+1 to this. If you think she would go for it, ask her to. If not that, maybe ask her to cap for you. If she takes ownership in some way, she may find it to be more rewarding instead of something "you do". Chicks dig the "we" sh!t.
You said "crazy fruity" in your OP. Realize that there are things that you can make with fruit that will not be "crazy" fruity, just fruity. If you are opposed to any fruit at all try doing a blond/pale with a pretty fruity hop (citra, simcoe?). I just did BM's centennial blond with all simcoe late additions, and the fermentor and beer sure smells like fruit.
