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.

Pour is a hazy yellow. Aroma is super amped up coriander. If you close your eyes you could mistake this for orange juice. Flavor is a bit bland. Some lemon zest and a bit of wheat. Was the powerful smell there to hide the lackluster flavor? Nothing special.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2010 Very similar to Blue Moon, only more corriander/orange flavor. This beer has a wonderful cloudy/orangeish color. Truly does give you feelings of a summer sunset. Another high quality beer from the folks at Leinie’s!

Strong coriander punch in the mouth, overall a good wheat. Coriander is almost to strong however it fades to leave noters of pepper and licorice, very interestiing flavor. Alot of stuff going on in this beer, Kudos to Leinenkugel’s.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 An excellent ripe melon treat for a 90+ humid day matched only by the company of a new friend and a convertable ride. Light texture makes a refreshing drink with citrus overtones but nothing of wheat?? Smooth finish.

Aroma: citrus, lemon, moderate yeast, butter Appearance: average initial head-white, hazy, yellow/light golden Flavor: lightly sweet, short duration Palate: light body, watery, soft carbonation Overall: The smell is really great... but the taste is very light... it’s refreshing... there are a lot of flavors going on... but something seems off....

Draught at Old Chicago in Coralville, IA. Attractive cloudy yellow color with bubbly white head that laced the glass. Fruity, buttery aroma with a touch of coriander. Actually smelled like a combination of blueberries, raspberries, and oranges. Flavor was also fruity and wheaty. Slightly sweet. I thought this was going to be a blueberry wheat. Bzzzzz, wrong. Decent beer, though.

Pours a cloudy, golden/wheat color with a foamy, milky white head. Aroma of orange madelines, which turns a little nutty and burnt as it opens up. Creamy mouth carries flavors that seem "off". Lemon, orange peel, berries, wheat, clove and florals that in theory should work together nicely, but it’s really a bit of a mess. Finish lingers sour, fruity, soapy and confusing. Complex... in a bad way.

Awesome... I just scrolled down and noticed "Fruity Pebbles" which is another great aroma descriptor.

Hazy wheat pour with a small, creamy head. Loads of lavendar, coriander, sweet orange and Fruity Pebbles in the nose. This thing must be packed with spice additions. Unfortunately the wheat malt in the body isn’t substantial enough to balance the intense spices. Out of whack and over the top with loads of flavors that come off artificial in the end. Keep the sunset on the horizon and out of the bottle Leine.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a cloudy golden colored beverage with an average sized creamy head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was quite remarkable, very different, and frankly it surprised me. There was the distinct presence of citrus and coriander and an interesting sweet spiciness. There didn’t seem to be much if any malt or wheat in the aroma. The beer had a medium body with soft carbonation and a watery refreshing texture. The flavor starts off slightly sweet with little or no hop bitterness. The finish is fairly long and the sweet spiciness lasts throughout.

Poured a hazy orange with a nice creamy white head Aromas of citrus and lemon right of the bat. Flavor was mild not as bad as some other macro wheats.. Lots of corriander not a bad beer but a little on the fake side..
