Brad's Thoughts:

Obi Ron's Wheat is a perfect beer for the spring and summer months, but it goes down just as nicely any time of year. Brewed with nearly 50% white wheat and a dash of light crystal malt, the malt flavors are quite prominent and serve as a perfect backdrop for a modest hop charge. The choice of liquid yeast pairings works wonderfully to accentuate hop flavor with a heightened fermentation-derived ester profile, and a small Centennial dry hop step serves to really round out the aroma.

A Pleasant surprise!

This is one of my favorite kits from Northern Brewer so far. Crisp, refreshing, just the right amount of mouth-feel. The Centennial dry-hop shows through just enough to give this wheat ale the perfect amount of fruitiness. This is now my go to for an easy drinking home brew. I will definitely keep this one on my rotation. Highly suggest trying it if your on the fence!

So good I bought 2 more kits

I have never added hops to my beer 5-7 days before bottling as the instructions state. I normally don't like real hoppy beers, so I was a little leery. However, I was more than satisfied with the end result. Like my title says, I bought 2 more kits.
