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.

Needs more of a head. Darker than most, and unfiltered. Victory is so into hopping their beers that I was worried they’d overhop this weisse, but one taste and my fears were allayed. Like a ray of morning sunshine, this tangy, citrusy wheat really delivers on taste. It reminds me a tad of Capital Kloster Weizen, but less citrusy.

Awesome hefe, cloudy & hazy gold color, huge fluffy white head, yeast & banana in the nose, more yeast & banana in the flavors along with bubble gum & citrus notes, crisp & very drinkable, very enjoyable wheat beer, one of the best

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 This is just another fabulous brew from the boys at Victory. They got an absolute home run with this wheat beer. This wheat is free fo sediment and it has a fabulous crisp wheat taste. Refreshing and very reminiscent of the wheats of Bavaria, I would never know I was not drinking a fabulous German wheat. Close your eyes and you can really feel like your drinking in the Hofbrauhaus. I don’t even like wheat beers and this beer exceeded all my expectations and then some. One of the best.

A wheat beer with a summer kick. Spicy and fruity at the beginning with a nice smooth unfiltered end.

12oz bottle. Pours a very hazy golden, thick frothy head with big lacing. Was foaming harsh out of the bottle, took awhile to pour it all. Strong clove aroma, slight banana to it, sweet overall, also has a tiny bit of the "wet blanket." Very clove-y flavor, some very minor bitterness, and slight fruit. Noticeable but not strong grain flavor. High carbonation, slick texture, medium body.

Wow. Doesn’t get much better then this. Taste of banana and coriander and spice. Brilliant for a warm day in the shade.

MMmmmm goood beer. Served with a nice, thick, foamy, frothy off white head that lasts a while and good lacing. Color is an almost clear yellow amber and lots of bubble trails. Aroma is a divine blend of malt, banana, spices, bubblegum, yeast. Flavor is classic Bavarian Weisse - malt, citrus, yeast, bit of sweet tart. Body is very good although still a little soft and great carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of good length, clean and slow taper. Very good, session beer.

Draft. Hazy yellow, nice head. Clove and banana aroma. Fruity flavor, with pear, touch of banana, and a balanced spice finish. This is a really well done German Hefe.
