Experimental summer Dunkelweizen recipe...wheat ales are typically served with a little citrus kicker, so I figured I'd make it so that wasn't necessary. Building on a Blood Orange Hefeweizen recipe I made last summer, and inspired by a Lemongrass Kolsch that I had a couple of weeks ago at Middleton Brewing in Everett Washington.

This recipe was cloned from dunkelweizen.

Notes:

Malty goodness with just a slight tinge of lemony citrus on the finish. Just about what I expected...maybe would have liked more citrus in the nose, but then you worry about ending up with lemon pledge. Not bad.
