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.

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.

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 thatís 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 canít say that I was to impressed with this beer.

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 itís 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!

3fourths (8598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle. Smells like blueberries, or rather like a poorly made blueberry wheat. Thereís 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 itís hot and sunny outside. Still, not very good compared to others in the style.

theraven1971 (13) - USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold, light head. Aroma is fruity, very fresh, with hints of spice. Taste is a nicely layered combo of orange and corriander. First taste is sweet, next is spicy. Very pleasant to drink.

suprised by this one, was expecting the same old macro version of a wheat. heavy citrus made it an enjoyable summer beer.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 I love beer made with Coriander and this one is terrific. I couldnít quite place the flavor at first but it just was so refreshing. The sent of the beer is wonderfully sweet. The beer itself isnít sticky sweet like Linies Honey. Let me give this a big thumps up. I expected little because I didnít really like other beers of this brand. A cool surprise that perhaps isnít in my top ten but it is awful close.
