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 nice american wheat beer with a larger thanusual dose of amarillo hops. served cold, and it was ok right away, but the grassy hops were all that was going on. as it warmed, the mouthfeel softened nicely and the wheat flavor came out more. nice beer in a style i usually do not care for, but like so many Mikkeller beers, a little pricey."

Draft revival at bistro on bridge. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma has citrus and light lemon zest. The taste is earthy, light bitter, and very dry.

33 cl bottle @ the park next to KKK Arabia. Rated on 07.08.2009
Aroma is somewhat fruity with apricot, some pineapple and wheaty notes. Flavour has fruity hops, pineapple, some citrus, wheat and distant yeasty notes. Slightly watery but still quite perfect for this weather.

Slightly hazy gold beer. Crisp palate but turns frothy quickly. Light citrussy hops that manage to pack some bitterness. Finishes softish with some minerals. A good flavour for it’s abv and a great session beer - which I guess was the point!
