I'm brewing an Orange Wheat /w coriander next weekend. Something I cobbled together after reading some "blue moon clone" threads.

Also using US-05, just to keep the neutral profile and not get too Belgian-y.

Nothing like a light, crisp orange wheat in the dead of winter!

Anchor's Summer wheat is a great wheat beer. KInd of funny that it comes from a city that does not really have a summer.

I like wheat. I'm going to do a wheat/rye ale generously hopped with centennial and Amarillo this spring. I'd also love to do a dunkelweizen at some point. A little wheat is also nice for adding body and head retention to some styles. Those are my thoughts on wheat.

Wheat and Rye. Thats pretty awesome of a combo. Like two extremes. Mellow vs. Bold in the ultimate showdown.

Warmer months I like to brew a 60 pale malt to 40 wheat malt ratio ale with about a pound of honey in the mix. Maybe throw a little crystal in there at times.
