Default Summer Commercial Beers

So summer beers are typically my least favorite- they have a tendency to taste like lemon pledge. BUT, I came in from planting my garden this afternoon, poured myself a Shock Top, and it is phenomenal! Have I just found the perfect summer beer? What are your favorite summer beers?

New Belgium has a new one... "Somersault" and it's pretty dang good. Nice citrusy hop flavor and very drinkable.

I've got two favorites: Bell's Oberon and Abita Purple Haze. Yes, you can get these year round, but to me, they're awesome summer beers.

I've also noticed that I drink more wheat beers in the summer, more dark ales in the winter, and IPAs in the fall and spring. Guess I kinda match the weather!

The first beer that comes to mind is Southern Tier's Hop Sun. In fact its the inspiration for my summer time beer that I brew every year now.
