COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you've ever experienced a Northwoods sunset, you know it's a moment unlike any other. So instead of putting it into words, we captured the Northwoods' finest moment in every batch of our all-new Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat. Brewed with malted wheat, Cluster hops and natural coriander, Sunset Wheat has a soothing taste that will leave you speechless. It's like your very own sunset in a bottle.

Honey golden color with a thin white head. Smells like candy and corriander. Initial taste reminded me of the Smarties sugar candy. It just tasted like candy to me, with some corriander. Almost like orange Kool-Aid powder. Too sweet with not enough beer in it for me.

Cloudy golden, aroma of berries with a crisp light flavor. Good and cheap. A nice American beer, better then most american beers

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 Pours hazy light yellow with a thin, mostly maintained wispy white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, raspberry, and honey. Tastes of oranges, crisp wheat, and raspberry. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with foamy, but lively carbonation.

I bit too fruity for my tastes. Almost like 7UP meets Boulevard Wheat. Wont buy again.

Pours a cloudy, yeasty, pale yellow with a decent white head that coats the glass somewhat. Has a Bazooka bubblegum aroma. Spicy coriander taste with an artificial fruitiness along with some minor hop bitterness. Interesting. Not bad at all, yet not worth seeking out.

shrubber85 (9140) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle. Strong orange/lemon-lime and wheat aroma. Lightly cloudy orange-yellow color with moderate head. A strong berry-orange flavor (like Fruit-Loops). An average American wheat that’s heavy on the fruit side.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2006 On tap at Digiovannis. Pours a hazy light orange color with a small head. Aroma of wheat grain and fruit. Taste a litle odd with a hint of blueberry and corriander. I can’t say that I was to impressed with this beer.

JaegerMonster (13) - Willowbrook, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2006
This is obviously what the Oompa-Loompas ended up with when they juiced violet beauregard. Those crafty Leinenkugels! Pours a beautiful orange with a pure white head. Looks and smells like citrus, but when I tasted this for the first time I was shocked, amused and fell immediately in love with it’s blueberry goodness. Has a heady wheat flavor with hints of blueberry, orange, lime and apricot. Very refreshing with a slightly tart finish that leaves you reaching for the next sip. An unexpected but wholeheartedly appreciated find this summer. On tap at Comiskey Park and worth seeking out!

very nice flavor with an unexpected citrusy aroma-really enjoy it-one of my favorites

3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle. Smells like blueberries, or rather like a poorly made blueberry wheat. There’s some light orange soapy scents in there too, but the nose is dominated by a funky blueberry scent. Appearance is proper for an unfiltered wheat. Light and smooth up front, a little more rough on the palate after that, with those blueberry wheat flavors showing up... finishes with a light creamy texture. Really far off from what a wheat beer should be like, but I guess I can see drinking this when cold and it’s hot and sunny outside. Still, not very good compared to others in the style.
