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.

deaconmike (360) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
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.

draft, typical cloudy wheat pour, aroma of hops. At first, I thought maybe this lead into the apa style, nice dry hopped flavors, well balanced, light bodied, with hints of lemon and bitterness. Nothing rude about this one.

Pours a clear pale yellow color with white head. Raw wheat, light citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty clean.

solidfunk (3585) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Ok wheat beer with some crisp malt and a generally lagery feel to it. Not a huge amount going on here, though. Light citrus hops aroma as well. Tap at Glenís Market.

ROBC3366 (512) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I am having this in a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking somewhat hazy golden yellow to orange color with one finger white foamy head that quickly dies and leaves a bubbly lacing. The smell had a super nice long inviting refreshing citrus aroma. Sweet fresh cut grass and a nice light bitter pine help to accentuate the "Summer"-Ness of this beer. The taste took all of the previously mentioned flavors and wrapped them up to let a super nice sweet sticky malty lemon flavoring come out. The aftertaste is refreshingly lemon sweet. On the palate, this one sits about a light altogether. Iím pretty sure I could pound this all day on the beach or on the boat. Overall, where the heck did this one come from, ST. Way to freaking go! This could quite possibly be one of my all-time favorites by ST and definitely ranks up there to one of the best Summer selections on the market.

Pours a clear, light golden. Lagerish nose with its corn sweetness. Corny, wheaty, fruity flavors. Easy drinking.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Golden hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing fizzy white head. No lacing. Water, lemon, skunk, light malt & light citrus aromas. Light bitter lemon hop up front with a malt and watery finish. Lively carbonation, dry on the palate.

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottled March 10, 2014.
Appearance: Perfectly clear amber hued golden body with a dense and creamy white head on top.
Aroma: Earthy and slightly skunky, straw comes to mind. The aroma is clean, but not too appealing.
Taste: Mildly hoppy with a slight lemon wedge flavor through it. The body is crisp with a slight straw flavor. Overall very mild with a slight lemon hint to it.
Palate: Light medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a decent hoppy wheat ale, though I would have preferred a different hop profile. This is solid, nothing to write home about, but worth a shot.
