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.

Ok I had waited a while to try this offering from New belgium, but the price was right and it had been a hot sweaty day at work. Comes in the usual New Belgium brown bottle..sheaf of wheat on the label. Beer pours very nicelly certainly golden sunshine gold colour with a fair sized pure white head..that dissapeared fast but left some excellent lacing. Very nice fresh aroma of doughy wheat and zesty coriander..nicely done. MM nice first taste on the tongue is a refreshing sweet malt..followed by a rather thick wheaty taste then finished of with the cxoriander and zingy orange..very nice,. Very good feel on the tongue well balanced beer. Very drinkable beer indeed..despite the bad reviews I thouroughly enjoyed this.

A very friendly soft beer with light fruit. The spice provides a bit of depth, but be assured it doesn't get too deep. A chugger that I liked quite a bit.

orangeish and sweet smelling, a hint of corriander. The taste is sweet, with orange and corriander. The palate was slightly thin

Aroma is characterized by coriander with a slight citrus zestiness. Appearance is smilar to most other filtered wheats. Flavor is good wehatery flavor with hints of coriander and citrus punch. Mouthfeel is ok.

Not the best looking beer from NB the appearance is clear golden. The beer pours a pretty big white head that almost completely dissipates and there is very light lacing. Aroma is light and spicy. Flavor is crisp with light hop bitterness and a little orange and spice. Easy to drink and refreshing.

I sampled this on draught at New Belgium's brewery in Fort Collins, CO. Appearance: This brew has a pale straw color and is relatively clear. The other Wit's I've had are cloudy Aroma: The nose has citrus and yeasty notes in it. Flavor: this is a slightly crisp, hot weather beer. Definitely something you'd have after mowing the lawn

This is a great beer on a hot summer's day. Pale straw color with cloud like head. Lemon, citrus, and yeast aromas. I thought there was a lemon in the beer. Citrus flavors with hint of honey. Light bodied.
