COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Sunray Wheat is a German style unfiltered wheat beer brewed with a touch of local, Georgia Coast, Tupelo honey from the Savannah Bee Company. It’s inviting banana/sweet clove like aroma gives way to a pleasant, clean finish with a hint of tartness.

Served from a freshly tapped keg about 1 hour from brewery (March 2011 - from notes). For the most part, I don’t care for the hefeweizen style, and this beer is no exception. To a good extent, I’ve tried to allow for that in this review, largely comparing this beer against other hefeweizens. A: Typical for style: clear golden with a short-lived white head that leaves a dash of lace. S: Rather floral and fruity (banana), but primarily wheat. T: Again, typical for style, but with a bit more sweetness and fruitiness. M: light body, as expected

A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet oxidized malt with light grassy hops, past its prime. In mouth, a sweet fruity oxidized malt with light banana, cloves, sad state...

Taken from notes 3 June 2011 -- Drank on tap and shortly after a Paulaner Hef, so my palattte was slightly askew for this brew. Pretty solid from start to finish, but as a wheat just didn’t have the extra ’oomf’.

Bottle. Cloudy bright golden straw yellow with a minimal head. Actually some banana, slight sweet fruits and hay. Some light sweetness in the flavor, again some hay and seems banana dominant. Lighter soft body.

Pours golden, light haze but not much for an unfiltered. A lot of citrus and banana on the nose. Orange is the main flavor component as well - not much spice. A little too creamy for the style as well. Not bad, but definitely one of the lesser Terrapins.

9/21/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Lighlty hazed golden pour with a small off-white head. Light phenolics and sweet citrus on the aroma as well as the flavor, but with a touch of creaminess. Laid back and refreshing.

Do all of Terrapin’s beers have a sticky, kind of creamy palate? For an unfiltered wheat, that is definitely unnecessary. Otherwise, this isn’t a bad beer. A bit too much tropical fruit sweetness, but the appearance and the aroma are very nice.

This was purchased at The Caboose for tasing. The Sunray is a wheat beer not a beer that I know much about. The beer poured with a small head that dissapated. The color is a hazy gold. The sweet taste is not my favorite in a beer. The finish had bananas in the aftertaste.

First pour resulted in a nice head, yellow honey appearance, and the aroma of juniper and citrus. Taste has bit of a bite moderate carbonation, first hints of pine, grapefruit and rye. Overall a good session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
