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

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy yellow color with a foamy, white head. Spicy aroma of fruits like peach and grapefruit and some malts. Flavor is quite bitter and actually a lot more dry then I expected. It quite harsh on the palate, not very smooth, but still easily drinkable and quite refreshing.

M’ARCOlizzo (31) - ITALY - JAN 21, 2010
Color giallo oro ed abbondante schiuma bianca. Aroma molto fresco, a tratti fruttato, e con pungenti note agrumate date dal luppolo. In bocca il gusto è caratterizzato dall’abbondante luppolatura. Il corpo molto leggero, ma non annacquato, la rende di facile beva e molto godibile. Finale moderatamente amaro e secco caratterizzato dal luppolo.

flemmingwillum (1193) - Nysted, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2009
This beer is a hazy light golden wheat, with a dense head that could last a little longer. Aroma is sweet from the malts, reveals the amarillo hops and maybe even gives a roasted impression! unfortunately the aroma is not very obvious, and I expected more. Flavor is quite flowery from the amarillo hops, and the malts are subdued. Finish is overly bitter for a wheat, and it actually turns harsh which is a big shame, as it otherwise would have been quite interested, though not balanced. Palate is very creamy for a 3,9 % alcohol beer.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2009
A little hazy golden colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of hop bitter, with fruits like citrus. The taste is bitter dry, fresh fruity and a little sweet. The aftertaste is bitter with some sweets. I’ll think a nice refreshing beer in the summer.

Hazy golden color with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma with fruity and grassy notes. Taste is also hoppy with notes of citrus and light malts. Very refreshing summer beer.
