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 wheat poured a slightly cloudy, bright yellow colour with a bright white, frothy head. To the nose there are scents of corn, light yeast and a little hay. First sip was smooth and a little watery with flavours of lemon citrus and corn? Slight sour flavour aswell. Finish is bitter with light lemon cirus hop flavour lingering.

12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 8/7/2016. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, light banana, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasnat aromas with good balance of pale malt, spices, and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, light banana, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, spices, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/grainy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a good pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, spices, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Originally rated on 6/5/08. my favorite thing about this was the aroma, after pouring it I was reminded of fruit loops cereal, which i used to love. However that was the highlight, Average yellow body with thin head, except for a very slight citrus taste it was bland and watery. i will give this another shot in a few weeks because N.B. is a good company and deserves another try.

Draught, smallish head, light hazy deepish yellow color, spicey and light orange aroma, with a hint of wheat, citrusy wheaty flavor. ;ight to medium bitterness with a sour hint. Drinkable but a little muted and not too interesting.

I had this on draft at adnielsen’s wedding, which makes adnielsen’s wedding a valid place entry on RateBeer. I always scrolled past this stuff in the store but it is a pretty damn decent beer along the lines of a more subtle (and better) Blue Moon. It’s cloudy orange w/ a nice, fresh citrus and floral nose. There’s some mild yeast character w/ a bit of sweet orange and a light, creamy texture. I could definitely see myself drinking a lot of them--because I did.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Tasted in Breckenridge. Served in shaker with slice of lemon on the rim. Very clear in appearance. Thin sustained white head. Aroma was very faint citrus, light and airy - since filtered loses much of the phenols found in an unfiltered. Fairly watery taste - again citrus, but too light for my palate.

On tap at the Blue Canyon B&G in Golden, CO, this pours translucent straw into the glass with a tiny ring of suds that follow the pour. A faint wheat to the nose. Flavors are light wheat and grain, a very small amount of coriander and finish with tiny spice notes, very curt. Extremely light in the mouth, the zesty carbonation provides for a thirst quencher in the hot summer sun. Not bad for the style, but could be a tad more complex. Just this side of seltzery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
