New Belgium Sunshine
Posted by dugpark on April 28, 2008
I have all of this great, strong, high ABV beer in the beer fridge and what do I decide to go for? New Belgium Sunshine wheat beer. Not that it turned out to be a bad thing at all, though… just an interesting decision based on what is in my fridge. :)
Here’s how it went… my son opened the bottle for me (at-a-boy) and I started to pour what really surprised me… a very lager-looking wheat beer. I paused… kept pouring until the bottle was drained and there was a 1/2 inch head in the glass. I proceeded to explain to my son why it was good to have a bit of a head on the beer and he just kind of looked at me like, “what the hell are you talking about?”. I often ask myself that, so I had no answer. Anyhow… first word that hit my mind as I drank this (not knowing what to expect) was “mild”. Very, very mild. Second word was “refreshing”. Very, very refreshing. I don’t think I tasted coriander or enough citrus to call it out, but this filtered wheat beer is going to be outstanding this summer as I need something cool, mild, and refreshing to keep me going.
