden Gentleman’s Wit

 
 

Are you someone that loves Earl Grey tea but have found yourself thinking, ‘If only there was a beer that tasted like this’? If so, then Camden Gentleman’s Wit is the beer for you.

The brainchild of Camden Town Brewery, the Gentleman’s Wit offers a very English twist to a Belgian-style wheat beer.

Gentleman’s Wit is a 4.3% witbier brewed with pilsner and wheat malts and perle hops. The addition of roasted lemons and bergamot are what set this wheat beer apart from its competitors, however.

The lemons give this beer a zesty and refreshing flavour while the bergamot gives the Gentleman’s Wit its signature Earl Grey fragrance and a floral finish to the flavour.

Available in 330ml bottles, the Gentleman’s Wit proves that you don’t have to go as far as Belgium or Germany for a good wheat beer and that there is an ideal solution for when you just can’t wait for the kettle to boil.
