Danish: Drink’in the Sun er navnet på den længe ventede sommerøl fra Mikkeller. Der er tale om en amerikansk hvede-øl der er brygget med ale-gær og, til alles store overraskelse, masser af humle. Humlen er Amarillo, alkoholprocenten er 3,9 og det fremgår af etiketten, at man med fordel kan bælle den direkte fra flasken. Nu mangler vi bare noget sol og en grill-fest

It is slightly hazy, warm golden with a creamy and very firm and lasting head. The aroma has a lot of fruity hops and citrus, that leaves almost no room for the wheat. The flavour is very hoppy too with notes of dry citrus, fruit a light bitterness and a soft feeling from the wheat. It is very refreshing, quenching and delicious, and I’m always in awe when I meet a beer with a low ABV and a LOT of flavour. The only minus is that I would have liked a little more room for the wheat flavour.

Bottled. Slightly hazy golden, staying frothy white head. Good clean amarillo aroma, citric fruits, little pine and white pepper, sweet grapefruit and pineapple in there too. Flavor has similar hop profile, loads of grapefruit, malts are totally secondary. Nicely long and crisp bitter finish. Light bodied, not too watery thou, refreshing strongish carbonation. Very drinkable session beer, if it was a tad cheaper I’d be drinking this like water.

JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Gorgeous straw with fine non-homogenous foam. Fabulous aroma due to the amarillo hop. Grassy. I apparently love it! Not top grade simply because it is not very complex. Too bitter for my taste. Fresh tingling, watery, sharp. Great for summer, but a bit on the bitter side. This wears off when you’ve had a few, though. Purchased 5 for 100dkr in Kihoskh

madsberg (11411) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Draught @ Lord Nelson. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Light herbal and flowery aroma. Flavour has some spice, flowers, grass and a light sweetness. Quite smooth but a bit thin. Dry. Is light bitter in the end. Quite nice eventhough it’s not as intense, as I would like, but definately a decent thirstquencher.

Draught@Plan B. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is lovely hops along with some fruity, flowery and milldly grassy notes. Flavour is extreme hops, yet very drinkable and killing your thirst.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2009
Orange with a low head. Salty aroma with some notes of flowers and orange. The flavour is surprisingly bitter for a wheat ale - cannot tell the difference between this and an American Pale ale. It’s pretty much all amarillo - but then again that’s not necessarily bad.

tlind2 (1605) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2009
330 ml bottle. Pale golden color, white head. Hoppy aroma with citric notes. Bitter grapefruity flavor with a touch of caramel. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Lots of flavor for the relatively low ABV -- can’t say I picked up on the wheat, though. Now if only the price were more reasonable...
