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.

Let me start by saying I didnít know what to expect, but based on their other excellent selections, I was eager to try it. That being said, didnít love it. It came off more on the bitter side than the wheat side and had a lot of cereal elements to it. It was a very yellowish color and smelled more like a pilsner to me, crisp and clear, but not much in the way of wheat or hops. Itís a smooth but mediocre beer. You can drink it, but not fall in love with it.

Hoppy and fresh. Light crisp palate. Light golden and slightly cloudy. Hops are pronounced, which tend to overshadow the wheat. Good summer beer.

Bottle - Nice light yellow color with an average head. Lemon and wheat aroma and taste. A little hoppy, medium bitter. A perfect summer beer.

12oz Bottle - Poured a golden yellow with a very thin white head. Nice aroma that tapered off. In the nose... I get a mash up of flowers, like honeysuckle and hibiscus maybe...with some citrus peel. The flavors are of grass, lemon, pine, and a bit of cereal grain. Itís okay. Also, Iím drinking this in March.... and this is a summer brew. Not sure how fresh this one is. Hmmm.

Nice yellow/amber color with a good head. Lemon, citrus aromas; not very strong. Very crisp, refreshing taste with floral, citrus accents and a dry, slightly bitter finish. Very nice beer for a summer day.

Golden pale appearance. Very wheat smell. But had a bit of the mouthful of an ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a beatiful golden with a subtle aroma. Nice taste and seems different than most wheats.

Bottle. Seems like itís been forever since I had a Hop Sun. Moderately dark for the style, full-bodied. A little bit of hops but fades quickly into a nice sweetness. Not too heavy.
