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.

This beer is very personal to me. I love it and it reminds me of college. Great nose.

Nothing boring about this beer at all. It has the most complex flavor of any wheat or hefe I have tasted. It goes great with a slice of lemon or orange floating in the glass. The filtered clear look in the glass is slightly off-putting, but one sniff or sip will fix any minor quibbles.

My favorite beer. I have to go out of state to find it but it is just wonderful. Great wheat taste and it is very smooth.

One of the very best of the wheat beers. The orange peel really comes through. Highly recommended.

My favorite draft beer ever. Fruity aroma, mild bitterness, and a wonderful aftertase of orange rinds and coriander. Best served chilled, not cold.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 On tap and in the can. Pours a bit cloudy yellow appearance with an off whit head. Not a ton of cloudiness. Thereís some coriander spice in the nose along with some orange peel. A fair amount of citrus in the nose. Aroma doesnít have that nasty cilantro / herbal / spice rack smell going on that many overly spiced witbiers have. The flavor has a hint of tartness, plenty of citrus, nice wheat character, and spicy yeast notes. Not all that sweet. Dry, citrusy finish. Moderate to high carbonation. Kind of rough mouth feel. Nice orange aftertaste. Clean and uncomplicated. The easiest beer for me to pound a bunch of when Iím out with the college crowd or when Iím @ home on my deck or when Iím camping. One of the best American wheat beers out there. Over any given year, I pound over 100 of these bad boys. If you drink multiple cases of a beer over a year, it only makes sense if you rate it 4.5+.

Golden and white-topped with the look of a crisp pilsner. Even the aroma is more reminiscent of a Czech beer than a witbier. The flavor is vaguely yeasty, but wonderfully malty and subtley zesty, an understated and well balanced, crisp and cool beer. Excellent.
