Default Summer brew recommendations

Hi folks. I do a lot of camping and a group of us periodically hold a rally. I've got 2 to attend this Summer, and I'd like to take a brew that says Summer. What style beer says Summer to you?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I like small beers for the summer. Pale, moderate hops, moderate malt, clean finish. Pilsner grain bills with a low ester ale yeast. Milds, Ordinary Bitters, regular Belgians.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I was thinking about a Belgian wit. Or just about any wheat beer. But I'm not entirely sure. I tend to prefer darker brews, but in the Summer, they are a bit heavy. That's why I'm looking for more suggestions.
