I have read comments though saying you can get a lemony finish from wheat malt. A lot of recipes that are online use red wheat malt...whatever that is. I think the result will be in using a "non" wheat beer yeast as it's usually the yeast that drives the flavour in wheat beers..

Red wheat has a bit more protein than white wheat and tastes a bit fuller, but I suspect as much as anything it's typical of the US Mid West and so it's "local" for 3 Floyds.
