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

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Draft at Rattle n hum. Poured a hazy super light golden color. Nose was hoppy. Flavor had a super light hop note but was on be flat side. This a great mowing the lawn beer. A few more bubbles would help,probably the pour.

33cl Bottle from De Molen, birthday gift. Slightly hazy golden colour, fluffy white head. Aroma of fruity hops, grapefruit, lychee, citrus, some wheat, really IPA like. Flavour is very IPA like as well, nice bitter and fruity hoppy flavours, wheat, good grapefruit bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, thick mouthfeel for the ABV. Very nice.

RasmusOtt (2389) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 Very fresh. There is so much hoppiness in there that it allmost taste like an IPA. Has all IPA hop notes along with some wheat as well. It is indeed to be enjoyed on a hot summerday!

Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle: Frotty white head. Smell is very hoppy (amarillo) and fruity (lemon and orange). Color is slightly hazy yellow. Taste is like a hoppy lemonade, not to sweet, but balanced well with some hints of sour (and fresh) taste. Taste the amarillo hops and water, slight hint of spices. Strange beer, though the low alcohol makes it interesting.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle sampled at Papsø’s on 8/30/09: Pours a transparent deep golden with a small clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malts and some fresh citrusy hops. Starts with average body and mild pale malty sweetness and grassy citrus hop balance before a crisp bittersweet finish. A pretty drinkable and well-balanced hoppy wheat ale.

Bottle. Clear golden, nice head. Citrus and mango hop aroma. Very refreshing, light bitter, lively carbonation. Very nice summer beer.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden straw with small creamy white head. Slight lacing. Great aromas of sweet malt, caramel and honey and citrus, predominantly grapefruit hops. Hop aromas initially dominate with the malt sweetness coming through as it warms. Flavours are initially quite sweet with hop bitterness coming through near the finish. Mouth feel is a little watery. I really enjoyed this beer.
