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.

berkshirejohn (4961) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegmanís, Buffalo, NY. Clear amber with a thin white head; grainy aroma; grainy body with a sharp citrus taste; and a dry, sour, floury finish.

S_Side_Smitty (550) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours light yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is an interestingly dank hoppy wheat aroma. Taste is similar to aroma with biscuity hops up front (if that makes any sense), more biscuit in the mid palate, but then the hoppy bitter finish kicks in for a pleasant finish. No banana or clove in this wheat ale. Just refreshing and lightly bitter.

Jur (442) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Draught @ Flying Saucer, Addison. Pours clear gold, with - quickly fading - bright white head. Crisp nose, some hops, citrus, little wheat. Fresh flavour, quite malty, lemon, some grass and hops. Original take.

reberiii (399) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Nice summer wheat beer. It is as the label would make you think it would be: light on the tongue with some wheat texture (maybe a smidge of rye? Could just be some hop spicy), clean with more aroma of hop than actual hop bitter/taste punch. Could probably polish off quite a few of these on a hot day.

pkbites (702) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
Looks like a macro. Average looking pour with head that dies quickly. Odd lemon grass flavor with light hops. Rather dryfinish. Iím not real big on wheat beers so that may explain my lower rating than others. This isnít horrible it just isnít great either. Tap at Cafe Lulu, Milwaukee.

probstblueribbon (3212) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a fair, bright white head. Aroma: Bright, zingy citrus, pine, tropical fruits, a touch of cat pee, light biscuit and bready malts, a little peppery, quite refreshing. Palate: Medium body with fairly full, velvety effervescence. Flav.: Much the same as the nose with possibly a bit more tropical fruit, lots of citrus zest, somewhat peppery, minimal malt presence; dry with decent bitterness and a zippy citrus/resin finish.

Nice job.

Maverick34 (2487) - New York, USA - APR 20, 2014
Golden pour from draft. White Lacey head. Hefty grapefruit and resin, little lemon. Not too wheat. OK session beer.

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2014
Draft. Golden yellow color with white head. Aroma is wheat and light malts along with some bright hops, a tad bit of citrus, and a little floral/grass. Taste follows the nose. Not a lot going on, but itís pretty refreshing.

vtafro (4414) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2014
Draft. Golden pour with white head. Light citrus, grassy aromas. Very light citrus and other light hop flavors that come out a little more on the finish.
