Sunray Wheat Beer

Since the Sixers and Flyers are sucking (and don't get me wrong, I still expect playoff runs from each), let's talk a little December baseball! You've probably heard that the Phillies got pitching stud and Cy Young Award Winner Roy Halladay this past week. It's too bad they decided they didn't have enough cash or prospects to keep Philly favorite (and also Cy Young winner) Cliff Lee, too. What a dynamic duo they would have made! But in the end, I guess they were worried Lee was going to leave for nothing after next year so better to get Halladay while they could. This guy kicks ass, and I fully expect the Phillies to avenge their World Series loss in 2010. If you don't like the Phillies, well, hmmm, I guess you can learn!

Starting the weekend off with a Sunray Wheat Beer brewed by Terrapin Beer Company in Athens, Georgia. Wasn't sure which beer to choose tonight but considering the two days of big rain we've had here, I decided on the one with the turtle on the label chilling out in the sun on his sunflower perch. The label also says "TASTE THE SUNSHINE!"

The aroma is mild with wheat and light honey. Flavors start out with wheat and banana as the most prominent. You will then taste some honey, fruity pear and even bubble gum flavors. The light initial sweetness is then taken away by some hops, balanced nicely. The flavors are very nice, and this is a super easy drinker. You finish with honey left on your palate. A pretty simple beer, but I liked it and you will too!
