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.

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

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.

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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Pellucid yellow color with little head and diminishing lacing. Malty citrus aroma, strong notes of grapefruit and light floral hops, sweet fruit (apples), in the end a fresh (clean) diaper smell. Coriander flavors with a sweet honey flavor. Dry musky finish, very refreshing. New belgium always surprises me with their styles, I totally expected this to be an american wheat.

Medium head, Golden color. Sediment free. Some malt in the taste. Some orange too. Nothing too special.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Modest head, a clear golden color with a citrusy aroma. Light, sweet and with a tang of orange but I don't really connect with the coriander. Very smooth finish. Refreshing but just kind of ho hum. Maybe I'm just spoiled by their trippel.

Pours a surprisingly light and clear yellow with a nice, white head that leaves decent lacing all down the glass. It really looks more like pilsener than wit with the tiny bubbles, clear body and white head. The aroma is has some nice malty, bready notes and some decently strong spicy hops. The mouthfeel is surprisingly smooth, considering all the bubbles. The flavor brings us back to the witbier, at least slightly. Wheaty flavors come through, with a touch of sweet spices. However, it hardly reaches the level of Victory with all it's brilliance. It's not all bad, but certainly not the best. Easy to drink, but off from my knowledge of the style.
