When you think about drinking in the sun, you normally think of lager, or light beers, rather than a wheat beer. Think again.
Drinkin' The Sun is an American-style wheat beer that is the alcohol-free version of two brews by the same name, from the same brewery. One at 2.8% and another at 1.4% with this one the baby brother of the group at just 0.3%.
It's not quite sunshine in a glass, but if you're in search of an alcohol-free drink that you can share with your mates without needing to get a taxi home, then you're in luck.
Drinkin' The Sun: Taste Test
There's hops abound in the aroma along with the subtle sweetness that's characteristic of wheat beers. The pour is light, but it's got a nice body which stops it from being too watery.
The flavour is malty initially, with more of a wheat-cereal savoury flavour as it develops. It's very light and crisp, packed full of flavours from the wheat fields.
The aftertaste brings out the wheatiness and leaves you parched for more, encouraging you to take another sip as you drink in the beer and the sun (hopefully).
Drinkin' The Sun: Can Notes

The yellow background is a great backdrop for the blushed pink skin and bright blue hair of the lass, with the name unusually wrapped around the top of the can in bright blue. This has the very cool effect of giving the can a clean look, without ruining the design with words.
