3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Clear pale yellow with foamy white head. The aroma is wheat, citrus (lemon), and floral hops. The taste starts slightly sweet and transitions to a touch of bitterness. Given the name, I was expecting more hoppy bitterness; the hops are all in the aroma. The flavors are lemony, wheat and grassy. The carbonation is quite foamy throughout the experience. A decent beer for a summer afternoon, but not quite the hops I was hoping for.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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 it’s pretty refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle brought back by my wife from Rome. Slightly orange hint to this golden colour beer, topped with an off white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, wheat, malt and yeast. Some sweetness to finish. Rather thin body, with average carbonation. It’s ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
dark amber and clear in the glass, the nose is hoppy-floral. The beer starts smooth, easy to drink and slightly sweet. In the mainpart there are some nice floral hints, smooth slightly sweet malty body, nothing special. The aftertaste is smooth, nicely floral hopped, smooth sweetish-malty body.
Interesting brew, but beside the nice floral hints nothing special! --> 8/12/7/8

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another old summer beer rate. This one is like all the others, light on all fronts, dirnkable, but ultimately uninteresting.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Southern Tier Hop Sun is quite different for a wheat beer. Fresh hop aroma coming from a light amber pour with a decent head. Initial taste is citrus and pine hop character - - not what you’d expect from a wheat beer. I guess the yeast notes are in there but Hop Sun is very much like an IPA and wheat beer mixed.
