COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing Redhook Sunrye, a light, refreshing summer beer brewed with six barley malts, including a touch of organic rye. The opalescent golden color of Sunrye is a result of its unfiltered nature. Light and crisp, this brew was made for slaking summer thirsts.

Light, sweet malty aroma. Rye is not too evident (mercifully). Clean white-glove finish. Utterly innocuous and perfect for this hot-as-hell summer evening. This alcoholic Gatorade would suffer immensely if rated in the dead of winter.

Redhook wasnít kidding about this beer being unfiltered....big chunks of grain and hops floating in it. It is a nice ale....grainy with a little shot of hops. Itís a session beer alright.

Great ale. Love the rye that is left in this beer. Tastes great on a hot summer day after doing yard work.

Call me crazy, but this is a nice summer beer, enjoyed while playing volleyball. No doubt, Iíd have another for that purpose. Rating this as a blonde ale, it does well. Aroma was a bit grainy and of rye. Flavor was also grainy, malty, with a bitter, lightly tart rye finish. Almost seemed like there was some wheat in there too. Body was a little thin, but the flavor not lacking for a blonde. Ample carbonation, maybe too high for a beer designed for drinkability.

9/4/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is very light with a sour malt tone forward with rye being slightly evident. Appearance is very clear yellow with a low white head. Flavor is sour/sweet malt forward with light hop flora and med/high bittering. Texture is very light with a high carb bite. Overall, bright and refreshing but low on rye character.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is rye bread, malt and floral. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet citrus with a crisp finish. Easy to drink, a good blond ale from Redhook.

I like the smooth aged malt flavor. I find that same flavor in Templeton Rye whiskey. This could be the next emerging beer trend. Those people that rated this thinking “Summer Wheat” should try it again with out an expectation, it is a really great beer.

2007: Looks like your average B/M/C fare. Light piss-yellow. Only difference is a full half finger of head. Transparent, light carbonation. No lace. Scent is a three-headed monster of wheat, orange and ale. Not like a witbier. Light but nice. Orange/wheat combo dominates. Nice ale flavor with wheat and orange bringing up the rear. Itís an ale first, but with a dash of a wit. Light and fruity. Feels thicker than an ale. Less light than it looks. An ale with some extras. Sweet but based in sweet/yeast beer. Refreshing.
