COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As invigorating as the morning rays of the summer sun, Sunrise Weissbier satisfies when the heat is on, too. This unfiltered, Bavarian style ale is true to its origins with all ingredients except for the water having been imported from Germany. It remains unfiltered to feature the tangy, fruity flavors of its unique yeast. The imported German malt contributes greatly to add a crisp, citric snap that makes this beer a superb summertime refresher.

Wife ordered this daft at Victory brewpub, I snageed a few sips. Served in a Weisen glass, hazy light amber golden color with white head. Aroma of sweet pale malt, wheat, light banana/clove yeast note and some citrus. Taste adds some grass and a light earthiness to the aroma notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, dry, soft with slight bitter note on finish. Well done.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pours clear straw with an orange hue and big creamy white frothy head. Aroma brings some nice yeast gassy funk and sweet golden malts. Flavor brings refreshing clean crispy wheat like malts with a balanced crisp body. ABV is now 4.3 not as advertised on the site.

jbruner (2316) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours a translucent gold on tap with fluffy white head that doesn’t really stick on the way down. Aroma of german esters and wheat, slight citrus, taste follows minus the citrus. Bubbly and dry, easy to drink, but not a great example of the style.

least transparent, least effervescent of three, longest lasting spotty white head+ring. Nose more wheat than mad king, less banana and more bubblegum esters. Flavor highlights wheat more, more simple but less sugar, dryer across mid before light grain and fruit finish, even field-like, soft and creamy texture highlights malt better than mad king. And I don’t even like wheat beers.

Whirlwind v. Mad King v. Sunrise all on tap at brewery go:

1. Sunrise
2. Mad King
3. Whirlwind

Surprised I haven’t rated this as I’ve enjoyed it from the brewpub many times, still reviewing this from memory though. Pours a fairly hazy straw gold with a fluffy white head. Color is a touch darker and hazier than the Whirlwind. Nose is aromatic esters, dry earthy yeast, light citrus, fresh wheat grains. Mouth is wonderfully fluffy and soft, noticeably more so than Whirlwind or Mad King. Light esters, fresh cracked grains, a really good yeast strain on the finish where soil, grass, and other dry flavors shine. Unfiltered, more complex and interesting than Whirlwind. Softer and way less hop-forward than Mad King. Fresh on tap this is wonderful stuff.
