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.

tap. notes of softed toast, creamed wheat, touch of vanilla. soft herbs. touch of overripened pear. pretty good, but not as good as weihenstephenaoisf or ayigiger hefeweizen IMHO

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.

Floral, banana, wheat with some lemon citrus. That about sums it up the flavor and aroma. Fairly fizzy makes it feel somewhat soda like.

color is straw gold, not as hazy as most, aroma of banana. clove, wheat, and coriander, taste of banana, clove, wheat, and bitter orange, high carbonation makes for an champagne feel, very good representation of the style

ddemmingjr (790) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2012
pours hazy straw, two finger off white head. Banana, clove, grass and herbal notes on the nose. Lemon, yeast, wheat, sweet malts. reminiscent of Franziskaner. higher carbonation, crisp, refreshing and solid for the style.

callmemickey (3895) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Reviewed from notes (2007). A: Hazy yellow with a moderate white head. S: Citrus, wheat and banana power forward T: Lemon-Wheat standard for a hefeweizen with a hint of spice that adds some charm M: Light and smooth.. goes down clean O: Refreshing and drinkable when the weather is mild/warm

Bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head. There is a lot of carbonation in this beer. Smells floral. Tastes like a light wheat with a belgian flair. This isn’t my favorite style but I like it.

On draft, poured a cloudy orange with a decent fluffy whit head. Aromas of banana, clove, and a touch of wheat. Flavor has orange, clove, some spice, and wheat. A nice beer to enjoy while cooking out.

A light gold color, smooth with a clean finish. Not a strong over powering taste. Cost is on the high side.
