Brewmaster Brad's Thoughts:

"Not much is more refreshing than an ice-cold glass of fresh lemonade, or for that matter, a cold, lower ABV American Wheat Beer. Brewers have known this to be a great combination for a long time, and it is high time for a recipe kit featuring this classic combination. The base beer is a simple American Wheat with moderately low bitterness and then it is dosed with real, all natural, preservative-free crystallized lemon. Not to be confused with lemonade mixes or soft drink mixes, the crystallized lemon in this recipe is just that – lemon. Since the crystallized lemon contains no sugar, the beer gets a delicious dose of lemonade flavor without adding additional fermentables that could lead to a renewed fermentation or possible over-carbonation in the bottle. Give this one a whirl, it is truly a refreshing treat even for the biggest of hop heads."

Very good. Not too much lemon. Not too sweet. Very pleasant when it is 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

Lemon Shandy

As usual I can barely taste any fruit extract. I have tried to make blue moon knock offs many times and this is my 2nd shot at a lemon (summer) shandy. All have failed miserably. I've also tried cherry wheat...FAIL. The only one that has worked well is the liquid apricot extract in a mild wheat beer. This is very good. Over all I have been very disappointed when I have tried to flavor with fruit, especially citrus.
