I shared this with some friends in a brew group...they decided to make it with simply grapefruit, and said that it turned out amazing...and that the lemony hops really added a complexity to this beer recipe.
So two variation to a great Hefeweizen!

Do you have a source for Sorachi hops? The only place I knew was AHS and now they dont have it on the website anymore. I never heard of Motueka hops, are they also lemon flavor / aroma?

I buy in bulk and freeze, so I didnt realize how hard it was to get hops...but I did a quick search and found Sorachi Ace at:
https://morebeer.com/view_product/11776
http://www.farmhousebrewingsupply.co...idCategory=21#

As for Motueka Hops...they are a lemon lime flavor hops, and you can find them here:
http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/...ka-pellet-hops

I will keep googling to see if I can find then from the same vendor!

Thanks. I was planning on ordering from BMW at one point. I guess I should remember to pickup some Motueka from them.

I usually buy from AHS, NB

Yeah those are my first stops for supplies as well, but BMW is pretty good and the best place for bottles (they don't charge extra for shipping)!
