COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pour Hop Sun Summer Wheat Beer into a pint glass, give it a long whiff and you’ll realize that this isn’t 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 Sun’s bright finish. Enjoy Hop Sun all summer long as a perfect balance to your outdoor recreation. Summer never tasted so good.

malrubius (3042) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle from Julios. Clear gold with white head and lace. Mild spicy aroma with some bready and honey. Sweet malty honey nuts toast with mild herbal fairly dry finish. Light body refreshing carbo. Wheat ale is probably the worst beer style, but if I had to have one, this wouldn’t be too bad.

on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Nice aroma of fruit and malt. Clear straw amber color, ivory head that drops to a cover, star field of lace. Taste is light malt with fizz and light hops. Easy-going, and mild, but, also easy to drink.

Flight #3 at the brewery with ebone1988. The pour is a darker clear golden yellow with no head and a few spots of lace. The aroma isn’t really there. There is a light wheat and some decent malt, but it’s boring and lacking. The flavor is just as light and boring. The wheat offers a light crispness and a of malt on the back end. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a lacking carbonation and a lingeringly bland malt to go with a quick fading wheat. I’m surprised this is as high by style as it is. There’s nothing here.

ebone1988 (2162) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Flight at Southern Tier with koleminer20. Aroma is wheat, grassy, sweet and floral. Appearance is darker golden, off white head, clear. Taste is pilsner-y, wheat, earthy hops, simple. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, refreshing, earthy hops and sweet malt aftertaste. Overall, this one is pretty good.

Draft at the source. I’ve had this a million times, but apparently never ticked or rated it. Pours a clear, pale yellow with small bubbly white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat, grass, hay, and metal. Flavor has a metallic taste to it, lemon, grassy, wheat, straw. Light body, thin texture, lively carbonation, easy finish. Decent warm weather and summer beer. Never used to get a metallic taste though. I prefer this over the new Lemon Drop version.

Pale yellow/gold. Normal white head. Clean weak floral nose. Slight bitterness, moderate floral taste. Mind bitter finish. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, interesting wheat/IPA combo.

3.5
kevinator (2789) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2016
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.

2.9
Cajun (548) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 27, 2016
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. It’s okay. Also, I’m drinking this in March.... and this is a summer brew. Not sure how fresh this one is. Hmmm.
