COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pour Hop Sun Summer Wheat Beer into a pint glass, give it a long whiff and youíll realize that this isnít your average wheat beer. Filtered to a golden clarity and dry-hopped to perfection, Hop Sun is a fantastic session ale in which flavors of wheat, barley and hops co-mingle to a refreshing and zesty conclusion. Hints of lemon and sweet malts waft to the fore as a touch of bitterness contributes to Hop Sunís bright finish. Enjoy Hop Sun all summer long as a perfect balance to your outdoor recreation. Summer never tasted so good.

northropfrye (1950) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
Nice hoppy aroma and light thin amber body with a thinnish palate. Taste is semi-bitter, minimal really, but some resin and malts. Not bad for the wheat ale style which is often quite bad. Decent.

NikkTwist (1397) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy golden pour with light white foam. Body feels a slight fuller than the average wheat bear. Taste a bit more golden. Gently toasted Challah bread. Notable citrus notes. Clementines. Golden raisins. Pineapples. Lemon pie. Smooth front. Bitter finish. Not a great beer but very noble for the style. The hops add a nice shiny body to an otherwise standard wheat/ESB.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
A: Second consecutive piss ale here. Brilliant clarity. Shredded sheet like a used ghost costume, broken with a central cap and super thin collar. Yellow, straw color. (3) S: Difficult for me to smell this - not because itís horrid, but because itís just not putting out (see: disappointing junior prom). Some hints of corn and lemon. Not much else for me. (2) T: Whew, the faint hints of corn and lemon - those are here. Those are winning....No, bi-winning! This is quite violent on the palate for me. Like someone squeezed a lemon into my mouth and gave me a backer of watered-down corn juice. Iím not privy to this. Some bitterness. (1.5) M: Thin and highly carbonated. Fairly dry finish. (2) O: Nope. Not on board with this one. (1) Serving type: bottle 05-29-2011

JHillAustin49 (69) - round rock, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 Pours golden wheat with thin white head and very active carbonation. Lots of citrus, honey and spice with mild hopiness on the smell and taste. Leave a nice bittersweet aftertaste. Another good pick from the Southern Tier team.

A: Golden Straw Hue, Passes Lot of Light, Mild Head Ring, Mild Lacing S: Wheat, Orange T: Lemon, Wheat M: Decent Carbonation, Light Bodied, Semi Dry Overall, a drinkable wheat beer but not much to chase after.

Light gold color, clear, lasting white head Expressive floral nose Medium body, thin texture Bitter on the attack but a touch of honeyed sweetness follows quickly. Lasting bitter finish. Floral, biscuity, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johnnnniee (2044) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle from Harvest Market Not ready for summer to go away. Pours a crystal clear light golden color with a nice fluffy white head that persists forever. Smells of lemon, cracked grain, light sugar and earthy and citrus hops. The flavor is light and refreshing with a spicy wheat grain against a light sweet sugary malt offset with some light lemony citrus hop. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice flavorful light easy drinking lawnmower beer.

fiammanghilla (427) - Genova, ITALY - SEP 16, 2013
Bottiglia 355ml, ordinata su domus birrae e bevuta a casa. Chiara con schiuma evanescente. Al naso un leggero sentore di luppolo. In bocca finemente carbonata, poco corpo, speziata e luppolata. Simile ad una saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Love this one. Really citrusy and hoppy. Super refreshing and good like all other southern tier beers. Pours light yellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
