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 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.

BBB63 (6443) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2003
On tap: Clear straw hue with a small head and some lacing. Spices, lemon, fresh hops, and light yeast aroma. Taste started with a tart fruit and wheaty tone then developed a light hop presence midway. Crisp and clean finish. Thin-bodied, dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A very refreshing summer witbeer, darn good for a filtered wheat.

Straw color and thin head, but lively carbonated body. Very clear. Smells like fresh apples, pears, and coriander. Flavors include oranges and shredded wheat plus subtle malt and hops. Light-body but very smooth and refreshing. Rather like an American Wheat (aside from the coriander and orange peel), this beer would be an excellent brew if it wasn't filtered.

Light wheat aroma. Clear pale golden in color. Slightly sour and bitter with a very short finish. Very dry and light on the palate.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JUL 28, 2003
A great summer beer. A classic wheat. It reminded ne of other belgium wheats without bieng to yeasty. This beer definitly raises the bar with wheat beers.

Sampled one on a recent trip West. A good, drinkable brew. I am not greatly familiar with this style, but may pursue it some more now.

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Honey golden appearance with moderate carbonation and a thick airy head. A whispher of orange wheat with a thread of coriander in the aroma and lightly flavorful of the same. A step or two up from Blue Moon. This is a very laid back brew, even for a wit. It has an Am. standard mouthfeel, but with flavoring. I did find this beer somewhat appealing.

A very typical witbier. Nothing to inspiring to write about here just an average lightly drinkable summer time session beer. Very light and palatable, lightly hoppy with strong scents of fruity sweetness, but when you first open the bottle, I swear to god, it smeels like baby wipes, or that diaper smell. So once you get around that, it is okay.
