Product Details

A Beer as Rare as a Blue Moon

Blue Loon is our nod to a very popular wheat beer brewed in Colorado. Typically garnished with an orange, this easy-drinking ale is packed with flavor. Bready wheat malt, sweet orange peel, and citrusy coriander swim together to create a wonderfully complex flavor profile without being overly assertive. Dive into a pint and you will notice a subtle bitterness and a clean fermentation profile that let the other ingredients sing. Its deep golden and slightly hazy appearance combined with citrusy flavors will bring recollections of sunny days and moonlit nights.

Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Head Brewer:

“This recipe pays homage to a beer that has unequivocally introduced many people to the world of craft beer. Wheat and barley combine to create a smooth base for the real heroes to shine. Spanish sweet orange peel and coriander provide a flavor blast that takes center stage. This Belgian inspired ale is an absolute classic in the beer realm, and this is my take on it. Although not fermented with Belgian yeast, the characteristic ingredients remain the same to make it an American take on the classic Witbier style. Expect to find notes of fresh bread with supporting citrus notes of lemon and orange and a slight haze. If you are crafting this recipe by all-grain traditional mash tun methods, I recommend adding some rice hulls to prevent the mash from getting stuck due to the high percentage of huskless wheat. If you are brewing with malt extract or conducting a BIAB approach, no modifications are necessary. Have fun with this recipe, it will produce a quaffable ale that you will be proud of. ”

Great beer

This is a great beer and has been a big hit every time I've made it. After trying this recipe a few different times I'd highly recommend that you add 1/2oz of coriander and the entire 1oz pack of sweet orange peel. In this batch, I also toasted my coriander. I have made it using the entire 1oz pack of both but didn't want to overdo it because I was going to toast the coriander this time.

Mine was placed in my conical fermenter for 2 weeks and went directly into the keg. After resting for a week the first glass was amazing. I ended up with 4.59% ABV.

My wife's favorite

Made this beer a little over a year ago and it is all my wife, and family, talk about when I mention brewing. Guess I need to try it again and not share so much of it this time. :-)

Blue Loon more like Dark Moon. Recipe stated half oz of Orange and Coriander. I should have used the whole ounce of each.

Great flavor.....but

I noticed immediately upon adding the “gold” malt that the SRM took a big jump. Finished the process and bottled, the approximate SRM of the finished product is around 24(?), not even close to advertised! Guess that the wrong label was on the “gold” malt. Beer still tastes good, but the color is disappointing.
