Default Cascade Weizen recipe with Cane Syrup

Wanted to get some input from you guys about this recipe I'm about to make. I wanted to find something light, but not too hoppy in order to try and make good use of sugar cane syrup, found locally here in louisiana. It's a lot like honey, but stronger flavors. Not quite as thick as molasses. Anyway, I know this recipe is off the wall.. just wondering if anyone thinks something is glaringly awful and wrong.

I have no idea what category this would fit in. Maybe specialty beer or american wheat?

Never used cane syrup myself, but the rest of your recipe looks solid to me, and with the syrup at only 7% of the recipe, I don't think you'll have any problems. Brew it up and let us know how it turns out

Not sure of splitting it up like that will cost you some bitterness in favor of aroma.

My american blonde uses 1lb of honey, but also has 2oz of Hops
1.00 ounces Cascade 6.3% Pellets @ 60 minutes
0.33 ounces Cascade 6.3% Pellets @ 30 minutes
0.33 ounces Cascade 6.3% Pellets @ 15 minutes
0.33 ounces Cascade 6.3% Pellets @ 5 minutes

my wizen uses...

1.00 ounces Cascade 7.1% Pellets @ 60 minutes

Sure.... I can change to 1 oz at 60 min. Makes it a little more bitter. Brings IBUs close to 20. Not sure what would be better... 14 or 20+ IBUs in this.

Default Update

Brewed this last week, and just took a gravity sample today (day 8). It's was surprisingly awesome tasting at this point. Nice creamy fermentation is just about done. Tastes really good - crisp but still sweet, I imagine garnishing with a lemon will make it better - maybe even lemon zest next time. I ended up using 0.5 oz cascade at 60 min, same at 15 min, and the same at zero minutes. I think the cane syrup is leaving it sort of sweet, like a honey wheat beer. I'll post again in a few weeks after its carbed up and I get a true taste. So far so good...
