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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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 it’s horrid, but because it’s 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. I’m 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)
