Hop Sun (Summer Wheat Beer) - Southern Tier Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this beer's head is two fingers thick with not too much lacing, and a medium gold clear body.

I smell biscuit malts and bright, earthy grains. Nothing really going in in the hop category.

Tastes like yeasty malts, a faint touch of hops, and a bit of citrus at the very end. Quite a collection of "summer tastes" , indeed. Nice and and refreshing.

The mouthfeel of this brew is quite smooth and clean.

I'll give Hop Sun (Summer Wheat Beer) - Southern Tier Brewing Company a 4.25 overall. This will probably will be a new warm weather staple for me.

Hop Sun (Summer Wheat Beer) brewed by Southern Tier Brewing Company, with an ABV of 5.10% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is rich with flavors. You pick up grains and hops. Now for the taste, it smooth but bold with flavor. You pick up on grains and malts in the taste of this brew. Then there is mild bitterness of hops at the end of this brew. Southern Tier Brewing Company did a nice job with this one. There is nothing overpowering about this brew. Hop Sun has a nice balance to it. The mouthfeel is nice clean and refreshing. This brew is a nice summer wheat beer. I like how Hop Sun (Summer Wheat Beer) is different from most wheat brews on the market. One thing that stands out with Hop Sun is, this brew is filtered. Overall I'm giving Hop Sun (Summer Wheat Beer) a 4.5 out of 5. I would buy this brew again.
