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!!

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.
