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

Thanks yespr for this. The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Very zippy, huge head. Starts very intense hoppy, fresh, grasy - like a good IPA. Finish is weaker, a little bit metallically. Sill very drinkable. Good!

armando629 (2406) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 2, 2009
0,33 l bottle, bought in Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Poured with a minimal opalescent in the golden body, small but stable and good looking white head what diminishes slowly , leaves some lace and never disappeares fully. Nice resiny hop aroma with a light lactic acid perfume, mild fruitiness. Bitter, hoppy character leads the flavor beside some mild acidity, easy fruity and pine tastes. In my opinion the hop is too much, but good brew.

A faint nose of American hops a a tad bready malts. Taste is very weak; grapefruit and cucumber. Finish is bitter. This was a bad bottle. I will rerate!
