Clear (with a slight chill haze) light golden color with HUGE fluffy white head. It took a few pours to get the whole thing in the glass. I expect my hefeweizens to be a bit hazy.
Beautiful coriander, clove, lemon, and spice. This is the epitome of hefeweizen aroma!
Tart lemon right up front with the classic coriander an clove. Slight earthy hop bitterness with nice floral characteristics. This is a nice blend of modern and classic styles.
There is a nice solid carbonation with a moderate mouthfeel.
This is a fantastic beer. The aromas are spot on for the classic style and the flavors add a nice American flare. I think I like the whirlwind wit a bit more than this one, but I'll be sure to pick this one up again next year when it's back in season.

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!!
