Getting ready to bottle Berlbrew's version (more or less) of Oberon567's "Wild Dog Days of Summer Ale". Beginner question is, what style would you call this brew? Would like to know so if I take some to the club meeting, and someone asks me "Whatcha got here?" I don't have to say "Uuuhh... beer?"
Thanks!
Ron B

A summer ale?!

No really, post the recipe, including yeast, and process. That'll help.

Call it a Summer ale or Lemon Wheat. Technicly what you have made is an American Wheat beer. BJCP category 6D http://www.bjcp.org/2008styles/style06.php

Had a suspicion that it may be a wheat but wanted to be sure! Thanks for the input, one step closer to being a pompous, condescending, beer snob! YEA!!!!
