Southern Tier Hop Sun Summer Wheat Beer

Beer No. 19 – Southern Tier Hop Sun Summer Wheat Beer

STYLE: American Pale Wheat Ale

ABV: 5.1%

LOOK: Pale sunflower, very light. A creamy head to cut the nose and mouth would have been nice.

NOSE: Made with a single hop variety, you have to ask how closely it is related to varietas chronic. Sniff, sniff, pass.

MOUTH: Tall grass, lemon rind, floral. Refreshing. A testament to the cynical that not every beer has to be complex — that straightforward and solid can be worthy attributes too.
