An easy beer kit for the first timer, this light-bodied brew was once thought of as a summer beer – but it's a crowd favorite you'll want to homebrew all year 'round. The coriander and zest of lemon give this wheat beer an added zing that refreshes the palette – any time of year. Add lemon and orange zest to the second fermentation if desired.

4.8 / 5.063 ReviewsFun and easy!This was my first beer making experience and it was easy to do, directions were clear, and I had a lot of fun! Can't wait until I open the first bottle!January 8, 2013So popular last year, did a double batch this yearQuality kit and one of my favorites. This year, I did two batches and lightly toasted the coriander seeds on vat one before adding to the boil. It *might* just be all in my head, but it seems to have added a pleasant, subtle addition to the flavor profile. I thought I was just trying to convince myself... but others are picking that batch of the two in the "blind taste test".June 28, 2017Purchased
1 year agoAwesome BeerThis was one of the best received kit beers I've made. Fresh, bright coriander taste with a hint of lemon-it's not overwhelming. Kegged and distributed at an early season football game last fall in HOT temperatures. Perfect for the weather, very light and crisp. Crowd pleaser for sure.February 8, 2013A family favoriteI brew this for my family ie parents and (adult) children. It is consistently popular with all new tasters. At first I thought it would be trendy and fade in popularity but not the case. My last batch spent several months in the secondary and it picked up a LOT of lemon (not to my taste but I was the minority on that vote)February 13, 2013Delicious...but had bad yeast :(This beer turned out great..left in secondary for about a month, lemon taste is strong but not overwhelming. Also has a darker color, a little more red then expected. The only problem was that our yeast was dead when they arrived :(. I am a microbiologist so I know it is not user error. Though when reading more about the strain of yeast many people had problems getting the yeast to ferment, so it could have been a bad batch. Beer is great though!March 1, 2013Solid BrewLike some other reviews mine turned out a redder color opposed to the light yellow as highlighted on the color scale of the box...probably because it's extract and not all grain. Regardless, great beer, very drinkable and will certainly make again. Bottled after 2 weeks in each and was sipping another 2 weeks later, so all in all 6 weeks from start to finish.March 4, 2013LOVE IT!Brewed this recently and absolutely LOVE it! Great taste, flavor, and ease of brewing. Everything you need in one little box! Can't wait another 6 weeks until it is finally drinkable. Highly recommended!March 5, 2013Great Summer/Fall BeerDelicious, and just the right combination of flavors for a perfect summer/fall beer, I highly recommend it, and look forward to trying the all-grain version this summer.March 7, 2013love this beerMade this beer for my uncle and now he wont leave me alone about it.March 17, 2013Great kit...super easy!Excellent kit! Very easy to use and the instructions were simple to follow. I brewed this yesterday and it will be ready in 6 weeks...can't wait to try it! I highly recommend this for those people that love German style Weisen beers!March 25, 2013

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 10 answersI want the lemon flavor but no bannana esters. Any recommend substitution? Maybe american ale?How do I make the orange zest?BEST ANSWER: While I used lemon zest as specified in the instructions, oranges should be similar.'
I recently zested naval oranges by cleaning the outside and using a zester (file type).
For this Orange Dubbel- I added the zest to a mesh ball and dropped it into the boil 10 min from the end.
For the lemon corander weiss- I zested a lemon and placed it into a small mesh bag that had been soaked in boiling water- added the zest- microwaved for 30 sec and added to secondary fermenter. The lemon was a little overwhelming 2-6 weeks after bottling but mellowed thereafter and was delicious.
