COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Does it get any sunnier than two people in love? Sunshine Wheat came into the world as Wedding Wheat, a beer Jeff brewed in celebration of his wedding to Kim. A filtered wheat beer, Sunshine Wheat swirls in the mouth with ripples of coriander and orange peel tartness, settling into a sea of honey and apple tones.

Bought this one for my wife; thought I should give it a try. Aroma is not great - some surprising skunkiness and floor cleaner type aroma. There is some orange peel and wheat, but that is after the unpleasant smells. Looks very light, watery, nearly clear with a good amount of white foam that leaves some lacing. Taste is weak, almost medicine-like with hardly any trace of wheat, just watered down orange peel. Palate is ok, better than I thought it would be. I thought it would be an upgraded version of Blue Moon, which my wife also likes. If you want to re-create this beer, take some Bud Select 55 and throw an orange rind in it. I was not expecting to like this beer, but I thought it would be at least drinkable - Iím not a total beer snob. Donít buy this.

Reviewed from notes. This beer was poured into pint glasses most of the time Iíve had it, but once I had it in a weizen glass and the head was exceptionally larger by a good whopping 2 fingers. The appearance was a hazy golden orange color with some light yellow tinges around the edges. The head was about a fingerís worth of white foaminess that quickly died and left some light lacing. The smell had some light coriander and orange peel combining into an earthy and somewhat floral sort of way. The taste was a sweet citrus of sorts with a filling wheatiness rounding it out. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionable quality surrounding it. Overall, this was a decent American Pale Wheat Ale, nothing to go bonkers about, but Iíve had this several times with cheese burgers and pulled pork sandwiches and it went pretty good.

Pour light golden straw with a thin white head. Aroma is of wheat, spices, citrus, and sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma but a bit more robust. Has a medium-light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a Sam dry, mostly sweet, medium-short finish. Overall, a deccent wheat ale that is a pretty nice summer beer.

lefossoyeur (453) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Straw blonde with minimal white head. Pleasant light wheaty aromas with hints of oranges. Light bodied, average carbonation, slight tartness, very easy drinking, but mainly uneventful...

mbgrayson (543) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a light gold, with thin white head. Aroma is thinly of wheat and hops. Taste is slightly of citrus, otherwise a basic wheat beer. Smooth and drinkable. Not great, but better than a macro.

Draft at the CO airport. Pours hazy yellow gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like wheat, bubblegum, creaminess. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like creamy, grassy wheat.

An over all good American Wheat beer by a brewery that knows how to brew one of my first and favorite wheat beers
