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

vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Draft @ RnH Mikkeller event. Light golden pour with white head. Slight hoppy citrus, a bit of wheat y notes. A little low on carbonation, but sessionable none the less.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2010
Bottle @ home. Aroma is loads of hops, some wheat, hint of lemon, nice malt note. Flavour is quite bitter, yet quite thin. The oldness of the bottle definitely doesn’t help here. I can tell this was pretty awesome, but it has faded too much for a really high rating. Definitely gonna try the 10.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle n Draft. Pours a pale golden body with a white head. Dry dusky hop tones, light caramel and earth hints of bread and citrus. A bit vegetative, bitter earth and drying. Okay.

Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 17, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of Anton Flükiger. It pours a pale amber beer with a decent head. Caramel, marshmallows and citrusy hops in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Unfortunately there are some spring onion components sneaking in. Faint dry finish. A pretty good beer. Thanks a lot Toni!

lusikka (7814) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010
330 ml bottle. Rated @ 12.9.2009.
Yellow colour with a good white head. Very citrus-concentrated aroma with hints of hops. Light taste with a hints of floral hops which create a nicely dry finish. Very lively carbonation. Easy to drink especially at summer.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2010
Bottled. A slightly hazy bronze coloured beer with a white head and little lace. A zesty citric aroma with decent hops. Same in the mouth. A really good Summer ale with good hops. Almost like a nouveau English golden.

MikeKeller (955) - Kemi, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2010
Bottle from K-citymarket Sello BB 08/06/10. Beautiful hazy orange beer with white head. Sweety grassy and fruity hoppy aroma. Very bitter and dry grassy hoppy taste. Good body and for the ABV.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2010
[email protected] Very nice floral aroma. Hazy, pale yellow, irregular head. Mainly hops and bitterness flavour with some citrus. Thinnish. Refreshing.

3.6
NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2010
Golden colored brew. Nice hopped aroma. Flavor has got fruits, hops and some wheat in the end. Nice dry bitterness. Good.

3.4
zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Tap - fruity and light, peaches, pine citrus and caramel. finishes a bit astringent. I wish more brewers would release low ABV beers that don’t suck.
