Hop Sun is Southern Tier’s summer seasonal wheat ale, and it’s a good one. (One more beer closer to finishing all these summer seasonals I’ve stored up!) I’ve found that wheat ales tend to be a good introductory beer for folks who aren’t traditionally beer drinkers, and I never hesitate to recommend Southern Tier’s offerings in this style. Hop Sun doesn’t disappoint. It’s a nice light, wheat ale that won’t startle a new beer drinker, it’s fairly dry in the middle and has just enough hop bitterness to make it a pleasant drink for hopheads like me as well.
I give it a 4.25 out out 5.
