The purists, especially those who brew the stuff in Germany, tend to frown upon the addition of lemon, as they feel the beer needs no additional flavor. I always drink my wheat beers sans lemon so I can enjoy the intended product.

Hey central PA, whereabouts? I work for Penn State (University park).

Personally, It has been a very long time since I've had lemon in mine. The last time was in a Club Weiss years ago.

For those of you who drink wheats and Hefeweizens but think it is "unmanly" to put fruit in your beer, aren't you contradicting yourself? Don't those styles have a banana flavor to begin with?
