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.

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.

Steve_0 (2526) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2013
On tap at the NB Hub at DIA. Pour is slightly hazy golden with a big white head and great lacing. Big wheaty and bready aroma, with nice lemon citrusy notes, orange peel, straw, and grass. Taste is very refreshing - wheaty, big lemon peel, oranges, and straw. Light body with crisp carbonation. Very straightforward and well built. True session wheats dont get much better than this.

ExpendableHero (742) - Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2013
This was pretty weak. Gold beer with a white head. Lively carbonation stands out. Aromas of some lemon peel. Tastes of lemon peel, some coriander, and wheat. Very muted flavors. Crisp, citric finish. Alcoholic water with lemon. Easy drinking, a good beer for a hot day, but there are better choices out there.

fontjt (77) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color with a nice foamy head on it. Scent is a little floral. Kinda has a classic beer scent to me. Light body with a light bitter taste. A little thin in the mouth but overall a really good summer beer.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Pours sparkling pale golden with a bubbly but short-lived white head and a steady stream of light carbonation. Slightly funky yeasty aroma with a hint of cheese. Decent wheat flavor with a little bit of citrus and spice. Nothing spectacular, but refreshing on a hot summer day.

Floback (522) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours golden with an inch of fluffy white head. The head recedes to about half its size within a minute. Strong aromas of cream, grains, and cheese. The flavor is surprisingly dull considering the aroma--maybe some banana in there--but it is smooth-drinking. Full carbonation & light body. Not too complex but a refreshing, highly drinkable brew for the summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. (Need label). Pours yellow with white head. Nose and taste of wheat malt, coriander, orange peel and light banana. Light bodied. Slight grain/metallic.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Plain wheaty base, light fruity and spicy notes, and a relatively clean finish. Not bad.

nealblind (661) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Clear yellow fizzy some head. Aroma of buttery yeast and bread. Tastes flowery, orangey with spritzy minerality. Wheat & briny flavors as well with hops at the end. Soft palate with some wheaty residuals. I really liked this one.

DialSquare (2498) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bomber from Proof. Clear yellow pour with thin bright white head. Aroma of wheat and coriander. Tastes are lemon, wheat, spices, orange peel, buttery, grainy, herbal. Metallic vibe. I don’t typically like wheats and this does nothing to dissuade that.
