McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 71 of 140: A pint of Liquid Sunshine Wheat I had at the McMenamins Old Church and Pub, located in the southern Portland metro area city of Wilsonville, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This easy-drinking wheat beer displays a prominent Northwest hop aroma and a gentle touch of bitterness. Aromas of citrus and straw swirl above its dense head. The addition of unmalted wheat to the grist adds a smooth and creamy malt character to the beer, resulting in greater complexity and layering. While hoppier than a standard wheat beer, Liquid Sunshine exhibits superb balance and drinkability. This beer is ideal for those seeking something on the lighter side but who demand more out of their wheat beers.” Measurements: 5.2% ABV • 36 IBU
The first time I tried this was in March 2017, but I forgot to take a picture. Five months later I ordered a sample again just so I could take a photo of it! But they were out of the Confessional Kölsch that I wanted to order, so I got a whole pint of the Liquid Sunshine. My notes from those days read: “It was OK, but a bit bland ... not worth getting a whole pint. The second time around I squeezed the juice from the lemon slice into the beer and let the slice float in thee beer ... that helped the blandness a bit.” August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
