I was hoping for some haziness in his beer, but I found none. Sunshine pours clear as well ..sunshine. A very clear straw color, and really looks like a decent lager, which is too bad considering it is a wheat. The smell was light and crisp with a bit of graininess. There wasn't a whole lot to the taste in this beer. It tasted like a watered down wheat. There was a very subtle hint of spices that were so weak I couldn't place them. I was hoping to find some complex yeast flavors, but found none. The bottle says it was brewed in Belgian wheat tradition, but how can that be if they don't bother with the secondary fermentation. All in all this seems sort of like the diet coke of wheat beers. If you want something light and refreshing, that isn't a lager, this is for you, but if you want an interesting and tasty wheat beer look elsewhere.
