4/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured into an Allagash chalice.

A- Pours a bright transparent golden yellow hue. A good inch of crisp white foam creates a head. Sits an opaque light gold hue after pouring in yeast. Foamy layer stayed through whole beer.

S- Aroma is lots of hay and crisp citrus zest (lemon mostly). A light musk is present along with a good deal of lighter yeasty aroma. Real fresh, bright & refreshing smelling. Really good.

T- Very similar to aroma. The citrus zest and hay notes are the strongest. the yeast becomes more mild and the lighter musk is basically gone. Much simpler then aroma. Good.

M- Quite light. Very easy to drink. Some sharp zest on palate. Lightly lingers for a short bit. Could have some more body on this one to balance, especially with how zesty it is. A thicker then water feel, but not much.

O- Very much on the lighter side for a Hefeweizen. A really good take on the still that leans more towards a wit or belgian pale in some regards. A great summer brew.

4.3/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Living within an arms reach of this brewery I frequent a meal or two every so often as a cheat for my diet. During the spring and summer months when Sunrise is on tap it's a given that I will have at least one!!

I'm not big on wheat beers, but to me Sunrise is easily my most favorite to readily drink.

It has a hazy, almost ripe orangey-yellow to it that you can't see through due to it being an unfiltered beer. The head somewhat laces around the edges of the glass which is not always typical of a wheat style.

The smell is fantastic and refreshing. It has a slight citrus smell but nothing overbearing or out of the ordinary.

The taste of this beer is beautifully assembled by the yeast and malts fermenting rather than the added ingredients for flavor. You get that same typical clove, citrus and off banana taste to it; yet none of those are involved in the brewing process.

Mouthfeel is not overly carbonated nor under carbonated, it's just right. Being unfiltered some beers can leave some sediment in your mouth from time to time... This is not one of them unless you're drinking it from a bottle.

If you ever have the chance to give this a shot, it's a sure-fire thumbs up!!
