The Sunshine Wheat Beer from New Belgium Brewing Company in Fort Collins, Colorado pours out a pale yellow in color with good clarity and is topped with a large, foamy, white head that slowly reduces down to a film. On the nose, coriander, honeyed sweetness and some citrus. In the mouth, a nice balance of flavors with none overpowering the other. Slightly sweet with good honey like flavor mingled with lemony-orange, coriander and wheat grain. A little tart and peppery towards the end. Light bodied. Low carbonation. Splotches of lacing on the glass. Clean mouthfeel. Moderate length finish with balanced flavor.
A very drinkable, smooth, balanced wheat beer. Perfect for a hot day and very refreshing. Recommended.
