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

A Mes rate. bottle at home.
Clean gold with a good white head and a decent amount of lace. Good Amarillo dominated nose but with some pleasing bready malt underneath, very slight cardboardy notes let it down but only a touch. Excellent flavour. Tastes just like an English cask ale. Really good bitterness, lots of citrus, just all round bright and breezy. Possibly just a little too much carbonation for this style of beer but the palate still seems to sit just right. Excellent lingering bitter finish. That’s all there is to comment on but it’s just bloody lovely. Could drink lots of this. Way to go Mikkeller.

TET (1623) - FINLAND - JUL 24, 2009
Golden beer with medium and long-lasting white head. Aroma is as typical amarillo: lot of tropical sweet fruits. Flavour is medium bitter, fresh fruits and nice bitterness in the end. As assumed, easy to drink but not watery. This beer based on succesfull hops with easy to drink, and so it is great beer to cool down summer heatness.

Have had this several times - both of the bottle and on draught. First time I tasted it i didnt feel there was much to it...next time it grew and by now I am a fan. Its so refreshing and is precisely what it says - a summer beer. It pours a light golden with a nice white top that has a foamy caracter. The nose is pretty hoppy with sweet undertones of citrusfruits. The taste is mild with a pretty sharp bitterness in the finish. The palate is medium with a creamy touch. Taste of hops, soaps, grapefruits and fresh (green) nuts. This brew is much different from most things ive had before... bring a box and some ice to the park... very drinkable

bierkoning (10172) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Blonde. Citrus and some oily hops in the aroma. Thin, but very tasty. Oily citric earthy hops dominate. Very refreshing top quality ale with a firm citric hopbitter aftertaste.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2009
Tap at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, June 2009. Golden color, ok white head. Aroma is floral and citric hops. Flavor is the same, with dry, fine bitterness in the finish. Light and refreshing.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2009
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.
