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.

I've drank this beer for years, and enjoy it, but have never considered it a Wit. The color seems wrong, I'm pretty sure its filtered also, and I don't taste any orange peel. As a hard-to-catagorize summertime wheat brew, though, it's light and refreshing.

Orange and cilantro. Light and refreshing. This is my favorite beer for a sunny day. It tastes like bottled sun.

Pleasant diversion for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Little to no head - ginger ale-like light golden appearance. Slight fruit in the nose - but very faint. Crisp, frash flavor - nothing really jumps out about it - would make a good outdoor session beer. Goes down extremely smooth.

Pours a pale lemon color with good head and lacing. Filtered. Bit of a lemon/spice aroma and taste. Vacation 03

Great witbier. Sehr schone. Probably one of my top 4 wheats. True to the style with a nose of coriander, orange zest, and light malt and a bright, acidic flavor that is ideal in a white beer. Top off with the yeast.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2003
A sediment-free clear white beer, with a nice sustained head. The aroma is all most exactly what you'd expect, wheat, orange peel and coriander; flavor is all most all coriander, with a hint of orange and wheat after a few sips. Not at all complex, but good enough I guess, and fairly clean...I remember this being a sediment beer in the dim recesses of the past, as it should be- still, I think I prefer this to my first tasting of Michigan brewed Celis white.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 17, 2003
Extremely bubbly, light yellow color, fairly clear. Clean, sweet spearmint aroma. Clean and minty on the palate, fruity lemon flavors are very light. Dry in the finish. This was a complete disappointment because the label suggested something like a Hoegaarden but it's not close. Virtually no haze, lacking in flavor and aroma and thin on the palate. If I wasn't expecting a wit but a filtered US wheat I might have rated higher.

Good marks on this beer. First off, I was drinking an icy bottle on the veranda of an old Dallas bar, under the live oaks. Just about any beer would have done the trick, but at 90% humidity and 95 degrees F, this was particularly refreshing. Good fruity wheat aroma, without being funky. Didn't really get the whole appearance, as I was drinking out of a bottle. Clear, and I like the yoke around the neck of the bottle. To-the-point label. Zesty coriander and orange, fruity beer. Zippy carbonation in the palate, and a good mouthfeel. This tasted like wit, but it was totally clear-filtered. This would have done nicely with a slice of citrus, but I chose not to take one.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2003
real pale yellow body. big white head disappeared too quickly, nice belgian lace though. Light, sweet belgian wheat with coriander and citrus notes, some fruity esters. Sticky sweet, slick, spicy and wheaty. silky smooth then cloys. Some dry cereal grain and more light, tart spiciness on finish. +

Color is extremly light gold with a light white head. aroma is wheaty. Flavor is really fruity, citrusy, and wheaty with a light and crisp palate.
