Kit wanted to replicate the tartness in Blue Moon ale.
I am not sure exactly which ingredient it was, but I brewed a Belgian style ale a while back and all of my friends were
subjected to a taste test comparison using Blue Moon itself.
The results, not only could they not tell the difference,
they chose my homebrew as being better 9 out of 10!!
The recipe I used follows. Nothing special about the procedure, just your ordinary extract homebrew.
It was (didn't last long) one of the better brews I have made as far as a extract brew goes. Clear, crisp, semi-sweet and had a wonderful spicy yet floral aroma.
Hope this helps you out,
