Default looking for a summer beer

Well, spring is here and summer is not that far off so it is time for me to start thinking about brewing a summer beer. I am going to be away the whole month of April and when i return would like to start a summer brew which would make it ready by the middle of June. Anybody have suggestions?
I was thinking something light, maybe a wheat beer. Any vanilla weizen receipes?

Are you AG or extract?

I know Homebrew Heaven has a vanilla wheat recipe that a buddy of mine brewed up and loved.

But you can't go wrong with a nice wit or a hefe. I'm doing an American wheat right now for the same reason. I need summer to come.

I hear ya Dude. For some reason this winter was too much for me.

I brewed a honey ale a few weeks back. I should be tasting it soon. Maybe this weekend. I'm hoping it will be my lawn mower beer. I will post my evaluation of it next week. If it turned out I will brew more for the summer.

You wouldn't happen to have an extract recipe for that would you? I love Sleeman's Honey Brown (it's a lager) but I think a Honey Ale sounds great for summer.

If you don't mind sharing I've been thinking about a summer brew too... Was thinking about something berry-ish but yours might just hit the spot better and not get tiresome as quickly as a berry would. And of course, a good "lawnmower brew" would be more than welcome.

I too will be in the extract realm for a bit...
