AHS has a Sunset Wheat Kit that she would probably like. Has a citrus-ey aroma and flavor.

I'd not worry about brewing her something before moving. I'd recommend trying various styles from the store and see what she likes and THEN brew it. In the meantime there are countless styles that you can brew for YOU.

ferement with nottingham ale yeast at 60 degrees for 3 weeks, bottle, let it carb for a week then lager the bottles for at least two weeks before drinking.
OG = 1.045-1.050 FG< 1.010

This is super drinkable stuff for the BMC croud



My SWMBO likes this one.

5 pounds red wheat
5 pounds pilsen
rind of 1 lemon, 1 lime, 1 grapefruit and 1 orange added to boil at 5 minutes
1 tbsp course crushed corriander added after primary fermentation is completed for aroma
ferment with nottingham at 60 degrees for 3 weeks and follow same carbonation and aging protocol as cream ale
I wonder what would happen on the cream if I substituted 2 row for the pilsen.

You actually do have enough time for a lager, but if you gotta go ale, I say go for something really clean like a blonde ale or really malty like an english brown. Also, it seems counterintuitive, but a nice oatmeal or sweet stout goes a long way with the ladies (especially if they like chocolate).
