COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Because rain is sometimes scarce in the islands it is occasionally referred to as "Liquid Sunshine". Our Sunshine Wheat is an unfiltered wheat beer that we spice with coriander, cardamom, and orange peels. A great beer to kick back with after a day at the beach or a day out on the waves.

kaser (2737) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Had on draft in St. John’s tap room. Served with lemon. .smells lemony. Taste is horrendous. Bitter unpleasant and rude. Just terrible. You should see my face and how repulsed I am

Sammy (8675) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2013
Somewhat sour wheat but I would agree that I would drink this if I were out a day on the beech. Not super drinkable. Pure yellow bodied.JoshuaR’s bottle.

solidfunk (4026) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 21, 2013
Mostly just a lager. Little sense of wit. Finishes with a little caramel malt. Pours clear with no head or lacing. Slight astringency at finish. Bottle from brewpub in St. John.

Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Serving: Draft at the brewpub and in 12 oz. bottles. It pours a hazy yellow with a slight white head. The nose is over ripe oranges, lemon, and spice with slight wheat notes. The flavor is light and citrusy but leaves you wanting a bit more. In the bottle it can be downright flavorless. Light body with a clean finish. Meh.

crhensel (138) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Poured a cloudy yellow with medium froth. Nose hinted at the spices and I citrus as you would expect form the style. Slick in the mouth, the favors promised didn’t fully materialize and the whole thing ended up a little bland. It was nice t try something from a different area, but it’s obvious these are brewed for refreshment in the Caribbean heat, not necessarily to embody a particular style.
