Totally agree.

OP: look up Biernunchers "Blue Balls" on this forum. Way better than blue moon and it didn't last on my shelf long at all. Also is a quick turnaround.

Here is my fruit beer recipe: http://www.beersmithrecipes.com/view...ruit-cream-ale

It's a cream ale base but I found the pre-fruit flavor to be quite a bit like a flavorful bud light.

I've done blueberry and peach, both delicious and very popular.

Norhern's cream ale kit is pretty light and smooth. It uses Rice for some of the Malt which contributes to the light color and flavor. Worth a try, and very drinkable for you if she doesnt like it.

I would try a golden/blonde ale if she likes beer with light taste. A Kolsch is another option. You can get a lot of the golden ales with various fruit flavors such as peach, honey, raspberry, lemon. I have had several girls try my cider and they loved it even if they like sweet drinks or bud light/coors. The cider is EdWort's recipe and it comes out similar to a dry wine.

I made a basic wheat beer and added 5 #'s of fresh local strawberries to it and it has been a HUGE hit with my wife and all of her lady friends who have tried it. My wife is not a Bud or Miller Light drinker either though. But she is not a big beer drinker period for that matter and she loved my Strawberry Wheat.

3/4 oz Hallertau for bittering (60 minutes)
1/4 oz Hallertau for flavor (last 15 minutes)

Dry yeast: US-05
Wyeast: 1056
White Labs: California Ale

Important: Crush 3 Beano tablets (yes, Beano) and add when you add the yeast.
Be careful not to touch the tablets from the bottle and crush with very clean and sanitized utensils.

The Beano tablets make the beer finish very clean.

It also helps to use half distilled water and half regular water (the water you usually use for brewing).

The absence of aroma hops, the beano tablets and using some distilled water will make the finish extremely clean and very enjoyable for light beer drinkers.

this is from an old tread I asked in 2008 (back then under the name BPD) and Forrest from Austin Homebrew replied with this recipe. everyone loved the beer who were Lite beer drinkers
