Listed as an "Imperial Summer Wheat Beer", a new release based on Hop Sun, but bigger.

Pours clear dark gold with a quickly fading head.

Aroma is a good balance of citrus hops, slight grassy tones, and fresh, whole-grain wheat bread.

Taste is big on hops as is the norm for Southern Tier. More grapefruit, a bit of pepper, mild pine. The bottle states that Uber Sun uses only centennial both in the kettle and for dry hopping. Moderate bitterness, some mild alcohol heat, yet light and smooth in body. Think crisp american wheat beer (but big), not spicy wit nor yeasty hefe.

Not the best choice for a summer session beer due to the high ABV, but it does highlight the flavors of the style especially well. Another far-too-drinkable-for-its-size addition to Southern Tier's allready excellent lineup.
