COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

onystrom (1318) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2010
Bottle. Amber colour with fine head. Nice hoppy amarillo aroma. Typically mikkeller IPA, even if its a wheat Ale... Bitter finish no malt flavour.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2010
Orange color, small white head; flowery and fruity hoppy aroma - tangerine, citrus; light body, moderate carbonation; flavor is a bit watery and mostly of bitter hops, a bit too economical in the fruity side and absolutely poor in terms of maltiness; also, taken into account that this is a wheat beer, the main ingredient was quite well hidden. I wasn’t very impressed but, I have to admit, hops do save much.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2010
Almost clear golden orange body with short head. Peach in the aroma and somewhat in the taste as well as orange although not as sweet as last nights Wheat Ale, a touch of grapefruit for the bitterness. Easily drinkable.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2010
(on bottle) This is my favorite beer of ´09. Light yellow, hoppy, very fresh hops, almost elderflowerish. Dry, fresh, perky. like liking hopcones and lemonsorbet, whilest drinking summer sun on the beach; it´s a grand summer beer for sure.

First beer ever I tried from Mikkeller. if the 3,6 white beer is already this good I can’t wait what the future has in store.

thebeertourist (4774) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle from Kris Wines. Hazy golden, big white head. Solid Amarillo nose, followed by bitter, grapefruity hop flavours. Not very complex, but very uncompromising. Hints of oranges. Quite light body. Nice and thirst-quenching.
