I respectfully disagree. I've made this batch a few times and its a Belgian Wit (Hoegaarden) way more than an American Wheat (Blue Moon.) Taste and style guides agree. Either way it is very delicious. This recipe, and primarily this yeast, will give you a healthy clove flavor not found in Blue Moon.

If you ferment it with a wheat yeast (I've used S-04 with great results) your finished product will be much closer to Blue Moon.

The first time I made this I was expecting Blue Moon and was sorely disappointed. However, I did end up with a very satisfying Belgian Wit. I like to make this with Wyeast 3942 for more fruity notes and softer spice flavors.

Made this last weekend. I am wondering if I need to rack to the secondary ? Or just leave it for another week and bottle .

No secondary necessary. I did a 3 week primary. Ended up fine

It's a damn good recipe. Not blue moon, but very tasty. One of my favorites by far.

Just finished the boil on this. I had to sub US goldings for EK as I had none on hand. I also added 1oz of bitter orange peel instead of .75 oz, and I also will be using WLP 410 (Belgian Wit II) instead of the WLP 400. It smells so good, the best smelling beer that I have made to this point. The orange and coriander aroma is excellent!
