Default Blue Moon Honey Wheat Clone

Just had some blue moon honey wheat last night, and dang that's a good summer beer!
I was wondering if anyone had an extract recipe for this beer, the wife actually loved it and would drink it too. I've looked on here, but couldn't find a recipe for it, just some general ideas.
I've gathered a whit beer, orange, and honey. Any ideas in the specifics? Thanks.

I brewed a honey wit hoping that it would be close to the blue moon for my wife as well. I used 3lbs of xlight dme, 3lbs of bavarian wheat dme and 2lbs of honey for the full boil. An out of sweet orange peel and 0.9oz crushed corriander both added at 15 minutes. Bottled last week and the flat sample I had was promising. Not sure on the final product for a couple more weeks though.

Sounds good with my limited knowledge, definitely keep me posted in how it turns out!
What do you mean by out of sweet orange peel?
And did you preheat the honey un some water prior to adding to the boil?

Sorry that was supposed to be 1oz of orange peel. I put the container that the honey was in into hot water for about 10 minutes prior to adding it to the boil so that it pours out of my conttainer and into the brew kettle easily. Then use my spoon to scrape the sides of the container a little.

Sounds good and simple. Let me know how it is, I may have to try it for my wife when I finally have a free fermenter.

I haven't tried Blue Moon Honey, but I am planning on doing a Blue Moon style for my next brew, and the recipe I ended up putting together after scouring the forums for information calls for around 2-2.5 lbs of honey. Hopefully it will turn out well!

Is there honey in the regular blue moon?
I'm hoping to try this in a month or so. Gotta keep the missus happy!

There is no honey in the regular blue moon. I'm hoping to fire up a clone soon. Just 2 row, wheat, oats, coriander, orange, and a pack of US-05. Simple.

Gotcha, do you know of any other additions to the honey wheat besides the honey? Or are all the other ingredients the same?
I was planning on the same as your with 2-3lbs of honey.
