BEER OF THE MONTH: MAY 2015

 

Southern Tier Hop Sun

WHY I LIKE IT
Hop Sun is part of an essential summer survival kit. No amount of heat or humidity will get you down. This warm weather thirst-quencher is not your average wheat ale. Light and slightly dry, it is the addition of fresh hop flowers after fermentation that adds a necessary kick on a hot summer day. Hop Sun is mild enough to be a refreshing summer offering, but has just enough of a hop profile to keep your taste buds tingling for another sip.

Style: American wheat ale
Fermentation: Ale yeast, two varieties of hops, three varieties of malts
Flavor: Balance of malts and hops, pleasantly bitter finish, light sweetness from wheat
