12oz bottle given to me by fisherman34, it's been sitting around a while, I'd better get to drinking! Poured into a weiss glass.
Beautiful pour, almost three inches of fluffy head off a relatively mild pour. Pale gold-straw yellow, medium carbonation, hazey and full of sediment. Tasty looking. Aroma is spicy, a little musty with banana and pear fruitiness. Peppery noble hops, a bit of earth and foliage.
Taste is fairly well balanced, with a Granny Smith apple tartness, a bit of lemon all backing up a mellow wheaty/yeasty fruity backbone. Lots of peppery zippiness all over the palate. Floral sweetness as well. This is a very flavourful weiss, leaning a bit more to the sour than I prefer, but it does keep you coming back for more. Medium body, fairly wet but buzzing on the tongue. This is drinkable in quantity, very enjoyable, it's a little out of season but I'm still liking it very much.

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!!
