A light gold color with a fluffy head that didn't hold up for too long. Quite brilliant and clear for a wiessbier
A sweet bread aroma comes forth, with a pronounced banana and hints of spice in the back.
Light bread upfront with a muted sweetness, followed by a bouquet of fruity notes of banana, lemon, citrus and pineapple, with a dash of some peppery spice. Finish is short and dry, leaving just a faint metallic bitterness in the palate
Crisp and light bodied, with a lively carbonation that gives much of the texture
A fruity and refreshing weissbier, with all the characteristic banana and clove flavors of a traditional Hefe. I was expecting a more substantial mouthfeel given it is unfiltered, but nonetheless the lightness works in this brew. Refreshing and easy to down, it's a perfect summer session thirst quencher.

A couple of pints from a fresh growler into a Victory glass.
A- sunrise looks like liquid honey with a nice mix of bright gold mixed with hazy orange. It looks gorgeous under some light, cant really see through it. A nice frothy white foam that fades leaving no lace.
S- A big blast of ripe bananers and spices mainly clove. Some wheat and yeast plus some earthy hops. A low dose of mild malts. Pretty much everything you need in a hefe.
T- The smell pretty much sums this up but this is one good tasting fresh hefe. Fresh ripe bananers straight off the vine. After that the spices come in with cloves up front. Than a small taste of sweet sugar or candy. This is backed by yeast and light malts.
M- A light bodied beer perfect for the summer. Sunrise has a nice carb going for it and that's fine by me, makes it much smoother than other versions i've had. A sweet aftertaste with more bananers.
D- At 5.7%% a few would suffice. I wish I would pick this up more often, but since hefe's are not my thing I thought a few would do. I would gladly pick up a case of this for a party, a excellent summer quaff.
