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.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Reviewed 06/28/10 Poured to New Belgium tulip. A: Really light straw ale, almost neon. Exceptional clarity with continuous ribbons rising to surface dissipating quickly leaving no residual head. No lace. S: Grain scent with accents of orange and a hint of coriander oversurfaced with a wisp of hoppy resin. T: Totally caught off guard by the corn addition to the flavor of the ale. I’m often put off by coriander adjuncted beer, but this accentuates the beer quite well. The overall flavor profile of this beer reminds me of (dare I say?)...Cap’n Crunch! M: Light-Medium bodied beer with prickly carbonation skips over palate only to leave mouth cool and dry at finish. D: This is a beer I would recommend to a Blue Moon fan for transition to Micros. Especially during a hot August afternoon. Serving type: bottle 12-20-2010

hotstuff (4274) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 8-02-2009 (Best Before 09Oct09 Bottle) This beer forms a small white head that mostly diminished, transparent yellow body, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, citrus hops, sweet, orange, and coriander. The Taste is sweet, wheat malt, and coriander. The Palate is sprite and this beer is light bodied. Overall, this beer is very easy to drink...almost too easy, session beer at most.

On tap @ New Belgium. Pale straw pour with a white head. Light malt aroma, lemon peel, grass, and a subtle sweetness. Flavor is somewhat dry. Lemon peel, light grass, and some wheat. A nice pale malt flavor.

EtTuCthulhu (1135) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2013
The color of this beer is a clear yellow with a large white head, and the aroma blends the scents of lemons, wheat, and general citrus. The taste is quite sweet and mildly sour, and the palate combines a medium body, thin and slick texture, soft carbonation, and a long, lightly sweet finish.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
transparent gold, thin bubbly white head drops to oily cap. Vitamin c nose, light wheat, very watery. Doughy flavor, light vitamin c and candy, refreshing carbonation and thin body keep it light, but boring otherwise.
