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.
