Notes/Commercial Description:
A flavorful, hoppy wheat beer, Drink’in the Sunbelt is the result of the first of two collaborations between Jester King and Mikkeller, the renowned Danish “gypsy brewer”. It takes its inspiration from another light, hoppy, sessionable wheat beer that Mikkeller had previously made, called “Drink’in the Sun”.

3.6/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a champagne style glass.

Appearance: Cloudy straw yellow with a fluffy white head about two fingers thick that slowly fades to a thin layer and clings to the side of the glass.

Aroma: Up front fruity hop notes ranging from citrus to grapefruit, with light spicy notes from the yeast.

Taste: Citrus and orange notes with subtle spicy yeast characteristics.

Mouthfeel: Light body with too much carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: It's better then most of the style, but I think carbonation was too much and at the end there was a thick layer of trub in the bottle that came flowing into my glass.

3.43/5  rDev -7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a clear gold with lots of bubbles. Tremendous foamy head that settles eventually leaving sporadic sticky lacing.

Smell is great. A nice wheat base with some crisp clean citrus aroma.

Taste is a bit of a let down after the appearance and smell. Very little of the wonderful citrus from the nose makes an appearance in the taste. Really just a bit of wheat, finishing with a sharp spicy bitterness.

Fairly light and medium-high carbonation levels.

Just ok. If more of the citrus made a flavor appearance this could be a very good beer. As is it's good for a lighter ABV beer, but not much more.

Thanks to Poonamibaxter for this one!

App- A medium burnt orange with some yellow highlights towards the bottom of the glass. Gigantic 2-1/2 finger white head. Medium receding with some partial lace.

Smell- A nice light refreshing aromatic beer. A little wheat base of course followed by a vibrant hop and citrus note.

Taste- Very crisp and refreshing. Opens with more citrus notes and then the hops follow. The wheat seems very mellow. This is a very good hot day beer. The 4.2 feels a lot bigger on the flavor.

Mouth- Light bodied and a good amount of medium carbonation. Bubbles across the tounge and nice residual citrus flavors.

Drink- 2 for 2 on Jester King. I like what they do. This was clean/crisp/refreshing and light. A nice beer to sit with for a while. Opens with good flavors and leaves some good flavors for a while.
