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.

Grassy citrus like aroma, with a bit if the lager foot finish smell. In the flavor get some if the orange peel and coriander flavors but they are subtle. Mostly grassy wheat beer with a bit if citrus. Pretty simple beer overall, but drinkable and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fairly bland aroma. Picking up a little bit of honey on bread. Taste is the same with a bubbly texture and a sweet finish. Not much to this one. Ok.

New Belgium Sunshine is good but a little light on flavor. Pour is a nice amber and a pretty decent head but it dissipates a little too fast. Aroma is strong and somewhat like a hop with citrus notes. This too disappears with the head. Taste is fruity with maybe a light dose of spice but nothing outstanding. Sunshine is a decent session beer with just enough uniqueness to keep it interesting.

Sunshine is a great name for this straw-colored, light-bodied beer. It isn’t particularly heady, but it produces a nice thin layer of white foam. The flavor is pretty standard for a wheat ale, but there seems to be just a bit more fruitiness and spiciness than you’d expect. The notes of citrus and coriander come through quite clearly. When paired with the strength of the aforementioned flavors, the carbonation can be overly fizzy. Nitpicking aside, Sunshine is a refreshing choice for a day spent, well, in the sun.
