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.

Bottle pour light to avg gold with thin white head. Nose Belgian ester, candy, clove and spice. Taste bubble gum, ester, clove, reasonable spicy. I think this is one of the better beers I had from this brewery.

60minuteman (1278) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Aroma and flavors of funk, wheat, earthy malt, mild hop, lemon and watermelon. Full body while the malt dominates the finish. Aggressive clinginess, thick. Just ok.

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.
