 This article suggests you will be able to see the full disk Earthrise from the lunar surface:

Earth Rising
Earth as seen from the Moon is always in the same place – true or false? It depends.

 While most locations on the Moon's surface would only be able to see partial disk Earthrises, at the lunar terminator (separator between far side and near side of Moon) and at the lunar poles, you'll be able to see the full disk Earthrise.

 Anyone want to do a try in Kerbal Realism mode to show what this would look like? Intriguing question: will we see a "huge Earth illusion" like we see a "huge Moon illusion" when looking at the full disk?
